All the stupid anti-Catholic questions...
That loony SDA gal a couple weeks ago...
The "If it's not the KJV Bible you're wrong" folks...
I mean, true, if you put 12 Pagans in a room, you've got at least 13 different POVs...but still? You rarely see us nit picking each other. "No, don't call the Quarters like that!" "You're worshiping the Goddess wrong!" "You can only worship MY gods!" You just don't see it here.
So why do we see the Christians hating on each other?
When you get a religion based on being the only one that knows the truth, a sacred text that has different versions of the same story, different tones from each author, different rules in different sections, different interpretations of the oldest primary texts available, etc. & a belief that the whole text is literally, exactly true, it is inevitable.

I have been pagan and have been bashed for "doing it wrong" many times. But now that I am Christian I think a lot of it has to do with people who are too worried about what everyone else is doing to really focus on themselves. So if they project the fears about themselves on others they feel like they are ignoring their own faults. It happens in every religion. For me personally I focus on the "Buddhist" aspect of Christianity like Jesus rather than the old testament which is VERY strict. Another thing is some in the religion do take it too far to the point they will alienate their own followers if the followers do not believe whole heartily in their own opinions. So it is only people hurting their own religion because of hate, prejudice, and superiority issues.
