So, as an Indonesian, most of my relatives and friends are God fearing fellas who would stand up for their religion, spread the words of wisdom about how good and peaceful it is, why it’s the best among others and why people should respect it.
On the other hand, they want to appear as open minded-well informed-smart ass people who could live in a free world with others who don’t share the same beliefs. They do cool things which are against their religious values such as:
– getting drunk/high on drugs
– eating pork (being cool just because it’s ridiculously forbidden)
– doing non marital sex (with a kafir!)
– being a prostitute…
Yes, seriously, I know some “religious prostitute”. They do sex for money but they post prayers and religious stuffs on their Facebook Timeline. Then they would get offended when I make fun of their holy religion without realising that they’ve been making fun of it even more by being themselves.
Which is ironic. And funny.
Here is my advice:
Be yourself and do whatever makes you happy as long as you can control it, be safe, and make sure that you won’t make a mess or hurt people around you; because you live only once. And if you believe in an afterlife based on your religious views, you will definitely go to hell anyway. Am I right or am I very right?
That being said, you better not sound silly by being such a living oxymoron. Stop bitching about being a vegetarian when you eat meat everyday.
