live accordingly

Religion isn’t a hateful thing. It never once was. Nice, tolerant Jewish, Christian, Hindu and Muslim people can live in peace and all know that, essentially, it’s the same God and let’s be fine and content and live accordingly with each other. The problem is the sociopaths who jumped on religion and thinks it gives them an excuse to do violent shit.

You sad, dimwitted, retarded pricks. You ruined World Peace.

We all know what you did.  What you’ve done to the world.

Summary:

Or the one where Harry and Zayn get appointed as guardians to their late best friend’s daughter, and their lives turn upside down accordingly.

If your religion tells you that you shouldn’t marry someone from the same gender, then don’t, if your religion tells you that you shouldn’t have an abortion even if the mother’s life is in danger, if your religion tells you to not drink alcohol or eat pork, if your religion tells you not to enjoy premarital sex, then don’t!! If your religion tells you to cover your hair for whatever reason, then do it. If your religion dictates how you should live your life based on a book from many centuries ago, then go ahead and live your life accordingly. That’s called religious freedom, and you only find it available to all members of society in secular countries. But the minute you try to impose any of that on others, or expect anyone else to be just like you, that’s not, “respecting your religion”, or religious freedom, that’s the basis of oppression and theocracy!

We’re all fools… all the time. It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were a fool today too. I think the only way we can grow and get on in this world is to accept the fact we’re not perfect and live accordingly.
—  Ray Bradbury, The Illustrated Man
We’re all fools,“ said Clemens, "all the time. It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were a fool today too. I think the only way we can grow and get on in this world is to accept the fact we’re not perfect and live accordingly.
