Hating Islam, Christianity, Atheism, singers, FOSSers...

When you get to see how wide the variety of people who go by a certain tag can become, statements like “I hate Xxxxx” (substituting a pet belief for Xxxxx) make no sense at all.

I have associates who are Islamic, Christian, Atheist, Buddhist & belong to other groups — & yeah, some of them are jerks.

But most of them are not jerks.

Whenever someone says (or implies) “All Xxxxx are jerks”, the vast majority of Xxxxxers who are not jerks get socially hit as well.

Think about it, before slinging off next time. And don’t sling off.

I’m pretty sure that’s the big secret to world peace.

I know that it ushers in local peace fairly well.
