Congressman Blames Shootings On Attack on Religious Beliefs

“Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Friday that the shootings that took place in an Aurora, Colo. movie theater hours earlier were a result of “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs” and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter.” Read more: Follow us on Twitter: Congressman Gohmert’s Comments Below: “We have been at war with the very pillars, the very foundation of this country … and when … you know … what really gets me as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs and then a senseless, crazy act of terror like this takes place. You know, when people say, where was God in all of this? Well, you know, we don’t let … in fact we’ve threatened high school graduation participants that if they use God’s name that they’re going to be jailed, we had a principal of a school, and a superintendent or a coach down in Florida that were threatened with jail because they said the blessing at a voluntary off-campus dinner. I mean, that kind of stuff … where is God? Where, where? What have we done with God? We told him that we don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.” Read more: Tell us what you think of Rep. Louie Gohmert’s statement in the comment section below.

Question by : What is the difference between formal religion and personal beliefs?
Everyone has a belief, code of conduct, or some form of guide lines for their life. Whether it be you reflecting society’s beliefs or following a doctrine of your religion, everyone beliefs in something. Yet in terms of formal religion and personal beliefs how are they similar…how are they different?

Religion, the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices, is often referred to as those who are not religious as almost a form of bondage, restricted to the expectations and practices of the church. Although some people involved in a specific religion complain about the rules and difficulty in following their religion, religion is a choice. Furthermore the decision as “which religion’ is also a choice. Formal religion is definately more strict than personal beliefs as, for the most part, a specific doctrine is followed while personal beliefs more pertain to the individual beliefs and values of a person. Yet these two are similar in that they are both personal choices…following a religion or not…which religion to follow….The choice is up to you, but life with no God and no faith in anything but yourself is not much of a life at all.
