Thread Name: Wasn't this about music?
Subject: RE: Wasn't this about music?
I got to say it; I find it weird when anyone tries to justify intolerance and/or hatred based on religion and Christianity in particular. Anyone with any familiarity with the teachings of Christ should see my point. To throw more butane on the fire, I also find it weird when Christianity is blended with what is now said to be conservative politics here in the US, a strain that has no historical ties to American conservatism before Ronald Reagan or maybe Nixon. Jesus of all people in history was the most radical progressive there ever was. Can you see him supporting a candidate that says the holocaust was not so bad or makes a state visit to honor the graves of Nazi monsters? Sorry, but give me a break!
