If you dont know right from wrong, religion is not going to help you. God says not to harm another, but it doesn't seem to matter to anyone anymore, there is still a few of us who care though, thank God...

A lot of people are religious but have no spirituality. They go to church believing that they're a Christian when the rest of the week they are (figuratively speaking) stabbing other people in the back. Being spiritual is a 24/7 thing not a one hour a week thing. To me, religion is knowing the theory, spirituality is DOING what is RIGHT. I consider myself spiritual - Jesus is my role model and I do my best to follow in His footsteps - which means treating other people right, doing what's...

God bless humans! xo xo xo xo xo xo.

If morality only dealt with a few social issues then I might agree but religion in itself is absolutely, positively nothing more than some mans ideas usually ignoring the purpose of total morality! 100% full time morality is obeying what our Creator, God, put for us to abide by in the 10 commandments. So many deny God & really don't care for morality so to practice it part time, in a Heavenly sense, is a waste of time but in the sense of co- existing on this planet with the rest of the...

I don't agree with either above choice :)

Have know many so-called Religious people( I used to be one) who lacked empathy and compassion. Their rule of thumb "God gave man dominion over animals" which meant to them killing or maiming was man's right. What a load of horseshit this is. I do believe in God and also believe these so-called Christians will one day know the truth of their actions.

interesting that Mr.Russell turned to Christianity in the latter part of his life, don't you think?

Religion has nothing to do with it in my opinion. You have empathy for animals and humans or you don`t. If you don`t that`s a real problem for our Society. It is scientifically proven that people who are cruel to animals are cruel to their own kind. We pretend to sort out bad animals from the good ones like dogs that bite their owner(s) but we are giving killers of humans a slap on the wrist... Disgusting.. Then are are scientist who are being paid by the Govs around the world to be cruel...

Then are are scientist who are being paid by the Govs around the world to be cruel to animals in laboratories. These cruelty is called in the name of science etc. What B..S tbo. People who deliberately torture animals for money are as criminal as the person down the road abusing his Pet. One sentence for all with no exception. The world would be a better place without these psychopath that have no empathy for any of God`s creatures.That`s my opinion.Like it or not.

humans are animals, something which many of us forget - neither better nor worse, just the same.

“Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” (Steven Weinberg).

What and how do you define morals, sexual, self, humanity, nature. I believe in a higher being and for me there are rules, to be moral is something within myself. I do believe that those without religion do have different rules and that those without a belief in God usually don't believe in the same right and wrong and moral decisions that I do. So for me my faith in my God makes me moral and teaches me right from wrong.
