If someone can't respect my faith without attacking it then I just ask that they simply leave it alone. Thanks. ---KirbyI often hear people calling criticism or ridicule attacks. This worries me. To me, it sounds like some people equate criticism (especially of religion) with violence. I couldn't disagree more. Criticism is not violent and it's not attacks. If it were the case then I'd be the persecuted one, because I bet I get far more criticism than most christians do. However, I don't concider it as attacks and I don't think that I have ever been persecuted (yet).
Also, why is criticizing religion such a taboo? The fact that so many are offended by simple questions, makes me dislike religion even more. To me, it seems that it's all superstition. Don't disagree, no matter how ridiculous our doctrines are, or something bad will happen.
