Why is it when you disagree with someones viewpoint, they view you as a hater or racist?
Why is it that when you don't agree with someone's behavior they take it personally and think you hate them or don't like them, and can't see it is the behavior that is being disagreed with?
The way I see it it could be a couple of reasons:
A) they are so set in their ways that they cant possibly fathom other views regarding their behavior
B) they are so insecure that when someone offers up a different view, they throw up their hater defense mechanism to try to keep their ego intact, usually inflating the behavior that started the whole problem.
C) they are republicans and cannot see any other views outside their evangelical box.
Many people attack like this to try and shut you up. They are not interested in hearing your thoughts if your thoughts disagree with theirs. Usually they have an agenda and your views get in the way of that, so they will do anything to make you stop talking.
It would depend on what one says or does when they disagree or what the other person thinks they are hearing, reading or seeing. There is no need to call someone a racist or hater simply for giving an opinion, however opinions can also be hateful or racist and the person who is saying it knows exactly what he or she is doing. I am all for freedom of speech and I can be very controversial at times, but I wouldn't care if someone called me names if I know they don't apply to me. I operate under certain principles which include not labelling people, not spreading hate or not making racist statements while reserving the right to speak my mind at the same time.

Why do so many hubbers delete comments just because they disagree?I see this a lot particularly on hubs espousing things like Noahs flood, or the inerrancy of the bible. I don't delete opposing comments when I write about evolution - why cant these people deal with contradicting opinions. Is it...

I have just commented on a hub, which suggested that President Obama is the incarnation of the devil. I did not agree, and said so, and needless to say my comment has not been approved. I do wonder why Christian fundamentalits are so fearful of those who do not share their...

Why do people ask God related questions if they already have an answer?I see a lot of questions, not only in HubPages but also around the web about science related topics like evolution or if you believe this why don't you believe in God? Then when someone provides an answer, even when this answer...

Why ask a controversial question of others whom you do not agree with?I'd like to know what the point of this is? Do you want to learn, cause arguments or claim persecution? There have been quite a few from a number of people, like this. I'm confused, particularly due to the responses of the...
