If a film was released that openly mocked your most deeply held belief (whether it is religious or moral), would you protest publicly?

Islam='s intolerance towards human rights, religious beliefs and order. Quite frankly, I am tired of their crap.

No.I get insulted by the majority frequently.I'm often forced to follow other peoples beliefs in public life. I have twice feared for my life. Because of who I am. Many of my friends are in the 'closet' because of the intolerance and bullying from christians. I'm an atheist.

@HNY-I'm too lazy to remember your name.
Thanks for your explanation, that clarified a few things. No, Mormons don't believe in the trinity. We believe that God is one person, his son Jesus Christ is another person, and the Holy Ghost is one person.

The Holy Trinity consists of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; One God in 3 persons. Catholics do the Sign of the Cross to honor the Trinity, and Christ's death on the cross; it means "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN"

Just do the normal thing and not go see it.

I think this question is directly related to the video that caused attacks on the embassies. If my beliefs are insulted, I turn my back and deal with it, or provide logical reasoning in a peaceful argument. If only logical kids could run the government.

It kind of makes sense how u said it… maybe a little more explanation?

@pinkyusuck so… basically the trinity is the belief that the 3 are all one person? Because I've heard other people (my friends, teachers etc) refer to Jesus as God.

@monkeyy, the Trinity is one 'what', and three 'whos'. Much like how our government consist of judicial, legislative, and executive branches, but are all the U.S. Federal government. Or our armed forces: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard together are our military. Does that make sense?

Yes, I would. But I wouldn't attack anyone's embassy or kill anyone's citizens over it.

… trinity: perhaps a non-Mormon could explain it to me?? Being christian isn't about believing in the trinity; it about believing in the Savior and the New Testament, which we do. The end, end of story.

I agree with all the people who are also LDS on here. we are Christians. We believe in Jesus Christ as our savior, lord, and redeemer. What else is there? We believe that God, Christ, and the Holy Ghost are three separate beings, so not in the trinity. I don't entirely understand the concept of the

09/17/12 7:17 am

No. I'm a Christian. People do things and produce things that are offensive to me everyday. I just let it go.
I can't imagine what it's like to go around being offended by every little thing all day. Sounds miserable.

I publicly boycotted grapes in support of the farm workers union. Picket sign and all. If some thing presented Jesus the Christ as a child molester I would picket them also. Violence is not the answer however.

@ TDaddy: It falls under the Commandment of "Thou Shall Not Kill". Abortion and contraception are the denial of life, therefore they are killing. To Jesus, even HATE is killing.

09/16/12 8:33 pm

I'm Mormon. I just wanted to point out that we are Christian. We believe in Jesus Christ of the new testament. That's what being Christian is about right? Our official church name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It's right there in the name.

@HNYBDGR301 Christian's have been against birth control for 2000 years? I have the text of the KJV on my pc and "birth control" is not even mentioned once. How can so-called Christians claim to know what the bible says when it doesn't say 10% of the things they think it says.

@bob111 Atheists don't try to convert people with 1% of the fervor of Jehovah's Witnesses. The JWs go door to door in my neighborhood at least once a year, but I have NEVER seen atheists go door to door seeking converts.. Not ONE time in the 8 years I've been in this neighborhood.

When "I want your money" came out, it gave me a good laugh and perhaps less faith in humanity that's all.

ANYTIME this subject comes up Mormons will be thrown on the fire of hate and ignorance! But they did the same to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So we are honored to be with him in this.

Being raised a member of the Mormon church in NC I can tell you I was exposed to all sorts of verbal attacks, lies , misinformation and preachers who knew everything (read NOTHING) about my religion. They were very cruel. Forgive, do not forget.

No, they have the right to hold that view, even if it's wrong. heck, my history book starts out with a very incorrect summary of one of the stories in the Bible, then mocks it. I'm not rioting, I'm just amazed at what an idiot the author is.

Acamus: What's the problem with a Nativity scene? Freedom of Religion, right? Just like what I said about Freedom of Speech earlier, just apply it to that; if you don't like it, walk away, or don't look at it. Is that so hard? Again, grow the hell up.

I would instead educate people about it which is what I did in this case. I also would not take part in the ignorance of supporting those videos, again I also that in this case.

09/15/12 6:31 pm

Yes- but to riot against innocent peoples? No way- go after those targeting me.

09/15/12 6:00 pm

But hell, they haven't stormed city hall over that.......yet.

09/15/12 6:00 pm

The islamofascists are just as bad as our own Christianofascists looking to instill their Christian form of sharia law on the rest of us. Can't wait for the next Xmas season's rant by those nuts how their values are under attack when they can't erect a gaudy display in front of town hall.
