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.

  • Because you're on the internet and 'tolerance' is hit or miss.

      • I'm glad it's that way around. My faith and God are big enough to cope with a bit of criticism. Attacking a person's sexuality is far more damaging in my view.

      • Well besides being on the internet which most people lack respect no matter the topic. Most people in gaming these days simply have no respect for anyone.

        • There is a misconception that people looking for other Christians are self righteous bigots because of organizations like Westboro baptist church. Where as people that are lgbt are believed more open minded. You can actually find both kinds of people in both groups.

          • Bump, this is the most intelligent thread I've ever seen on a forum. It's true, kindness is not something to be given to a select few but it is universal.

          • The truth: Because society is teaching generations of kids that being a pervert is ok - that sin is ok - that there is no God and you can do whatever you want - EXCEPT believe in God and have morals and values. Those things are bad, according to our schools, our government and our media. The concept of "tolerance" is a liberal construct and in almost every situation only goes one way - you either believe as they do ( liberals ) or else. They who are always screaming their heads off about tolerance are most often the very same people who have none when it comes to anyone disagreeing with their twisted beliefs, or lack thereof. Truth hurts maybe, but there it is. Oh and the values of Christianity make the unbeliever feel like crap about their own lives - mostly because they don't have a clue about what Christianity is really all about, b/c they've been lied to by a society that only values selfishness and sin.

            • This is an excellent topic, I agree completely with everything that you have said. People hate on Christians becasue they are "close minded" (and yes some are) but hating all Christians for the beliefs of a few makes that person no different.

              • Christians know that there will be a time where we are persecuted even when we show love and peace. Many think that time has already started. All I can do is show love and continue in my Faith, which can be hard to do, especially on the internet.

                Unfortunately for all good religious people, the past 3000+ years have given them a terrible reputation, so a lot of people have no more tolerance for the inherent singleminded tunnel vision that people of these beliefs tend to share. I didn't read either thread because I can't stand Christians talk about their beliefs for long and neither can I sympathise with them, and I didn't see the other thread because I simply didn't see it, but neither surprises me. LGBT and furrys appear to be more fun in general

                • It's cool to make fun of Christians. We need to have a common enemy to rally against and they fit the bill because some are really nuts and if you generalize all of them... they are all nuts.

                    Fact of the matter is that this attack from LGBT and even straight non-Christians is in the bible for the end times. Jesus himself stated that those days in the end would be like the days of Noah. If you do not know how the days of Noah were let me summarize: In those days people were homosexual commiting fornication left and right with all peoples, animals, and demons. They were drunks and drug addicts. They were all wicked in the heart and they loved the occult. They were murdering between family and random people to no end. Worshipping of false gods and idols. And also take into account Sodom and Gomorrah. There is a attack on Christianity and there always has been but now even more so because we are at those times Jesus spoke of, that Daniel spoke of and countless more. This is unavoidable because people just do not love God anymore and want nothing to do with him and give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons. It is okay though, although morally wrong there is always a silver lining for Gods people just like for Jews throughout history. God will intervene and Jesus our Messiah is coming home soon. As Jesus said thousand of years ago, As he was hated, so shall we be for his namesake and I hold it proudly. All Glory to God.

                          • The truth? Because people that represent the religious in the US in the political scene are complete assholes and they make people of your religion look like self righteous douches. The religious right wants to restrict personal freedom and legislate their beliefs to force others to follow their beliefs. They used to castrate, jail, or even kill gay people. They have lost that power, but they are still trying to hold on to as much power as they can. The LGBT community is simply asking for equal rights. . . so it is easier to empathize with the latter than the former. Don't get mad at the public for that perception. Blame the theocratic politicians.

                            • How about we dont segregate in any way, and just play with all different people from all different backgrounds and countries? The commonality you need is a love of gaming and the game you play. That's the true beauty of the Internet. The rest is what churches and clubs are for

                                A lot of people have been burned by christians (literally and figuratively). I think you'd have a hard time finding someone who has been persecuted by a furry. People use the internet to lash out. It sucks, but what can you do?

The level of intolerance and ignorance on the part of religious folk prevents the possibility of a civil discussion on the matter. And, like it or not, all your thread is doing is adding more fuel to the fire. Another thread regarding these topics, regardless of personal beliefs = failure. You are ADDING to the problem! not helping to solve it.
