Laugh | :laugh:

How many stories do you need to read about gay children of Christian parents being sent to "pray the gay away" camps, or "gay conversion therapy", or killing themselves because they've been told there's something wrong with them?

Sure, it's "not ALL Christians"; it's just the intolerant dicks, who form a small part of Christianity. But by the same argument, the violent and intolerant dicks form a small part of Islam. The vast majority of Muslims are not trying to kill you, or convert you, or force you to obey their rules. But because that doesn't make for an interesting news story, the only Muslims you'll see on the news are the dicks.

You can't have it both ways. Either the dicks in both religions are representative of that religion, making the whole religion full of dicks; or they're just dicks, who don't represent any group (except the International Society of Dicks), and whose actions can't be used to judge other members of the same religion.
