The reason that I speak up about that subject rather than hold my peace is that I've seen that belief influence people's poor life decisions. A cousin of mine killed himself when he was fifteen. He said goodbye to his mother and sister, went to a cemetery and shot himself over an open bible. He believed that he would be going to a better place. Religion can be good if it brings comfort to people and causes them to treat other people well, but don't be conned out of living your life.
