Insulting & attacking belief doesn't work.

RE: Insulting & attacking belief doesn't work.
The truth to both sides is that the extremist and loudest shouters are the ones that get recognized and remembered and the moderates who really couldn't give a fuck aren't even considered.

I didn't say your wife's beliefs were anything to be proud of, nor were the harmful manifestations of any religion from any believer anything to excuse. It doesn't make them an automatic asshole either. Mostly because some people have been brought up to believe a certain way without even questioning it.

There's a guy I know who's pretty deep into his church and what it does and supports creationism and all that other crap. He's not an asshole. In fact, he's one of the kindest people I know. Despite the rather asshole ways of many people in both of my temples, I never assumed that all Germans were assholes either, even if they let Nazi stuff slide. I don't even think many people who ID as Republicans are assholes.

Does being Christian necessarily make any sort of blood atonement more evil than when the pagans practiced it?
