Does anyone else have this problem?
« on: October 31, 2012, 05:57:49 PM »

OK, generally speaking I can and will tolerate Abrahamic religions and respect them. But when I hear how the followers have persecuted and killed a lot of people because of their faith in the name of their God, I just get so mad at them and I just want to curse them but I know that it won't help matters at all. And when the hard-core Christians come into the picture about Wiccans I just can't stop thinking about it and want to hate them just to make things just a little bit easier on my mind, but again it won't help at all. Please someone tell me I'm not alone with my thinking.

Acceptance is a key to life.  :)  That doesn't mean you have to like it.

You definitely are not along , tolerating other are what Wiccans do best even when at times they would rather turn them into a roach and stomp them into mush. It's better for you and you spirit not to , they are after all their own worse enemy. You do not want to curse anyone it could come back to haunt you big time. Be at peace.

There will always be intolerance and even death because of religion.  History has taught us that.  The only way I know of to fight it is to be an example.

Acceptance cann be difficult, just remember they don't know what they are talking about and

I find they react far more satisfyingly to a bit of light hearted mockery than to any actual ire and invective...they really do look like deer caught in the headlights - so when you feel the urge to lash out, try that - it leaves you feeling ever so much more positive and really, responding to hate and intolerance with - well hate and intolerance is a little naff...IMHO.
