The other day some one said that holiday's where evil and turned from evil to good when they where converted to a new faith. An Anon pointed out that you could say they where good and holy and turned evil by those that converted them.
I wonder when people claim that the other is evil do people stop and realize how it could be turned like this? Do people look at that and consider how they would view having thier faith called evil by others every day?

It is one of the luxuries of being "right," getting to call the paths of others evil. It is what is wrong with monotheism & literal translations of myth. Our holidays are what they are, very old themes that each group tweaks to fit their mythology. Few of them have ever had any elements you could call evil or even negative to any degree.

I think maybe the person making the comment about turning evil to good said it because she didn't like the way the original question was phrased.
You make a good point lisarose however even if I wouldn't want to do everything the ex-wife did, I would find it tedious to try and avoid everything the exwife did/went/wore. If I liked a restaurant before, I'm going to like it after and I'd still enjoy going, hypothetically speaking.

I understand it is not most that is why I only asked about those that felt the need to do so. It seems to go in cycles in this section for a while it is nice and respectful (for the most part never a 100%) and people play half way nice, and than we get over that part of the cycle and the claws some out and every post has really harsh bashing in it. Thing that most people here would discipline their kids for saying.
