Finding Meaning In The World Today

I don’t care what religion (or non-religion) it is you practice, but in America… Christianity (for example)… is tied eerily closely to the right!

For that reason, it has become increasingly difficult for me to understand why! Just, why!

Why do I believe?

Why are displays of “Christianity” becoming so ridiculous beyond measure?

It ultimately makes me question the process of finding meaning (through religion) in the world today!

I am educated on many religions, and I understand the hold that the right has on Christianity.

I also understand how mixing politics with religion is not only dirty, but it’s the only way the Republicans can exist today!

At least it was before the current president…

Everything has now become a free for all!

The whole thing cheapens what religion stands for, when it’s so closely combined with politics.

All I am left with is that mainstream Christianity’s following is all the same.

Fine for you maybe… but, far from fine for me!

For me personally… the only way I can operate is to believe in something that’s not really supported!

And, what I mean by this is… I believe in Jesus, and what Jesus stood for!

But, my interpretation of the Bible may not be the same as yours!

Whether any god is real or true or has ever existed, means less to me than the movements that attempt (and, do an effective job) at turning me away from my belief in the Christian god.

It’s all just so discouraging for those who want to follow an institution of value.

Do you have any thoughts on what’s happening in the U.S. with regards to Christianity (or any religion for that matter)? And, how are politics and religion intertwined where you live?

  1. I was just reading an article yesterday that mentioned a differentiation of Christian orthodoxy and fundamentalism. The article was specifically about mental illness stigma, but it said that in general, higher levels of fundamentalism (i.e. believing that one’s own way is the only legitimate way) tends to be associated with greater levels of intolerance, while orthodoxy (i.e. believing in the central tenets of the Bible) does not. I suspect the Christian Right in the U.S. is largely fundamentalist.

    In Canada, there’s a much smaller Evangelical population, and a lot of the Catholic population is centred in Quebec, which has its own interesting dynamics and tends to lean morally liberal.
