When did a religion founded by someone who preached « Love thy neighbor » and « judge not, lest ye be judged » become one about guns, discrimination and hating anyone who doesn’t share your beliefs?

  1. This isn’t about religion, it’s about human nature. Religion of any kind only has this hold on people because of their nature. Tribalism at its finest.

  2. This happens or will happen to any and every religion. Personal interpretations, biased preachings/teachings and history over all take hold. It’s, sadly, human nature to twist or ruin most things, usually as a result of hate, fear, and other negative things. It’s never the religions fault, but the fault of the humans and how they react to and utilize it. Since religion has been shared, it’s been used as “fuel” or “justification” for unjust actions.

    TLDR; Humans are just like that. It’s always happened and will keep happening unfortunately.

  3. It never did. Judge not lest ye be judged was never a declaration that people could sin as much as they wanted and hear nothing about it either. Personally, I wouldn’t care if they banned guns one bit.I disagree with a lot of things people believe in and do but disagreement is not synonymous with hatred for anyone who has a drop of tolerance in their body. Stop saying that everyone who doesn’t share your views hates you. The atheist doesn’t automatically hate me because we disagree about God. Neither does the Muslim or the Buddhist or anything else. Do some of them hate me based on this? sure but having different opinions about God doesn’t automatically make someone an enemy.

  4. A Christian with hate in their heart is like a “vegan” with a steak sandwich in their belly. Sometimes it’s difficult to give up something but you should not go around lying about it.

  5. Reckon some folks used it to justify slavery too, some others genocide, war, and so on. Mighty likely the practitioners more than the practice are to blame. Give a kid a hammer, everything is a nail.
