i'm a person of faith, but not of religion.. i mean, i actually believe religion is a form of evil. think about it, the first/biggest sin of man is to control his neighbor, right? so what's a religion? it's a structure of control which faithful can form their faith into a social "perfection", or however you want to word it. it's man-made, obviously, so really what it really seems to be is just a way for whoever created it to control his faithful neighbors... hence, it's sinful. ironic, huh? I also hate it when religious people say "God hates gay people" when really He hates their homosexuality, not the actual people, you know? cause homosexuality is supposedly a sin, but humans are born into sin, and God hates peoples' sins and loves them, so He really DOES love everyone. All races, sexes, sexualities, and beliefs.. so basically when you say "homosexuality is a sin", it's a duh, cause pretty much everything's a sin, you know? that's why there was that Jesus guy.

I also hate it when people shove their beliefs in other people's faces.. even when it's my own i think it's stupid... it's like, come on, man.. grow up...

I'm happy to see a rational person among the comments. Personally, I'm not of faith, and don't agree with organized religion, but just believe in morality. It seems like early religions were trying to be just a moral system, with stories to explain them, but then cultural norms of the time became bonded to the stories, resulting in misinterpretations later.   
  
Also, pic somewhat related.

It's things like this that make me wish religion didn't exist. Sure, once upon a time religion was needed, but not anymore. If we'd stop this ridiculous argument over parts of the bible that was written in a time where sexism, racism and homophobia was the norm, and realize that it doesn't apply to today's society, the world would be a better place to live in. And if you have to believe in the bible and god because you need some purpose to your life, then only follow the basic morals and virtues. It shouldn't be taken so seriously.
#345 to #333 - viictoor (10/15/2011) [-]
I agree but religion is also partially needed now because people need something to believe in a lot of people aren't going to do things just 'cause its the right thing. and besides if people have hope then they have a reason to stay alive and do good things in their lives.

The people who can't maintain their moral when it is needed, are those we send to jail anyway. IT would not affect the society at all if we removed religion. But if we look into history, it would have changed such things as:
the black enslavement, the purge of native armericans, 9/11(9/11 was a product of the so called "religious moral"), Westbro Baptist Church, the murder of Abraham Lincoln, the war in the middle east, thousands and thousands of years of dictatorship in egypt, thousands of years of war in europe.

THE single AWESOME things that has EVER been related to religion, was the VIKINGS!(norse mythology)

I guess I overlooked that. I was brought up with no religious influences whatsoever, I've never felt that I should be a good person because god wants me to, it's more of a "Oh, since I'm alive I should be kind and generous, so that people will like me as a person and I won't spend the time I do have hated and alone". It's a shame that there aren't more people with a similar outlook on life.

religious arguments are great... me and a friend in school used to have a few (me religious, him not) and it was a great way for both of us to learn basically. Intelligent conversation never hurts, no matter what the situation. The sad part really is, that most atheists know the bible better than those who actually believe it. A blind faith is a pointless and stupid faith. it's just ironic how those who know it don't believe it, and those who believe it don't know it.

I know that every single word in the book of Mormon, pearl of great price, doctrine&covenants, and the holy bible is true, and I know the prophet Joseph Smith was true. I know this because I have felt the hand of god lift upon my soul when I read these words. I know because I have faith in the words and faith in gods only begotten. I understand, and accept your opinions and I am hoping you will understand and accept mine. I love my lord and all my brothers and sisters, yes even you. I say these things in the name of the son Jesus Christ, amen.

That's all old testament law. Jesus said when he came that old testament law was abolished and he wrote the new law. "homosexuality is a sin." was a new testament law. No hate though. Just providing the facts. I have many gay friends so no hate. (:

I would also like to add where in the New Testament do you see "homosexuality is a sin." It would be so kind of you to provide that passage for us.

Actually, Jesus said that not a single word of the old testament should be changed, he just added to it.

Actually, the state of being homosexual itself is not a sin, because it is stated that only homosexual intercourse is. However, the Bible is a book to be interpreted. Many of the laws of Leviticus became morally obsolete with the coming of Jesus. Seriously, thought, Im not preaching, Im teaching, so please do not start an argument.

The woman was using the old testament to defend the bible, as such like thousands of people do. Leviticus is known for is contradictory nature in comparison with modern views. It gets most of its popularity for being a center of the LGBT debates. Though I can tell you this, Leviticus is one of many book in the bible that are very contradictory and just down right stupid.

People will stop using the old testament to denounce christianity when christian stop picking and choosing verses from it to support their arguments. It's that simple,if you (general term) condemn gays and quote leviticus, you should expect to have other old testament quotes hurled back at you.

just because one person eloquently opinionated about a certain theory or concept, doesn't mean it's a fact and you base your own point of view on his point of view. so you have no original opinion about this. a religion is formed of a group of moral values values that are absolutes that cannot change and you are supposed to follow regardless of whether you think they are write or wrong (otherways it would defy the whole point of the idea of religion). atheism is the complete opposite of that. you don't have to blindly follow anyone's moral code just because "they are better than yours", and you decide what's right or wrong according to your own moral fiber that you developed according to your own experiences. atheism doesn't follow any doctrine, any kind of dogma, doesn't have a rule book (bible), and you won't go to special places for not following it. no one is gonna kill you over it (except christians and muslims) and you don't have to rely on outside magical influences for you to get rich or pass an exam. now stop being retarded and use your IQ for once
