day 4 - your views on religion.

To be honest I don't really know what to write here, but I'm going to give it a go. For as long as I can remeber, I've never agreed with the idea of organised religion. It just strikes me as being a bit hollow and false. Few people seem to give it any thought and they just do what they're told and repeat what they're told to say like sheep. Which is why when faced with a situation where the stuff they're taught might be applicable - like discussing people in other countries - they totally forget everything and become racist or whatever. Loving thy neighbour only applies if they're like you it seems.

So it's why I rejected the religion being pushed upon me by my parents and choose my own path. Or rather I decided I was going to choose my own path, but then took many years to actually work out what that meant. And to be honest I still don't know what that means, but I know that I'm at least thinking about stuff rather than copying what everyone else says.
