A set of beliefs (usually to do with something supernatural) that serve as explanations such as; what made the world, what happens after death and how the world will end.

Unfortunately, even though there are 11,000 religions out there, people tend to judge all of them by the major ones, especially Christianity.
Kyle: Religion is a load of bullshit for the weak minded. All it does is cause homophobia and war and tell people they're going to hell if they don't do what they say. It's a money making scam. Jesus wasn't real and neither is God. Evolution proves it is wrong.
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.

The biggest lie in human history. It has been responsible for more deaths throughout human history than all other unnatural causes combined. For a thousand years the Church was a tyrannical dictatorship that used religion to control the uneducated masses. Free your minds and come into the 21st century

A sociological institution that's true purpose is to protect the family structure (by alienating homosexuals) through guilt, self-doubt and fear by spouting the dogma of a man-made God in order to increase the reproductive rate of pre-industrial or medieval civilizations, which in turn increases a species overall chance of survival.

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
Religion ruined my life and turned me against blacks, jews and gays.

A series of fanciful concepts that people believe as to:
- Help themselves get up in the morning, achive inner peace, etc.
- Keep their family happy, because all their family are in the religion.
- Feel superior to other people.
- Provide moral guidance because common sense would render them otherwise lame.
- Justify war or general hatred of other groups.
Wow, so we can, like, kill abortionists if we join the right sect of the right religion? Well fuck me, religion it is!

"He was hot, and I really wanted to hit the sheets with him. But I couldn't, because I'm, you know, religious."

A strong belief and following in a higher/supreme being. Many follow a strict code of moral conduct which can vary from religion to religion. A very sensative subject to most people. One of the main causes of war and violence. If you want to piss someone off very fast, attack their religion.
Famous examples include the Jesuites vs. the Japanese in the 14th century and modern Christians vs. everyone else.
