Anti-Extremism

Inspired by all the violence I've seen from Muslim extremists on the news, and the stupidity I've read from Christian extremists. (Some of my friends will prolly know who I'm talking about...)

The extremes for everything and anything piss me off, and the religious extremists are no exception. While I do consider myself atheist, I do respect other theists, and their choices in beliefs.

...And there are these guys. The ones that make religion look corrupt and a joke. The ones that have committed horrendous crimes. The ones that make me headdesk. :no:

While I do believe extremists exist in all religions, it's mostly reports about the Taliban and activity from groups such as the Westoro Baptist Church that I'm sure a lot of people are aware of. Groups like them make the sane followers of these religions look bad, and that really, really sucks because I know people who aren't like that...

Also, atheist extremists exist too... (yes, I know atheism ain't a religion, but it's still related). You know, those guys who complain about anything with religious undertones? They make me facepalm too. :|

Really? Because I’m a Christian, I’m not starting a crusade, or murdering children.

There are extremists in religions but not all religious people are extremists. I wish some people understood that.

Because they all hold bad ideas. Sure, many of them don't act out of their ideas, but their beliefs are still bad.

I had a run-in with some Christian extremists yesterday. I have nothing against religion itself, but I hate religious extremism.

All religious extremism is bad and they're the reason people are hating religion. This is coming from someone who doesn't have a religion. I don't have one because I hate religion, I actually don't hate religion at all. I just believe I don't need a religion to lead a good life.

Honestly, parents who yell at kids for being gay are the worst extremists I can think of.

My family and myself are Christians but we don’t try to convert others, bash people for being gay, and all the other weird shit bible-thumpers do.

I agree with this even when I'm a muslim. You can only fight for self-defence or disbelievers ( not christains or jews ) forces war.

Heck I even have some non-muslim friends I love them as friends. I don't force my beliefs in them, I think its in the Qur'an that all religions are friends. People often mistake "disbelievers' with "chirstains' thats not the case at ALL
