    Why don't articles like this get Fox Newsesque headlines?

    "Religion kills 4 year old boy" sounds better. The content of the article is horrible, they should all be ashamed for murdering an innocent.

    Dude, it's not religion in general. It's crazy people who use religion to justify their craziness. If it wasn't in the name of religion, it would be in the name of some other ideology.

    It's just a suggestion @OP could you edit the title so we don't have to read it over and over? Something like Religious leader... I don't want to relive it again and again in my head. Poor little angel RIP.

    It's almost an admission that the kid was born gay. How refreshing.

    In stead of wondering about what makes people gay, I think it'd be more interesting to spend resources on realizing (cos we kinda know the answer) what makes people like this guy so looney bin crazy, and then doing something to prevent it.

    on a side note, am I the only one who thinks that article was a mess and hard to make any sense from???

    here's a little more coherent version

    To clarify: Religion [that preaches against ANY group of people] should be outlawed.

    I'll never forget growing up in a church that tried to teach me that black/dark skin is a curse from god...behind closed doors, of course, because there were TWO black families who attended services there, and the church leaders didn't want to turn down their Sunday offerings "offend" them.

    When religion teaches that certain things aren't acceptable to "god", this is the tragic shit that happens. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Did anyone notice the titile of the article on the page? "CULT LEADER..." This is not a true religious branch of anything. These are the type of people that split under a charismatic leader and fall off the deep end. Jim Jones and the Jonestown suicides/murders is the best example of this type of stuff.
    THIS DOES NOT DENOTE A RELIGION...IT IS A CULT.
    Please do not attack religions over a radical group like this.

    And I agree, that man should be tortured painfully before he is killed. Murdering an innocent is completely evil!

    I have said this for years. Religion is the most dangerous weapon ever created by man.

    It insists that all of the members of the "flock/clergy/whatever" accept one spiritual leader and his interpretation of an antiquated text of moral codes. It requires the followers to actually believe fairy tales as actual events and then people get all shocked when something like this happens.

    For me, it is more like waiting on the inevitable. Things like this are bound to happen, because they have happened since religion began. As sure as the sun will rise, religion must have an enemy to fight or it won't exist. If they can't make weak minded people believe there is a wolf at the door that is not only there to eat you, but to eat your soul and the souls of your loved ones as well, then who will show us week after week to feed the coffers. For most people, it is all fine and good until they paint you and yours as the wolf.

    This is my opinion.
    Most people are not strong enough to stand on their own two feet and they need religion as a moral guide. Now if these Bible thumping fanatics were to actually practice everything to the letter, there would be chaos. The Bible teaches love your enemy. And to love like Christ Loved. Meaning no hatred or malice toward anyone. Accept them where they are at and help them grow if you can, otherwise to be there if they want your help, but don't get bogged down with them.
    There is nothing wrong with this. But I have seen bad apples that have soured the whole thing. A few loud mouths make all of what most religions strive for look bad.
    I am sure none of you are opposed to live and let live. Or loving equally.
    Religion is evolving. There are entire denominations that have homosexual clergy. Several (and the number grows daily) churches sanction gay marriages.
    I don't aim to change anyones oppinion, but not all religious people are evil and out to get you.

    There are a great many good people who are religious. Religion is the problem, not the followers. They are generally willing to do anything or act any way they are commanded to do. Yes, a few bad apples throughout history have spoiled the pie, but the point remains that the pie is spoiled. Religion is not evolving, it is dying and rightfully so, IMO.

    People are becoming smarter and the are seeing religion for what it is. They are leaving the places of worship, so it is forcing the religious leaders to "accept" some that they would never have accepted before to keep the coffers filled.

    Silly Abe,
    Your on the Real Jock Forum. Home of the "Enlightened Progressive Fags" (not a religion or cute) that demand acceptance from everyone, yet also demand that everyone think, act, and speak like them or they do not deserve to exist. Learn from them then your life will be perfect because you will be better than everyone else.

    That actually sounds like a description of Religion to me...lol.

    As for what I have said, take what you will from it. I am one of those "fags" who has been damaged by religion, so take what I say with however many grains of salt you would require. I was taught that "fags are evil" and that "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" and that dark skin was a curse from GOD. This wasn't just one church, but several over several years. I am fortunate that my parents didn't force me to go. It was my choice and my spiritual journey. I just worry about those who aren't strong willed enough or old enough or wise enough to say NO...enough is enough.

    Are you saying she was only a good person because of her religion? I'm betting she would still be a good, helpful person without all the ritual.

    I believe he said that religion should be outlawed...not religious. There is actually a significant difference.

    That's true, but organized religions generate and encourage this sort of thing. Not to say all religious people are this nuts, but the incentive is there.

    Anyway, at 4 years old how are they so sure he's gay?

    We understand homosexuals that condemn all religion because of there own
    "experiences" yet the redneck that was beaten by black kids in elementary school, because he was the only white kid is condemned as a bigot?
