It disturbs but so does a lot of this in practice where there is no respect
for someone who thinks differently and doesn't necessarily agree with you

ash--sad that bigotry crosses all lines, even among the educated.  Good for you for speaking up, and for defending your beliefs!

FYS, it is good to read all these enlightened comments and know that the...
ignorance, though wide-spread, is not shared by many..it does give the world the wrong impression of what we stand for..I have started believing that our silence is being mistaken for our condoning such ignorant mind-set, and have decided to let them know that as & when appropriate..recently, after hearing such dribble for years from an otherwise very good long-time friend, I let him know in no uncertain terms that it was "ignorant, racist & elitist" to be holding such views, especially by an ivy league graduate, let alone the common man on the street..he is still reeling from my attack but is slowly coming to terms with the fact that being judgmental, especially based on ignorance / lack of correct understanding, is irrational..I commend you and others for speaking out, bless, Ash

Solution = We'll send chicken instead!

Seriously though, that is disturbing. To withhold aid and supplies, simply because they have a different belief system--that's beyond insane.

Words of the ignorant, sentiments of the cruel hearted.

Re: FineYoungSinger - it is indicative of the general ignorance of most people
gome---right on.  And their lack of comprehension is driving them to behave contrary to their own beliefs, which makes me wonder how well they really understand their own faith.  How well does a person that not only doesn't comprehend the belief systems of others, but then in turn judges them for it, really understand their own beliefs?  Perhaps the participants of the conversation I posted (as well as anyone that might agree with them) should spend a little more time considering the fundamentals of their own faith, and determine where their thinking might be going wrong.

That's pretty surreal...
The dialogue is almost as if P.G. Wodehouse created these characters, had he written about Middle American rednecks.

Re:
Moon--hahahaha  but you're right.  It's a form of ignorance.  To be so concerned with what others believe to the point that you'll withhold charity based on it is definitely a form of ignorance.

Re:
sam---it's very startling.  It's also not the first time I've heard this kind of conversation.

FineYoungSinger - it is indicative of the general ignorance of most people

pertaining to the beliefs of others.

In this case, they are likening the sacred cow tradition to deity/omnipotent being worship, without fully comprehending the differences. The closest parrallel I can think of to the practicality based sacred cow tradition, is the reverence with which the Inuit hold the narwhal (whale).

Not all people who attend church or profess to a religion are awake. The world is given to all, we must care for and love each other. The conversation is proof for me that people are seriously ill and are so unaware.  sam
