stop being an asshole
I have kept this picture for some time. I love the way it makes a simple point, stop being an asshole. How much better would the world be if people stop judging each other based on faith? How many wars occurred in the name of religion? The strange thing is the religions teach love and charity. These teachings are overlooked to justify the insecurities and self-righteousness to hate those that are different. I have seen the compassion and love in the majority of people of all religions. This compassion is overshadowed by the reporting of the negative only. The action of a few extremist tarnishes our opinion of an entire faith. We must see past our insecurities and distrust, for only hate grows from this.
I do not mention my belief because it does not matter. Make your opinion on my words and actions, not my religion or lack thereof. As the cartoon says, we must all stop being assholes.
