There has been more bloodshed in the name of God than for any other cause. And it is all because people never attempt to reach the fountain-head. They are content only to comply with the customs of their forefathers, and want others to do the same.

Tolerance is NOT acceptance. And that’s the problem with ALL religion. It teaches acceptance only for those who believe exactly as you do, and at best, tolerance for the rest of us “sinners.” Sorry. Not acceptable.
When I remove the layers that say I can’t, I discover a burning ember that says I should, I can, and I will.
I had a love affair with life, and as is the custom, I will lose, but will regain a greater love with my heavenly Father.
You live in a society, that always demands you to have a label to define yourself. Now it’s up to you, whether you choose man-made labels like ‘religious’ and ‘atheist’, or your innate natural label gifted by Mother Nature, i.e. ‘human’.
Real religion begins where the tiny cocoons of belief systems end.
