Different strokes for different folks!
Something I must share with my friends!
I have not read newspapers and watch CNN, BBC, Fox News, Sky News, RTM1, RTM2, TV3, NTV7 for over two weeks now and I noticed my anxiety level has gone down and I am not easily irritated, and above all I am not irritable, and my high blood pressure has been consistently normal!
I noticed many churches in Montreal have been turned into condominium and they are rather expensive too. So coming from a country where religion is being used as a border collie to round up the flock so to speak, I had to ask THE question: "WHY!"
Why would a house of worship being turned into condominium, when in Europe many churches also being turned into restaurants? Duncan McPhillips, a retiree, said many Canadians in Quebec, who came from a strong Catholic background just do not subscribed to organised religion anymore.
"They are not denouncing God or anything it is just that to them religion as they have been taught smack hyporisy and a sham." What do you mean, I asked, he said:"In the olden days there was a need for the French-Canadians to be united against the English-Canadian, for political reason of course."
"Now there is no need for religion to be used as a bogeyman against anybody, any group or anyone, there is just Canadian, yes French and English and many many more. So when people start not coming to churches anymore what do you do with them, well some being turned into condominiums, and as you said restaurants as in the case of Amsteredam!"
But, Duncan said, while many may have disowned organised religion it does not mean they disowned God, or the Supreme Being, or call it what you may." Here in Canada people are not easily duped anymore, and the churches have no power on their everyday lives anymore."
Well I am not saying we should turned Mosque or Temple into condominium or apartment or restaurant, but the thing to remember is, the government must seriously make an effort to realise that the world is not what it used to be and people are not as stupid as they somethie take them to be!
So live and let live!
