Are you reading my post?
I expressed my personal thoughts on this subject. Am not allowed to do that?
I never said religion caused this guy to go on a shooting spree. I said religion causes people to hate other people.
Hate is hate. It doesn't matter where it comes from. This guy wasn't religiously motivated, I never said he was. I brought up the example of Gays
in the military just to show how religious groups can come together and spread a message of hate.
My point is, that HATE SUCKS! If we encourage hate in one area, it carries over to another.
Random man has bad day at work. Comes home and beats his wife.
Guy gets mad at his mom. Goes to a school and kills kids.
Teach you child to hate one thing, and it'll start hating other things as well. My point is that religious groups need to NOT spread messages of
hate. It wouldn't have prevented this tragedy, as I"ve said, I'm smart enough to know it's NOT the problem. But having our religious leaders
encouraging us to love one thing, but hate another DOESN"T HELP SOCIETY..
You'll have to quote me where I said this is totally the fault of religion, or where I singled out Christians, and how is anything I'm saying
intolerant? Like really, are you offended because your Christian? That's too bad, because I never BLAMED CHRISTIANITY!
I'm not saying all religious groups are spreading messages hate either. But there are a lot.
Why can't you understand that all I'm saying is ...
HATE IS A TERRIBLE THING AND WE NEED TO PREVENT GROUPS FROM SPREADING MESSAGES OF HATE[/SIZE]
That will help society. It won't solve every problem there is, but at least it will help to keep THOSE OF US WHO ARE INFLUENCED by these groups from
spreading their message of hate and possibly preventing someone from acting out on it....
So I'm terribly sorry you're too intolerant of me to see what I'm trying to say
