Ouch. Can we chill a little here? I'm getting a little offended by all of this nonsense.

Stay on topic for pete's sake. Who knew that was such a freaking hard thing to do.

I'm not offended and I didn't think anyone has posted anything offensive before. Things have gotten much more heated on riding critique pages before and stayed open. This is a touchy subject but right now I think it's a discussion more than any debate at all.

Not all churches are that way, not at all. I actually stayed with a church when I was going through some tough times and had nowhere else to spend the night. I'm not even a practicing ANYTHING and they took me in. HOWEVER, I have encountered many who were like that.

The catholic church is a huge organization. That's great, however that alone causes problems and that is what I was talking about and why I think you can go to church while sitting in your living room.
The church has now and has always had it's own motives be they positive, negative, or otherwise. There are some amazing people in the church, but there is also politics in the church.

I have met some VERY negative people who have used the bible to "condemn" me. I have been told the bible was the reason for everything from not achieving a 4.0 to my sexual abuse as a child. Do I blame this on the church as a whole? No, of course not...It is made up of people, not saints. Does it make me want to find my own path with whatever afterlife or God there may be? Yes. I've also met some amazing people in the church.

I have met plenty of people that go to church multiple times a week and "sin" while not in church. I have met plenty of people who never step foot in a church but love God and follow the commandments. That is where I was coming from with that post/statement. I find nothing at all wrong with the religion, sometimes it's the people who get in the way.

A bit off topic, but I think it all ties in together and I'm learning! :)

Exactly. Nothing has gotten 'out of hand'. It's almost like it's people's imaginations that are getting the best of themselves and anticipating something to go wrong...

This was posted a ways back, and for that I apologize.

God Forbid that I should Go To Heaven in Which There are no Horses! I think it would be pretty boring.

Fair point, would it be heaven without them?

^ Yes. I do not think for one second that God will be 'boring'.

I don't want to get into a big heaven debate here but it's questionable if anyone goes to 'heaven'. How can anyone know until after death?

Spiritual beliefs are so personal to everyone. I, personally, don't really know that I buy into the whole "heaven/God" deal, but I do believe there is an afterlife. I do believe that animals have spirits/souls, so I believe they travel to the afterlife just as humans do.

Animals In Heaven

For those who are of faith and are interested in what the Bible may say on it.
