I am a religionophobe, but I don't hate religious people.

People who use fairy tales as justification for hate, cruelty or death upon others, are pretty crazy and morally bankrupt IMHO, no matter what brand of religious crap they subscribe to.

Any social animal from bumble bees to humans, has the problem of trying to reconcile two perceived realities: the perceived reality that they from sensing and processing natural phenomena, and the perceived social reality of their group, tribe or hive.

What we can infer is that all religions are potentially addictive agents. Like all addictive agents [such as psycho-active drugs], individual response is variable. But basically, any addictive agent can mess with the pleasure/goal/reward centres of the brain, causing changes which can compromise morality and cognition. The brain is a heuristic computer after all. Addiction tends to substitute long term goals with sort term goals, ie, getting the next 'fix". For an alcoholic, one drink is never enough. But not everyone who has a beer or a glass of wine will turn into an alcoholic.

Of course, one can get religious apologists claiming that "Islamic terrorists" [same-same for all religions] are not "True Muslims", thus making a "No True Scotsman" fallacy. Partly because there is no reliable link between religion-ism and violent radicalism. Indeed, a dose of more moderate religious teaching can sometimes moderate radicalism, but that isn't a reliable solution either. Perhaps because it is a little more successful than giving an alcoholic a drink, people think it is an effective way to combat "religious" terrorism.

Probably more effective is more education, giving people a much more diverse intellectual base to work from. Knowledge of all religions, scientific literacy and so on, would seem to be a better way of promoting tolerance and understanding between peoples.

Religion is a type of self-medication, and like all attempts to self-medicate, has the potential for side effects to occur, not least the possibility of addiction. Most religions appeal by selling the false idea that humans are imperfect [true], but guilty and responsible for their imperfections, and only through salvation via a deity, or via some special way of living [Buddhists], can they achieve peace and harmony.
HTH.

When you masturbate to images of arabs, do you scream out curses?

Jesus seems to hate some things. Do you? Is hate good?
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Jesus seems to be saying that he is promoting division and war with a number of his sayings that pit father against son and brother against brother.
Jesus advocated division, war and hate; even as some think he preached to love our enemies.
Did Jesus hate and is hate thus a good character trait?

It depends on whether one likes historical novels. But frankly m'dear, I don't give a damn.

I try and I try not to hate. Sometimes, though, I hate you.

"Colony" to me means  all the rabbits have access to each other in a much larger pen than the traditional small pens.  Google mother Earth news Rabbit colony for an article that describes what I'm talking about.   I'm trying to have that set up but combine it with the goat pen so the whole thing moves across the pasture.  It's a bit challenging and I may not succeed.

Why bother, y'all?  ---the deluded will inherit the Earth, they always have.  :sadcheer:  :stareicide:
Regardless, it's amusing to goad the twit right now. Just to see how foolish he can make himself.

No offence intended cobber, but maybe you need a life! :-)
Perhaps, but I like laughing at Bluffy.
And it is my life.
Is your commenting on my enjoyment of laughing at Bluffy any more socially admirable?
Nah. A pointless comment by moi. As to bluffy, I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Well, you can claim it is your life, but can you prove it? :-)

I am an Islamophobe. If you are not, you might not be a moral person.

Some Muslims follow an ideology, as written in their religious writing, which allows slavery of Muslim women. This sect of Islam allows the sale of child brides to others within their cult. These people want a Caliphate that promotes and uses slavery. 

The Muslim men in this slave holding cult have submitted to Allah and are eager slaves to him thanks to the pleasant heavenly gifts he promises. They believe themselves to be favored by God and hate all those who are not.    

History of religion, especially Christianity, shows that when a belief is strong, even if miss-guided, ends all compromise within the believer. Thus is born Inquisitions, Jihads, Honor killing and murder of non-believers and apostates.
 
The assumptions that these people make of God, without any proof and based on the supernatural and the writings of imperfect men, become so arrogant, that they act as slave traders based on their beliefs without regard for moral and ethical standards. They in fact break their own reciprocity rules.

These Muslims allow this theological certainty to create a tyrannical cult of slaved men who then make second class slaves out of their female children. Naming these Muslim women and girl's chattel would be an understatement. They are truly slaves, as Allah demands.
 
These Muslims imitate their slave holding master, Allah, and like all tyrants, hate all others not of their ilk. They allow their hate to push them to violence against the free people in the free world.

Islamophobia is a fear of Islam. Those who do not fear and hate this slave holding cult of Islam, along with the other inhuman and immoral policies that Islam and Sharia allow, are not moral people. Moral people will fight against slavery.

I fear that free people will not be Islamophobic enough, because of their fear of being labelled racist or Islamophobe, to rise up and give secours to the unwilling female slave of Islam.

I am proudly an Islamophobe. If you are not you might not be a moral person.

Are you a moral person?
