How Can Religions Change And Not Make A Mockery Of Themselves?

    With a 'controversial' pope visiting the UK there is a lot in the media about Catholicism, and in particular Catholics who think the pope is wrong and want the religion to change - to allow women priests, gays etc.

    These people are really annoying me. Religion is a fixed set of beliefs that are supposed to be the eternal truth. If you don't agree with those fixed beliefs, you shouldn't be part of that religion. Why can't these people just accept the Catholicism is wrong and leave it, instead of trying to make up their own religion and just pretend that its catholicism?

    Its the same with all religions. Of course most muslims don't think they should kill infidels - but that doesn't change the fact that it says to do so in the Koran, so if they don't agree with that why can't they just admit that they don't agree with it and stop being muslims?

    As someone who doesn't really like religion it really frustrates me that all these people who see the bad things about religion, and agree that they are bad, still insist on supporting those religions.

    Gay catholics, like the congregation I saw on TV the other day, are only supporting their own oppression by insisting on calling themselves catholics. Catholicism cannot change, because if it did change it wouldn't be catholicism. It would be a new made up religion trying to claim legitimacy by associating itself with the catholic tradition.

      To answer the OP question, they can't. To the rest of it, there's a reason the number of muslims in the world are gaining on christians. More and more say they're non religious, than will say they're christians, die to all the hypocrisy the churches have been using. Most muslim countries keep the people muslim, whether they want to or not. There used to be a lot that changed to spiritual humanists in the middle east, and they're allowed to operate fairly well. There's no diety or prophet involved to contridict. Orthodox is still true to the religion as it was when started. What the Taliban is. 7th century law, as mohammed said. Orthodox. Look at the problems that causes. christians don't care for orthodox chistianity. It followed Talban law to a point, until the 8th century. So they now follow the bible commisioned by a flaming queen named king james. Remember I said hypocritical? Just like busting hookers. The bible flat out says to use them!

      I'm not taking time to repeat what my hub says- faith and defense of the Church

    Religions have already made a mockery out of themselves. Anything they do in the future just adds to it. lol

    How Can Religions Change ..?

    With the advent of Second Coming 1835-1908, the religions stand  revived; only if they understand and realize. There is no compulsion however.
