As I sit here I’m listening to Howard Stern memory lane and there doing Robins news. This shows from 2004 when Bush just started campaigning for a second term and it’s crazy to me that these Republicans use religion to get votes. I don’t believe in Christianity, or any organized religion for that matter, but I like to believe that people like to make there own opinion based on looking at both sides of the argument and deciding which is best in your perspective. Its not like that at all.
My uncle and his family are those people. They are very religious and what ever the Bible says is law. I like it but it annoys me. Pros: asking inappropriate questions and seeing what would Jesus do, feeling smart and having a good laugh when yu hear there opinion on things. Cons: they think very highly of themselves because they go to church, very pig headed and wont budge or even compromise when something goes against the Bible.
I’m someone who believes that this planet would be so much more advanced if religion wasn’t around. It does cause 90% of all the wars in the world, which I do attribute desert storm to because if yu asked George Bush he’ll probably say Jesus said he should do it.
And that’s where its just wrong. The leader of any country should be able to rely on the head on his shoulders, not on some book full of stories from thousands of years ago. A book about a man that has no involvement with the book. I just can’t believe it. I feel dumb every time I try to reason with myself about maybe there is a God and a heaven.
I honestly believe after we die our souls roam the earth. Energy doesn’t disappear it transfers. Its sad to believe that my soul will probably travel the world but its still more believable than some guy in the sky that grants wishes.
I understand the use for it. People struggling with a problem in life like to believe that there’s someone on there side. I like to believe every once in a while, just like around Christmas time I like to believe there’s an over weight man breaking into houses and exchanging cookies for presents, kind of like a cookie fiend giving out hand jobs for a hit of a snicker doodle. Its just fun to entertain the thought. In closing Id like to leave with a quote, “Religion is regarded by the common as true, the wise as false, and the leaders as useful”.
