This is absolutely disgusting. Don’t hate on others belief. I am absolutely shocked that this came up on my dash and am utterly heartbroken that someone went to all the effort of creating this image.
This isn’t hating on beliefs. In ALL OTHER ASPECTS OF LIFE, truth seeking is accepted and normal…yet if we apply the same logic to religion, it is somehow considered hate. By this logic, suggesting that the earth isn’t 6 thousand years old is hating on Fundamentalist Christians. Study after study have PROVED that prayer is ineffective. If finding out that something you believe in or support offends you, you should probably take a good, hard look at yourself.
This image doesn’t say a single thing about religious people. It doesn’t call Christians bad, evil, mean, horrible, stupid, etc. It it not offensive at all, nor is it hateful.
Frankly, I am sick of seeing anything that challenges the idea of religion being labeled as such. We are allowed to challenge each other’s political, social, and philosophical ideas. Religion shouldn’t be exempt from this. Imagine what would have happened to this world if scientists stopped researching certain things in the name of “not being offensive to the beliefs of others”.
Can we stop holding religion to some crazy standard and just treat it like another belief system? Something that SHOULD be challenged and explored so long as one is not personally attacking those who believe in it.

Tumblr. If the truth is offensive to you, you are doing it wrong. If you are so obsessed with your belief system that you attack ANYBODY who disagrees with you, you are doing it wrong.
