Sorry to a few of my not-so-stamp-inclined watchers 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.

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 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 Thanks! <3 [edit3: Thanks for front page on "deviantART related" for 24 hours as well ]
