    Why do the ones who protest so much and point out wrongs, are so often with evil intentions?

    Do you think that people who seem to pounce upon social upheavals of the broadcasts in recent news, are undermining and perhaps have an agenda, not favorable to humanity, itself?

    I think that there are many reasons. In my view, probably the most common reason is projection. People who point at others, often, have not looked at themselves. Either they don't know how, or they are afraid to. To use Jesus' image, they have not yet removed the log from their own eye, and are all too willing to point out the dust mote in someone else's. They are willing to confess the sins of others, or even rage against them, but perhaps unwilling and unable to see their own limitations without fear or shame.

    I think it is more often this unconscious projection, and less often a specific agenda, that creates such criticism. But some people do have such agendas, and are either consciously or unconsciously manipulative. In addition, anyone who does not know himself well can be manipulated by others who do have hostile agendas.

    Let us all become more self-aware, seeking to grow and heal, and less concerned about the mistakes of others.

      Thanks Sid, this is so much a problem we have experienced in recent days. I once likened propaganda and evil agenda pushers as like a big roulette wheel that has been rigged to land on the picks the power mongers decide.

    Well... Look at the Westboro Baptist Church. They are based off of Christianity, in which God preaches that everyone is loved, and that we are all his "children." If that is really true, then why do they go around holding signs saying "God Hates Fags," "Pray for More Dead Soldiers," and "Thank God for the Bombs," all while desecrating the American flag by holding it upside down or even stomping on it into the dirt? And what's worse is that they are teaching little children that they are doing the "right" thing, because they are far too young to understand religion on their own?

      This is one example of a fundamentalism. Fundamentalisms form in all religions through a process involving a re-telling of the original story around a later traumatic event. Then a whole sub-culture, called a sect, forms around the new idea.
