People need to keep their beliefs to themselves instead of shoving it other people's throats, simple as that. This whole issue is because people can't accept that they don't hold the universal truth.

As a kid, other kids would find out I wasn't religious and say that I would go to Hell for it. There was no animosity from them that I can recall; I think of the discussion with my best friend at the age of six... he was worried, I think. It wasn't a cruel 'you will go to Hell', it was 'but you might go to Hell!' He's an atheist now... which is more than I can say.

Not being religious wasn't a conscious decision. I wasn't raised with it. It never made any sense to me when it was discussed, even when I wanted it to. But... even though I thought the concept was silly, the idea that I could be punished for something I couldn't control terrified me.

Still... Fear is a powerful thing, yes. But I've also seen beauty in religion. I've stood among a hall full of Christians as they sung camp songs together and we moved among each other, praying for each others' well-being, and I had never felt such love for the people around me before. And I had never felt like such a thief in my life, being allowed that experience when none of them even knew I might not believe in God(/s)... but I believe in religion. It's got power. I don't know enough to judge good or bad. That depends on the people involved, I think.

If God is gonna send me to hell, to be tortured, just because I'm an Atheist, than God must be a very heartless and cruel person.

My boyfriend is a Christian. I'm an Atheist. I don't think we will be able to live "happily ever after" because of that.

I'm a Christian and all, but I'm never like that towards anyone who does not believe.

I'm a Christian and I pray for people.
I never tell them I pray for them because I know they will react like this.
But it's only because I care about them.
