My mother had been in a certain religion for some 50 plus years. her church was not great for her when she had a stroke or for the 10 months afterwards during her final days. For that the elders of her church faced my anger who duly hung their heads and apolgised.
My point earlier was simple, viz., that in a christian country christians should be allowed to express their faith without having to compromise on it to accommodate changing modern attitudes.
religion does not make for better people....it usually creates hypocricy, holier than thou attitudes, insincerity and judgements. Kindness, for example, is not a natural part or result of religion. Going to church is more ritualistic than anything....a reflection of their "goodness" ....for example, the pope and his popemobile and finery....what is that about? If there is a god what on earth would he make of it?
the best people in my life are not church going
without any religion this world would be a better and safer place
