Religion is for individuals who need direction in life. If you are a fully competent person who can make rational decisions and understand these decisions don't come without consequences, good or bad, then it should make absolute sense that you do not require a set of rules to live by. You understand what makes the world turn, you understand that in order to have and maintain friendships you must be caring and dependable. Those aren't rules they are common sense that unfortunately, not everyone has.
Movies are so entertaining because they allow us to break free of the rules society sets forth. Movies establish that rules were made to be broken. In the real world if someone rapes your sister, you can't suddenly become a masked vigilante without some consequences, while I personally think that's all sorts of badass I also understand life simply doesn't function that way, sad face I know. The situation does not end with a roll of credits as the hero wanders off into the night seeking vengeance on future rapists. No. It does not work like that. Unless you are insane.
Generally speaking can be harmful, but how can you address a crowd without generalizing. If you take a blanket statement personally, who's problem is that, yours or the person speaking?
Heaven, Hell and even Purgatory are there to provide direction in life through fear of consequence. If you are scared to death of kicking it in a fiery pit after you die for doing nothing more than wishing for one night with Carmen Electra, first off, what is wrong with you, secondly, I ask what's wrong with you because I see it from my point of view.
That's harmless, though that cute bitch from The View would probably think differently, but I'm sure she grinds pretty regularly.
In your point of view I'll be crisping up real well in the afterlife. Fuck, I'd rather be living it up with Brad and Angelina at the BBQ than drinking some Ensure with the 700 Club.
Yeah, this isn't the last of my thought's either. I'll be back. Fuck if Terminators existed that would be all sorts of rad too. FUCK. Religous zealots could be considered Terminators, of anything fun, but they I don't have the cool endoskeletons or the harsh German accent.
