Maybe.... Or maybe its because of many reasons: socio-economic, writing difficulties: dysgraphia for instance, doesn't have good keyboard skills. Many reasons why many are unable or unwilling to attempt to use a computer, let alone access the web. Historical knowledge is learnt, not all get the opportunity to have a reasonable let alone good education. English is their second language? Unlikely IMO in this case, but in many inner city areas there is a language & sub-culture barrier caused by too many problems to go into here, no?
Been reading Christopher Hitchens?
I dunno about him/her, but I do. Wanna take this outside?

1. Chiristan about 50 years ago. started to scream "white power" and kill many african americans cause of there color.
2. they came back again...
3. chirsitans again.. with muslims... they hate them for no reason than to hate what they believe is god. and there rights only matter. this hate is a joke and so not peaceful. be religon all you want i am done.
religon is not peaceful.

Elegantly written, grammatically correct it may not be, but s/he is expressing their POV and it's one shared in general by many people.
Who's the one doing the name calling, the insulting and the down-putting?
I think its the person with religious beliefs who attacks to defend them, no?
A lot of that going around. Some who feel threatened by being attacked for being critical of religion get angry. Just as those who devoutly believe in the religion of their choice get angry when religion in general or their particular faith is questioned and challenged, yes?
Oh, in case you hadn't figured it out, I'm with him/her. I just say it differently, but my POV is just as valid as his/hers and anyone who is a person of faith. And the only time I'm going to question and argue religion is when I or someone else is attacked or harmed emotionally, physically or in any way caused to suffer because they don't share or believe in a specific or any religion. That makes me a tad angry!
"religon is not peaceful." Indeed it is not in this thread!
Remember now: Sticks and stones, gerryh.....
A postscript: I meant to add that it's possible that this is a troll thread in light of the other thread begun by this same member. Doesn't change my opinions on this topic, but if its an attempt to start a flame war, and using religion is the most flammable topic, then I hope it gets stopped ASAP. Time will tell I guess.
