Why is it okay?

Why is it okay and accepted to make fun of people for their religion, bash their beliefs, bash their way of thinking and call them extremely derogatory names. I thought that in this day and age, discrimination based on gender, religion, skin colour, disabilities and sexual orientation was highly frowned upon?

I guess not.

Because people always look for a reason to bash.
If they can't find one it gets personal.

Where are the admins when this is happening?

It's a free for all behind a screen whether the ass hat feels that way or not.

Instead of focusin' on the bad replies, use it as steppin' stones to stand taller in your convictions.

Well one single example today would be "calling all bible thumpers" I think it was called. It happens on a daily basis in MC.

I agree, and thanks for your reply, but why is it okay? Why do the admins ignore it, yet if you made a racist post it would be gone immediately and you'd be reprimanded?

Why is it ok for the religious people to tell others they are going to hell? I consider that hate speech :)

Oh no, every religion/belief/faith is sacred. Each person is on their own path and should be left to have their own personal beliefs....unless that person is a Christian. It's the cm way.
