I received an invitation to the JW memorial in the mail today from my mother and I get one every year, even though my mother knows full well that I am an Atheist. It used to bother me that she would send me these invitations each year but I have mellowed over the years and try to take the good wishes and love included in these handwritten letters and ignore the delusional invitation. This is a great video that helps me remember that just because people need a religious crutch it doesn't mean that they are bad people. Now if they use that delusional religious belief to foment hatred and violence towards others then I have no patience.
wow, that was really well answered by Matt and the co-host.
The problem with the so called “benign” believer, is that they propagate the religion to countless descendants, many of which use it to foment hate and violence.
Therefore there’s no such thing as a benign believer….
It is a slippery slope and there will always be those people who will take advantage of the delusional beliefs of others. Good people do bad things and the reverse is also true, I do my best not to beat up on the handicapped and I try to remain a positive outlook that tries not to fall into hatred.
Turning the other cheek whenever possible, even if Xstians rarely do the same.
