Oh my fucking
higher being (possibly)! Can we have one damn post about American religion and politics without it devolving into a chaos of finger pointing and name calling?! Here, I'll settle this right now - SOME PEOPLE ARE ASSHOLES
Bam! Done! Nothing is going to change the past. NOTHING. What any one person or group of people did, they did. Admitting it or deflecting it isn't going to change the reality. The only
thing we can change, and what should be the most important right now, is the present and the future. Human nature is violent. This is a fact. There are violent assholes out there right now. Is everyone an asshole? No. They have the potential to be, but that doesn't make them so.
Is religion the cause of their assholiness? (ha!) Maybe. Doesn't matter, I feel. Human behavior trumps (dammit!) whatever their views are. I mean, does it really matter? Muslim (Islamic) or Christian, Hindu or Buddhist, we're still human
. Whether setting yourself on fire, blowing up a bus in the Gaza Strip, or throwing another human being off a tall being for allegedly being 'gay', the actual reason is irrelevant. Your behavior is point.
Once we get that through everyone's heads, we step beyond this madness.
