Before continuing to read through this thread, you agree not to post any responses that may be offensive to any group of people. You agree that you
will not make any political, religious or ethnic statements about non-Christians, non-Whites, non-Heterosexuals which may be deemed inappropriate or
derogatory. In other words, if you wish to be treated fairly as a minority, make sure you do not view the needs of the majority. If you do not agree
to the following, please leave the thread now and ignore all further posts within.
Before I continue, please be mindful that it is not my intention to offend anyone and I am sorry in advance if I manage to do so. I am sorry if any of
my words are taken the wrong way and are seen as biased against others. If I present statistics and factual data pertaining to non-Christians,
non-Whites, non-Heterosexuals, I will only mention ones that are positive in nature.
I will also be very mindful that the mere mention of ANY piece of information from a past negative event insinuates that I agree with what happened in
the past and support the ideology behind it. In order to avoid this happening, I will only make statements that support or are bias in favour of those
who were the victims of these negative events. If I do accidentally say something negative or simply neutral, I agree to go have counselling on the
matter so that I will become more sensitive to the group of people that suffered.
Keep in mind that I will not use quotes from The Bible because Atheists might find some of the information offensive. I will not use quotes from the
Talmud that encourage behaviour that is not consistent with Judaism because this might be offensive. I will not quote verses from the Quaran that
encourage behaviour that is not consistent with Islam because this might be offensive.
I will continuously acknowledge the wrongs that my past ancestors perpetrated against non-Christians, non-Whites and non-Heterosexuals. I will not
acknowledge the wrongs that were done and continue to be down to those not belonging to one of the previous categories.
Please keep in mind that it is not my intention to incite violence or hate towards anyone. I do not want to upset or offend anyone else. I think that
my opinions should be taken with a grain of salt because I really do not want to hurt anybody's feelings
Now that I have made that clear, I hope you enjoy the following topic:
In the odd chance my post is seen as offensive to at least ONE other individual, I have decided not to comment on the matter. Thank you for your time
and I hope we can work together to bring more love to this world. For those who do not believe in love, I am sorry for mentioning the noun. This was
NOT a personal attack on those who don't believe in love. I will try to be even more careful in the future.
