Name yours!

For me it's the presumptuous binding of morals with superstitions.

@Chumly,
Religion's existence, from the cave man to us today, is responsible for more conflicts and deaths caused by the fight for power than anything else I can think of. Greed is a close second, but religions are the worst.

I read once that humans are a territorial animal, meaning, we fight over territory. We evolved to have a boundless imagination. And we created, in that imagination, religion. That gave us an infinite territory over which to fight. Combined with actual land to fight over, we have an endless source of war.

My biggest dislike is that they all think they are right.

@Chumly,
The built in bigotry and violence against the outsider/deemed enemy/sinner of the religion.

Power over lives.



Adding that I am not entirely against religion, in case that isn't clear.

My biggest dislike of religion is the tithing, that really eats into my beer/whisky money not to mention my reefer fund.

That they must save lives to god, while their own lives goes down the sewer. Religion equals morals has never been proven; most of us see the opposite to be true.

@Chumly,
I wonder who was the schizophrenic/delusional jackass who thumbed down every single post in this thread? Clearly they didn't respond to this thread.

In response, I thumbed up the ones I didn't already given the thumbs up! Take that you anonymous religion loving weasel! Mad

@Chumly,
The need to inflict their version of "religion" on others.

@tsarstepan,
I sometimes do that, but sometimes I let zeroes just lie there nekkid, as it tells more about the zeroer.

Not that I've never thumbed down, but I try hard to never do that re opinion (she says righteously, but it's true, I try).

Poorly done stained glass windows combined with new carpet smell. What were they thinking?

But that brings to my mind the stuff I like best about it... the good stuff.

The relief sculptures around Chartres, Mozart's Requiem, the Tao Te Ching, and the best: Rumi.

@Arjuna,
After I got over my agitated dismissal years, crying in anger when I went into Guadalupe in Mexico city, for example, I got back to liking churches, or some churches. I'm picky, of course. Even in my dismissive days, I probably still liked gregorian chant.
I'm still tough on some saints, especially recently promoted ones, not to exclude the backlog.
