WAKE UP EXTREMISTS

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: HIS HOLYNESS DID NOT INTEND TO PROMPT ANGER BUT TO ENCOURAGE DISCUSSION

Submitted by Rie (United Kingdom), Oct 2, 2006 at 22:15

I wa born and brought up within a catholic family, but my religion is Christianity. I believe in one GOD and to me it dosn't matter what you call him, because I truelieve in one GOD. But I do not believe in every word that comes out of the word off man, no matter who or what they they thinl they are. To me GOD is GOD and for the pope to come away with quote from whenever, well everyone and his dog can do that.

The difference is, do we take it seriously?

As a Christian I was extremely upset by the play that was hosted arournd GB that depicted Christ as a BISEXUAL and I supported peaceful demo's, but would not have gone further as one Sin / WRONG being avenged does create Righteousness. It is about respect for peoples individuality. And about the moral beleif that individuals have the right to beleive in and follow whatever religion they wish s too so long as they harm no one else . They can attempt to to educate others but only in a passive way.

After all humans only conform willingly to something they tottally believe in not to something they are forced to accept.

WAKE UP EXTREMISTS, YOU MAY MURDER US BUT YOU CANNOT FORCE US TO BELIEVE SOMETHING JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY SO.
