Comments on: ‘Wake-up’ to intolerance against Christians, archbishop says http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/02/13/wake-up-to-intolerance-againt-christians-archbishop-says/ Insights from the UK and beyond Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:18:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Ares Vista http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/02/13/wake-up-to-intolerance-againt-christians-archbishop-says/comment-page-1/#comment-10150 Wed, 05 Aug 2009 17:05:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/?p=1827#comment-10150 In my opinion, religion and a relationship with God is a very personal issue. Fellowship with those that believe the same as you is a good thing, but in the end the relationship that exists between you and God is just that, between you and God. Religion is a way to push agendas by people banding together under the religion umbrella. Shameful.

In neither case does the column (or, one suspects, His Grace) record whether those people who were disciplined bothered to ask or even understood that their statements and emails could be highly offensive if directed to the wrong people.(And not merely to atheists, of course. Anyone who has read and been convinced by Tolstoy’s later works would be offended this faith in magic demonstrated by people who dare to call themselves Christian, or the moral absolutism displayed by so many of our clergy, when Christians should surely be moral relativists.)If they had bothered to check first, then that might tempt one to regard them with at least some sympathy – but if they had, His Grace would surely have mentioned it for that very reason. So it seems safe to conclude that, like so many of today’s whining “Christians”, they got just as much understanding as they gave….

It was the Catholic Church who pioneered hospitals, universities and charity around the world. We are here because of Christianity. Even our laws were heavily influence by Christian doctrines and principles. If only all people will exert effort to study and live Christian teachings, there will be peace on earth. Only in Christianity where we can encounter a teaching to love your enemies.

The state should certainly not discriminate against Christianity relative to other religions out of political correctness, but nor should it discriminate in favour of any religion – but it does. It is time that we abandoned all religions, they are all based on delusions, and none of them improve society. If people would only abandon the twin false hopes of religion and socialism/PC, we could work to craft enlightened, progressive, secular conservative responses to our society’s many problems.

People must be sensitive to the feelings of the people belonging to any religion except Christians. You are an intellectual if you attack Christianity, you are a bigot if you attack others.The deChristianization is a sad reality. Our children are growing up in a society that espouses anti-life and anti family. Gone were the days that we are taught to pray.I don’t know if the Anti Christs will dominate the world, but I still believe what our Lord Jesus Christ promised that the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I just hope and pray that the enemies of the Church will experience conversion and realize the purity of Christ’s teachings. All we need is to build a civilization of love and condemn the civilization of hate that there may be peace in this world.
