I am seeing this more and more everyday. Not only on QJ, but on other websites, school, and just walking down the street. People both religious and non religious constantly bashing eachother for their beliefs. Why do we have to do this? Why waste the energy?
Really , what has come into people lately? We see it all the time, a religious person will fire a comment at a non religious person and then a big brawl will break out, trying their best to bash eachother. I myself am athiest, but my goal in life isn't to turn everybody ELSE into athiests! All the time I see athiests talking about 'How religious people will be the end of the world', when THEY'RE part of the problem themselves! It's not that people ARE religious, it's that people just CAN'T respect eachothers beliefs.
Look at all the crap that has happened just because people are just too stupid to respect one another. The Palistine/Israeli crisis, the holocaust, the Israeli/Lebanon war..it's just silly.
And it's not just with religion, it's with just abouot everything else in the world. Take the 'Consoles' war, for example. I for one like the Xbox 360. And i have been bashed by at least 10 people saying that I should get the Wii and that the 360 has no innovation and that Microsoft sucks. What did I ever do to you, and what do you plan to accomplish by doing this.
This is the only way we can even think of reaching peace with eachother and other countries of the world is that we need to respect eachother's beliefs and respect ourselves. I also used to be like this, but now i see no point to it anymore. It's purely destructive. Everytime some gives me their religious opinion about something I always try to keep an open mind about it.
