Where do you stand with religion?
That pretty much sums it up!!! But honestly, I’m not a very religious person at all. Now, it’s not that I don’t believe in a higher power, but I don’t feel the need to define myself by a book of rules or pray to anyone to know the difference between right or wrong. For me, If you do right, good things happen; if you do wrong, bad things happen. I find religion to be as a scapegoat for some people. If something good happens, it’s a miracle, if something bad, happens blame the “Devil”. Not everything needs a reason, sometimes shit just happens. Why can’t people just say I fucked up, when they fuck up?
Most of my experiences with religion have been with people who are hypocritical, also very judgmental because you don’t believe or do what they believe and TRY and make you feel guilty. Now granted I could probably just claim a religion and follow it to a T just to show it can be done, but my question is WHY??? WHY do I need to define myself or associate myself with a religion? Why can’t I just live my life as I see fit without people trying to justify my successes/failures? I personally believe everyone has a right to believe (or not believe) in what they want and without judgment from others about it. I personally don’t care what your views are or what your believe, It plays no role in whether I like you or respect you.
