All this religion stuff... bah

 

I'm roman cathlolic and supposed to believe in God but quite frankly, I also know that a lot of things in the Bible is just pure and outright bullsh*t. There are a few things I like to believe and there are a few things that I don't quite follow.

 

BUT, boys and girls,

 

I don't give damn about it. Am I supposed to create my own religion, join this religion, join that religion?

 

I can live perfectly without it and my heart won't stop when I don't believe in everything... or live with a religion of which I truly believe everything that it suggests.

 

And now I wonder why millions of people get killed because of religion, wars are started and about every terrorist act is justified by it (as in *INSERT GOD HERE* said it, therefore we do it)

 

Is it just it really that easy or am I just being naive?

atheism is a religion too dozingoff.gif and athiests have killed millions of ppl. for not believing like they do... Joseph Stalin anyone?

I just don't see how Scientology affects anyone unless of course you are a member of it.  So stop being drama whores/queens and let the members who have a right to bitch, bitch about it.

 

It'd be like me bitching about being French.  ph34r.gif

So you're saying we should all only debate, ponder, discuss (etc.) the things that directly apply to us and/or effect us in our daily lives? So only people with cancer should try to come up with a cure for it? you shouldn't think about whether or not a knife weilding baboon could kill you untill it's got you pinned down to the floor? If what your saying was plausable this forum(as long as everyones individual life) would be incredibly boring. You basically indirectly just told everyone to never take it upon themselves to learn anything and/or form an opinion about it. And let's be honest, how many scientologists do you think post on this board? Even if the answer was 20, the topic would then be "let's talk about how great scientology is" and not a place for debate and discussion. tounge.gif

My points were that there isn't anything to bitch about, and if it wasn't for Mr. Cruise bringing it to the spot light most of the knobs here wouldn't have a clue what it was about. Ever wonder why it's been around for 50 years and no one ever knew about it til now? There are thousands of sect religious wankers out there with crazier practices then Scientology, but no one talks about them.

 

It's rather pathetic to complain and belittle something that very few people understand, which is what this topic basically amounted to. And putting a bitchfest rant like this on the ranks of cancer is lame. I'd be hard pressed to find someone who HASN'T been affected by cancer in one way or another.

Amen to that! Uhh...right.

 

I also prefer to think that religions were made up. Our maker is the Universe itself, nobody else.

And putting a bitchfest rant like this on the ranks of cancer is lame. I'd be hard pressed to find someone who HASN'T been affected by cancer in one way or another.

I wasn't attempting to compare it to cancer, I was just making a conceptual example, I could have plugged any disease in there and it would have had the same effect, cancer just came to mind first. I'm not saying scientology is as big of a problem as cancer. And I understand where you're coming from, I really do, but i just don't see the point in coming in here and saying it. If you don't like the subject matter being discussed then don't post in here. There's no reason to come in and tell everyone to quit debating it. And from what I've read (given there are a rather large amount of bitchy posters in here confused.gif ) there are a few of us who actually like to discuss the subject in a fairly reasonable manner. Once again, I agree with you that coming in here and talking about Tom Cruise is a pretty pathetic thing to do, but I think those of us who are here to discuss things other than the "crazy factor" of scientology but rather looking at it in light of other religeous movements and practices have the right to do so without being told that we're "drama queens/whores".

I'm obviously using the pupular definition of "religious cult". Referencing their recruiting methods, their legal attacks against pretty much anyone who says anything bad about them, and the fact that you have to pay to be considered a member.

 

The way that organization operates is different than any "mainstream" religion.

Is Scientology any more crazy than Christianity, Judaism, Islam, or Hinduism? They're all extremely improbable. It's funny when Christians and the like bash on Scientology, because every religion is just as full of sh*t as another.

All religions and cults ask you to believe outlandish stories. And when I was younger and forced to go to church, I remember a collection plate going around. They all want your money.

Mr. Someguy

Here's a pretty good account of a young writer who produced a book on scientology, and nearly lost everything (Until FBI raids on a CoS revealed scientologies plans).

 

http://www.paulettecooper.com/scandal.htm

 

 

Some bonus facts:

 

1. You must pay to "rank up" in scientology.

2. The CoS will manipulate the government to supress anyone who publicly speaks out against them.

3. A scientologist was recently murdered by is mentally insane son, because scientologist don't believe in psychiatry.

4. Scientology once attempted to take over the town of Clearwater, Florida. This was called "Project Normany", it was foiled by the FBI.

Again, it all depends on what your definition of "religious cult" is. Most people would consider it a religion with questionable recruiting and business practices. You don't have to pay to be a Christian, even though donations to your local church are encouraged.

 

Though, if you think of any group which believes in a god as a cult, then there's no convincing you otherwise. I'm just referring to the commonly accepted and widely used definition of the word.

How about an insta-ban for any sh*tface that posts images or video of DEAD PEOPLE for f*cks sake? It's not like it's somewhere deep within the video, it's right there in the god damn preview image of it.

 

At that point, she wasn't dead. And I've seen images just as bad on CNN, if not worse. You are viewing at your own discretion. Swallow it and shut the f*ck up smile.gif

Perhaps I over-reacted a tad. tounge.gif

 

Anyway...Scientology is bad, mmkay. If you do it...you're bad. Mmkay?

Christianity is actually slightly bearable, but some people were brought up with it and have it hard-wired in their heads. I will not waste a second on a Scientologist, it's just f*cking stupidity.

Stefan.

Scientology is, in my mind, a bunch of crap. I don't care whether I am prejudiced or not, it simply is. I have no respect for how farfetched their ways of forcing their beliefs upon people are, and I have no respect for their members. I may be biased, considering I am a Christian, but I wouldn't even consider it a religion, more like a cult of people who believe in something, and force it upon everyone's throats. I find that offensive and wrong. confused.gif

Think about if your parents brought you up in scientology. You would probly think it was normal, or you'd be f*cked in the head. Just think of little Suri Cruise-Holmes. She'll definitly have an interesting life.

 

Stefan: The Christians ran a little campaign a while ago called The Crusades. They actully went out and killed many people who didn't join thier religion. I'm sure all those tribesmen felt pretty offended right before they died. I admit it was a long time ago, but it still happened. All religions want to "enlighten" others on thier beliefs.
