To Shoot Blasphemy In The Head
I’ve always been resisting being part of a religion. If people ask me questions related to the subject, I simply nod my head and tell them I don’t belong to any. And all this while I was under the impression that it was suiting my needs, and such an answer would be relevant to avoiding further nonsense.
Till today. Today, my French professor said something that really made me think. He said, “Just because you say that you are not part of a religion, does not really absolve the problem around you.”
You know, in a way, that’s right. Unless one tries to become superior in a way that the world understands the need for no religion, a revolution could take place. But then again, that’s another form of dictatorship, isn’t it? Be it bad, or good.
So I’m not part of a religion. Only because of the violence that it creates, and its incomprehensible values and morals that people mistook according to their own whims. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t respect those who are, right? Because others might be following principles that are in contradiction to my own, but who am I to establish myself as a higher property of the planet?
Like I said, nothing’s wrong. There are things that are right, and others that are just not as right. But you can make them right.
And the question still stands: How do we wish to create uniformity in our thinking? Because that I know for sure, is never going to happen. But will you be happy for me if I do something unconventional? Because I know, I will be ready to accept your decisions with arms wide open.
