Fame. Is it the new religion?

Postby TalkingPoint » Tue Aug 05, 2003 4:50 pm

Fame. Is it the new religion? People used to worship god(s); now they worship film stars, sports players, princesses and pop singers. In the past people respected faith, now they respect fame.

Fame - Religion?

If fame is the new religion, then we can take comfort in the fact it will not last long. I think we are all entiled to our fifteen minutes of fame (religion)?

I don't really think it is true. Most people like to be famous, but the way to do it is very hard.
In a religion you pray to God, you with your community participate in many activities and you care for the well-being of others; if you had the fame of a god, you would only think of yourself.

I agree with this opinion. Some people do everything to become fame. All these reality shows - take part to them is means five minutes of flame. It is horrible. kemfisz

I don't think so. Fame doesn't last but religion endures...

I partially agree. First, thinking of myself and only myself isn't a new thing. Yet, in these generations, this attitude is more evident. I also agree in the fact that it's ephemeral, it doesn't last (thank heaven!). What I'd say is that people forget religion for their proud. However, these selfish people can't neither worship themselves nor talke a look at someone else.

They're going nuts!!! :roll:

i think people now desire to have the FAME bcos they see the power and money in that kind of thing.
some seem to admire crazily a film star or a pop singer. but they can change their mind in a moment. so this can't prove that people love fame. if they love fame, they want themselves to be famous, not those strange stars.

fame and us....

Postby Anin » Tue Apr 19, 2005 1:46 pm

I think not all the people desire to be famous, some of them are even afraid of it. But, what attracts them is money and a comfortable life without any fears or worries. In Slovakia, has recently ended one TV singing competition. And the attitudes of the main protagonists were various. Some of them had been happy about it, the others were bothered by it and there was even one who couldn´t cope with it and give it up untimely.
I think people look on the fame only in the positive way. But all coins has two faces...
Hi I am 18 and I would like to change my opinions with you.

i don't agree with you because there is quite difference between fame and religion.

secondly, mostly famous people give the credit of their fame to God,
fame is temporary condition but the position of GOD is permanent.

I don't agree with fame is a new religion, because religion is an organized collection of beliefs , cultural systems , and world views for people. Sometimes celebrity have difficult life by fans.I would guess that for the majority of people, being constantly in the public eye and being followed by fans and the paparazzi are nuisances. Some famous people was murdered or stabbed to death by a stalker, and i think noone can't murder God.

I don't agree with this stetament. We believe in God and somebody famous can't be God. We can imitate him/her but he can't be our God. He should behave accordingly to give an example to others for example small children who mimic older and take them as an examlple.

I think I can say that people handle fame like a religion. I totally agree that nowadays people are more interested in some famous people’s life than their God. They prefer to imitate behavior and clothes from stars not from saints. More and more often a lot of young people want to become fame but less and less people pay attention to religion.
They have to remember that any film star, sport player or pop singer not to substitute for God.

I think for some people fame is the new religion. Nowadays there are some people who are capable of unimaginable things to achieve success and to become famous.


Just turn on your TV or read newspapers and magazines and you will see people doing crazy things to achieve fame. Eventually, it can become an addiction for some.

In my mind it isn't because famous people often don't represent good behaviour. They haven't apprioprate rules in their lifes which could imitate their fans. God should to show how we can duly live.

Yes, It is. A lot of people , young people look for new experiances. Our world is developed very mach. More people haven't got any time to go church. Internet, phones, computers are kind of modern god. We spend free time on watching tv, listening music or playing games. Young people don't want be for example Christian. They think , that it is boring. They don't belive in God. In my opinion it is controversial. At beginig of world people have got different gods. Maybe in future all order on the world will be change.

Nowadays more and more people are interested about idols. They follow their profile on facebook, twitter or different websites. They forget about basic items.
I think, fame is only lifestyle by famous people. And we, as normal people, should study about differentiate the most important issue.
For all that, fame isn't a new religion. There hasn't God.

I also believe that fame isn't a new religion. Religion is associated with God, beliefs, traditions. Nowadays fame is appreciated, but that doesn't mean that it is a new religion.

I don't really believe in this, for some people fame might be an important part of life, but people do not pray to celebrities, they just like and admire them.
