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.
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.
