When a person professes to be a champion against injustice and bigotry, then I expect them to champion it against all examples of such crimes, and not to ecxlude themselvef when measured against the same.
I know her comments were done in pun,but that does not excuse the fact that she dissed something that others hold very dear and their belief that a god made flesh gave himself up to show others that heaven was attainiable and that their god did indeed hear their cry for a sign of his existence.
Like I said, I can get bashed for a lot of things, but I never stomp on someones faith. You can believe that the martians talk to you thru your blender, and I would only applaude your ability to hear them over the whirrrr.
I dunno. I believe you can ask questions on any religion and ask why things are like this or that and what they believe. Looking at the religion is different than vilifying the actual people.
Well, take Christianity strictly at face value and the whole crusades was about killing.
If you can't have a discussion about a religion, strictly has an outsider may see it, I personally feel you can't be that faithful. I would think those would welcome the outsider looking at things, asking questions. I would think it would be that window of opportunity to explain WHY things are that way.
I grew up in an absolutely Catholic environment -- Catholic school and all. Never did understand why Catholicism taught their followers to vilify those who had religions where they had idols and how wrong that is b/c it wasn't in their way -- yet each Easter we had to do the Stations of the Cross to a whole bunch of statutes or a whole procession and give flowers to Mary and idolizing her and statutes were everywhere in the Church with candles before them.
Never did get a straight answer on that one.
