So I see a lot of posts on here about how not all christians are this, or that, and believe in the extremist views of say Jerry Fallwell, and Fred Phelps. And most of us who speak out against religion, are not speaking out against the moderates, but we are speaking out against the extremists. The one's who want to impose their views on everyone else, whether they agree with them or not. So why do the more moderate Christians just sit back and let those extremists give their religion such a bad persona? Why do you not speak up, and say your views are not my views, and I will not let you taint, twist, and distort my beliefs to suit your political agenda? That portrait of Christianity that they paint, is the only one that many people see. They are loud, they are out in the media spreading their views, and they make sure they are heard. Why are the rest of you just sitting back and letting them get away with it?Answer Question

Some of them don't but I have seen the ones that do, get viciously attacked by the extremists.

Do not throw your pearls to swine for they will tear you to pieces. Something along those lines. Atheists and extremists are completely different people.Can anyone agree with me on that point? I personally do not think any of you ladies are bad people.Extremists are like swine. Wild pigs are the one of the most dangerous animals to get around. They do not have any plan or reason to attack they just come at you wildly. They are really nasty. Although I have heard some nasty replies and have said some myself.(I am sure.) Our arguments still come from what we each believe to come from a good place.(We just get angry and say hurtful things.) Extremists it would be completely a waste of time. They go to the extreme.They do not try to explain or want to talk about anything.They just lash out and tear you down as a person the best they can.
