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~!

Yeah like gay rights,I believe being homosexual is a sin in my religion
and people started cursing at me saying "FUCK YOU AND YOUR WORTHLESS RELIGION"
Would they like it if I said "FUCK GAY/LESBIANS THEY ARE SINNING!!"I don't say that,but they have NO
right to insult me or my religion and I'm sick and tired of everyone shoving homosexuality in everyone's
face,forcing them to support it!It's WRONG!

I saw a girl get mad once, because her aunt was sick in the hospital, and one of her friends said 'I'll keep her in my prayers.'

The girl got so pissed off about it, and told the other that her god wasn't going to do anything, and I got pretty mad at that.

I may not be religious, but someone telling you that they are going to keep you in their prayers is about the sweetest thing they can do. Someone is going to ask their god, a being that they believe to be the highest, to make sure that you, your friend, your family member, or someone that you care about is safe and healthy, and you're going to get angry over that just because you don't share the same beliefs? Ugh. 

This works the other way as well, obviously. Basically everyone around me but my immediate family is religious, and they all accept that my mothers are gay and had three children (1 is bisexual and all are atheists). It kind of surprises me that my grandparents are more open-minded than some of the kids my age that I've seen. 

I wish the world didn't work this way, but for now, I guess we'll just have to keep trying to make it stop.

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.

I know this was from a while ago, but you are totally right. I can't stand it when people can't get a long just because they have different religious beliefs.
