It"s not often I-A-B has a post showing religion in a positive light--so here"s an attempt at some balance.

If you choose not to believe or practice any religion, that`s your choice and so be it. No hatin` here! But, as a Christian it just saddens me that so many that choose not to believe really don`t understand what it means to practice faith in Jesus. The comments here do not represent the vast majority of people of faith.

If you want something.......you can attain that thing thru meditation. The power of positive thinking. Our connect to a dynamic universe. Then using the gifts that you receive. That`s the key.

@squriz4sale: people may claim it is `faith` that sees them through crisis, but it`s really just their own level of inner strength, which they mistake for the power of god etc...Otherwise, how do atheists make it through crisis?

Faith is just another word for

"why he kill your husband?" He wanted to test her faith - looool

Can you imagine if you are a pious christian and then god decides he wants to test your family`s faith by making die slowly of cancer? That is f*cked up.

I donate lots and lots (many months of wages per year) to poor christians in need. They come begging to me, get their money and then go away and praise the lord for softening the heart of the evil atheist who will surely burn in hell.

You would have to be retarded and/or brainwashed not to see through religion.

HolyGod,
You`re certainly correct. Those things can be done, and have been, by people without religion. The lesson here, as I`m sure you know from having read your posts in the past, is that people can be good (or bad) regardless of whether they are "believers". This was a lovely story. That`s all that really needs to be said of it.

@Squrlz4Sale: What sustained her was a sowing machine and her own hard work. If she wants to attribute that to an invisible man in the sky, that`s her own misguided interpretation. Doesn`t mean the rest of us should come away with the same illogical realization.

@ Emmmettyville: I understand where you`re coming from, certainly. But I`ve got to say, what I see primarily in this video is a widow with two children who was sustained by religion when she might not have made it otherwise. I have nothing against Buddhism whatsoever; it just happens in this case that what sustained her was Christianity.

what a bunch of ass. If god loved you so damn much, why he kill your husband? And why does he make all men in asia such total douchelords that only care for their own kids and not yours? and why do you need to give 10% of your precious income back to the church (just so they can yearly update their BM f ucking W while you eat rice with maggots in it?) and you think jesus really wanted people to go around pushing his ideas on other cultures who actually probably have a much nicer religion anyway (buddism) Man, all this christain rubbish never stands up to much scrutany.

That`s what sucks about being irreligious, it`s so hard to find secular charities. Her thing sounds more like a case of networking than pure missionary randomness. Though I am glad she`s happy.

I was almost afraid to see how this would be received. But I`m happy to find that you`ve all been quite civil, which is wonderful to see. =^.^=

Heartwarming story of good people helping out others in need. I`m not really sure why god and jesus are tacked on at the end though.. anybody?

What`s so inspiring about a Christian missionary group trying to convert poor Hindus with free gifts?

Right children- before we start...
If peoples religious beliefs cause no harm to anyone else then I can see no reason to condemn them. Many moderate religious people do nothing but good in this world- and, yes, they would be good people if they were not religious I know. But can we just leave kind and decent people alone- they have done nothing to deserve the ribbing.

A nice story like that will probably ignite a religious war here on I-A-B.

The sewing machine was a gift from God?

Cool.

She must be really chuffed that he followed up the gift of taking her husband away from her with such a nice present.

"Well no one said christians can`t do good things, they do many good things"

Sure. But all of those things could have been done by people WITHOUT religion. You can feed the homeless and volunteer at hospitals without the imaginary sky friend and threat of eternal hell fire. I do it all the time.

Well no one said christians can`t do good things, they do many good things in fact. I just don`t let some acts of kindness overshadow the horrible things organized religion has done and continues to do.
