Essay: Religious people usually behave better than non-religious people. Do you agree?
Nowadays, we can communicate with people all over the world, due to the Internet and travelling. We can meet people with different personalities and behaviours. It is a good way to make friends, so our convictions and religion do not disturb us. Unfortunately, there is a stereotype in the air, that "religious people usually behave better than non-religious people". Should we judge other people by their faith?
My view is that it doesn't depend on the religion, but on the human's character. We learn various kinds of behaviour from our environment, especially from family and friends. If parents bring their children up to have a strong sense of right and wrong, they will live according to their rules.
On the other hand, most religions provide their followers with a code of behaviour, so deeply religious people could be an authority for others. Unfortunately, not all people follow that code. Some terrible crimes have been commited by people, who claim to have strong religious beliefs. What is more, we can often see that atheists behave better than religious people, because they have their own life rules. Personally I know some of them znd I am absolutely convinced that they could teach many catholics, how to behave wisely.
All things considered, I really do think, that we shouldn't judge people by their faith and overthrow the stereotype of worse behaviour of non-religious people. We should accept ourselves just as we are.
