S/O of removing God from your sign-

So, has the battle for/against religion become so low that its OK to mock people in less than desirable circumstances- ? I know that the family was willingly participating in this-but- is it OK to pick on the vulnerable worth it to make a point-

  • I think it was wrong for him to do this. He was basically mocking a homeless man and putting it all over the internet. Religion or no mocking those less fortunate than you is cruel.

  • Renee- does it only apply as bullying since he was against religion?

  • It's called being a bully. No, it's not ok.

  • There is something wrong with anyone who harrasses someone because of their personal beliefs. This is true regardless of whether the harrasser is religious or anti-religious. The only time anyone should care what a person believes is when that belief is being imposed on someone else.

    It was okay to ask the guy if he'll cross the word off for $20 - who knows, he might be just fine making this exchange. We all are free to choose what we will do for money. But harping on him afterwards is just plain rude.

  • According to the guy who created the video, he has maintained a "friendly relationship" with that family. He "checks" on them, and helps them out with food and small amounts of money from time to time.

  • Thanks Obby-
    and for the record- I am also talking the Pro-religion crowd that rather than help can also use these circumstances to convert- ;)

  • Did anyone else feel like this display is just as harsh as people yelling "baby killer" at an abortion clinic-
    Have we come to the point where everything is fair game?

    In the last post addressing this video too many focused on pro/anti religious themes rather than saying "gee, what an asshole"
