At one stage of my life I thought exactly the same.
Why bother with religion when it causes so much pain and hate in the world, so much terror.
But I guess it also gives us something to believe in. Something that when the world all goes bad, when we are having a terrible day we at least have something to keep our faith in..
Religion could I guess also be a uniting tool - though it seems lately it's something that is divided us.
lol I actually knew what I wanted to say, it's just so hard to put it down in words!
I don't know and wouldn't know - I'm not religious
