Oh yes you're right. There will always be people acting like well'... idiots !
Yet, when some just are to stupid to think for themselves, I also believe some for just being mentally challenged.
It is everyone's right to be an idiot, but it just goes to show that our edumacation system nowadays it geared toward group think, not analytical thinking.
I was well... perplexed to read a lot of reply and post with an officious religious influence. To a point I concluded there are people here, believing every single word written in the bible to be literally true.
I didn't expected it. Certainly not on the issues in here.
The acceptance of biblical facts and knowledge is also weird. Expecting a atheist kind of ideology.
I myself believe in a higher power. Just because I think this way, does it mean that I will forgo emperical knowledge or proof? Of course not.
If these believes would be used anywhere else then our evangelical broadcasting tv. It would be slammed down and ridiculed in public.
We are forcing religious believes to be put aside for the right gay people to teach at schools of Christian believe and values.
Christian beliefs (change your believes to beliefs) are just that, beliefs, does not make it true or even believable. One MUST deny ignorance when describing ones own belief system. I am human, I am fallible, if I believe a certain doctrine and certain beliefs are proven false, must not I arrange my views as disengenuous?
I do agree they have a right to be treated equal.
I do also think people have the right to their believes as freedom of religion gives them.
It's disgusting to see certain ideas are purposely sabotaged and ridiculed.
If I don't want t socialise with skinheads, because of what they represent.
it is possible for a skinhead to complain. And I will be forced to do socialise
Because it is exactly the same situation.
We lose the freedom to make our own decisions.
I was under the impression the situation regarding to an oppressed belief system was far worse .
True Christian beliefs are but just a shadow of what they once were. What I am getting at here is the religious doctrine that disallows free thought. Yes as a Christian one must try to frame their thought as the bible or God intended, but God intended us to think, did he not? Organized religion would tell us no! God is IN everyone of us. Even the evil ones that want to subjugate us. We, they, need to see the light that surrounds us.
