LOL. So, so true!

How nice is it to have religion to hide behind and justify all the terrible things human do that will make them inhuman otherwise!

sigh..

when will people ever learn?

some people can actually say "i dont care and let it be." but it would change 180 degrees when the thing happens to them.
how selfish...double sigh....

actually, if you cast emotions aside and really think about it, it is not hypocrisy...rather it shows the corner everyone who advocates 'tolerance' paint themselves into. We are prepared to tolerate only those things which we agree with. Tolerance for other religions only goes as far as tolerance for those aspects that we find acceptable. If those religions promote something which to outsiders appears intoloerant, suddenly the 'tolerance' advocates become very intolerant themselves. Just look at how hot under the collar people get when the 'Church' speaks out against homosexuality. Any religion is a club with rules and guidelines for membership. Those on the outside expect those rules to conform to THEIR wishes. Why? Who really are the hypocrites?

You trying to spoil my fun? :D

Interesting breakdown on the meaning of the cartoon.

Hypocrisy does have a question mark after it ;)

Glad I posted something that inspired a comment...thanks for the comment!

David said...

hahaha...of course Rob...I like spoiling people's fun...it's like my final stand before bowing out of the Indonesia experience and retreating to my barracks in Sunny Queensland :)

I did notice the question mark, that's why I responded, just to add a different perspective to the previous comments.

I think the long comment is indicative of the time I can now reclaim as my job winds down and I prepare to go home. Might have time to write something inspiring on my own blog shortly :)
