...wrong?I am an athiest but one of the issues i struggle with is arguing against people that say religion gives them comfort.If someone's love one dies and they find comfort in the belief they are now an angel in heaven why are they wrong to think that? Would good would taking that belief away from them do?
I mean believing in homosexuality is wrong is no different in believing in God because it gives you comfort, as both are about believing in God, which to any atheists seems completely mad.
Everyone needs a set of principles that guide their decisions from day to day.
So, for me, the teachings of Jesus 2,000 years ago gives me some principles
If kicking the cat gives you comfort is it wrong?

to answer the question posed:no, it is not wrong. as long as one's beliefs do not cause another harm, the only damage that may occur is to the believer.as an Atheist, i believe in free will; and even self deception is acceptable.
look at all the mystical, spiritual events that man has experienced throughout history.
