Because there are many dark, foreboding, negative people out there that are desperate for attention and will get it any way they can.

There's NO possibility for genuine Islam to coexist with anything else over the long haul.
Satanists, likewise are never going to be buddy buddy with Pentecostals nor vice versa.
Even rabid Hindus burn Christians to death in our era.
Why don't you add church-burning Buddhists in Sri Lanka?
Or Hindu radicals who break up Christian revival meetings in India?
You see, what you are actually saying is that Christianity cannot coexist with these religions. Christianity can't coexist with any religion, because it keeps trying to steal adherents from the others. Christians evangelize. They proselytize. They hound and badger and bully and bribe in their mad determination to infect everyone around them with their particular and specific brand of delusion.
I don't condone attacks on Christians, but I cannot help but sympathize with the feelings of some of the attackers. Christianity, in its evangelical guise, is a very objectionable faith.
Muslims have coexisted very well with Hindus, Christians, Jews and many others at different periods of history. Evangelical Christianity, unless forced to do so by the powers that be, has never coexisted peacefully with anybody.

This is what mine means to me. I like ninjas and how they are but shadows to the rest of the world( kinda like me).
I want to be a sniper, I usually close my left eye to look through the scope(get it?),
I'm always tired or sleepy (hence the sleepy eye), dark back ground, (because not all of my friends truly know me),
and the cool hair( because I can be the coolest dude once you get to know me)
and the green vest because I like the military.(it all goes together with the sniper/ninja type persona) .

I look at conspiracies from two sides.
One side is for secrecy and one side is for revelation.
I use the grail to illustrate that it is a personal quest, to find truth and in the end is light.

I don't think it's dark, but I like the colors and the strangeness of it.

That's quite off topic.
Perhaps a suitable thread could be started in the proper forum.

Dark? Foreboding? OK, I didn't put any tongues in it, so that's a point for me...
. . . from the back, there does seem to be a resemblance. Maybe it's the hat? (I wear a black Stetson.)
Also, I have found through life that there are times where violence is the only reason that can be counted on. A sad fact, but true nonetheless.
I have also learned that the threat of violence is a more effective deterrent than violence itself. So, I tend to stay to the shadows, as darkness tends to create an aura of fear among the silly creatures that share this planet with me, and therefore they leave me be more readily.
I'm really not an evil person (unless you count that one time I.... J/K ), but I am one who will fight to the bitter end for a cause worth fighting for.
I am also one who will help a stranger in distress at any given opportunity.
That's what my avatar says to me, perhaps it says something different to others.
I am thinking about making a RL pic of myself (no tongues, I promise. ) into an avatar, just haven't gotten around to it. No promises that it won't be worse than this one though...

In the end I probably wouldnt differentiate between positive and negative avatars but quality/classy and tasteless/low-quality avatars.
