I never get religion...

Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?
in response to reader comment: Thoughts

I always think it's funny (actually I could cry) that people tell other people that they are 'Christian' (Like Donovan did) or 'Muslim' or whatever, who says you are? Who told you? Doesn't it all just depends on the place you were born, silly rabbits!...Have you ever thought about 'why you are a christian'? If you would have been born in for example Egypt you probably would be a 'muslim'...That's it!...That's the only logic behind religion!

So...Why all this 'obedience' towards this little fact...According to me it's kind of pathetic to set believing and obeying a religion or god as a goal in life because it is just 'a consequence from being born on a specific point on this crazy earth'.

So why go to church or mosque just because your parents got a kid in a place were all or most people do so? It's silly...

Can all people believing in a god please ask themselves why they do so?' Have you convinced yourself or are you just 'grown into it'? I guess most (99%) are just 'followers' that never asked themselves this question...The other 1% is probably locked up.

And...If you are 'self-convinced' please try to explain to me what occasion or so did this, I really would like to know. For example...Why do I think it is all a bunch of c***? And why is Donovan here convinced he's a 'christian'?

Please people, solution for all misery...Ban religions in general!
