My Thoughts on Organized Religion

And why I’m not a fan

In one of his latest IdeaStream posts, Xavier Van Holde asked us to do a 500-word piece about our thoughts on religion. This is kind of a hard thing for me to write about as I have split feelings about this subject. Personally, I am NOT a religious person. However, I do believe in God, or at least a higher power in the universe.




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
