    I find that religion is a boundary. If we overcome religion we see the world with new eyes. You no longer hate gays, killing is no longer in the name of God, Atheists aren't the spawn of your hate. Christianity is one of the worst things to be burdoned with. I'd prefer to have every other religion, than be Christian. Sure, you can still believe in God, but you don't have worship him, and pray. You can just believe, right? But no. Christianity takes everything overboard. Atheists worship Satan, not believing becomes the equivalent of murder... I'm sure if you take a Christian who shoves their beliefs down an atheists throat- I'm sure if they were the atheist, they'd tell the Christian that they're religion didn't matter more than the dirt on his shoes. As I said, if you give up your religion, everything becomes clearer, life becomes more simple- you don't have to live up to Gods expectations "because if not you'll go to hell." Automatically, you don't have to be "forgiven" every time you get angry, because anger is a "sin". What if happiness was a sin, and you had to pray and ask forgiveness every time you laughed? Seems a bit rediculous huh? Which is why I choose not to be labeled with a religion. Everyone hates stereotypes, and that's what religion is. One big stereotype with branches of stereotypes.

    I agree with both of you.

    My religion has only one "sin": don't hurt any living thing except in self defense or for food (which is really self defense). We don't really believe in sin -- we think that what goes around comes around and if you hurt someone, you hurt yourself. We have no list of beliefs you have to subscribe to. Basically, do what you want so long as you don't hurt anybody.

    You're a Buddhist, I'm guessing?

    But if there are exceptions to a rule, no matter how vague those acceptions are, doesnt that make the rule an objective morality? Even in buddhist philosophy, there are still gaps in the system. Minute gaps I'll admit, but still gaps.

    Reminds me of the thing I said about murder earlier...although if it isn't in cold blood, I don't consider it murder.

    I never heard anger is a sin. It is fine to be angry, as long as it doesn't get out of hand.

    Wrath is one of the deadly sins. I'd say wrath is equivalent to anger. Honestly, I've never really agreed with classifying such things as sinful and immoral, because they are seven things that make us human.

    I've also never heard of anger as a sin
