These are a problem with people and governments, not a problem with religion. If a government that is christian orders the execution of nonbeleivers, can we blame it on christianity? Governments kill people for many reasons. If an Iranian government executes Kurds, can we logically say that Iranians are the root of all evil? If someone dies from a heart attack after eating McDonalds every day 3 times a day, can we logically say that Cheeseburgers are fatal? A religion is a belief. And beliefs aren't evil, only people can be.

Perversions of religion happen because of personal agendas and mindless individuals that follow them. The crusades, split churches and witchhunting all apply.

>Christianity is small group of close followers who have incredible faith
>they are called "Christ-like" because they are able to be noticed by how they love people
>This small group does so much good that big important people take notice and decide it's pretty awesome
>small jerk underlings decide to join in on the title without really understanding what it means
>they use the title of Christian for protection while being total jerks
>eventually leaders come up who don't understand Christianity but use the title for protection
>eventually it's just a circle jerk of retards who claim they are Christians doing whatever they want
>it's not like some religions where it says "go out and kill non believers"
>in Christianity we are taught to love everyone unconditionally and do not judge others
>people look back and associate the will of idiots as the core of religion
>That's like saying the guy who made this is an ignorant jerk who is atheist, so therefor i can assume all atheists are megaminded jerks who stroke themselves off to the fact they are right and everyone else is wrong

To whom it may concern;

Islam is a religion of peace, so is Christianity, and so are all the other major religions. The few who use it for their own gain and warp peoples minds to turn them against their true beliefs are wrong. These few have caused the disasters we attribute to religions, the masses of these beliefs are not bad people, they are taught the way to act and most follow it.


TL;DR People are judged too harshly by what they believe as peoples views have been warped by the decisions of the few, do not judge someone by the belief, judge them by their actions.


Signed. A through and through Atheist.

For everyone who thinks Islam is a religion of peace I recommend "Islam - What the West Needs to Know"

Christianity is a religion of peace, Christendom however isn't.

Religion is supposed to be peaceful.
most religious texts basically say "cut that violent **** out bitch."
It is NOT religion's fault that PEOPLE did awful things in the name of it.
It's like someone murdering somebody else in your name.

The Bible: Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

The Koran / Qur'an: Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don't kill them.) 2:191-2

Ignorance is not an excuse for stupidity.

If you claim to have the truth that will lead to everlasting happiness and then give out various conflicting, confusing, unclear orders, then tell your followers to interpret it for themselves and then vanished without a trace for a few thousand years after insisting that they indoctrinate their kids from a young age to follow your every command unquestioningly...

It's pretty reasonable to expect some of them to murder in your name

But, if religion didn't exist, there would be nothing to misinterpret.

How is religion useful for answering questions? The only answer it can provide is "LULZ BCUZ GOD".

Hiding your intolerance of peoples believes (even if admitably SOME people that follow that belief are equally intolerant) by posting your views behind the thin guise of mock intelligence on the internet doesn't make you superior to the people you insult

It's not religion I mind. It's when people decide that they can oppress other people because they have different beliefs. I mind when people are killed in the name of religion, I mind when homosexuals are kept from leading normal lives because of religion, I mind when women are raped and made property by religion. Because in that case, people are using the word 'religion' in place of intolerance, bitterness, darkness, and insecurity.

My best friend is Christian, and she is the most wonderful, beautiful, kind, caring, giving, accepting person I've met in my life. I know another Christian, and she is the most close-minded, intolerant, ignorant, and callous person I've met.

The only 'evil' is the maliciousness that causes someone to harm others, be it conscious or sub-conscious. Evil doesn't come from the 'devil', it comes from people

tfw i tell them islam actually means submission.
User avatar #71 to #51 - luiselvergas (05/18/2013) [-]
yes, but they are talking about submission to Allah not just submission in general

i'd say the comparison grows stronger.

This doesn't mean Islam (as a religion) is bad, just means that it can be very dangerous
User avatar #220 to #104 - cheesymondo (05/18/2013) [-]
yes it's representation is bad, it's holy book is bad, their Prophet is bad.
