As for myself I would TL;DR the Bible, I haven't actually read it so I guess I already have.

    Most Christians have the exact same reaction to the bible. I imagine being a Christian is kind of like getting a software license. Don't bother reading it, just scroll down and click "I agree".

    not true if you are a true practicing catholic you dont need to read the bible when you go to church each week you learn a bit more about the bible and if you are a true practicing catholic then you dont just hit i agree, i disagree strongly with a great deal of catholic dogma it doesnt mean that i am not a catholic, the curch is best compared to a big corporation at the top (the pope or CEO) is really out of touch with whats going on at all the little franchises (the chruches) and if you find a good franchise (parish) the employees (priests)really care about customers (parishioners) and help them work through their problems, religion and faith are hard and if you blindly follow what is being told to you without any personal reflection then you are really just a mindless robot and really missing the whole point which at its core is the same with many religions treat each others with love and respect people figure that out in different ways whether you're Buddhist Islamic daoist atheist agnostic believe in reincarnation or any other faith its not faith if you mindlessly agree they are meant to challenge how you feel about your life and the world

    1. Shouldn't you have an idea what's in your scripture before you consider yourself a part of any religion? It's like applying for a job. You want to know as much about the company as you can before being a part of it.

    2.If the Pope, or CEO if you will is so out of touch with what's going on in the smaller branches, shouldn't that indicate how poorly run and jaded the religion is? (BTW: The pope is more aware than you think. In fact, he's done his part to help child molesters in the church avoid persecution.)

    3. If you disagree with a lot of Catholic dogma, don't call yourself a catholic. That'd be like if I was pro-life, hated gun control, wanted the rich to get tax cuts, was right-wing on several other issues then called myself a socialist. It wouldn't make sense. Perhaps you're just a non-religious theist who hasn't figured it out yet. I don't know.

    4. I'll end on a positive. I definitely agree that no matter what you think, you'd better come to the conclusion yourself, and be honest about what you think. I'm only trying to put an idea two in your head for the heck of it. The conclusion is yours to come to.

    i disagree with some catholic dogma i like the religion and what it stands for and i think your example of how the pope helped protect child molesters illustrates exactly how out of touch he is, most Catholics wanted those priests face their crimes and many felt betrayed that the pope did protect them, i follow many of the themes and virtues taught by the religion i think that doing that is more important than following rules people put down a few centuries ago when people were not as open minded as they are now,

    You say you should know your scripture before you join but thats not quite right, i was baptized when i was an infant so how could i know scripture? My parents didnt know all of the scripture either, so why would they want me to join a religion even they didnt fully understand, because the religion and its virtues are a good way to grow up, the ten commandants, the golden rule and much of Jesus' teachings are all good ways to live your life and they wanted that for their child, growing up in a religion is just that learning as you get older you dont need to know all of the scripture or what a bunch of hyper conservative old men say whats important about religion that gets lost in the shuffle is their message virtues, people put to much into the dogma written by humans, humans the most fallible people on the planet, the bible isnt a code its a loose guideline that inst necessary to memorize

    This is why I'm against baptism. I think imposing faith on a kid isn't right, especially when they're too young don't fully understand what it means.

    A lot of those teachings don't require religion to learn though. My folks had no trouble teaching me right and wrong without it. Not only that, but the ten commandments aren't that impressive to me. 4/10 are just about respect for authority (more specifically god). The only real rules in them are don't steal or kill, which we should be able to figure out anyway. The golden rule is again common sense. Treat others how you expect to be treated.

    Again, I like how you ended it. People are fallible, and the bible was written by humans, therefore making it fallible. Are there good ideas in it? Sure, but I think there are better, more consistent sources of morality out there. If you read through the bible, particularly the old testament, you see a lot of cruel laws that have little to nothing to do with morality. This isn't a book you should take literally, and if you aren't taking it literally, rather taking the good from it, you've proven that you don't need it to tell you how to live, and that your morals are based on logic and kindness rather than Jesus anyway.

    i disagree that moral are based on logic morals are completely emotionally and personality driven and largely based on how a person is raised most morals we have in the western world are based on what our ancestors have passed down and most mdern society is for better or worse based on the core values of the monothesitic religions so the morals you say are logical are only logical because the society you were raised in made you think like that and theay again for better or worse learned it from the monothestic relgions

    I'm sorry, but it's getting really hard to read your comments. Spelling and punctuation are your friends!

    Most human behavior is genetic. (including morality, when you say it's passed down, I imagine that's what you mean, right?)

    ya sorry wrote that at work real fast and ya

    Both you and Sophisticated have valid points. A lot of morality is based on some kind of dogma, but I think on this day and age learning morals is a part of everyday life and does not require a book to teach them to you.
