    Does hearing of some wrongs done by preachers sway you from religion?

    There are many more religions than one, and only a few have preachers. Most just have spiritual leaders who do nothing more than offer advice, not the same thing in most cases (though I do know one church that their preachers are just that). Do you know of anything beyond your one religion?

    Translation: You have never bothered to study anything else, so have no grounds for comparison or criticism of any other beliefs.

    Sorry, but without actually experiencing life, you can't live.

    Listening to the narcissistic rants of Charlie Bass is enough to cause anyone to become an atheist.

    He's so rude and so extreme I suspect he isn't even a Christian, but a Lib trying to act like one and gets a thrill out of a charade similar to Blame Bush.

    Hearing the behaviors done at current times and throughout history based on religious interpretation of holy books steers me away from religion.

    I am a man of strong faith in a higher power and karma who has no religion.
