Before you comment: Read.
Or you won't understand.
Edit: Click on this link and you will completely understand what the above stamp and below description means.
Even if I explain it, it seems a lot of people are too fucking dumb to see what the actual intention behind this statement is and completely misunderstand it, so I hope the direct below link in the Edit will help.
This isn't about religion itself. I don't care about what you believe in, stop preaching,
it makes you sound foolish and lazy, like you couldn't be bothered to read anything in the description.
This is about being able to express an opinion about religion, any religion. I'm not going to explain this to anyone anymore. If you're too dumbfucked to be able to read or comprehend anything written here without actually preaching, then it's not my fault and I wash my hands of you.For all the "I love Jesus/God" crap there is on dA
, there's not a single stamp like the above. (However, feel free to correct me on that.)
I don't get it. People express their love/like of God, Jesus, religion, etc and expect us to respect their opinions/statements, be tolerant and civil and yet whenever someone else says something like I hate God/Jesus/Religion
they get offended and become some of the most intolerant people I've ever met.
We've as much right to the above as you do to these:
A friend of mine was actually denied being allowed onto a Greyhound bus only
because he was wearing a t-shirt with the exact same words as my stamp. The people on the bus were offended and quite frankly I don't see why. Things like this happened several times to myself as well as I also own clothing that say I hate God/Jesus
on them. I once wore a black t-shirt that said I hate Jesus
to a bar some friends and I were regulars at and the owner told me I couldn't come in unless I changed my shirt. I refused, we argued, I'm now banned.
I'm also just as sick of going onto my Facebook every day and seeing your I love God/Jesus
crap all over my wall, or wearing t-shirts that say you love Jesus, or your hats, sweaters, bags, the cards in shops, books, seeing those giant crosses in front of your churches, etc etc etc. For as much as Christian's preach tolerance, they're some of the most intolerant people I know when it comes to anyone saying anything about their faith.
If religious people have the right to express their love for God/Jesus/religion, the opposite must
also be true, respected and tolerated.
I won't censor my opinions, thoughts or ideas for your precious feelings. It isn't my responsibility to hold your hand and pamper to your spiritual insecurities.
This is in no way propagating hatred, because hating something and hatred are two entirely different things. It's allowed on dA to express an opinion or statement, even if that opinion or statement is hating something. Or else, the below would not be allowed:
So be offended, hurt or angry, you're well within your rights to be. But be tolerant, respectful and civil even when faced with an opinion/ideal that doesn't conform to yours.Edit:
lol@the Mexican jokes.
Go here, right now. Right. Now.

Edit: A lot of people seem to be missing the point.So here, I try once more to clarify.
