Something cowards try and avoid because it often seems too much of a burden.

Religion is the systematic approach to participation in the "anti-fall".
It's our means of curing a world laced with death.

Man up and stop complaining about past evils committed under the umbrella of religion. I'm sick of cheap excuses to abandon it. Good religion is the only thing that can unwind the misery of bad religion.

And drop the 'religion is a delusion/lie' mantra. One could flinch at the thought of such frivolous naivety. Dim, inarticulate notions of truth and reality quail before the stark actuality that religion burns with.
Religion is the lifeblood that continues to carry oxygen to this broken world. But this blood also carries a toxin called human depravity.
You don't get the venom out of a man's bloodstream by cutting out his heart; you get it out by giving him the antidote.

Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.

The reason the government rejects religion as a way of living now is because;

A. The world is based on money, and households are based on a two person income so people work all the time, barely pay their bills, and still maintain I high level of debt while the kids are taken away by the school system and brainwashed to think learning is to repeat what is told to them.

B. They are still forcing religion views and beliefs upon all the citizens, to try and keep everyone stupid, unable to think for themselves and unable to act on their own.

Conclusion: Everyone has a right to their own beliefs, and most laws are just the beliefs of others being forced onto you from birth so you are never aware and still blindly follow. It's time to ask yourself and everyone else "Why?".

Send this definition to all of your friends, FUCK RELIGION, WE ARE THE PEOPLE, WE WANT A FREEDOM OF NO RELIGION. We want a society based on intelligent thought, not blind ignorance.
My grampa is still forcing his religion,views and beliefs upon me!

The most popular type of organization on the face of the planet. And a force of extreme orientation. Motivator of history and mover of the masses. All religions are based on very similar doctirines (usually founding morals that are fun to argue about) and a theory of why we are here and who created us. Unfourtunately religion is such a strong force of orientation and deals in so many ultimates (gods unquestioned will, good and evil,life after death) that it can cause people to become unquestioning of their own beliefs. Which can be very destructive (see Ellie Weisels Preface in "Night" for a profound acount of what happens when people dont ask questions). Religion, although capable of many wonderfull things with its sense of community and task, can become very destructive when it becomes simply "about itself". Especially when people become polarized by religous/ social/ political trends. Religion can be a great thing if wielded with an inteligent and questioning outlook, and not one that only seeks comfort. Those who critisize religion should ask themselves if their own objections to religion (although justified) haven't become just as militant as the beliefs they oppose.

Also, Jehovas witnesses are way to excited about an apocalypse.
Religion.......see also a good reason to have a fund raiser, kill someone, mutilate the genitals, be compassionate.

a belief in something spiritual that cannot be proved
Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism are very popular religions.

1)Devotion to and observance of ANY metaphysical belief system

2)serious commitment to something besides metaphysics -- NOTE: religion does not include just Christianity, yet so many people take the subject too personally and too many above posts seem to refer directly (and usually vehemently) to Christianity...makes you think about so-called "free thinkers" who think they're so smart yet seem to be unable to provide correct and objective definitions of "religion".
Confused individuals use religion for suppression and bigotry.

he doesn't believe in God; science is his religion.

Jesus loves you...admit it.

Zen: What is the sound of shit happening?
Islam: If shit happens, it is the Will of Allah.

Atheism: There is no shit.
Agnosticism: I don't know whether shit happens.

Catholicism: If shit happens, I deserved it.
Judaism: Why does this shit always happen to us?
Religion is people's best-quality opium.
