I don't ridicule all people of faith only those that don't understand their beliefs are exactly that, their beliefs and not everybody else. I ridicule those that would try and impose their beliefs on everybody else. Those who are so ego-centric that they can't accept or understand that others have the right to live by their own beliefs. Those who act like they are in on a little secret, that they have some knowledge that we mere non-believers don't have, without any evidence to support that religious belief.<quoted text>
Well lets see. Based on this and other threads I have been on the ones that are ridiculing people for any type of belief system are the atheists.
Beside as I said people may look, some may even point but there is no way to know what religion they belong to and that is with no regard to the fact that the Anish are Christians. So the pointing would have nothing to do with a beklief system but more in a manner of dress.
As I said I have been there and saw very few people acting in a rude manner and those that were I have no way of knowing what religious flavor they were if they had a flavor.
Actually the majority of the inappropriate beahior I saw was amoung the 18 to 25 year age group. Ab estimation on the age but the younger people the product of the newer secular school system in the US.
Oh and please spare me that those mocking the Amish are the result of taking "God" out of school. I spent 8 years in Catholic school and all that religious indoctrination didn't stop Catholic teenagers from poking fun at others
Teenagers have been mocking others for ages......
