Howdy all! I have a deep-rooted fear of religion. I don't like it or trust it at all. I guess I feel threatened by it. When people approach me about their religious beliefs I feel uneasy, when people are richeous about their beliefs I feel aggressive. I don't uderstand how people can give up their right to free thought and base their entire life on ONE set of teachings. I see organised religion as an evil thing that brainwashes people and causes a lot of pain and suffering in the world. Anyway.......my feelings here are causing me a lot of pain and anguish. I'm not sure that I need this fear in my life. Am I alone in my feelings? Is it normal for an Atheist to fear religion? H.
