Comment: If there is a god who gave me

If there is a god who gave me

If there is a god who gave me logic and reason to think that same god would expect me to ignore it always made me roll my eyes at the idea of religion. As a logical reasonable person the only conclusion I can come to about an afterlife or god is that "I just don't know." I think that's the only honest answer anyone can give. Give me any child and let me raise it from telling them about the great horned bunny Jackalope god and they would be sitting here today telling all of us who don't believe in the "Great Jackalope" we are crazy.

So it's good to see a Pope like this who actually seems like a truly humble person, but more importantly, RATIONAL. If you can't reason to why you have rights, then it's all arbitrary. Anyone can point to their religious text of choice and make any claim about morality and you can't argue with that.

If there is a god and he's moral and just then he will realize all I can try to do is be a moral and just person based on logic and reason. Any "supreme being" that would fault a human who lived a moral and just life just because they they picked the wrong religious group out of the thousands to choose from or because they didn't pick any, wouldn't be a moral or just god.

"In reality, the Constitution itself is incapable of achieving what we would like in limiting government power, no matter how well written."
