Why won't you talk to gay people and why would you disown your gay son?
Oh right, because you "disagree" with it.
Your probably gonna respond "irrelevant" or something along those lines. Sorry I need to know this, if it wasn't for this, I may not have much of a
problem with you.
You can disagree with it but saying you'd ditch friends if you found out they were gay, disown your son, and so on is very unnerving, and yeah you
said it had nothing to do with religion; well okay, I don't know that, ether way...it's just you call for tolerance it just seems a bit off mind
we have Jews Screeming Muslims and Christians will go to Hell
Where? Because surely not in any of the forums I've been in; not in conspiracies in religions or this one, so point me towards it.
Oh, and WiseSheep is not Jewish, hes more of a "Jews for Jesus", apparently.
Yeah, if thats it, then he fooled me too with his avatar and whatnot. All the Jews I know don't believe in hell, they again they're reform. Well my
Conservative Jewish friend doesn't believe in Hell, ether. So I don't know.
We have Christians Screeming Muslims will go to hell
Not just Muslims, but I agree.
we have a pagon who hates Muslims and Christians
I generally dislike the religions, due to proselytism, but I won't rule out someone as a friend based on they're faith.
In my defense, I consider runetang, Beachcoma, SpeakerOfTruth, and Leyla friends (off the top of my head)
you may not like the other persons Faith
but is it that hard to show respect for others?
It's hard to respect someone who says people who are your close friends should die.
Not referring to you, but that relatively new Muslim who joined, who was it, started with a K, whatever. I was with him in that one thread on most of
his beliefs (besides proselytism and the religion itself), I was getting rather excited that Islam was not as bad as I thought, and I was right...not
to the pristine point I might add, up until he got to the part about homosexuals having to be killed...
I find it hilarious how Muslims and Christians bicker amongst themselves, now to be honest it is usually the Christians here on ATS who are the
attackers and the Muslims who are the defenders, but they're the majority; I've noticed the majority is usually more open to attacking like that,
psychological backup. It happens not just on the internet, but in countries and communities all over the world.
And anyway, back to my point, what I find funny about Christians and Muslims bickering to each other, on the world's stage too, is that the
Christians will see Muslims as blasphemers, etc, while the extremist Muslims will say the same back.
To a pagan like me, your both the same. You have so many similarities that both religions make no difference at all to me, in fact you out of all
religions to me have the most similarities. What are those, you ask?
Belief that pagans/atheists will go to hell (mainstream, at least)
Proselytism, notice how both Christianity and Islam are the most widespread religions, mostly over formerly pagan cultures (I don't know
much on the details of the Muslim expansion, I've heard things, but it's so hard to find an unbiased source on Islam on the internet, it's too the
point where if the site is run by Christians I won't read it), but I know tons were killed in the Christian expansion, regardless, in both cases, my
brethren were converted. It's still something that ticks me off, sorry, but it does.
Some of the worst potential for mis-interpretation and extremism, and general arrogance.
I'm just saying what comes to my mind, and I have ADHD and OCD and Bipolar disorder, so if any of you think I'm straying a little off topic...
I really don't care. Oh and in before "STOP USING YOUR DISORDERS AS AN EXCUSE etc etc"
