Religion is a salad bar. It's all about making oneself happy and contented, snug in your own little world which is safe. Pick and choose as you please - this is a way to find faith that can guide you through life.
If you don't like one bit of a certain religion, what's to stop you taking the bits you like and stuffing the rest? If we look at religion as merely a set of moral and ethical guidelines to guide you through life, then surely one can simply take what seems right?

Sure, if you're a hardcore Christian, or Jew, or whatever, you'll disagree with this. That's fine, if you want to accept the whole and nothing more of a certain religion, then that is your choice and I commend you for it. But if you want to pick and choose, and that makes you happy, so be it.
