It seems as if just about every religious path out there has negative propaganda and rumor to battle. Catholics worship idols, Pagans align with the devil, Atheists hate god, Christians are hateful, JWs will brainwash you, Mormons are a cult, Muslims are violent and angry... The list goes on.
So why is it so easy to believe these falsities over truth? Is it just because people like drama and want something to feel anger towards in order to make themselves feel better? Or is it simply because these things scare people away from looking for the truth?
What's your take?
**BTW, before someone jumps down my throat, I know none of those things are true, they are simply examples!**

I think its easier because its simple. For example, hearing someone say Mormons are a cult don't join, is easier to hear & comprehend than to sit down and listen to one of us list our 12 Articles of Faith, or to sit down and let us explain the beliefs we have. In one sentence people can put stuff out there that people feel is enough information to avoid a religion. However it usually takes much more than 1 sentence to really understand what a group of people believe, which means more time, AND people are lazy! :)

Anyone can say something negative and people will accept it because it's easy, It's hard to research and really understand every religionout there and most people aren't interested in really studying world religions. Look how easy it is to Google something and take as fact any website that has information on it.
