Repost this anywhere
I don’t usually post my opinion on politics, religion, or world issues however today that shall change.
Over the past couple of days, or more so in the last decade I have heard/seen people make various comments regarding terrorists and extremists. Comments in personal conversations, over the news, in lectures, over social media (blogs, twitter, Facebook etc) all with one thing in common… associating terrorists and extremists to religion.
THIS GRINDS MY GEARS BECAUSE HOW CAN YOU ASSOCIATE SOMETHING SO SACRED LIKE RELIGION TO NEGATIVE ACTIONS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE RELIGION.
Yes, people in those positions do believe that they are religious and doing well in the name of God however they are simply taking religion out of context and making their own interpretations.
I think people neglect to realize that these negative actions have nothing to do with religion and it is VERY important that people take the time to reach this realization. Unfortunately, there are fanatics and extremists in EVERY religion who take things out of context and by doing so create trouble or make rash decisions harming others. We cannot then point fingers and have negative annotations to religion because it has NOTHING to do with it.
I could go on for days about how I feel, however I will do you the favour and won’t. But when reading comments about these sort of things or in a conversation bashing religion due to extremists please take the time to stop them and perhaps educate them. You would be surprised how far education can take you, so why not use that knowledge to spread positivity and love.
