Sit back and cop it on the chin? Who has the right to insult anyones belief system?
I agree that insulting anyone's religious beliefs is complete stupidity. I don't agree that attacking people who had nothing to do with that insult
Furthermore, Obama insults Christianity daily by his actions over the last four years. Forcing Catholic, Baptist, and other religious institutions to
do something like pay for abortive services, certainly qualifies in that category.
In addition, RIGHT HERE on ATS, this unfortunately happens daily, as members flame anyone that tries to defend Christianity. Just try to post
something of a religious nature, and the haters come out in force. It is the main reason I have cut down my postings here. If you haven't seen some
of the trash that passes as free speech here at ATS, just view some of the threads, and you'll see what I mean. If Christians were as violent as some
of the people we have seen on TV over the last two days, ATS would be burning down.
In fact, after posting this, I went to the only other thread I have on my list right now, and found this comment:
Right, and the majority of Christians are psychopaths and child molesters... Wait, is that NOT true? Based on what I see of the Catholic Church and
families like the Phelps' it must be! And if we look back through centuries of crusades and wars I think I can get together a few thousand examples of
how the Christian faith has caused more death and suffering than any other religion all around the world.
Rather typical of what disgusts me. Blame over 1 billion people because of an admittedly horrible set of acts by a few individuals, compared to the 1
On another note, I don't understand why this thread doesn't have more members participating. This is a very important issue, and the OP posed it in a
very intelligent way. I'm afraid I know the answer already, and it doesn't speak very highly of some here on ATS.
