Various life experiences contribute to the growing number of people who decide to walk away from religion.
Hostilities toward homosexuality, rejection of African belief systems and views on morality, are some of the reasons.
702's Azania Mosaka posed the question to listeners and gave them an opportunity to share their thoughts on the matter.
Listen to the conversation below:
My son is 23 and his brother passed away five years ago due to cancer. He rejected religion, he says God could've done something and he's not interested.— Shelly, caller in Germiston
I grew up in a Catholic household and what made me walk away from religion was that I simply started to read the Bible. If you look at it logically, it's one of the most bizarre books I've read, and I say that with respect.— Jason, caller in Fourways
Leave God up in heaven and use your common sense. It's not like I don't believe in God because there's got to be something.— Glen, caller in Roodepoort
I couldn't find any jobs after matric so I became a stripper. I got out of that life. Does God want me to date older guys for me to have all the things I have. My boyfriend bought me a car he's married, my other boyfriend got me a car and he's married.— Semakaleng, caller in Joburg
I left religion after a lot of conscious deliberation. There was less and less that needed to be explained by God.— Vicky, caller in Joburg
