Religion is not that hard, people.

Attend whatever service you feel is right, take the lessons to learn how to better yourself, and then use those lessons to better yourself. That's it.

It's when religious people start policing the world that problems tend to arise. Satan isn't everywhere, regardless of what some of these people might think.

Reddit user, Dreammare56, wanted to know when someone's values crossed the line when they asked:

"Whats the stupidest thing you ever seen a religious person call "satanic"?"

You wouldn't expect your food to be accused of being a satanist, but, this is the world we live in.

This November, Puerto Ricans can vote on one of three options–including becoming the 51st state in the U.S.

The U.S. House of Representatives introduced the Puerto Rico Status Act last December.

The bill would grant the island commonwealth either U.S. statehood, independence, or independence while retaining some U.S. affiliations.

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away in the fall of 2020, the United States panicked.

Namely, democrats and liberals were terrified by the prospect of another conservative judge on the United States Supreme Court, which already had a two-seat majority.

Then of course, there was the ongoing debate as to whether or not then-sitting president Donald Trump was entitled to pick another Supreme Court judge, as the 2020 presidential election was only weeks away.

Barack Obama was famously banned from appointing Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court owing to the fact that it was an election year, even though President Obama still had eight months left in his presidency.

Of course, RBG's death at age 87 also brought to the forefront an ongoing debate about whether there should be age limits for Supreme Court Justices.

As humans with autonomy and knowledge, we try to protect ourselves as much as we can. However, accidents do happen, and while we can expect the unexpected, we can't always protect ourselves from it.

Because there isn't always a defense, people sometimes have a close brush with death. They experience something that could've killed them but, by some miracle... didn't.

More people have stories like that than we expect.

Redditors are no exception and, in fact, were eager to share their close calls.
