Yep! I have a gripe with some religious people - and some atheists, too. It’s not whether someone believes or not, it’s how they go about expressing it/disrespecting each other in the process.

Default Do you really beleive what you wrote?

In my experience religion isnt about money or power or weath it is about Faith or Believe in something greater then oneselves and that is not achieved through any of the actions that you described. The true path to a holy/ religious life is the complete opposite of what you wrote, service to others, love faith kindness heart and caring for others and the world around you. Anyone is capable of Love are they not?

Religions do not tell you to be anything they present scripture or texts that was written by god or man and dont force you to like it read it or otherwise it is your choice to go there or not too.

Your trying to understand faith using the brain when faith is in the heart not the head or the brain.
