Just ask to be absolved of your sins, before you die. Apparently that’s why we all rejoiced the death of Rush Limbaugh, because we’re all jealous that he’s in Heaven and we’re not.
Seriously, is he’s up there…I’d rather be in Hell …
This is what bugs me about that kind of sentiment. If someone like Rush Limbaugh has a “free pass” to Heaven, why wouldn’t just as horrible people be there too? Why would anyone want to go to Heaven, when people like him are there? No punishment, nothing, just come on in!
At the best I thought maybe someone like him would be doing purgatory.
I’m not Religious, but it makes me feel depressed that someone like him gets to go, no punishment. He just gets to head on up there and share the space with the people he has harmed over his entire life. Just makes me feel so angry and “what’s the point”? If you can be a horrible person, be some of the worst scum on the earth, and then just go to Heaven. What’s the point of Heaven? Why should we be good people here, when all you need to say, at the end of your life is “absolve me” and that’s it.
I will start by saying Religion, I don’t mind it. I just don’t like when those who use it to discriminate and spread hate.
One of my friends on Facebook, has someone “woe is me” because Biden is a Catholic, that is pro-choice. Somehow that means, America is going to be worst off with a pro-choice POTUS. Because America is doing so well with a “pro-life” POTUS.
COVID Deaths are at 365K+.
4 people died in the Capital Hill “take over”…Wait…5 now.
Trump told the people who just walked into Capital Hill “We Love You”.
Now I know that Trump Supporters aren’t the best thinkers in the world. One of the questions she asked me if it’s supposed to be Religion and State separated, why does abortion always come up at election time. Well, because you keep bringing it up?
Then when she brought up the “Thou shalt not kill”. I asked one) if she wants to follow the commandments, why support Trump? lol. But also two) God kills a lot of people in the Bible, including babies.
This is where Religions like Christianity and Catholicism loses me, there are a lot of inconsistencies.
Not with all people, but just those who are like must follow Jesus, Trump Supporters. Except they don’t follow the teachings.
This is the extent of my photo-shopping skill,lol
…That’s it. Somehow my mum and I missed the live audience that Leah Remini and Mike Rinder did for Scientologist that had escaped and had been apart of their series somehow. In fact I am pretty sure it was the last episode of their last series (with hopefully more to come). So we finally got to watch it. Good god, how is Scientology getting away with so much? I don’t know which is worst, paedophile priests or just Scientologist in general. Some of the stories were horrific!
I feel like people are starting to scrutinise churches a lot more these days, with all those paedophiles in the Church. Yet, Scientology seems to be getting a free pass…with everything.
With a week to go till Christmas this is such a powerful thread and such a powerful messages. Read it first before you make a judgement about it. This message is so powerful! Also, no, they haven’t been locked up for safety reasons,lol
I saw a very interesting thought today and I was wondering what you all thought. I’m just going to say that I am not religious, but I am spiritual. While I have no problem with Religion as it stands alone. I do and will always have problems with extremists of any nature, or anyone who uses their Religion to hurt or discriminate. I don’t believe that’s what any religion is supposed to be “used” for.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here. But I’m pretty sure God was a Republican (that whole Old Testament thing). But Jesus was definitely a Democrat (that whole New Testament thing).
If you have been doing what these people have been doing and you STILL have “God”, Peace or Love in your various “Bios” Please delete your accounts now!
“The man who received death threats for taking his wive’s surname”
You are NOT a follower of God or anything that is supposed to be peace and love. Now I am not a religious person, I’m more of a spiritual person. I do not believe for one moment that God’s thing is to send death threats and threaten infertility on a couple because a man wants to take his wives last name.
The biggest problem I have with some religious people (not all) is that they interpret and use the wording of the various Bible’s to their own meanings. I wish I could find the tweet. Using “All I have to do is ask God for Forgiveness when they die” For the “okay” on their horrible behaviour…I found this brilliant Tweet about how Jesus talked about Churches and used rocks as an example to make strong foundations from. Some people took this literally and built Churches…But what if that’s not what it means? From a more spiritual point of view this person explained (and I am going to keep looking for it!) Jesus was coming from a more “spiritual” point of view. The rock is a strong foundation, it’s very hard if not impossible to move stone, especially when you have a group of it together. He wasn’t talking about building Churches, he was talking a spiritual foundation. The heart of what a religion should be, the foundation from your hearts. Not a literal building…and have to agree with her!
Many people who are this nasty, tend to go to Churches on Sunday, to “cleanse” them of their Sins. How about not going to a building to cleanse themselves, how about they just be a nice person instead?
Usually I don’t post on the weekends unless something really amazing happens to me, or is going to happen to me. Now I am not even a religious person, but I am what is called an “Agnostic”. Which means I believe there is something out there, may not be “God” or “Gods/Goddesses”, but something else as well. Now this day is not a Public Holiday so all the shops will be open today and this day is always held on the third Sunday in the month of January.
Many organizations celebrate the day by holding interfaith events where faith leaders get together to give talks and lectures. People are encouraged to talk to and listen to people from faiths different than their own and to understand the basic tenets of other religions.
Religion is SUCH hot topic these days. I just think we should “observe” this day. We have millions of people who have some kind of Faith and I don’t know about everyone else, but I am tired of everyone trying to make everyone else trying to be the “true religion”. Humans Beings are inherently different, the chance of you being exactly like someone else, even with identical twins, is very highly unlikely.
The third Sunday in January is annually celebrated as World Religion Day. It was established by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States in 1950 as a way to encourage interfaith understanding.
I believe that Religion while it definitely does damage, especially when it’s in the wrong hands. Can do just as much good, and this is what I am fighting for, I have seen it. I don’t think that it’s going to ever happen in my lifetime, but I believe it will eventually happen.
Blame the alcohol, blame the tired mind from a long week. I really do love my multicultural life.
I have gay people, religious people, jock people, nerdy people and they are all truly wonderful in their own little ways. However, I do feel extremely uncomfortable whenever I have to read someone saying that we should get rid of “that whole group”. Doesn’t really matter which way it goes, it really doesn’t. Whenever you say “all” of a group, to me, you become lesser than that WHOLE group.
Sure, get rid of the extremist in any group, they are typically always dangerous and really feed the hatred and fear.
But anyone who can say this man should be “gotten rid of” has something seriously wrong with them!
