Thank you, fact is I am not bias in any way, people are free to believe what they want and I am ok with that.

It is when their beliefs become harmful or hurtful to others that bothers me, no matter the religion or decision to be atheist.

Sadly it seems very few God fearing people no matter the religion, practice what they preach. Christian's/Catholic's, Muslim's, Jew's etc. I am not saying their actions equate to a false religion, certainly not, I believe in one myself but imagine a world where all of these religion's practiced exactly what they preached.

It is apparent now to me as an adult that the religious belief of most people now is merely an excuse to harm and hurt other's, sad. From Christians waving sign's saying God Hates Homosexuals to Muslim's saying Death to This or That Country or Person's. Very rarely do we see signs of Love, Acceptance, Forgiveness etc.

You know, what the reason for a God is actually for.

Having faith in something beyond your 5 senses, a creator/god, eternal life/energy should not be confused with human nature. Unfortunately some people will twist religion, information, whatever they can in an effort to gain power and control.

Plenty of good in the world if you don't get caught up in corruption and stay vigilant, kind of makes you wonder if a "God" really came first.

I agree, our human nature is not entirely good and we see that on a daily basis all around the world. That is why when people say I am representative of religion X and go on to behave in a bad way you have to wonder if they are simply using the religion as an excuse to hate.

Rather than associating Christianity/Catholicism/Muslims/Judaism etc with love, acceptance and all that good stuff we immediately think who hates what and who wishes to kill whom. That is NOT the way it should be and all involved should be ashamed of using their religion for that purpose. That pretty much sums it up for me personally, instead we should think of what each is good for and how each is willing to accept or adopt us because they care about they are told to do.
