Sandi - yes!  LOL

Dallas - cute movie trailor.  I keep wondering, tho - when are they going to make a movie about a boring overweight middle aged hard working guy who bakes an awesome cherry-rhubarb pie?

Agreed. There can be legit criticism about any government. I've got nothing against Chinese people, but damn, China upsets me.

Very true Dallas. Similar to anti-Americanism around the world. I don't know if it is still true but it used to be that most anti-American people would be happy to meet an American and invite us in for tea and talks.  It is America that is hated rather than individual Americans.

I've had to come to terms with the fact that the only way to deal with religion is to deal with it itself, and not the individuals involved. There are good and bad, smart and dumb, caring and callous people of all persusasions, races, nationalities, religions, genders, etc.

 

Our problem with religion should not be about people, but about religion itself, which is a fallacy. A lie. A myth. I despise religion because I despise dishonesty. Because religion presents supposition and guesswork as fact -- truths by which people should live and be judged. And this is wrong. The beliefs of theists are not facts and they cannot withstand scrutiny or be corroborated by common sense and hard evidence.

 

It doesn't matter WHO believes, but WHAT is believed.

VeganTiger, I agree with you, people are nice despite, not because, of religion.  The human mind is amazing in its ability to compartmentalize and sometimes to hold completely contradictory views at the same time.   When I think of the massive ignorance that christians have about the bible, and their hypocrisy, my head wants to explode.

I can't understand why people don't get it. If a person says they are a christian but believe woman should have equal rights, black people shouldn't be slaves and glbt people should have equal rights including marriage rights then that person IS NOT a christian. What's so hard?!?! If someone does not believe the dogma then they are not a christian or jew or muslim or whatever. There MUST be some way to get through to these people! People are nice DESPITE religion NOT because of it. Morality existed before religion and has evolved despite it. Is that a clear enough way to put it or can someone help me out here? I've tried explaining it to some of my glbt friends and they just don't get it because some "xtians" helped them in their transition. I've told them it's not xtians that helped you; it was people helping you despite what their evil book tells them and they are NOT xtian. *AHGHGHAHGHGH!*

Nah, just understand them. Really simple ideas are easy. It's when they have a cogent, original thought, and can make a solid, sane and reasonable argument, now that really throws me, instead the same ole bs and reasons I've always heard.
