Why I speak out against religion
Personally, I couldn’t care less if you’ve been brainwashed into worshiping a pet rock you believe talks to you. I’ll smile and nod and get on with my life. There are fundamentalist Christians who refuse to accept any fact that contradicts the bible. Fine. There are deists and very liberal Christians who admit the bible probably isn’t literally true but find comfort in their beliefs. Fine. There are atheists who stubbornly believe there is no chance of there being a god. Also fine. I walk around convinced I’m the most beautiful woman on the planet and disregard all evidence to the contrary. My beef isn’t with beliefs. We all have our own life to live and must live it how we best see fit. The problem arises when you make decisions which affect the rest of the world based on what you’re convinced your pet rock tells you that you are compelled to do, in spite of what is rationally in the best interest of others. The problem is exacerbated when this is the mindset of a very sizable portion of the people with whom I have to share a planet. At that point I unapologetically attack the belief in talking pet rocks.
