Just an example: Christianity is a blood soaked religion. Historically Countless numbers have been persecuted, tortured and killed in the name of Christianity. Or did we forget the crusades ? Among other things. That doesnt mean theres anything wrong with Christianity as a religion or its followers. It depends on what people choose do in the name of god I suppose.
I used to volunteer with a refugee resettlement agency. Tucson gets over 1,000 legal refugees each year, from all over the world. By far, the most difficult to deal with are those from the Middle East, especially Irag. By nature, they are volatile and very distrusting. They don't trust anyone - not even their own relatives. They always think someone is out to get them. They get offended and angry very easily and quickly. A lot of volunteers simply refused to work with them. Folks from any other place on earth are easier to deal with.
Blackcat my good friend,
Bringing up the "crusades" from the 11th century as an argument that Christianity is some sort of "blood thirsty" religion makes you look stupid. Don't look stupid.

Im not saying Christianity is blood thirsty. I cant really think of any such thing with Christianity or Christians now. No problem with either one.
My entire family, relatives, and most of my friends are Christian/Catholic. Im speaking of historically... Are we saying people werent killed in the past for not being Christian (or other religions) or for speaking out against a religion ?
Ill apologize of ive stepped on some toes. Im mildly aware that I probably push peoples buttons (or at least I think I do) especially when it comes to contravercial topics. Its not intentional im not even completely aware of it (more like a feeling)
It seems like I have a talent for insulting people every time I speak although I dont intend to.
I was actaully discussing this with my family a few days ago... My small circle of friends in real life get pissed off at me on a regular (daily) basis for things I say. For some reason I can never see understand the reason why. Sometimes it just randomly comes too me years later and I think "da*n... I understand now"
- I dont care what people think of me
- I generally like people whether I agree with them or not and feel horrible that I push buttons or generally aggravate people.
- I never let go or forgive my own transgressions (once I recognize them)
That being said... I should really learn to avoid the controversial topics lol.
Also im out of my mind with this cold thats been flooring my family for about two weeks. The room is spinning, and im drinking.
So I will step out of these threads till my head is clear and try to avoid them in the future.
Tonight im going to see if I can sleep.
As the brothers say in the ATL, "its all good".
Listen and you will learn my son.
