People Break Down Which Things Aren't A Religion But Folks Treat Them Like One

We as humans seem to worship at the altars of many.

Religion is religion.

There is a history and a purpose behind it.

Have we gotten out of hand with treating other aspects of life in a Godlike manner?

It's all too serious sometimes.


Redditor KayoshiStoryteller wanted to discuss the things people worship on another level.

So they asked:

"What is not a religion, but people treat it with the same attention?"

​The Beyhive. They can be a bit much. But I also see Beyoncé as a religion.

How DARE YOU!!

"Mommy groups. Started getting completely out of hand when my kids were teenagers. I'm a crunchy mom, I'm this kind of mom, or that kind of mom. Those people get rabid. How DARE YOU listen to advice given to you from a doctor about your individual child, MY group thinks 'THIS.' Heresy! Blasphemy! We will CRUCIFY you!"

"They used to helpful, now they are f**king cults."

The Fame

"When the English band Take-that split up, the Samaritans help line had such an influx from beyond broken-hearted teenage girls that they required new personnel for how overwhelmed they became. These girls genuinely lived vicariously through, and lived for these celebrities and little else."

Convince Me

"Some MLM schemes."

battlelevel

"When I was a cable installer. MLM people were my worst fear way more than religious people. One lady spent the entire 4 hours at her house trying to convince me. After 4 hours I still was not entirely convinced I understood what they sold. I am pretty sure they sold self help books. But the self help books were made solely to help you sell more of the self help books to sell more self help books."

What??

"Kpop."

MixWeekly2771

"I had an acquaintance who was hyped for a Kpop concert, totally normal right? But no, she was going off about how this is the perfect outfit to get this guy to fall for her and they'll have a spring wedding unless he prefers autumn in which case she would totally compromise. What??"

"She was 19, doesn't speak any Korean, and doesn't want to live in Korea. She's still young enough for people to find it silly and endearing, somehow. When I was in school, if someone was still going nuts for Beiber(?) or whatever past 16, they def got bullied."

The Culture

"420 culture (I say this as someone who smokes weed)."

eternalrefuge86

"I own a dispensary, a grow, and a processing lab so cannabis is essentially my life, and even I don't take it as seriously as some people. Some people are waaaay to into the culture like to a weirdly fake point where their whole personality is just I smoke weed look at me."

Cheap_Whereas_4803

"I can't stand people who treat smoking weed as their sole personality trait."
