wahehe...i love one quote from the movie, "Flight of the Phoenix" in which one of the characters hadn't had a religion said "Religion divides people." which struck me...ever since i was 7...? i think..we already didn't have a religion ...and i think that quote was true...without religion people will unite as one & have the same faith..right?

but even if we don't have religion we still believe in the faith of god..lol..^^ just like skygod333, the author of this thread said...^^but just my opinion...no offense!! PEACE!!!^^

religion is definitely not controlling..it's the people with power in religious groups that make it seem too controlling..

If you want and example of religion being controlling then take a look at this link. http://www.religionnewsblog.com/17543/jose-luis-de-jesus-miranda-4
Here's the wiki.

When people start to give up their lives just because a MAN told them. Then it's their problem.

If you believe in God and you have a religion , you shouldn't feel controlled by it . It's up to you! The things I restrain myself with are those I know are not good before God's eyes...And yes I wanna make him happy , by not doing things I'm not suppose to & obeying him~

Shouldn't be controlling for those who have God in their hearts!

Well for me it does not, because I don't believe in religions, gods, heaven or hell, ghosts or anything that is supernatural or does not make sense/can't be proven true, but still I like watching supernatural movies/animes and scary movies. But I always know that it is just made up shit from people that thinks that they have seen/heard/felt something unnatural or innhuman but society has never been able to prove once that things like ghosts or gods exsist, but they have proven that miracles can happen but that is something else and in my opion I just think that it is luck. Some may think that I will end up in "hell" for saying these things but I am just speaking my mind and my mind is tired as it is 3:00 am here (Show me god and I will believe in god )

I agree besides you should balance yourself with religion if it's controlling you too much. End of story, close this topic please.

It depends on what religion you're part of. Some are very strict while others are loose (not loose in a bad way)

religion is only a guide on how you live.. it doesn,t control.. you can do otherwise but there will be consequence.. it is like in mathematics that we are given formulas for us to solve a problem but we can choose not use those formulas.. but can we arrive to the correct answer..

Get out of the matrix. Then you'll be able to see clearer and choose whether to walk a straighter path or return to that which you grew up with.
