    They tend to be strong, honest and principled. they tend to be the kind of people you can lean on when you have troubles.</P>


    They tend to have much stronger relationships and tend to raise kids who are respectful as well.</P>

    Pappy, i've come to one conclusion about you. You really don't get out of ur comfort area much.

    Im not saying it doesn't exist, but i can say I know more people who aren't like that that "put god first"

    and even the commandments could relaly be summed up with the golden rule:

    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"][quote user="tonyt830"]Matt, I have been told that I need to accept God into my life more. I was raised Catholic and went to church every Sunday and holidays.


    I even went to those CCD classes a couple days after school during the week.


    But I feel everybody has their faith and that is good. But I have also noticed that some of the "supposed" holy rollers are the biggest hippocrits out there.[/quote]

    having faith in god is fine.

    I am 12 years catholic schooled too between CCD, middle school, and high school.

    But these religion gets used as a crutch. People think they are holier than thou because of their religion and they look down upon others because of it (kind of goes against every thing i was taught in 12 years). People use it as a crutch to do what they want and come back with "God is forgiving".

    If people can find the good out of religion, i take no issue with it. Buts its more common to find people using it as a shield. Religions that are suppose to be accepting of everybody, typically aren't at all. I just can't stomach it.


    [/quote]I hear you, but thats the small majority. Every bunch has is bad apples. And its certainly not just Christianity. At least Christians arent blowing themselves up to kill other Christians. Look at the middle east. Jihadists kill everyone that dont except their way of Islam. Its insane.

    the extremists are a small majority but you don't need to be an extremist to fall under the catagory of people that use Religion as a sheild.

    **** man, my old drug dealer/friend was religious as can be. A friend that sold me pot but was a real drug dealer for other **** was as religious as you could BE. Dude went on retreats with his family like once a month just ridiculous **** but was a bad mother****er. Aka, doing time for stabbing somebody now.

    Im sorry but I see more negative effects of religion than positive. And it also speaks to the fac tthat some people need to be god fearing to do the right things. I don't fear god, I still try to be as good to people as possible. I can be a **** and a ball brearker but at the end of the day i try to do good by people.

    I've come to the conclusion that if there is a god and he doesn't accept me because I didn't buy into this religion **** and he holds it against me - then I don't want to follow a god like that anyway.

    I agree with pappy on this MMB, I know a lot of religious people (all be it most Jewish) and you would have NO idea they were even Jewish, they don't push the agenda, they don't use it as a crutch, they don't think they are better people then those who are less religious...those thoughts I would imagine don't even enter their mind, they do what they do because they want to..not for some type of benefit....and if it wasn't for them eating kosher you'd probably never even know they were religious at all.
    [/quote]

    its a culmination of things.

    Whether its pushing their religion on people, playing the i'm superior card, or use it as a crutch to act in a negative way (for instance the topic of homosexuality).

    As a straight dude (jokes later) that grew up in ball breaking jersey and who CONSTANTLY uses the term *** and homo (in a non sexual way), it annoys the piss out of me when I come across people against gay marriage. People manipulate what religion is suppose to mean too much.
    [/quote]Yea and if you said those things in front of homosexuals theyd press charges. Theyre just as bad as the religous freaks.

    see THATS the **** though. Stuff like that...

    like did he really need Psalms chapter and versus on his eye black in college?

    does every question he answer have to be prefaced with a 5 minute praise to god?

    I find it annoying. But I still hope he does good because as a football player I am not convinced that a spread option can't work in the NFL.Everything comes full circle. But now that hes a Jet, I hope he blows even bigger ****
