...feel the need to beat up on whatever religion/race/sexuality/etc they don't agree with? I'm not whining or anything silly like that...I am asking for an honest answer. I was doing some research on a term that got brought in a conversation, out of curiosity, and found a lot of shit on it. Basically what some people were saying would be the equivalent of me saying to a Christian, "No, you idiot, there is no such thing as a God!" It's their belief, right, and they have the right to believe that, yes?

I'm a bit of an opinionated person, really, but, despite this, I am willing to accept that people might actually have opinions/beliefs differing from mine...now why can't everyone else accept this? Anyone..? Bet you no one can answer :P

Because there's other dicks out there who say so.

They learn from the other and older people, who in turn learn from the ones even older then themselves. It's just something that seems almost like it's bred into humanity.

Different is bad. ;o; Change is bad. ;o;
Or I don't know. They're taught things from an early age and anything that disagrees with the ingrained things they believe to be true is scary and so bad and everyone must agree with you because it makes sense to you because you've never questioned it because you've always known it to be true.

But when what they believe harms a person or group of people, that's not ok. :c There are some beliefs and opinions that are not ok in the culture we live in.

Ah, yes, all very true. I think I tend to empathize too much, I mean, hell, I can find reason to feel bad for Hitler XD

Eh, probably in many cases. But I would never judge someone based on race, sexuality, or religion. In other words...I /try/ to see other's side of the things. I suppose I practice and worship empathy..?
