Yep, I said it. I'm going to make a statement. It's not aimed at anyone in particular, but I going to say it.
Not everyone subscribes to a religion. People have different beliefs, faiths, and their own sense of spirituality.
I believe, let me say that again, I BELIEVE that when religion breeds a type of piety, it erodes it's true intention. Down south, they call this "bible-thumping".
I don't wear my personal Christianity on my sleeve. Some believers may say that I need to or that I am supposed to. That is their opinion. I say whatever your belief system or personal spirituality
is, it should be reflected through your actions. One need not beat with a hammer when you could be heard with the gentle rustle of a feather.
Piety breeds contempt. Condescension fosters malice.
Just my thoughts.
