SO MUCH FOR TOLERANCE

OK, I'm assuming many of you have seen these two posts: the person who wants to play Destiny with others within the LGBT/Furry community, and the person who wants to play with Christians. Now let me say first this is not going to devolve into a theological or argument about morals. When the guy(or girl) who made his post about playing with other Christians, his thread was torn apart. He, his beliefs, and anyone who sided with him were discriminated and made fun of. He was told countless times that he was wrong and stupid for believing what he did. Now today there was another post made by a guy(or girl) wishing to play with with those in the LGBT and "furry" communities. This thread, thankfully, was met with nothing but kind words and willingness to play, even by those who were not LGBT. Why is there a difference between the responses to the Christian post and the LGBT/furry post? Neither was condemning those who didn't think like them, simply asking to play with like-minded people of similar backgrounds, yet one was discriminated and made fun of. Why is this OK? We supposedly live in this generation of tolerance, where everyone's beliefs and lifestyles are to be accepted, so why the intolerance? Everybody should remember the Golden rule, treat others the way you want to be treated. Ok guys, it's getting a little out of hand. This is not a topic about religion, it is about respecting each other. Remember, just be nice to people. It doesn't cost anything. You're not required to agree with them, but do not belittle or discriminate against them for thinking differently than you do.

  • The furry community? I can understand Christians wanting to play together (ironic that they would play a game of humans killing aliens in the future, since they are supposed to reject those three concepts together), I can understand the LGBTT community wanting to form clans and talk, yet I find the furry community a little bit strange. I have been told about extreme behavior and extreme drawings based on furry sexual fetishes, yet I can assume that the people that engage in this behavior are a minority of furry fans.

      • Everyone already hates Christians, and the thing is, if you say anything bad about LGBT, the authorities will be all over you. I have no problem with either.

          So -blam!-ing tired of gays these days. Oh you're gay? Sweet, go be gay I don;t care. Couldn't turn on espn for a month without seeing Michael Sam plastered all over despite him being one of the last players taken. Seriously? One team picked up a former Army ranger, thats a baddass story and you hear nothing about it. The gays just want attention and its god damn annoying. Screaming like they are persecuted and lynched when people have to bend over backwards to make sure they don't say anything offensive or else they are accused of hate crime.

          • From what I've been observing about American society, there are a lot of people who are really desperate to be tolerant, that they sometimes forget what that means. They tend to tolerate minority groups and groups that are discriminated against, while ostracizing those that are part of the status quo or mainstream society. That being said, it comes to a point where some people are worried about their image as opposed to true tolerance.

            So do you think it is right that some guy/gal thinks they are a bear? [spoiler]The large grizzly type with razor sharp claws and fangs.[/spoiler] I am not exactly liberal or right wing or any other category, I am me. I think I am kind of easy going, however that's a mental health disorder. To support someone's belief that they were in fact a ursus arctos (brown bear) isn't really helpful to that poor person.

          • Yea that's bullshit, welcome to the age of reverse discrimination, Christians are assumed to be gay haters and all that. I personally don't care who i am playing with, as long as they aren't a dick. Sad age we live in... O wait... Every age has been full of angry discriminatory bastards who want to ruin everyone's damn day... O and serial killers, they are jerks to.

              • Maybe it's because the LGBT community will instantly lynch-mob anyone who publicly disagrees with them, while those that are religious choose the higher road instead which leaves them perceived as easier to openly pick on. LGBT is not a religion, where Christianity is.

                • Basically any group that has been seen as oppressive in the past or present (Christian, White, whatever) that asks for exclusivity is going to be torn to hell and back by todays societal standards. Any group that has been oppressed in the past or present is going to be met with marked approval by society whether deserved or not. It's a double standard that we live with today as the proverbial pendulum has swung way past center beyond acceptance and non-discrimination of minority groups, to extreme reactions to anything perceived as being discriminatory by the so societal majority.

                • Wanna know why those things are met with different responses? For sake of argument, let's say this was all in America. Only a small portion of Americans are LGBT. Being a minority group, it's often difficult to find others to play with. I would assume that this LGBT group is also accepting of those who are straight allies. This is seen as an inclusive group. However, an overwhelming number of Americans identify as Christian. Something like 73% of all Americans. Now, to play with a group of only Christians, this is seen as exclusionary since it isn't accepting of anyone else, especially minority groups. Also, being a Christian is a choice you make, not something you're born with. Even more so, it isn't something you're systematically discriminated against for. That's why it's different.

                  • Because the World hated Christ, as it now hates us. John 15:18-19 "If the word hates you, know that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."

                    • ...because despite the fact that these "neo atheists" claim to despise evangelists... they just can't stop themselves from evangelising. Despite the fact they claim to reject religion- they're not intelligent enough to recognize the fact that they are indeed following a religion recognized by dozens of nations, the EU, the UN , NATO and was in fact THE STATE RELIGION OF THE FORMER SOVIET UNION. what it comes down to is this- they've been heavily propagandised into believing "you're only smart if you believe what we tell you to" (which is never smart)... and when people reject the beliefs they hang their self worth on- they react as irrationally as the beliefs their self worth is built on. Atheism... is JUST another religion, the religion of state over man.
