Terrorism & Scapegoating Communities Why You Should Not Do It?
On a recent post in the forums some asked do we think that the Muslim community is dangerous?
What a stupid question to ask, I mean thats like saying all Christians are homophobic and all Germans are Nazis.....THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!!!
Islam means peace and you can not scapegoat a whole community because of the actions of extremists, we have extremists in all religions and all walks of life, how can you honestly say that a whole community is to blame for the actions of misguided idiots?
The Nazis came to power in 1933 through racial hatred, not everyone agreed with them and not everyone liked what they were doing thats why we went to war, and yet we still blame the German people. Well I am sorry to burst your bubbles but Hitler was an extremist along with the nazi party and he and his followers were to blame for the holocaust not an entire community.
In America you have the KKK and various other groups who are evil white supremacists are we to scape goat the whole of america and say that you are all members of that group? No because we know that they are extremists and not everyone believes in what they stand for and not everyone is evil. Abraham Lincoln said "Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves" when he went to war with the deep south to abolish slavery...
I think people should learn that terrorists have no religion, they only have hatred, bigotry and are apathetic to the true meaning of religion, love, caring and understanding. Please stop scapegoating I mean we know that some people in the religious circles state that being gay is a lifestyle and a sin in the eyes of god, How do they know? have they actually met god, talked to him, and what makes them feel that they can judge - this is because they are extremists and not preaching christianity only a twisted view but you can not say that all christians are like this because we know that they are not like that and actually are acceptant and tolerant of all men and women.
I hope that you understand me when I say "Yes Terrorism is wrong and unforgivable, but you can not blame an entire community for the actions of an extremist.
