I'm not afraid of religion. Religion itself can`t do anything to anyone. What I`m somewhat more concerned about are the people who latch on to religion.

Hateful, judgmental people are so regardless of whether or not they believe in something. Many religions just so happen to cater to those peoples` desire to be intolerant and falsely elevate themselves above others. Plus it provides a method of validating their behavior; "No, I don`t hate [insert group here] because I`m unhappy and want the world to be too; I hate [insert group here] because GOD hates them!"

I`ve heard many times that religion means something different to every person. Religion means what a person wants it to mean. Therefore, if someone claims that their religion necessitates hating others, the person/people themselves made it that way.

People can and always will be able to find reasons to be judgmental no matter what. To me religion`s enduring popularity is a product of that, not a

The hate generated by one religion isn't somehow more acceptable because another religion is worse.

Yeah, but the christian hate isn`t always in law, it`s just judgemental bigots* acting "on their own".

*I didn`t say ALL christians are bigots so please don`t say I did.

As a general rule, I hate religion. It pisses me off like nothing else can. I hate that it's a subject we`re not allowed to criticize without being shouted down by the politically correct.

Also the point: not being allowed (yet) to get married is FAR less troublesome that being killed by the government for being gay, you can agree on that yes?

If that was the extent of things, you'd be right. However, you overlooked everything else I said--like how I can be fired for being gay, or denied housing, or, depending on the neighborhood, beaten or killed. And that many Christians are actively trying not only to block progress in those areas, but to roll back progress in others.

Do I have it as bad here as I would in some other places? Obviously not. That doesn`t it make it right, or excusable. The hate generated by one religion isn`t somehow more acceptable because another religion is worse.

@airsofter1 Muhammed IS the Prophet, they're the same guy.

"scale isn`t the point" Heck yes it is! Also the point: not being allowed (yet) to get married is FAR less troublesome that being killed by the government for being gay, you can agree on that yes?

And going back 3000 years or 300 years to find atrocities? Not the same as it happening right here, right now! You cannot forgive mistakes made centruies ago, but crimes happening now are OK with you?

"I said that Christianity and Islam are "practically the same religion""
You`re just as wrong as when @Baalthy says the same bull. The Christian God does NOT care which hand you wipe your bum with, case closed.
