Yeah, maybe don’t co-opt religious beliefs you don’t actually adhere to just because it’s pithy and other people on Tumblr do it.
I’m starting to think that picking and choosing facets of religious belief is a dangerous road to tread. I think maybe you don’t get to believe simultaneously in, for example, reincarnation and repentance. Granted, I don’t have details on any religion—nothing qualifies me for this bout except a critical mind—but maybe the fact that they have grown apart and become discrete from each other means some separation is the only thing that gives any of them meaning.
All of this is to say that I think treating members of your tribe and your species is hard to argue against, really. The details of specific religions, however, have cultural and historical significance that you can’t fairly wear as you fancy.
