Need for Tolerance

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 17, 2012, 3:43 PM




From Reddit:

(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)


why can't people be tolerant and logical?

Yeah, those people are true cristians. Threatening to kill someone, their God must be so proud of them (And they are telling ME that I'll go to hell, which I dont even believe in.....)

Just let people believe what they want to believe in. If you want to be an Atheist go ahead. If you want to be Catholic go ahead, its what YOU believe in. It's stupid for people to judge you by your own beliefs.

People need to understand that the followers of any religion are human. We all make mistakes.
I consider myself christian and can't stand it when people point out mistakes I've made that are talked about in bible I shouldn't have done.

Or when they generalize all Christians into one big group as hypocritical evil monsters that are the cause of everything wrong in the world. When people do that they are being very disrespectful and ignorant of the people are actually doing good things in the world.

Its so easy to persecute one group to use as a scapegoat for another group. It's the same principle as racism. Racists blame/execute/torture particular groups out of ignorance. There is no basis in their belief. It's very illogical. Don't let a few bad apples spoil the bunch, i.e let a handle of people who call themselves of a certain religion(that is rooted in peace and understanding but do the opposite) influence your opinion of other people in that belief system.

There is some confusion between someone helping out their fellow man in the Christian way(as the bible speaks about) and just being evil and unusual with your advice. The meanings between the two are being forever switched with each other when they shouldn't be.

Christianity is supposed to about LOVE and TOLERANCE. Man, what's up with these people?

The world is fucked up. And, as you have shown here, religion is basically the main problem. Almost every religion has people in it that are not tolerant and will do everything they can to "kill or convert" (a line from the "Chronicles of Riddick") Until those people stop, the world will not be at peace.

And on another picture we have religion speaks of peace etc stuffs.

Even when someone gets a Ph.D that doesn't mean they know enough.

Same with religion, don't judge if you know a little, and just one religion? Come on.

We have nobel prize winners too for you to debate, don't go arguing not debating with people who are moderate.

If you are right, bring it on, be brave that you are right. Debate wisely.

There are many debates, but I'm quite sure many Atheist ignorantly think they have knew enough.
No, in this life, we will feel the need to learn more even after learning so much.
We will feel proud when we know so little.
That's normal.

Also, when arguing, please don't change the topics drastically, that really show that you didn't do enough research for yourself to understand. ;)

"Learn from an Atheist the right way they learn it, learn about religion the right way they learn it".
By guidance from someone that is very good at it.

I really love how you look at all that, completely disregard all of it, then you start going on about how wonderful religion is. Tell me how much your church is doing for all of the starving people in Africa, please go on about how loving your bigoted belief system is. Please do, I'm looking forward to it.

Okay, there needs to be some SERIOUS explanation for this stuff, and I'll be the one to talk.

NO TRUE RELIGION OF GOD ALLOWS THESE ATROCITIES IN THIS WORLD!

If somebody is gay, YOU RESPECT THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE! This is what ISLAM teaches, and this is what CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM ALSO should teach!

If somebody is lesbian, YOU RESPECT THEM MORE BECAUSE THEY ARE WOMEN!

What these religious EXTREMISTS are doing is 100% WRONG, INVALID.

This is the MEDIA, making religions look BAD!

There is NO SUCH THING as Honour-Killing in Islam, NO such thing as executing people for their beliefs, no such thing as killing innocent people, no such thing as stoning, no such thing as raping, no such thing, NO SUCH THING! And I'm 100% sure Christianity or Judaism does not allow this as well.

I agree with the owner of this submission, THIS WORLD NEEDS TOLERANCE! And WE TRUE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, and ATHEISTS need to UNITE and DEFEAT THE CORRUPTION IN THIS WORLD!

Form the brotherhood, form the sisterhood, we are HUMANS, we are ONE.
