Now, I do believe in God, but I fully understand the flaws of religion. Religion is really based on a person's opinions and personal beliefs, so it is impossible for there to be one uniform religion, this much is certain. Also, pertaining to the bad things that Christians have done, it was bound to happen. It was a much less civil time (if this time can be called civil be any stretch of the imagination) and people were easily moved by anything that would be able to solve their problems. The Crusades was much like the Holocaust in that Christians blamed Muslims for their poor harvests and sicknesses, labeling it as the 'Wrath of God'. This in comparison to Nazis blaming Jews for the source of their financial and government problems. No, I'm not calling Christians Nazis, although I'm sure many were. As far as the Witch trails... those were more gear toward very uptight, uber-christens. Puritans trying to weasel their way out of trouble by blaming hated neighbors and land-rivals, at least, thats how it started in Salem. Afterall, no matter the level of faith or whatnot, it only takes one person to start a mob.
very good point people and yes hello its me, like LN i am an athiest and though i believe in what the bible was created to do i dont believe people should take it more then that, okay lets see adam and eve if any die hard christian was to tell what this story ment they would say the start of man kind, now any smart person would say that it is a moral story and the moral dont get tempted by evil deeds now i know many of us dont listen to that (and no i am not on of those people that do evil deeds) it is still a moral lesson
now as for christianity itself look what it has done the rules make poeple go to extreme lengths to follow there religion and be happy to like priest (here is a topic i love getting into =D) now priest in the catholic church arent permitted to have physical and relational type connetion to woman so since many dont want to go after gay men they turn to little boys wtf people that has to stop
so yeah i got my stab at this religion and i may or may not be back if people are being stupid
and to see you off a quote from me that i had many years ago "Religion was created to see evil people turn good but with one person even books such as harry potter can be turned into a center of worship" thank u and good bye
