The unique problem with religion

Quote:

The unique problem with religion going bad, as opposed even to bad politics, is the idea that God has directed whatever is done or said. This makes it difficult for people to challenge.

Yes

And then another unique problem about aspects of religion, is that religion shouldn’t need to be seen as something so unique, that religion would then be sheltered and therefore allowed to escape criticism .

In the past, this has been allowed to become a widespread problem

Not anymore.Times have changed.Religion is now just as much fair game for criticism, as what any other subject of discussion also is ?

Why shouldn’t it be ?

But some theist don’t seem to like to need to be dealing with this.Perhaps because they feel offended by it ?. Well lots of people may feel offended, when faced with criticism.Brethren groups react negatively this way.And likewise many Catholic folk have also reacted negatively toward criticism as well too, like when they were being faced with widespread criticism in regard to child abuses that their church leaders had refused to address.

Aspects of religion are not something so unique that they should be allowed to escape criticism

This is what believers need to deal with (themselves). Get over it !

Its year 2017

To counter attack this situation. Educated theists well versed in use of sophistry.Chose to rather try and turn criticism around, so as to be able to make atheist (involved in criticism of religion) look bad for even daring to criticize theist sacred cows

So cunning educated theist well versed in use of the fine art of sophistry, promptly invented the idea of militant atheist (an attempt to throw atheist into the ring of people of unsavory character)

Seems that this is how far, some sly cunning theist are willing to lower themselves to, so as to continue to still shelter their sacred cows from criticism ? (they don’t seem to care about any amount of harm doing-this might then help to cause.)

The sacred cow matters most above all

So why would we even bother to wonder why so many faith abuses are still able to remain widespread in year 2017 ?

If interested people take interest to study comments of some forum member on wikipeebia carefully.I suggest you’ll soon be able to pick-out certain members who might seem angry about criticism, they feel, is being aimed entirely at themselves.They most specially hate to need to deal with criticism that is laced with a sense of comedy

And yet if a atheist were to only allow themselves to revert to use anger.These theist would then feel able to feel smugly happy about that situation themselves then too. Because in their mind, this is then helping to prove their faith-belief (IE: atheists are bad people.Not just normal human’s reacting in ways how normal humans might usually be expected to do,when feeling anger that faith abuses are not being addressed)

This is another angle when theist sophistry is in-play

Rather than sitting down and taking a few deep breaths of air (like women giving birth), and getting into some serious self-reflection. Caring to address the situation by asking themselves, in more real honest depth, questions ,in regard to why it might be, that they might even have any need to need to be feeling stupid ?

Instead their only reaction is to still continue to try their very hardest, to still continue to find some way, any way possible, to re-confirm (unto themselves) and see the atheist as only being those wicked people who’s intent on continually acting badly

Seems so little wonder widespread faith abuses would continue, even still in this year 2017

 

I even now have somebody, who even rings my cell phone, regularly.One time this person even went as far enough as to actually speak a few words (in a wee squeaky church-mouse voice) to me,just to be sure to let me know, how he knew the connection between myself in this blog.

Shame on this person

I wont ever bow down to any kind of religious tyranny

I don’t even mind if i’d need to die in refusing to do so. (Im wondering and often im having a good chuckle.What kind of nutter would be stupid enough to want to waste their own money on pointless phone calls?)

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.
