Shoes on, get up in the morn'
Cup of milk, let's rock and roll
King Kong, kick the drum, rolling on like a Rolling Stone
Religion as we observe it now is not about preaching anymore but telling someone how to live. We have different beliefs, different religion thus forcing someone your own religion's teachings is not appropriate. Also it is only use for the purpose of bigotry and misogyny, people are fast to say that "Gay people should burn in hell" yet they themselves is not following all the scriptures' rules. Hypocrisy is speaking magnitude. Religion is fine as long as you do not force its teaching to others.How can you personally improve the perceptions of other people about your religion?
As an atheist myself, I cannot answer that as I do not believe in divine authority, god or any gods. The thing I can only say is that we should not force our religion to someone, we should not use it just for the sake of teaching yet we ourselves is not following the rules of scripture.How does your faith handle social sciences issues such poverty, pre-marital sex and same sex marriage?
As an atheist I see nothing wrong with pre-marital sex and same sex marriage. Why should we tell someone not to be happy just because our own belief says so? That is too selfish and self-centered. Also, we should not meddle on how people will run their life, should they choose to have sex, it is up to them, should they choose to marry same sex, it is up to them. It is none of our business.If given the chance to talk to a government official, what would be a possible program you want our government to organize in support of different religious sect?
I will not encourage the government to support any religious sect. Our government is a Republic form of government not Theocracy, where in we follow divine authority. The problem here is that if we support for examples catholic by agreeing with them that same-sex marriage must not be signed into law, then we are doing a what we call Tyranny of the majority. Also not all people in this country has the same beliefs, by supporting sects of religious order will just show favoritism. Thus government should not support any religious sect.
