Non- Religious Vs. Religious
Do you believe their is a correlation in the actions and behavior in non-religious and religious persons exhibiting hatred, prejudice, discrimination,and forcing their opinions and beliefs on one another?
No. I don't think anyone actually forces belief on anybody. It is individual perception of it being the case. Just because someone talks to you about religion does not mean that he or she is trying to convert you.
There is no compulsion in religion. Everyone who follows any religion should do so through their own free will and not through force.
To much discussion on this subject it's best to just ignore religion XD
I think they are one in the same. Even though you don't have a religion, you still have morals that you live by and maybe a lifelong plan to live by.
LOL now have you ever experienced a non religious person forcing their opinions or beliefs on anyone?!?!? You question should give you the answer that you seek! Non religious people usually just mind their business and usually just live their lives.
Yes. I do feel we are all the same whether we are religious or not. Some take time to understand what religion is all about before believing. While others who do not believe have their own beliefs.
There is nothing wrong whether you are religious or not as we are still the same.
I believe in God, believe in Jesus, and love them both. I also study scripture and read the bible. Yet, here's what may through people off... I AM NOT RELIGIOUS! I know, most people think what I believe is religious but it is SPIRITUALITY. I am living my life spiritually, by means of having faith in what I can't see and trusting that its there. Now I'll be honest, I do not think homosexuality is okay, I don't think people should have sex outside of marriage, and I am 110% against the pornography industry, YET, I do not judge people for it. I accept people as they are as God does. If they choose to sin, they sin against themselves, no me and not God. Why would I judge someone simply because I didn't like what they did? I would never have had any friends or any relationships If I did. I also do not like drugs or alcohol, yet everyone I know does one or both yet I still do not look down on them, because ITS THEIR CHOICE! I wish people would stop judging each other because they simply don't like what they do. I will never force my beliefs on anyone because I wouldn't want them doing it to me! Who are we, in our mistakes to cast stones at one another? NO ONE IS PERFECT!
Part of dogmatic religion is selling the product. Without believers or "faith consumers" the product of religion would simply be discontinued like yesterdays out of style fashion trend.
Being non-religious is like NOT being a slave to fashion. Because you don't believe in sustaining any trend, you have nothing to sell to yourself (reaffirming) or to others.
Well, all the anti-homosexual and anti-abortion rhetoric and vehemence certainly isn't coming from the non-religious.
If one is hateful, prejudiced, discriminatory, and trying to force their beliefs it doesn't matter whether they are able to quote scripture. Spiritual people avoid acting poorly, non spiritual people might not.
i think that this is a choice we all have the choice to behave and act a certain way i dont think relgouis peopple are any better than thoose who arnt religous i beleave we are forced to make choices in life some we make the right one other times we dont its just the way the world works right and wrong is in the eyes of the beholder we know when we have done wrong we can feel it

Why Do Religious People Get So Angry At Atheists?When it comes to Atheism, most religious people get angry and even combative when it comes to this subject. I wonder why, especially in this day and age, one would feel anger towards another human being with a different perception/outlook/belief....

Do you consider yourself spiritual or religious, and what do you see as the difference?
by Grace Marguerite Williams 4 years ago
So many people insist that Atheism is detrimental to society while religion enhanced society. Hmmm, now let us see this objectively instead of subjectively. Religions have been the source of wars and other types of divisions among humankind. Religions have also been the source of...
