Days of Truth – Day 19: What Do You Think of Religion? Or What Do You Think of Politics?

30 Days Of TruthI’m not even sure how to start this, I would like to touch on both subjects, but I will just get angry and go on a rant which I don’t want to do. Quickly, Politics sucks, Politicians, they are all crooks one way or another, enough said. Whatever, I’m not going any further into that.

As for religion, well what can I say? There are many of them. I was baptised Catholic, am I practicing? No. Why? Well I can’t say I don’t believe in things, because I do. When I say things I mean Heaven and Hell, it does exist, some think we are living in it, but I don’t think we are. I think Hell is much much worse than this. Heaven? I have no clue, I don’t try to imagine either any more. When I was a kid I did. I was a devoted Catholic, well mainly because of the parents, they took us to church did all that stuff. Then it slowed down, probably because my parents life got so busy with work, and trying to keep a roof over our 5 heads and food in our little mouths, that they didn’t have time for church. Or was it that? I’ll never know. I don’t really talk to my father, and my mother passed away … it will be 12 years on Sunday, god rest her soul, (I got a little religious there hey?) Well see there you go.

A lot of tragic things wouldn’t be happening if there was no religion, don’t you think? I think so. Imagine what the world would be like if there was no religion? Would it still be like it is, would people hate based on religion, well no of course not there wouldn’t be a religion silly. But there would be something replacing religion, like Color? Size? Nationality? Gender? Heck these people (and I mean every single one of us) will find something to hate for. And that is just a sorry thing to say or think, but it’s true.

Look at the world now? Look at whats happening? Economy has gone to shit, gas prices are soaring high, kids are killing kids, parents are killing kids, what the hell is happening? Maybe it’s the beginning of the apocalypse, at least that is what some religious followers say. What do I think? I think that can be the case, if something doesn’t change soon. I know I got off topic a little, but in a way I didn’t because it’s all got something to do with it.

I don’t believe in some of the things that are said in the bible and for that reason, is why I can’t really say I am a devoted Catholic, I won’t change religions, I was born one, i’ll die one. I often wonder, how people come to some conclusions, based on what is in the bible, is it even true? Was it made up from the beginning? Perhaps those that made it up (if it was made up) believed so strongly in what they made up, that it just spread like wild fire, hmm I don’t know. My sister is gay, and according to the bible she is damned, why? Because she loves someone of the same gender, heck love is love for damn sake!! I think there are a lot worse people than her in this world, that should truly burn in hell. Ever since my sister came out, and sure at first I didn’t understand, but I opened my mind to it, and I did understand. I love my sister for who she is, brave enough to be herself, and not let anyone tell her who she should love or not love.

I found this video, and thought it to be interesting, thought I would share it with the public. With that said, that’s all for me now. Have a great day!

  1. A woman after my own heart. Raised a catholic too – so the its the guilt that keeps on giving! People are entitled to their own views , and obviously free to follow their own religions, but the problems arise , that you mention above, when it doesn’t stop there. Forcing your views on other people is where we end up in the fractious world we have.
    Bold blog challenging both politics & religion in one fell swoop. Good for you Emily. Glad I found you – I think it was indirectly by way of triberr . Looking forward to more of your blogs.
