Coercion Is A Cause For Humility And Shame

Quote : ” The Most Rev Justin Welby also said that to take away a person’s freedom to believe or not to believe is “to violate the core of their humanity“.

Archbishop Welby, writing in The Times, said: “We must never compel or manipulate people into faith.”

He added: “This is why the church’s sporadic record of compelling obedience to its teachings through violence and coercion is a cause for humility and shame” (my bold and underline)

Britain has most obviously been one Christian Country,among some others,all of whom within the framework of the “traditional” form of what Christianity has generally allowed itself to become.A form of most blatant religious tyranny.A most cancerous place, where even the most abusive cults have also been freely able to have found themselves good-shelter to continue to survive as well too. And even for thousands of years.All existing together, under the false foundation,that they had obviously agreed to have built-on.

For indeed,our right to all have freedom of religion,hasn’t ever been something that has been honestly upheld

And they all ought to be so totally ashamed of themselves.These pious church-going folk.All they of whom, over century past, have continually claimed to be they who upheld?, high moral ground

Oh that,so much great shame may be continually heaped-up-upon them.That they may one day begin to wake-up to the amount of horrid nastiness they had all helped cause. And oh that their children may even still continue to flee, from within the four walls, of all their idol church-buildings

 

For this is the sorry sad state of their Christian-legacy

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
