You know, it's funny. You fill this post with many clearly biased pictures bashing religion of all kinds. I consider myself a christian baptist. I've started going to church with my girlfriend over the past couple years and all I've seen are humble people who do nothing but help people and pray for anyone who is in pain or sick etc. They go to Haiti for weeks at a time and help build houses and put smiles on the faces of people who have nothing. You didn't seem to mention that. We know the Bible says marriage is between a man and a woman, but that doesn't mean we go hating on homosexuals. We know God loves and forgives them. Stop looking so deeply into the psychotic side of religion and go see for yourself how good christians can really be. We only seek to keep at least a little bit of good in this world and to help lost ones step back and look at the big picture instead of spending a whole day searching "religion sucks" on google Images. I hate religion too, but I love Jesus. God bless you all, whether you like it or not.

When I was younger I went to a Baptist church with my parents, and they kicked one of the teenagers who sang in the choir out. They completely banned him from church once they found out he was gay. Also, The Salvation Army, probably the most well-known Christian fundraising organization, refuses to help gays no matter how much they need it..... That kinda seems like hatred towards homosexuals to me. This stuff isn't on the psychotic side of religion, it happens all of the time all over the world and needs to be talked about... By the way, I'm not gay.

That's pretty screwed up. The problem today is that man is starting to worship himself rather than God. I'm pretty sure if it were up to the big guy upstairs, he would want everyone from homosexuals to serial killers to come into his house.

the whole moral behind your rather largely worded post there was that you cannot take a joke? I mean, I have gone to church since I was about 5, and you know what, I laughed at this entire post..it's funny, because all of the people in it are hypocritical and extremists to the point where it is just plain funny that they exist.

I know it may be best to just laugh it off, man. But the world is starting to see all Christians as mindless idiots just cause like 10% of Christians are misled and blind and it makes it kinda hard to take lightly. Sad, really.

Actually, if you think about it, a decently large proportion of the world has had reason to detest Christianity. I mean, middle east for one, but that is a no-brainer. Also, I have heard of many Africans detesting Christians because many years ago thousands of Africans were put in the position of believe or die.

I'll say this first, I don't care if you pinkie me down... Go for it.

I was raised in a Baptist family and I can say from experience that it was far from friendly. The church I went to can be considered a cult... They told us not to talk to anyone outside of our church and to only follow this church. Funny thing is, a majority of the people there were my family members... I had religion shoved down my throat by these people and never had a chance to make my own choices. No, they have not done a single thing for other people other than trying to get others to convert to their ways... My aunt and uncle are rich yet they waste their money on themselves. Also, I have sexist, racists and homophobics in my family who all go to this Baptist church. I'm sorry to say but, I do not find these people friendly in the least and I am saying this from experience...

And I'm sorry you had to go through that crap, cause that's not Christianity at all. That's just how you described it. A cult.

I have nothing against religious people though... Just my family really. I respect other people's views and beliefs... You can believe in pink flying unicorns for all I care.

I really don't blame you. If I grew up in that crap, Idk where I'd be now. You're a better person than I, I'll say that much.

organised religion will always have problems. Many people all gathering in one place every Sunday or saterday to discuss a question that no one, ever, will have the answer to. Yea i'd get pissed after a while too.
But the post is only trying to say that people will abuse religion to enforce their will and trivial opinions on others.

Dude you know Dr. Cox is atheist right?
User avatar #1606 to #1570 - garrizard (01/18/2012) [-]
Yes, and he's also my favorite Scrubs character. Though Laverne did make him begin to see that miracles can happen right before she died in a car accident, even if he remained an atheist throughout the series, he would STILL be my favorite character. The bible says to love everyone and that's what I do. That's why this content is so misleading. I love listening to Rob Zombie (satanic), and Queen (gay) all the time. I won't judge people for what they do or believe. Not every christian is an idiot like Harold Camping or Westboro Baptist church, bro lol... But when a small group of christians make themselves look dumb, Lord knows the media blows that crap up like crazy.

No offence really. I figured i would try and say something else instead of arguing religion again. I really do wish all the christian's i met were like you. And yes while this post is long and biased, most people on the internet do love a good argument, or bad one depending. Nevertheless **** like this will continue to get pinkieed up and i have grown to accept it.
Dr. Cox is also my favorite.
