Religion is a plague.
This is meant to be a serious thread, do you like 'em hate 'em or have no opinion on them ? Are you one , do you know one ?
Just curious... would like to hear what peoples views are. Since ive been studing thier religion some from books ive gotten from the library.. I would like to hear what you all think
Religion is a plague.
I know two Muslims; one's a huuuuge pothead, and the other is in medical school at the moment.
I'm kind of dating one. ^_^
We're not that serious, or anything, but we've gone out a couple of times. He's lovely.
his parents are awfully rude though.
@Matt~ assuming your male, due to profile setting, I see why his parents would be upset as being Gay is not generally accepted in the muslim faith from what I have read...
I like 'em, like everyone else that isn't a douche.
Religion shouldn't be a barrier to relationships and society as long as we're all understanding and welcoming of those not like our own. Diversity is the future, we would still be clubbing prey-animals with rocks and paddling boats across the ocean with our hands without learning and loving other cultures/religions.
But back to your topic on Muslims; they get a bad rap and negative stereotype from the media, unfortunately a lot of citizens are dependent on what they tell us. But those 'extremist' Muslims are just a tiny fraction of Islam and have gravely misinterpreted their religion's teachings. Hence the higher ups of Islam and I'd say the majority of Muslims denounce them. Their religion is actually very respectable, very clean, and friendly.
The 'terrorists' you hear about on the news are just like white supremacists - just a small crazy offshoot of Christians and Catholics. But because most of us are living in the Western world, that news goes unreported to keep things in the status quo. Just like on the other side of the world, news of white supremacists gets blown up. It's sad, because this is how people gain negative perceptions of others and perpetuates the hate.
Oh, and I'm not one, but I've grown up with many, had numerous co-workers of, classmates, and friends too. They're common here in Canada.

ah okay lol, wait until they ummmm find out ? if he comes out ? that could be like a bottle of hot sauce if you know what i mean ?
I really don't know what you mean, LOL.
And if they do, or when they do, it's not going to matter really, we're both over 18 and can make our own decisions, haha.
