if they are positive and avoiding the truth, they are positive cowards
Amen to that!
I agree, these people are all assured of going to heaven and that god is watching over them, no harm can come to them. What better way to think positive?
This really is what keeps the people I know going. They are comfortable knowing their lives are always going to be as good as they are now. God wouldn't let them down now, would he?
Hadn't thought about it before but it is the people who go to church every week that totally ignore reality. Hmm, wonder why I hadn't put 2 + 2 together before.
(I do know (on the internet) really caring, socially involved people for whom religion is their guide. It is those people who are too self involved to look around who believe nothing can harm them as long as they are believers.)
