I am getting somewhat aggravated with the use of this site as a conduit through which proselytizing flows. I am by no means anti-religion. If you worship something, that is fine, but leave me out of it. Most frustrating among the recent questions and answers on Fluther regarding religion is the skew towards Christianity. Christianity is not the only religion, and shame on those who claim it to be the “true” religion.
Some of you are throwing your arms up in the air because the atheists (myself included) are being so exclusionary and short-sighted. To that I say look in the mirror – just because you grew up in a culture or an arena of learning that taught that your particular faith is the one and only does not make it so.
There are so many other faiths in this world. Are you saying that the Billions of people on Earth who did not have the prescience to be born into a Christian community are doomed because they do not worship the right deity? Are geneticists around the world now fated to spend eternity in Hades because the Pope just decreed genetic engineering a sin today (he did)?
Your thoughts? As per usual, let the logorrhea flow freely….
