I'm shocked with your answers. You demand tolerance yet you ridicule and put down other people. You claim that they're worse educated, believe in fairy tales, are not enlighted, live in dark ages
only because they have some spiritual faith or want to have a tradition they can relate with. How could you? I'm not a religious person myself but even I feel outraged with your comments!
Personally I know two married couples composed of a Catholic and an atheist, so it seems there is no problem with accepting others' views even within marriage, so tell me why you can not accept it? Among people who are Catholics I know people with very liberal views as well as those with conservative or mixed views, depending on a subject. Why then do you tar all people with the same brush and abuse them? Isn't stereotyping a trait of uneducated and bigoted people?
As for fairy-tales, those "fairy-tales" are sometimes needed for a psychological reasons. Imagine you talk with a terminaly ill person, would you have no heart and tell that person that there is no God and he is waiting for his ultimate end? Would you do that? If you did I'd say you're cruel person. Some people need a hope, a sense for their existence to deal with a death, misfortune, unjustice. Some people need tradition - that makes them feel that they belong somewhere. Isn't it a quite human thing? Why to laugh then?
I disagree with many views presented with religious people but I would never resort to ridicule anyone only because that person believe in God. It's just unclassy and wicket. I might not believe in those
things but I understand people who does. I think it's a feature of an intelligent person to understand sociological phenomenoms and not to draw easy conclusions. An easy conslusion would be exactly saying that only a simple-minded person can be religious.
if I'm Agnostic,deist,atheist,can I say that to Polish people in Poland?
If you won't ridicule other people's faith I see no reason why it might be a problem for anyone. Poland is presented abroad as a ultracatholic country but it's a false perception.
Seriously? - Murders are methods and toll of religion so much more.
No, it's a toll of politics mainly and religion unfortunately isn't and never been free from politics. But it's not an idea which is wrong, it's just people who made wrong use of it.
if sb. says about angels, harry potters, jesuses, maries, demons, miracles and so on - then they were not studying carefully and prefer to stick to BELIEFS, BOGUS TRENDS and SUPERSTITIONS instead of FACTS and SCIENCE, Mr Ironhead.
Treat it less literal more metaphorical. Religious people not always believe in all that. I heard about some surveys which exposed that most Catholics in Poland don't believe in hell. They believe that God is so merciful that he forgives everyone.
