christianity doesn't have to be oppressive brent. not all christians think everyone who doesn't believe as they do is damned. some of us believe god is love and love in all it's forms is godly. also if one is good to others and an honest person they have a place in heaven. one of my favorite things to say to those fascist christians is- if god gave us free will, then why can't we give it to eachother. it usually gets me a blank stare. 😊

Rant Alert!

Christianity is not oppressive! People who call themselves Christians, that misrepresent the ideology of the Christian faith, that subject these misconceptions on others for the own purposes, they are oppressive. Sadly, many of these people don't even realize what they are doing because it was taught that way to them ("The Inquisition, what a show").

As with any ideology, it's usually a good idea until human nature is put into the mix. Communism is a wondrous idea, to help out your fellow man and have no fear of greed because we all share in what we have equally. That is until it is put into practice. Then we are all equal, but some of us are more equal and deserve more.

I know that you probably meant the person's personal ideology is oppressive Brent, but that is not at all how it came across. What you said seemed a bit oppressive to me. But I'm sure it's not.

Brent, its all good. Sometimes we just have to vent when something hits us personally. I'm sorry that you had to run into people whod don't understand. The issue that I see is that too many of us just become whatever religion we are because our family is without question. Some break tradition to be hip, cool or just to rebel. Others (like myself) have been allowed to question what was presented and see if it was right. Now at least a decade and a half and a billion still unanswered questions later I found myself where I am now, back where I had started. Partially because it is familiar, partially because it does feel right to me.

If I had more time I'd go into some of my views, but I don't want to start any religious debates here. Seen them happen before, they're not pretty.

Too many obsessions, not enough time. 😉 I stopped commenting for a while but didn't stop reading. Glad to see the Asylum is still OK now that the inmates are running it. 😊
