The world, does it ignorantly stereotype religion?

IMO, i see both religions being a threat to humanity, both religions have started some major conflicts, gave the ideal that the lighter you are the better you are. Jews and Africans are viewed as the lowest of the low. Those to books, which are said to be the holiest and sacred of things are nothing more than objects tainted by human ideologies and emotions, and not that of the divine.

Remember IMO


This is a quote from another thread I started. It is making reference to the Christian faith and the religion of the Islamic people. It’s absurd and stupid, considering that neither religion ever mentions anything about Africans being lower than anyone in their holy books; moreover, the Christian religion also calls the Jewish people “The first born of God,” and “God’s chosen people,” not suggestion them to be superior, but rather to have a privileged relationship with god.

Romans 2:11 states, “God does not show favoritism,”

1st Peter 2:11-12 says, “Dear friends, I urge, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds…”

And it goes on and on and on and on and on and on in this nature, because the Christian religion, rather a sham or the truth of life, is ultimately founded on the ideal of loving others more than yourself, bringing peace, and spreading the kingdom of God. Yes, I will say there seems to be some prejudice in the old testament (arguably, because its all a touch ambiguous when viewed as a whole,) but the new testament renews that and steps up to say that because of sacrifice and faith this is no longer true, for God loves all his people.

Yet, ignorance has led to an idiotic stereotype that the Christian religion says that blacks are inferior. Any twit of a Christian or atheist, or anyone else, who believes that is nothing more than an ignorant and mislead individual, because nothing the bible says anything about that.

The Islamic religion, although certainly violent towards Jews and other people who do not believe what the Muslims do, does not at all attack people for the number of pigments in their skin. How stupid is that? Do you really believe the Qur’an stops to say, “And Allah hates anyone who does not have this many skin pigments,” no!

This is a false image put into the minds of stupid or ignorant people by the opiates of media, prejudice, and narrow mindedness.

The Jews get it worse than anyone, which is annoying, because they haven't tried to push anything on anyone. They're the most introversive religion I have ever seen or heard of.

Is the world really ignorant to such things? I thought alot of people in this world are sticking to the stereotyping believes and the illusions the various people had created. It would be hard to find one people who do not eblieve in all those stereotyping things and only believeing him or herself~

This is probably the result of conditioned response rather than individual study. People can be taught many things that would be easily disproven given another source of information.

A friend of mine had a boyfriend that had been raised to believe that girls didn't fart. If there was a smell of fart in the car and he was the only male then it was him, no question. And he honestly believed that until he left home and started socializing with girls outside of his family. This is just one of the many things that he believed blindly because he was denied a diverse view of the world.

I'm not sure religion is so special here. The world "ignorantly" stereotypes a lot of things. Our mental representations or schemas on things make our interaction with the world more efficient, but also make us less accurate. It is a double edged sword.

Of course a lot of shit is woefully wrong in terms of what people know about religion, but I would think it would be better to give them the proper information to make their judgments rather than simply dismissing them as absurd or stupid.

BTW, what's with all the religion threads?

^ lol..

It's hard not to stereotype religion when theres so many religious people making it look bad. Not all religious people do this thank God (haha), but I think it gets most of us to subconsciously stereotype them.

I agree with what Trevor says.

Why so many threads?...well it's called communication and ppl can't live without communicating so i'd say what's wrong with talking about religion? it's a topic to talk about thus creates communication, right? truthfully Religion is the most talked about subject anyways.
I find this thread interesting.

Yeah, that about sums it up. Good answer, Trevor.

What? You mean these threads are made by egotistical people who want to boost their self image by using their mouths to stir strife? I’m going to assume so…and yeah, that’s a big reason. The other reason is that I’m sick of idiots who go around insulting people. Here on crunchy roll you’re not allowed to flame or make personal insult, and anyway I’m not going to degrade my arrogant self and get into a little bickering contest. So, I can make my point through heated debate and haughty statements.

First off, LMAO. Second off, still LMAO. Lastly, yes, that’s very true. It goes both ways. Religious people often stereotype atheists and agnostics, even assuming them as one group of people and acting as though they are all just trying to make excuses for their immoral behavior. Having once been atheist myself, I know this is not true.

Yes, some people do, but not all religious people are ignorant. I’m better educated than any atheist I’ve ever met. Most atheists, like most Christians, like most people in general, are ignorant and stupid.

Many people do that. I remember reading a article in my local newspaperfrom an idiotic bigot who claim that Muhammad was Lucifer and Allah was the devil. It scares me to think that they actual published that.

Ehh i wouldn't say your better "educated" than most other people. I've seen you get talked into a corner plenty of times in Christian related threads by various people and not just ones with aethiestic views.

You give yourself too much credit.
