the man was invited to go to church by a friend this morning and actually went (much to my shock and awe! ) as a favor to that friend... it actually started an interesting conversation upon his return... on the topic of why neither of us is particularly religious and our thoughts on going to church
He thought that the "happy friendly people" were all quite fun to be around and insists that he just hasn't found a religion because nothing has made enough sense to him so far- he accused me of being overly cynical about religion and religious people for my attitudes
I'm the evil bastard of the situation for insisting that if there is a god, I think that he's a total asshole and that so much evil shit has happened in the name of religion that it's done more harm than good in the world Of course I'm the one who was suspicious that the "happy friendly people" were all just an act as well...
I thought that such differing opinions coming from two self proclaimed agnostics were rather amusing and I know that there's plenty of other reasons as well... what's yours?
