Response to Humanist_Activist (Reply #23)

24. Good thoughts there! I don't object to people getting together on Sundays

 

for whatever they choose to do on Sundays, bowling, or painting homeless shelters, or serving dinners or whatever.

I just wish we would stop with the concept that SOME Christian people are somehow better-off because they go to church on Sundays, or that the rest of the "flock" will be welcomed home as soon as their life will inevitably meet up with some personal trajedy.

We ALL have relatives dying, we all have moments of anxiety and doubt, we all love and lose those we love from this planet.

Religion is so insidious as to invade our lives at these few critical moments. I have actually seen a woman convert from Judaism to Christianity when her dog died. Is this rational thought? Of course not.
