Here are a few quotes for all your searching and observations. I went through a similar thing. I was a born again Christian for almost 17 years before I gradually broke free of those bonds of "brainwashing":

* Most men would kill the truth if truth would kill their religion.(Lemuel K. Washburn)

* Do what I say or burn in hell, is not free will. It's coercion, not freedom.(Duane Alan Hahn)

* People do more from custom than from reason.(Unknown)

* Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.(H. G. Wells)

* Christianity makes you an "offer you can't refuse" by promising Heaven if you accept their propaganda and threatening spiritual torment if you don't.(Duane Alan Hahn)

* Most people don't like to think. This is why human religions are so popular. It almost doesn't matter what the belief system is, as long as it's firm, consistent, clear in its expectation of the follower, and rigid. Given those characteristics, you can find people who believe in almost anything. It's God's way, they say. God's word. And there are those who will accept that. Gladly. Because, you see, it eliminates the need to think.[God "Conversations with God (Book 1)" through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)]

* The road to God is whatever road you're on.(Duane Alan Hahn)

* Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, "yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up must come down, down. down. Amen!" If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.(Dan Barker)

* You don't want to know the Truth, you want to know the truth as you understand it. This is the greatest barrier to your enlightenment. You think you already know the truth! You think you already understand how it is. So you agree with everything you see or hear or read that falls into the paradigm of your understanding, and reject everything which does not.[God "Conversations with God (Book 1)" through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)]

* This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religions in it.(John Adams)

* All religions have been made by men.(Napoleon Bonaparte)

* Heresy is only another word for freedom of thought.(Graham Greene)

* To judge from the notions expounded by theologians, one must conclude that God created most men simply with a view to crowding hell.(Marquis De Sade)

* The difference between a saint and a hypocrite is that one lies for his religion, the other by it.(Minna Antrim)

I have one Honest Question,Okay? Here Goes,If you know that Religion is such a Bunch of Bunk,Then why do you go to such great length to try to Convince others on how you believe? I mean after all,That does kind of make you Guilty of doing the same thing that you accuse others of doing,PS.And on the term Heresy is not another word for Freedom,It just a Polite term for Bull Crap.
Because I am educating the uneducated about religion.

I do not come on here and literally say what I believe in, in a sermon, or doomsday event. I mostly say what I do NOT believe in.

That's your divine right.

Where was your god before the shootings happened? Healing some kids bad case of pimples in another county at a Full Gospel church?
