Sometimes I can’t imagine how naive religious people are.
All they can care about is living a good life and making it to heaven.
But the problems in this world are so big and cannot be solved be merely praying.
We need serious action to find solutions to famines, environmental degradation, water/air pollution, poverty, overpopulation and all those other problems far away from our small lifes.
I think I need to rock the world of the religous people and tell them giving money for charity is not enough.
I think it is even necessary to tell them the developing aid did not work as expected and we are to blame for it.
But somewhere in my heart or another sensitive place I don`t want to rock their world.
Because what they believe is a solemn thing, they trust in God.
I cannot trust God anymore: as a six-year-old I prayed to God and asked him to solve the famine in Africa and feed the children there.
It did not help, the famine is still there, the food is running short and the population is still growing exceedingly.
But I find it a precious thing, being religious, and it tears me apart I have to tell people close to me their believe is not sufficient.
