I'm with you. I think it's mostly due to people jumping on the "Bad old religion" bandwagon. If it's religion base, then any and all theories
relating to how horrible religion is, is taken at face value. So much so that no one even cares to actually look into the mess.
If someone comes forth and says they were raped by a priest and demands 1 million dollars from the church, there would be a cry louder than ever for
that church to pay up and the priest be damned.
If this same issue came up where a black boy was raped by a white man with no relation to religion, they'll usually ask to see the proof. But then...
Child molestation is such an issue today that anyone accused is considered guilty right off the bat. So I guess that works both ways. Still, it's
sickening how easily people prosecure what they don't agree with from the start. Guilty by association, or by default.
If I make a totally false thread here about religion, I would bet that the first page will be filled with hateful comments on how horrible religion is
and not a single one would have looked into the facts. yet, as I mentioned, If I throw a picture up of a UFO, the first page will be with every
explination but a UFO. The second page would be about how whack I was for believing in such things.... Unless I'm liked by the masses, and have been
here for 10 years... or a Mod.
Love the Bias here!
I try to be skeptical about everything I read here on both sides of the coin. Mostly because I wanna know the truth of the matter, the real truth and
where blame should be based on my own thoughts.
Now, seeing 3 popes together, I instantly thought, hmmm... possible conspiracy, but def a weird situation. Seeing the picture, it just looked
doctored from the get go, still I had to dig into it to make sure, because that is a really curious situation if it were real and I wanted to know
more about it at least for my own piece of mind.
Thanks for the response!
...and seeing how you read through the posts before making a response shows you are also an inquisitive person.
