Things happening in the name of religion is always infuriating. The Meera Jasmine case in Sabarimala temple, and the Jayamala case in Ayyappa temple reeks of bigotry & foolishness. A non-hindu cant enter a temple. A wom,an is not allowed to touch the idol or get close because the God is a brahmachari (bachelor)????Women are not allowed in Mosques. C'mon!!!! As if God needs intimate contact with his children. God is omnipotent
God is one right? Then why the discrimination ? God can sense things light years away.
If there is so much of bullsh*t going on in the world, I fear to believe in the existence of God over whom so much rife & bloodshed occurs. Does being steadfastedly devoted to God make one a blessed person? There are criminals & terrorists out there who are very religious & sincere in their belief in God & his teachings, probably more than you & me! But they are not good people!!!! Religions say that atonement for their sins will come in due time, when they shall burn in hell. But what about them whose lives were made living hell by these so called believers??? Those they killed before their time? Tghose whose lives they destroyed? Maybe those good people (victims) have gone to heaven, but at what cost??If God takes away good people early then that God is a selfish God, cos good people are what we are sorely in need of today
Blamaing your ill-fortunes on God cos you havent prayed or been loyal or some such sh*t is foolish, cos your strengths & weaknesses are yours alone. If a God does exist, then that God is there to lend a helping hand. So stop blaming God , of all people for what goes wrong in your life. Or rather, stop blaming YOURSELF because you failed God. If there is a God, that God loves everyone unconditionally.
There must be so much more than I know about religious hypocrisy & bigotry. Blind rites. Customs n the like. But what I do know, makes my blood boil. All people today are bothered about is preserving their religion. Christianity fears Dan Brown & his book. Hinduism fears Christianity is trying to take over the reins in India. Some radical Islamist want to stamp their authority on others.
Hindu killing Muslim.
Muslim killing Christian
Christian killing another person, another religion.
The cycle is endless
In the end, it is human v/s human in the name of religion - blind, reasonless, explanationless, rationaleless religion
I WANT ONE RELIGION - one religion with no rules, no customs, no blind traditions, only love & care for one another
I WANT ONE GOD, and I dont want this God or religion to be given a name. Let all be one under it.
This might not be the solution. This might not even be a possibility. But it'll definitely make the world a better place.So I'll dream on. I do not recollect correctly, but the song by John Lennon rings in my ears now...
"Imagine there's no religion
Imagine all the people, living life in peace.
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one. "
