I've always found it odd that some crazy people use god as a reason why they commit murder and such. It is also funny that people think that people who do this are even more crazy because they say " god told me to do it" which I did get either. If I said God saved my life by telling me to do xyz everyone would say praise God etc.

Is there some designated mental illness that causes people to blame it on God? Why God? I don't get it.

OK maybe this post isn't making sense lol.

I think it is people looking for an excuse to do bad things. Twisting religion into something it isn't to justify it in themselves.

Some psychologist have actually proven that these people really believe that God told them to do it.Even when the person is committed they continue to believe it..

People need an excuse so they dont sound like the lone culprit..

And some people turn to religion after they murder, so then can feel absolved..whatever, lol


How`s my pregnancy doing?

But crazy people don't make excuses. Maybe a sane person who is trying to act crazy might use it as an excuse lol IDK

Some people are actually mentally unbalanced.

And sometimes, people commit great atrocities in the name of god.

Both are tragic.

When the little voices tell one to do bad things one may be schizophrenic. When the little voices tell one to do good or bad things it may also just be regular conversational banter one has with oneself when he or she is deciding what to do. God is just an excuse or a reason people make up to explain something when they believe it to be so, even though I believe that's living in fairy land. :)

But whatever gets one through the day....

I agree very tragic. I just can't make sense out of why God? Could it be religion abuse from being brought up under strong religious influences?

Oh yeah, I remember, the title of the post was "Is Religion an Excuse?". It was a couple of days ago I think.
