When people use systematized faith as the basis of their argument, I just don’t get it. I really don’t. Putting forward faith in any organized religion or in any sort of God as a supporting line of reasoning puts an end to any discussion because suddenly every right and wrong becomes absolute. To question then becomes heresy and addressing a point becomes attacking the religion and a healthy discussion becomes a heated debate or an all-out battle.
Wait. Maybe I do get it.
It’s the easiest way to take to influence people and manipulate the masses, isn’t it? It only takes “Because God says so” or “Because God wants me to” to turn any agenda into a holy crusade. Dogma takes away the need for the people to think for themselves due to its authority on the ‘unquestionable truth’.
And here I thought religions exist to teach people to love God and one another better.
