I'm sure we all came from a religious background , our family or our society were or are religious and we object on many things about the rules of that religion , if you were given the choice to change one rule or law in your previous religion , what would it be?
I'm not entirely sure which individual rule I would change but I know it's generally correlating with the ideas of changing the oppressive roles it puts down on women. Though I more so want to change the ideas it spreads such as the negativity towards people of the lgbt community or people of different races, even how it paints all atheist in a bad light.
Please don't assume we all came from a religious background; I was born into an Atheist family...Atheist for generations going back to the end of the XIX century, in France.
If I am not mistaken, my parents and siblings -who moved to Argentina in the 1940s- were one of the first Atheists families in said country.
I would get rid of the rule about tithing 10%. I was always told when I experienced financial woes that it was because I didn't tithe. It was infuriating to be told that if I basically flushed ten percent of my income down the drain I would have more money. ????
I think that the disclaimer that is always omitted at the end of the bible should be reinstated: "This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events and incidents are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental."
I have never held a religion, ever. But as far as the rules of the ones around me, I would change the rule of proselytizing that most hold. It's one thing to believe in something, it's another to try and convert others whether by force or coercion, these dogmas need to stop spreading as they always clash and history is littered with the trail of dead left in their wake.
I do not come from a religious background and know many people that don't. Only one rule to change, not fair, how many rules have religion imposed on us? How much knowledge was lost when religions burnt so called witches at the stake? The doctors and scientists of their time burnt and the knowledge and land kept by the church, these are true terrorist in my eyes. All of religions rules want changing or even better banning!
