    All I've got to ask is: Why

    so much hate? People ranting on about their religions, holding one above another, prescribing to each other what exactly "enlightenment" looks like. All for WHAT? I'm happy if you believe Jesus saves. I'm happy if you believe Muhammad had a message from God. I'm happy if you...

    But it's their choice to sound awfully ignorant,

    though they could have done better with trying to open up more of their minds. Some people just prefer being plain narrow.
