Merci Br. Patrick !

How can one religion, as Islam, say that it has the only way, route, to God... as it is saying it's the ONLY religion it says,

and isn't that something negative against humanity!

Have wonderful day!

Au revoir,
hugs!

I'm sure that you would agree that this is inappropriate.  But LOVE them just the same, even if they are misguided.  I was taught similar things in my youth in a Catholic Grade School.  Now, I see things quite differently.  Let them believe what they want.  It doesn't hurt you anyway.

I think that such ignorance can hurt many.

Did you see Brokeback Mountain, that movie...

I think ignorance is best left alone.  To try to correct another's ignorance brings you down to the same level as them.

I do not think that ignorance is OK!


Everyone needs education and to accept humanity in order to better it !!!!

What do you think...

au revoir,
hugs!

In principle, I totally agree with you.  But it's not OUR job to change others..  We CAN, however, change OURSELVES to be loving and accepting people.   Love always affects those around us.

Merci Br. patrick!

What you say... is one way!

To me, there are ALSO other ways!!! Many!

You can not let a murderer keep on murdering, is my aim.
What is left to danger goes around, does it not...

Education is a prority in a normal society!
Do you think is was normal for many countries to willingly send over one million gays to Germany to death stoves, only because they were gay men...
and to-day Iran hangs young gay men in line...
what is next, tell me...
as even a politician in Canada, a few months ago said in a high school that all homosexuals should be extinguished! What is your way to re-act to that...

au revoir,
hugs!

We have come an IMMENSE way since the Stonewall Riots of 1969.  Before then, homosexuality was punishable by death for around 6000 years!  We all need to educate.   I do it with LOVE.

It is to my fortune that I have never had gay-bashing done to me.  But it affects you stronger than anyone I know.   I realize you have been a victim and NO ONE can understand what you have been through.  But you have the opportunity to change your way of thinking.  You may need professional help.  I do for anxiety and depression.

Merci Br. Patrick!

Yes, some progress but is that a reason to become blind to-day to let that and worst happen again... tell me!

I do not pay lip service... as you know like many do!

A gay man gets murdered and most people still don't care, it seems to me!
Look at the Matthew Sheppard who was murdered because he was gay;
if you want to talk about him on Bettermost, most members don't care to do so! Not even gays on Bettermost! I find that STRANGE! Like lip-service!

I have travelled a great deal and seen much, and I know that most citizens in the USA, Canada and elsewhere in democratic countries usually stay at home and don't see much violence, right! To them, such actrocities as gay-bashing does not exist or too rarely; it like TV shows to them as they couch like becoming dead potatoes! Bull! Even the gay community needs to be awaken now and tomorrow, and not only of yesterday!

The millions gays who were murdered yesterdays as like in German as well as to-day like to-day in Iran and China because they are gays as the reason, is our backyard; and, just look really in our own countries, gay bashings are happening too - even murders! But no one wants to talk about that, not even on Bettermost! Shut up Artiste! Stay in your corner!

What dirt do we place under the carpet... by hiding, fear or keeping on being ignorance. That boomerang comes back, did it not...


Au revoir,
hugs!

I totally agree with you.  It's easy to become complacent.  Watch "Milk" - the story of Harvey Milk who, along with the Mayor of San Francisco, was assassinated.  30,000 people showed up for a candlelight march to City Hall.

I'm a Follower, it is not my nature to lead.  You seem to have what it takes to LEAD.  Do so, I'll join with my thoughts and prayers.  You have clearly made your point here at BetterMost in this Blog as well as others too. 

Harvey Milk was a leader.  The movie shows him 'recruiting' others to THE CAUSE.  Learn from him, you are much alike.

ps, I have a Matthew Shepard wristband..  And I display his picture proudly in my hermitage.
