Whenever there's a thread that is a contentless bashing of religion or people who hold religious beliefs, there is a small cadre of flag-wavers that stand on it and slap each other's backs over how clever they are.
HOWEVER, whenever those who hold religious beliefs post specific examples of positive contributions by the religious community (say the building and rebuilding of a GLBT embracing nativity scene), this same cadre is silent.
Oh, wait. no they aren't. They also also go and stand on that and and slap each other's backs.
Instead of posting things that are only meant to inflame the other sides, why don't we have some thoughtful and respectful conversation about how and why people see the world differently?
