When I was a young boy, I was never pleased with the idea of people trying to force their religious ideology on me; even though I am an adult now, the feeling is still the same.
In most cases, we are born into a religion. (That doesn’t mean that you have to remain a member of that particular religion; you are always free to change it if you want to).
One of my pet-peeves is: religions that claim that they are the only true path to God (I always thought that there was something wrong with that picture).
In my humble opinion, people should be free to worship God/Goddess in any manner that they choose.
I have said on numerous occasions, “One can lead a spiritual life without being religious.”
