i don't see why it's so fashionable to hate religion. i don't understand why people often confuse myth with fact and think that all religious people are gay bashing, intolerant, republican, etc. i can admit i've been offended when i've seen hate videos made by people who hate religion. they say there is no god, stuff like that. it's not that they don't believe that bothers me but that they hate. hate is never acceptable.
if you're an atheist that's ok, it doesn't matter to me, everyone has their right to their beliefs or what have you. what i find difficult to believe (and i know this is going to be debated) is that i'm one of a few religious people who is probably more accepting than some athiests (when i mean some, i mean a few hardcore atheists on youtube). what i'm saying is that if i'm not hating you, then why do you hate me. i do not shove my beliefs down your throat, i don't convert people, i don't fund anti-gay events, i don't agree with "In God we trust" on the money or in the pledge.
i'll go into an alternate tanjent here. then there are the few who for some reason think that my whole religion is based on the text the "Holy Bible". i'm probably one of the few who even says the Bible is incomplete, and that it may very well have been edited at some points, and that my King James Version is a inaccurate translation (mainly because of a few words). anyway these few people think that people like me believe in the Bible itself. pretty funny though. :) you can't believe in a text, you believe in the God figure.
anyway another thing this time not about me or religions closely tied into mine. if some hardcore atheists are so determined that religions are wrong then say Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, etc. are wrong. that's the one flaw i find with the hardcore athiest youtube people. they seem to exclusivley pick on Christianity. i'm saying that you should be mad at Fundamentalist Christianity, not Christianity althogether. not that i'm Christian (i'm Catholic). i know this seems like hate against all atheists. but i'm only against the hate some hardcore atheists have.
i accept atheism i don't accept hate by those few (radicals i could call them, who don't represent the atheist majority) who openly mock religions just because they feel like it, and because everything that comes from their mouths has to be the only truth (self righteousness). well what are your opinions? let me know what you think of my rant. i hope i didn't offend anyone, because i really tried to get the point across that, for example "Radical" (Fundamentalist) Christians (who don't represent the Christian majority), there are "Radical" Atheists (who don't represent the atheist majority). comments are more than welcome.
