Subject: Honestly I don't hate religious people
In reply to: Johnny 's message, "I was trying hard to stay out of this but the hate comments are back" on 17:12:18 10/11/17 Wed

What I protest is the hypocrisy some of them show on this issue. If you're going to use something as an excuse to justify your behaviour, then ignore the parts of that same thing that don't suit your existing biases, then I'm not going to accept that as a valid argument. And that's true in and out of religion. The fact that the small minority of religious people who preach gay hate is a loud minority and almost the only way the religious community is represented doesn't help.

I agree with you that there are far more people out there who are gay friendly, but I think that what needs to change is that the gay friendly people, especially in religion, need to be more vocal about it and help change the perception that religion is the enemy of gays. And all of us need to work together to achieve that.

And to be honest, I wouldn't really care if religious people hated us, if they were consistent in rejecting and condemning all the other sins found in the bible. But they're not, and that's my problem, not that they believe in God.

  • Johnny, I think you might have taken an honest frustration with the religious right cherry-picking the rules that they follow, for an anti-religion conversation/rant. -- PeteIM, 05:33:55 10/14/17 Sat
