Totally awesome answer. Religion is stuck, mired, cemented into its conservative dogma. Yes, once upon a time, this fulfilled a useful function. But it is swiftly becoming obsolete as better ways are emerging with which to deal with spirituality.
Most religionists believe that the "law of god" supersedes the law of the people or secular law. Unfortunately, not everyone can agree on which religion is the right one to follow or which god is in control. This is divisive and confusing.
That I understand, Austin. But viewing all religionists in the same light as the fundamentalists isn't helpful. For some people it's personal, it dictates the way in which they live, but they don't force it on others - these r the 1's I have no issue
If most religionists were moderates, none of this would even be an issue. I'm all for moderating everyone's views radicalism is just stupid.
