I've found a very interesting article that might help the people on here understand a bit better, and maybe, just maybe, dislike a bit less.

@Mayana I think any problem with religion these days is a sheer lack of the ability of most people to tolerate other people's ideas, opinions, beliefs and comprehension.

5 years ago, the 'viral' thing was all about being able to tolerate others. Now we are walking on eggs to ensure we are not offending someone.

Minorities Rule. Majority pays.

@Outernaut
Bingo, we need to be able to strongly disagree while still being agreeable. Opposing my view does not make you a bad person. We need to make good arguments against the BEST construction of the opposing view. Building a strawman in order to blow over the opposing argument is weak and intellectually bankrupt.
@Mayana

@Phaazer1 @Outernaut Very well put! Although, I'm not optimistic enough to think that we'll ever get more than just a few people who think and act like that. But we can do our best.
