you act like democrats can't be religious, they have the black vote, perhaps the most religious race of people in the states today, a good lot of them are religious nutjobs, and they still vote democrat.


my problem is you think religion causes no problems, and everyone should just stay out of organized religion's way. religion affects way too many policy decisions, and in a negative way.

Are you kidding me??? I think organized religions that use it for power are the worst people on the planet. Just look at the middle east, it's filled with atrocities of basic human rights.

I don't believe any religion has any place in Politics or Government.

You have the right to what you believe, but your believe system does not belong to a whole nation because our nation is filled with people who are Buddhists, Athesists, Christians, Hindus... ect...

But you cant keep somones base beliefs out of policy. Like if a politician thinks the earth is 6000 years old and God created the grand canyon, that guy shouldn't be leading a science or climate change committee, but it happens all the time. Is happening. And it is just being willfully ignorant, choosing to ignore facts. Major difference when your beliefs are bat **** crazy, you shouldn't be allowed at the table, and we as a people need to start saying something about it.

If it wasn't so detrimental to real progress I would be all for religious views, but some people, and notably politicians, take it way too far.

hmm... well I can see is there views can go hand in hand with politics just like any atheist would.

Just like you have the right to give your view point... That's why it's a democracy.

I don't know many people that bring what you pointed out about science, if I did meet that person I would tell them thats great they believe that, but we have to go by what's happening in the world and what to do about it from all points of view. Not just theres

I hope you're not disagreeing with me, here? You do know that, that comment was used to express what religious organizations think, not what I think, right? This part sounds like you're disagreeing with me as if I wrote that last part not to quote my bashing of religious nutjobs, but like I said it myself...


EDIT: Sorry, I had to post that because your post kinda made me feel like I was moving backwards in having people here know my beliefs and all. I've only ever supported ANYONE's right to be who they want to be. I feel like I have to explain that all over again just so people understand where I'm coming from. I swear I thought my post made sense, but that last line was taken out of context, I don't know... I'm having a crappy day, so if I'm ranting I apologize.

ss was playing fairness nazi, and that **** is useless in a real society.

not everyone's opinion is worth listening to, or even considering.

and just to be pedantic, the united states is not a democracy, we are a constitutional republic.

I don't think you can say that Islam is a religion that promotes paranoia, violence and fear, then go on to say that you are not bashing Muslims. I think it is truly unfair to say that about Muslims, in general. After all, I believe any religion can inspire paranoia, violence and fear. At the end of the day, it comes down to the practitioners of these religions and how they conduct themselves. As Justin have illustrated, there are atheist, Christian and Muslim bigots out there, no questions about that. I think your attempt to paint Islam in a negative light is unjust and unfair.

Then again, hey, I think you already have FranklinTard to deal with. Good luck.

I understand, but at the end of the day it's about the practitioners, not the religions. There are primitive ideologies in all religions, but if the practitioners want to practice them in the 21st century, then it is the problem with the practitioners. Stoning a woman to death is the same as saying that God hates dead soldiers. It's all about the practitioners taking things to the extreme.

How is it a cult, but Christianity isn't? Both share the same format and are rooted in the same religious commonalities that the ancient pagan religions had, like the Chinese, the Romans, the Greeks, the Phoenicians, and the Scandinavians-- aside from the obvious differences, they all have the same imagery. Look it up, nearly every religion on Earth has the same interchangeable symbolism. But really, I've never understood the differences between a "cult" and a "religion". How do we differentiate them, honestly?

I don't think I need to state this, but Christianity doesn't exactly have an unblemished history. It's full of violence, discrimination, and racism. Islam, while tarnished by radicals today, was not always violent. For a long time, they were considered to be very peaceful and progressive. Let me be abundantly clear and say that I'm not knocking Christianity or any religion. There's just very few religions on Earth with a lily-white history. I can only think of maybe two, such as Buddhism and Shintoism. Trying to cover up the ugly part of the history of something you love isn't a great idea.

They are probably the better of the lot, but they are not free from violence either.

I'm actually with ss on his anti Islam. Christianity is nowhere near as scary anymore, maybe hundreds of years ago, but not now.

And Buddhists and Muslims have been at war for years, so don't tell me Buddhists are these great peace lovers either, just forget that propoganda.

Maybe all major religions have violent phases. Maybe in a century, it'd be the Scientologists to take over –*with laser guns.

You'd be surprised at how established Scientology is in Asia. It's only a matter of time, guys.

True Islam is not a cult - sub-groups like the Taliban have twisted the religion to mean something that is not meant to be.

disagree, the large portion of the religion doesn't support free speech. they want people murdered for expressing themselves.

hell even cat stevens now supports the death of people over drawing the prophet.

that religion is scary. much scarier than scientology.
