Buddhism teaches that no one is "horrible", just ignorant. Which is not their fault to begin with.
Awh, that is pretty sad that people do such things as this. Imagine just having lost someone and then having a group of people saying it was their fault, etc, it would be horrible.However, I also see it from the viewpoint that many people are very strong in their beliefs and will not back down from them for much. While as a buddhist practicer, I see the world one way... and as a hardcore christian follower, they see the world another way. Just as I practice compassion, they seem to practice damnation... I agree that from my viewpoint it is wrong, but from their viewpoint they are doing what they should be doing. That does not justify it for myself, nor for other people, but it's simply a differing in lifestyle. I can point at it and call it wrong, just as they can point at me and call what I am doing wrong because I do not follow jesus.
Good point!But this, they could not protest at the funerals of dead soldiers and make offensive signs!Jason
The funny thing is... these guys are TRUE Christians.
The funny thing is... these guys are TRUE Christians. They know their Bible inside and out and they know what it preaches.
The question to ask now is: Why? And not "because they are idiots", which one could make a pretty good argument about that btw, but the very root cause of why. In other words, not because "they are stupid" or "they are horrible", but rather, why are they this way to begin with? The fundamental root cause.
The funny thing is... these guys are TRUE Christians. They know their Bible inside and out and they know what it preaches.No, they know what they've cherry-picked to believe from the Bible, just like everyone else.Honestly I hate giving them any attention.
