THe worst was when my 18 year old friend and coworker killed himself and his parents were religious but he was far from it, but the whole time the priest was talking about how hes probably going to hell for committing suicide and not being a believer and we should learn from his mistakes. it took major restraint not to stand up and call the priest and my friends family out in front of everyone. It is disgusting what is accepted because of religion.

Reading this one I really had to sign in.. I had a similar run in at my fathers funeral earlier this year... OMG I seriously wanted to burn the church (which my grandfather literally built the lower level of) to the ground... I was so pissed off at the constant everyone needs to come and donate atitude of the preacher that I nearly lost my cool. I haven't followed religion in many years because of this type of thought pattern. OK. I feel a bit better now that I have that off my chest.

That's how it works. One of the first things that set me on the path to becoming a non-believer was in CCD when I was told if I miss church services or misbehave during church then I`d be going to hell. That`s when I started questioning the motives of the catholic church and all other religions.
