What you said above is a bit too simplistic. There have been some posts which might be read as a "put down" of religion, which is quite rude.

I just feel that in life, not just in this case, that too many people are quick to criticise those who have religious view when it is not necessary

For example, my uni has a Christian union. They do this toastie thing where they ask people to text a question about Christianity/God/etc and then they will come to you, answer it and give you a toastie. Sometimes they give out leaflets about this and other similar events.

What irritates me people who see this and complain and say "they are trying to convert me, they are everywhere, let them leave me alone". It happens all the time. If you don't want to be "converted", then quite simply ignore them. It is very easy. If they give you a leaflet say no thank you and carry on with your day. It is not hard.

I also have problems of people who get offended when their religion is mocked, but are all too happy to mock other religions.

There is a lot of unnecessary snides and problems with: - -atheism and religion, especially Christianity
- within one religion (protestants an Catholics for example)
- within different religions (Muslims v Christians and the bombings in Nigeria)

It is a joke. I am very please with the support everyone gave to Muamba, but IF I am being honest, from what I have seen in my 19years of living, I do not have positive views of the human race.

Greedy, selfish and destructive individuals. Controversial I know, but meh, I just hold a negative view of society.
