Yesterday’s post was born out of frustration. I make no apologies for making the post, except that I wish to clarify one thing (thanks [Tiara] for knocking sense into my head).
Religion, on its own, as a theory, is wonderful. It is beautiful. That I do not deny. Neither do I deny the fact that for many people, religion is what gives their life meaning and the strength to get through their day.
What I am angry about is the people who use religion as a means to propagate their small-minded and bigotry. That I’m told I need to bend over backwards to accommodate these hooligans, who would otherwise rampage through my state saying that the minority voices should STFU because they (the bigots) are the bigger bullies on the playground and their God said so.
Also, in case you’re wondering, no I’m not an atheist. I still believe there’s a greater force in this world that we can’t quite comprehend. Simply put, I’m a unicorn agnostic.
PS: Ti, I still advocate taking away their scapegoat. The question is, if we don’t take away their scapegoat, how in the world do we get these people to see reason? Or at the very least, tell them to respect us as how we’ve respected them all this time?
PPS: My issue is with people. Not with Religion the beautiful theory.
