Following up on PDF's comment. I'm starting a new thread because the other one has been sufficiently derailed. Cue: People do like to play armchair adjudicator and start pointing out others' flaws. Hell, I do it from time to time. I get others not being pleased with decisions, and taking issue with who is praised as a model for society, but that is no excuse for the hatred that gets blasted most of the time. People acting like there is some line that cannot be uncrossed is amusing. I have a couple of theologians I like. I prefer the ones that keep it simple...Imagine this, or if you are an atheist, play along (and tune your sarcasm meter). Can the God of the Universe institute "salvation" and not take into account the enormity of some people's sins? Of course not. Would he have a salvation that could not possible by applied to a pedophile, for example? Or a murder, or an adulterer? Did God cut them out because he said I came here to redeem only those that were pretty much good, but just need a little bit of redemption because of smaller sins? Of course not. Yet we get Christians saying and doing ignorant things, exactly out of this notion. So, the hate and intolerance breeds hate and intolerance. We are judged by the media based on the loudest and most appalling of our group. Not by the paragons, but the hypocrites. So now, were are in a society where it's okay to "hate" Christians. This isn't the only reason, but it's a big one.
