We approve of all religions and we disapprove of all religions.
It's a big tent.

3. I personally don't approve of religion at all
But I'm only one person, and many many people with different opinions and life experiences post in GD - you can't paint the forum with a wide brush like that.

7. I can't recall any threads trashing Pastafarianism
Perhaps everyone's afraid of being touched by the noodley appendage.

9. I love spiritual people...
But religious people scare the hell out of me.

I don't think it's religion that bothers people here, it's the religious idiots who want to foist their beliefs and religious laws upon everyone else. That is one hell of a slippery slope and it should be avoided at all costs.

18. People have a right to believe what they want to believe...
There are no thought police... yet. I don't care if people want to worship rocks and water, as long as they don't try to get those who don't share their beliefs to adhere to their "laws".

To bash someone for their beliefs when they are minding their own business stinks.

23. Yes thats the way I see it too
So many of the laws we have to live by are based in religion.

14. Hmmm ... I can't recall any threads bashing Buddhism.
Jainism? Bahai? Actually, it seems to me that, outside Judeo-Christian faiths, GD's pretty noncommittal. (Apart from atheists that disapprove of ALL religion, of course.)

15. I don't think it's religion in general, but
the people who give over their free will and thought process to religions.

I am no expert, but I believe that Buddhism is a religion that many people find acceptable because it encourages self discovery and introspection.

UU is also widely practiced by DUers (I was raised UU, but don't attend any more).

17. Discordianism!
"If organized religion is the opium of the masses, then disorganized religion is the marijuana of the lunatic fringe."
Kerry Thornley, The introduction to the Principia Discordia 5th Ed.

"There are no rules anywhere.
The Goddess Prevails."
Malaclypse the Younger, Principia Discordia, Page 00032


'To diverse gods

Do mortals bow;

Holy Cow, and

Wholly Chao.'

19. Pessimism.
I think the universal value of GD is that things are bad, and they can only get worse.

21. If such an approval power existed, what DU'er in their left mind would care?
Among this herd of cats it is just too ridiculous to contemplate DUers paying any attention to it.

26. Atheism?
Not really a religion, but those who say there's no deity certainly have a zealous attitude on par with many who are religious.

Can the lack of a religion in of itself be a religion?

31. GD neither approves nor disapproves of anything.
GD has no opinion. There are lots of opinions within GD.

36. Locking.
GD is a diverse community of individual members. And DU takes no stand on anyone's religious views or lack of the same. We do, however, request you respect other members' points-of-view here.

When discussing race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, or other highly-sensitive personal issues, please exercise the appropriate level of sensitivity toward others and take extra care to clearly express your point of view.


Please don't start a thread that is obviously likely to be inflammatory.

Thanks for your consideration.
