In Relations To Beliefs System And Religion, Has Anyone Used Your Beliefs Or Religion As A Form Of Abuse Against You?

In Relations To Beliefs System And Religion, Has Anyone Used Your Beliefs Or Religion As A Form Of Abuse Against You?

This is in relations to beliefs and religion systems. Has anyone used God or your beliefs in a way that was or is damaging to you or in a way that hurt you (mental abuse for example)?

Not really, as I don't really have any religious beliefs, some people suggest I should believe, and get pushy as they believe having belief helps them, but just because it helps them and feels good to them, it doesn't mean it does for me, and I often wish people would respect my opinions and right to have no religious beliefs, although I'd never be mean or nasty to others about their beliefs, or use it against them, that is not right, and if someone is using your religious beliefs against you, then their not the kind of people you want or need in your life, find better people to be with, I hope this gives you some peace of mind, and that you can feel some self certainty about your personal religious rights and beliefs, please don't let religious arguments or difference in opinion affect your mental state xxx *hugs* :)

My sister said that I have God, how can I be depressed? She doesn't really believe in God.

@A MyDepressionTeam Member, one family member, who I am close to, used to be in such denial about my illness. ...but she in her 90's sees things clearly now!
