I've read some posts on here, and some of them are quite nastly and judgemental. It seems from reading them, that a majority of the nasty quotes are coming from a few people who are Christains, and have no tolerance for anyone other than a "die-hard" Christian. Before people jump to conclusions and say i'm bashing Christians, no, i'm not. I personally know some people in my life who are Christians and they are some of the most forgiving, loving, non-judmental people i've ever met. I aslo know people who are atheists, agnostic, pagen, and so on, who are just as good as the Christians i know.
I don't understand what gives anyone the right to judge others, condem others, or behaive as if they are superior b/c of their religion? Why can't people be tolerant, accepting, and kind? Is it fear? Is it religious teachings?

Because religion absolves them from social responsibility.

Some of the meanest, bitter, elderly people were the first ones in Church in week, sitting in the front pew, offering to volunteer for just about everything, sang the loudest, and responded the loudest, but no sooner than leaving the Church steps, they would biatch and moan at children, people in their way, etc.
I watched some lovely people turn angry and bitter as they age, I think it has less to do with going to church and more to do with the chronic pain from which many elderly suffer.

The nastiness is not limited to religious, you find it everywhere on here from breastfeeding/bottle-feeding, vaxing/non vaxing, etc.
I think part of it has to do with the relative anonymity of the Internet, people feel more at liberty to let out the emotions they might hold back when having a conversation with someone standing in front of them.
