What is This Thing You Call Religion?

What is this thing you call religion/ because to me it sounds like my bestfriends sobs in a dark room because her family has more or less disowned her because she is bisexual, her church has locked its doors to her pleas for acceptance. albeit she did not open this discovery to me, one who she considers family months after she told people she barely speaks to, unlike her religion, i did not abandon her in her hour of need.

what is this thing you call religion? because to me, it seems like a declaration of century old wars, a call for blood of savage heathens that lack belief in you God. it seems like a cut to the souls that demand substance to heal the wounds that life itself has inflicted on us.

so what is this thing that you call religion? because to me it seems like a security blanket that causes ache and pain for those that sleep  outside of it.

so what is this thing you call religion?

The End
