So sick of everyone blaming religion for their problems

Time to rant! I live in a society where freedom of religion is allowed and I constantly hear people complaining because the majority of people believe in God so than the minority feel they are being suppressed. You have more freedom now than you ever had but while you sit around complaining about how much freedom you don't have your real freedom is being taken away by a government that does want to control religion and put labels on people and its your fear that has let it happened and empowered them. I don't need you to educate me on the "theory of evolution" I know it probably better than you do from genomes and DNA to Lucy and I chose an educated decision. I am not delusional because I believe what every physicist in the world also believes that there is more to our world than we can see, touch taste or feel. If you held them to the same standards that you held the religious community than you would be making fun of them also but you don't. While you insist there is no God you complain about how the world is so messed up and what kind of God there is that would allow this to happen. But yet you sit back and don't take any of the blame yourself and allow things to crumble and point fingers at others who do try to do something more than just worry about material objects that don't last and end up putting you into an economic bondage. Why do bad things happen? Because good men (or women) do nothing to stop it. If you don't like the way things are stop whining and do something about it. Write your congressman, senators or form a political active group to vote but don't sit on your butt blaming everyone else because they are doing what you wont do by exercising their rights.

Excellent post Evan. I do not want to say too much at this point because I would really like to see how some are going to answer. There is much blame placed on religion. However, you have brought an excellent point here that the blame is just a smokescreen for inactivity. This reminds me that someone posted a couple of scathing discussions about the lack of love by some. I responded to those, but I think I might try to find them , if I can, and ask the original author what have they done to better their society! Eh?

God help those who help themselves- people never try to have the bravery of taking himself out of the problem instead he blames God for it which is not at all the right thing to do. As God will help only if you have the power to help yourself but instead of helping yourself you blame God and do nothing else, then the problem rises and does not get solved.

hi evan ... religion is the base of all problems .. god is not human is to be blamed for creating all this mess as their tendency to compete on "god" of which religion is better has increased over the years if there is a "GOD" which created the universe it could be only one .. chers

I think it's a smokescreen for what I call the blame game.. It doesn't matter what group one blames as being more responsible for earth's woes, the blame game is still old fashioned bigotry!

Well, they have their freedom. There are people who praise religiion saying that religion is responsible for all the good and moral and ethics in the world, and some others blame the religion. But the fact is religion is responsible for neither good nor bad. Man is responsible. If there is no God, then we cannot blame an imaginary creature. Each of us is partly responsible for what is happening around us. We need to heal ourselves first. Then only we can heal others. As you rightly pointed out, it is inactivity or maybe too much of activity that is responsible for what is happening around us.
