What's the problem?

Reader comment on item: Hating Valentine's Day

Submitted by Neill Wylie (United States), Feb 14, 2007 at 14:18

Why would people be so intolerant as to destroy peoples best wishes to each other?
The fact that people would be so uncivilly spiteful as to go as far as beating people who only want to state their love for each other, shows that the world still lives in a dark and primitive age. To me this mirrors in some ways, the plight of the dark skinned Americans who were shunned for so long and who were made to feel less than human by a racist and non understanding society. The message that I'm receiving from these people is an "If you are not one of us, you're an enemy" mentality.

I'm so glad that I live in a society where everyone has their say (even if I strongly disagree with it). All sides must be listened to and considered for a peaceful society to prevail. This ignorance and violent refusal to accept any other society is where the worlds problems arise. There is beauty in every culture and there are lessons to be learned from all trains of belief.
This is written by a person whose hobbies are Cagefighting and who is in a relationship with a Muslim.
Thank you for reading.
