    Complete utter BS. Religion is a choice.
    If you were born to parents that were atheist, then anything you do inside of any church/temple/etc is a choice.
    Also, people switch religions all of the time. That is a choice.

    utter BS!

    If you honestly belief religion is a choice, why don't you try choosing to believe in Christianity, and let me know how it works out for you.

    it's really simple. Subject yourself to the christian teachings, accept it, and wammo!


    Let me ask you this. When you are born, what religion are you (no you in general, but people of the world).

    I hardly ever see people complain about offending one political philosophical points, but i always see people get their feelings hurt when someone says things like "fairytales" or "the buybull."
    After all, people choose their political philosophy and their religion (or should i say brainwashed).

    thats what im getting at.

    Why is there a difference?
    Thanks for the explanation. Now let's deal with the words--what you originally said, which is what I responded to, and what you have now qualified with "many."

    You're just talking a lot of nonsense. It is the "accept it" part that is not a choice. Don't believe me? Just try choosing to accept it.

    We're just gonna have to disagree on this then. We'll just keep going in circles.
    simply stated: religion is a choice just like many other things in life.

    Now that's a choice, unless you are physically dependent on alcohol.
