Snippets Of My Mind #2

Topic : RELIGION


She doesn’t know the Holy words by heart, they said.
She doesn’t love Father enough, they said.
One day she asked them the meaning of the endless prayers they boasted to chant.
For once, they were silent.

  1. Being an atheist, I loved it. And it is so true – people who boast most about religious things – they hardly apply any of the principles in their life… It’s limited to the chant. That’s it.
    Thank you for this wonderful post. 🙂

    1. As always, Alexia, your comment is a delight. Thank you so much! 🙂 🙂
      As it happens to be, I’m a firm believer of God, but I completely agree with you. Sometimes I am stunned by how people do unacceptable things and then expect it all to be forgiven just because they attend the weekly mass and have the 10 commandments memorised. I believe all of that is inconsequential if you’re not a good human being, or atleast trying to be one.

        I think it goes without saying how much I love your blog. ❤ ❤
        And I've been working on some short stories that I'll be posting soon.
        I believe they've never been my forte so I decided to try it out this vacation. 😀 I really hope you'll like them, your views mean a lot.

    2. By the way, I think I got a little fierce.. I don’t have any grudges whatsoever against theists but it’s just that a lot of people criticise me for not believing, etc. So it’s a very sensitive point for me. But I really do think it’s a personal choice and doesn’t matter as much till we aim at being just.

      1. Honestly, I get fierce about this issue too. And I couldn’t agree more, whether I pray, how I pray, they’re all matters of personal choice. I believe in praying in my own way behind closed doors and feel terribly apprehensive when people judge me because I don’t publicly pray the way they want me to. I suppose it would be even worse for an atheist.
