Don't be an extremist D: by ChikitaWolf Don't be an extremist D: by ChikitaWolf
:note: Sorry to a few of my not-so-stamp-inclined watchers :XD: I realize I've been on a bit of rant with stamps lately, haha. This should be the last though for a while, I would think!

< rant >

Because it's just plain rude and obnoxious.

It goes both ways, of course. There's extremists and hate on both sides -- the religious and not religious. But really, it's extremely tiresome to find a nice piece of art with the topic of religion or no only to find someone attacking other commenters about their beliefs.

For instance: A person comments on a piece of art with religion as it's topic. They mention their beliefs, the creator responds, and they're having a convo about the religion or lack of. Then a new commentor leeches off and starts attacking one of them for what they believe in or not believe in, accusing them of things and just being outright obnoxious.

tl;dr: It's one thing to voice your opinion; it's another to be a complete ass about it.

< / rant >

Inspired by comments on my last stamp and what I've seen in the comments from recent religion / anti religion art works :V

C'mon people. Religious folk and non religious folk can get along. It's not that hard :'D If I, a sixteen year old Christian, can do it with my various wonderful friends of many beliefs or lack thereof, I'm sure the rest of ya'll can :XD:

EDIT: I realize that the stamp itself is rather broad, which is why I tried to be more specific in the artist's comments. There still seems to be some misunderstanding though, so I'll try to clear it up here.
I'm not saying that I discourage confronting people. I'm merely saying that I don't support outright attacking people. You're not going to win someone over by bursting in guns blazing and spitting out nasty things at them. All you're gonna do is make them think you're an ass. However, confronting a person in a civil manner is more likely to get them to listen to you.

EDIT2: I was wondering why I was getting constant faving, only to find that this stamp has gotten onto the second page of 24 hours :XD: Thanks! <3 [edit3: Thanks for front page on "deviantART related" for 24 hours as well :O]

EDIT4: Featured~!

I think people shouldn't be physically attacked for who they are or what they believe in, but they shouldn't be immune from hatred, mocking, or criticism.

I'm an athiest and one of my best friends is a Devout Christian. We're both aware our differences in religious beliefs and we accept our differences and coexist like civilized human beings. Instead of focusing on why we're different we instead focus on why we're similar (we both have Asperger's Syndrome, we both like anime etc.). I'm really glad she's my friend because she helps me be a better person, and I'm sure she feels the same way.

Very true, some people think it's okay to treat people badly because of their religion. People have also used the excuse that religion is a choice so they can be insulted or treated badly because of what they believe. That being said, I also hate it when people use religion as an excuse to treat people badly especially Christianity because Christians are supposed to show people love and mercy even when they don't deserved it like God did for us. Sure, I don't always treat people the way I should but I'd never use my religion to excuse treating people badly.

I totally support. The only problem is that, all the atheist in my school are idiots who bullies others because of their belief. Seriously, who want to be friends with that?

That's right. We need to accept differences. I'm adding this to my collection.
