Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

question #6...

What's the difference between faith and bigotry?

I think that would depend on the faith, but you're starting to get into areas of deep individual perceptions here. I think that most faiths have a built-in bigotry connected to them... as in, "I'm better and you're lesser due to my faith and your lack of it or differing faith."

Yes, my problem with faith as espoused by religions is that it's a convenient escape clause. They don't have to prove any assertions they make, they just wriggle out by saying "it's a matter of faith".

"Faith" also doesn't question any assertions, they are just blindly believed. That's what "faith" is all about. So I can't see how it's anything except bigotry dressed up in a gaudy robe.
