The Middle Path; or, “Religion… Ur doin it wrong!”
So, I was thinking about religion, and how bizarre it really is. On the one hand, I see all these people who claim to belong to this or that faith, but who clearly don’t have any real grasp of what their given faith is actually about.
It almost seems to me like, if you’re going to be religious, and you aren’t a fundie whackjob, then you’re doing it wrong. If you aren’t going to cleave to the precepts of your chosen religion completely, literally, and without compromise, then what’s the freakin’ point?
On the other hand, if you are a fundie whackjob, please go somewhere else, because you’re scaring me and my friends with your crazy talk.
Is there a middle path?
