Let's not blame others for their thoughts on religion, I mean if we truly understood their point of view, and I do, we'd be more understanding toward a fellow brother or sister of humanKind.
In many respects they're right in their assessments of religion and its hypocritical adherents.
God needn't religion, so neither do we. If we are to be Godlike, even humanlike, we will certainly be forgiving of all that find it a hard issue. If we are not forgiving, even in our virtual comments or replies, we'll have little room to speak of God or forgiveness and will simply join a growing horde of thoughtless sheep.
God blesses all, bar none...
Love & Peace
