does the world hate me? Are you kidding?

I am a white middle class, middle aged american male. I am honored to be part of one of the most hated groups of people in the world. Kinda wish wish I met some of these people though. I have people that will kill my kids because of me and I didnt do a thing. Well, I did get a few speeding tickets in my day.

I've found that many of the people who proclaim that the world hates them use the scriptures as a handy excuse. "The world hates me because I'm a Christian." Wrong.

If you're feeling hated it's because you use your religion as an excuse to discriminate, treat women and minorities as second class citizens, tell people their religious beliefs are wrong, want special treatment, declare your values to be superior to everyone else's, think God needs your help in judging people and (most important) you don't actually do what Jesus told us to do.

This is what I meant to say but was not able to put it into words the way you did. Brilliantly and truthfully expressed.

lol.....look at the atheist crowd falling all over themselves on the religion board trying to explain morality, and ultimately when they run out of answers.....they just tell me I'm stupid. I'm well-aware of the fact they hate me.
