  • Aug 5 2013: I think when it comes down to it, it's not religion that matters but what they choose to do with it. Some people can seem very religious and by-the-book but deep down lack inner peace and spiritual strength, and end up missing the entire point. Some people can be atheists but have good connection with their soul. Religion can only become a positive influence if it is practiced with clear conscience, kind & open heart and above all a good faith.
    For me at least, I always try to separate faith and religion because the latter has become too saturated and distorted.
