A little too far…
Posted by claoclao
I am well aware that in religion and politics no one will ever agree. So I don’t expect to have many of you see my point as I see it.
My mother recently read a quote posted by someone on her list.
The quote read:
“Communist, until they become rich. Femenist, until they get married. Atheist, until the plane falls”
Given the recent events and others we won’t soon forget; I find this quote disturbing. Specially because the person who posted this should know better. I guess, this goes to show that just because you have a college degree does not mean that you are exempt from opening your mouth and inserting foot.
My first reaction was “Why?”
First of all, if it was posted as joke, I say bad timing. If it was posted as a “Get closer to God you heathens”. To that I say, you cannot assume that because a person is not hugging a bible 24/7 that makes them atheist.
All in all, why this was posted I will never know for sure, what I do know is this person lacks two very important things, empathy and common sense. Empathy for those people that are praying to whatever is the center of their moral compass for the safety of their loved ones. Common sense to know that even though you have the right to say anything and everything that comes out of your mouth, sometimes that freedom is taken a little too far.
