Christianity is one big hate group, The Catholic Church is over run with child molesters, Wicca is just a bunch of witches casting evil spells and speaking to evil spirits, Satanist go around making human and animal sacrifices to the devil, Atheist are bad people who have an agenda set on destroying God.
We have all heard one or more of these statements at one time or another throughout our lives as we go about our daily business. Some people may agree with one or more of these statements, some may disagree, Some are aggressive in these points, while others just want left alone in their own personal beliefs without getting involved in a bunch of drama. Bottom line though, almost everyone of us is judged according to one or more of these belief systems. and it's not just by believers of these systems either. Even society as a whole judges people according to these belief systems even though they themselves do not believe in the competing system.
And that is not even the complete picture here, even though the homosexual gender is not a belief system, those who are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender also are judged. Surely you have heard the old warning that gay people will stalk children for the purpose of molesting them.
Even with the homosexual gender added into the mix, this is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. One could go on and on with all the judgment issues that plague this old world.
The christian religion at this time takes up a huge chunk of the spotlight in all of this because they are so diverse in beliefs that you could probably fill a book with just the names of the different beliefs and sects that exist today, and the christian religion is the biggest offender in judging others according to non christian beliefs.
You have religious christian denominations, non religious christian sects, free believers, free thinkers, house church, relational church, and the list goes on with each one arguing with all the others about just who is following God properly. and when they are not doing that, they still find time to judge all those involved in the previously mentioned belief systems, and gender.
So what is the solution to all this judgment? how can we as a world come together and stop judging each other?
Do we create a single belief system and require every man woman and child to follow that one belief system, do we outlaw religion of all kinds all together allowing only scientific belief, Do we outlaw belief all together and just allow our governments to dictate to us what should be and should not be?
All of these choices would make one or more happy while making all the rest unhappy, and in the end you would still have rebellion, war, judgment, and all the negative situations that we have now.
Ok, so what can we do?
Maybe we could start trying to understand others belief systems, gender, and lives before we start trying to make judgment on them.
Child molestation is not a catholic problem alone even though the catholic church is the one most often in the media spotlight for this offense, most Catholic's are good people who would never harm a child. Child molestation is a problem that affects all religions, communities, and countries the world over.
Hate groups are not just a christian phenomena, hate groups are part of every religion, political persuasion, and nationality. Most people in this world would have nothing to do with a hate group, the hate groups just get the spotlight the most because they are what sells stories.
Wicca is not a bunch of witches casting spells, and talking to evil spirits. Those involved in Wicca are for the most part good people who want the same thing everyone wants, to live in peace, to follow what they believe in their heart, to make an honest living, and to get along.
Satanist get the worst rap of them all. Satanist are not evil people following the devil, and making blood sacrifices of innocent animals and people to the evil demon leader of the bible. Satanist live, and work right next to you every day. they interact with you every day, your best friend unknown to you could be a satanist and you don't even know it.
Guaranteed, someone you know, love and respect, someone that you consider to be the most wonderful person who ever lived could be a satanist. Does that person cease to be good, or to be your friend just because you find out that they are a satanist? Just like the Wicca, the Christian, the G.L.B.T., the Free Thinker; the Satanist wants what everyone wants. To live, to love, to get along, to not be judged, and to not be caught up in judging others.
Homosexuals are not child molesters. As a mater of fact, homosexuals are the least likely person to molest a child of anyone. Homosexuality is not even about sex, with a child or a consenting adult. Homosexuality is about a natural attraction to someone of the same sexual gender and of legal consent. Homosexuals want what we all want. A family, a job, a happy life, and equal rights under the law. There is no homosexual agenda any more than there is a christian agenda, atheist agenda, satanist agenda, or any other agenda.
So your a free thinker and religious life is not your way, don't just assume that because someone else is a religious follower that they are a fanatic or superstitious. Try to understand their position, and just live your position as you see fit as a good example for them and others to see, live it with pride and without fear or regret. Love the person for who they are not what they are.
Don't judge your friend or co worker because you found out he or she is a satanist, you liked them when you didn't know they were satanist, why shouldn't you continue liking them once you know they are satanist. That person didn't suddenly change, transform, morph into some sort of monster because you found out what they are, that person is still the same person you always knew. you just know something more about them now. don't judge it. learn from it, understand it.
Understanding and learning about someones belief system or gender does not mean you are obligated to partake of it, it just means you are making an honest effort to get along with someone. Which is how it should be.
