I know you're religious. There's no need to so vociferously defend yourself. I wasn't personally attacking you. I'm just a random guy on the Internet who is shaped by his experiences and environment like everybody else.
sooo, hi from joseviano :)
Mate I don't know why you're going on a rant there, I didn't even mean that the way you think..
Pretty long text tho, really long..
It really isn't. Unless you've got more than "well that's what I've seen," you're just tarring an entire--and enormous--group of people with the brush of its worst offenders. This is like saying that men in Florida must be predominantly substance-abusing, violent, mentally-unsound people because that's the only time you hear about Florida Man.
Keep in mind: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Chinese folk religion* collectively cover more than 80% of the human race. Even the most generous estimates say that no more than 25% of the global population is some flavor of nonreligious (atheist, agnostic, secular or secular humanist, "not religious,"** non-practicing, etc.) "Hypocrisy is predominant in religion" literally means that you're saying the majority of 80% of humanity are hypocrites. That's why I'm arguing.
I get that not everyone thinks this is an important issue. It is an important issue for me.
*There isn't a more precise term than this one, or at least not one universally accepted. "Shenism" or "shendao" may be the next best alternative, but there's really no good option.
**That is, someone who answers a survey with the phrase "I'm not religious," which may include some people who have spiritual beliefs, but who reject most/all religious labels or institutions.
But, y'know what? This is not a fight worth continuing. If you wish to slag on an enormous swathe of humanity due to its worst elements, and pretend that that makes them specially awful, fine. That's up to you. I'm done.
why is the symbol for integrity an unlocked lock but the symbol for corruption a lock
Because a society that is free of corruption is open--like an open lock. At least, that's the logic I'd always assumed.
