I am sick of seeing this ignorance passed around like its a good thing. It is not.
Religious moderates cherry pick their scriptures.
Religious moderates provide the platform for so called extremists (those that take scripture literally) to stand up on,*Ours is a religion of peace*
They are the shield the nutters hide behind *We're not all like that*.
Moderates accept no responsibility for the actions of their kind abusing, raping and killing in the name of or under the protection of their religion.
The religious patron continues to give money/time/credibility to organizations that continuously abuse and kill women, children, homosexuals and the enemies of their deity.
It is gross disassociation to say "Well that guy was of my religion and did bad shit because of my religion but we're not all like that our religion is great."
I know not every Jesus believer is WBC I know not all Muslims want to blow shit up.
The problem is that the normal people and the crazy people are getting their beliefs and morals from the SAME fucking source, they are worshiping the SAME bloodthirsty god, they will all be together in their afterlife scenario.
Those fucking nuts are your people literally representing your religion and your holy texts. You are them -no matter how liberally you take religion yourself- you are them, they exist because you support the religion and allow it to continue even indoctrinating your own children!
grow up and look at this shit like an adult
