Unfortunately, even though there are 11,000 religions out there, people tend to judge all of them by the major ones, especially Christianity.
Jake: Dude, I follow Taosim. We haven't started crusades or witch hunts, we haven't killed gays and we don't believe in Hell. As for the God, Jesus and evolution thing, that's really ignorant because you've used religion as a blanket term for "Christianity". What have I done to deserve all this hate? Because honestly I'm getting sick of it and so are all the other non-Christian religious people out there. Check your facts before making up bullshit stories before judging us all by the abrahamic religions. In fact, check your facts on the abrahamic religions too because a lot of stuff you've said about them is bullshit aswell.
Kyle: Yeah well, dipshits like me tend to speak before they think.
Up until about two hundred years ago religion was needed in order to keep high birth rates and control the masses; however today, religion is used as a tool to make war, confuse and psychologically damage people and promote hatred towards diversity
