RELIGION IN PRISON

Another problem I have with guys in here using religion to supposedly better their lives is that they often focus on the wrong things. They debate trivial issues like whether masturbation is okay, as if that is going to make them a better person one way or another. They talk about how gay marriage is ruining the country, or how it’s so awful that transgender Americans are being given attention on TV.

They don’t focus on the REAL problems in their lives, such as why they did drugs and hurt people. No, oftentimes that is already forgiven since their conversion, so they don’t have to worry about it anymore.

But just claiming that you’ve embraced a religion does not change you. It doesn’t address the roots of your problems. Trust me, I know. You need critical thinking, self-criticism, and education. Not cheap “miracles.”
