    Jesus taught tolerance, what book are these nuts reading? Religious freaks are a lot like sports freaks, that whole "our team versus your team" mentality. Except the religious nuts delude themselves into thinking they are somehow justified in doing these ridiculous things.

    Burning books is medieval and retarded. All we're doing by burning the books on 9/11, calling them mossslumms and insulting Islamic law is just making ourselves look childish. America isn't the world fucking police. This is just the Christian crusade under the guise of what's right. Ugh.

    ...And that's why building a mosque near Ground Zero would not be well received, HEAVY-D.

    He's just being sarcastic.

    I really don't see the value of such a provacative act of disrespect. seems akin to the "chip-on-a-shoulder" ploy. Society sure knows a shit ton of ways to waste the most precious thing we have, namely, time.

    Yes, I'm being sarcastic and yet it would be fair if Christians burned Muuusulims instead of the Koran since burning books is so last century.

    Agreed. I summon the ghost of Joseph Stalin to stamp out these religious wackos and drive them back into the dark!

    :ak::bow:

    If only. There's something about human nature that if we could manage to destroy all of the bogus institutions and erase them from memory, new ones would just spring up.

    Intolerance towards religion and religious intolerance both come from the same seed of ignorance.

    Eh, I do not believe in any one book being superior or having some sort of "religious" power. Its just fucking paper with some text on it. They can buy all the Korans they want and burn them all day long. This is AMERIKKKAAA and we have the freedom to do any kind of stupid shit we want. If stupid people think burning some paper is going make their lives better, I say, burn away!

    We'll have to agree to disagree on that one. Intolerance towards religion is just the natural and logical result of reading the recorded history of humanity. Both good and bad come from it, but at the end of the day it's all built on bullshit and holding humanity back. Imagine all the money and resources wasted on Israel for example, all going towards a cure for cancer or space exploration. It's a shame, and yeah, I'm intolerant about it. But it springs from the opposite of ignorance.

    Wouldn't the natural and logical reaction towards religion in modern society be tolerance and not abolishment? I'm all about removing religion from anything regarding law and science but the attitude of eliminating religion because you don't agree with it is absurd.

    All human activity consumes resources. And they're limited. I just think we're wasting ours building temples and such to honor imaginary things. Ideological differences such Communism versus Capitalism can at least be debated, the things they represent exist in the real world.

    How can these people be so hypocritical? They're hijacking the message of their religion to suit their own agenda.

    So people shouldn't be able to spend money on what they want to, eh?

    Not at all. I would just like them to stop spending my money. Take churches for example, they get a pass on taxation. They still use the same infrastructure that you and I use, roads, etc. But these institutions don't have to pay their fair share. And then there's the money that our government spends getting embroiled in conflicts over religion, the support of Israel, etc. That's our money.

    OK but explain to me how paying a guy tens of millions of dollars to throw a ball at a guy wielding a stick benefits humanity? Waste is everywhere. Just as the saying goes, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." It's all perspective.

    ^^^ That's a good point that I actually had pondered as we talked about this. They're similar, and I definitely don't like that so much of our resources are wasted on it, but I just don't see sports as being as big of a waste or as resulting in so much evil. Take the war in Afghanistan for example, I think we can all agree that conflict is a consequence of religion. At $3.6 BILLION per month that alone consumes more resources than all the sports on Earth likely do, and a hell of a lot more human lives. And that's just one example.

    I have to agree with Ali. This is The United States, does anyone ever need a good reason to do something stupid? As long as you're not intruding on someone's freedom you should be able to do what you want.

    Whaaat. The war in Afghanistan has nothing to do with religion. It has everything to do with keeping Pakistan from going nuts and controlling the oil that is transported through Afghanistan.

    Sport always benefits humanity (the violence from fans is not included in my meaning). They only get paid that much because the fans keeping spending their money on it.

    Islamic radicals attacked the World Trade Center -> we invaded Afghanistan. I mean, there are lots of reason why we stay at war but the cause was religious fundamentalism.

    Imagine all the money. What if instead of building this we rebuilt our crumbling inner city schools?

    What would the world be like if all these people were back home making their communities better instead of swirling in a gigantic, ignorant mass? Sports costs us a fraction of this, and is at least entertaining...
