Of course Fox News says that's bad.

Because that holds so much credibility and is totally not biased.

I'm changing my religion to Zoroastrianism, because I can't stand all these people asking me about Baha'ism
discomfiting says2014-04-20T14:55:54.8469999-05:00
Whats baha'ism?
discomfiting says2014-04-20T14:56:09.8230959-05:00
What's Zoroastrianism?
Jifpop09 says2014-04-20T14:59:08.2726398-05:00
Baha'ism is the worlds seventh largest international religion. (Not including traditional religions)

There's actually a Zoroaster temple built into the grand canyon, lol

I mean, if it's their choice to abandon their religious beliefs and believe in something else as long as it doesn't negatively affect others, that's their decision.

I googled that temple thing; that's actually really cool honestly.

Does it have to be good or bad? It's a personal choice, it is neither good nor bad unless the person taking the decision decides that it is good or bad. In any case it would be bad if they didn't have a choice: for a religious group where half of the group isn't religious is a rather absurd idea. It's good for the individual, and since religion is not decreasing in the world (it is in the western world maybe, but not in the world as a whole) the religious organizations aren't hurting either. It is neither good or bad: it is a choice.
discomfiting says2014-04-20T15:32:02.1532928-05:00
^ basically how i feel. So i said "yes" because it's their own decisions . I wouldve said "yes" if the poll was versed too.

This is a loaded question. Just like oculus explained.

SamuelMarshall: are you sure that's the worst choice a family could make? I mean giving someone a foundation in something that could be wrong is absolutely terrible, but perhaps something like leaving your infant home alone for extended periods of time, which could potentially lead to their being burned alive in a house fire or even getting kidnapped by someone who knows the infant is in the house alone, could be considerably worse choice. Or even intentionally harming your family.

According to this recent data, Believers still represent the vast majority of Americans (in one faith or another). There is a difference between abandoning faith & changing denominations/religions. Http://religions.Pewforum.Org/reports

I think people should follow your own path whatever that may be. Whether that is leaving or staying
