church fire ponderings

9 alabama churches were set ablaze by 3 college students who claim it started out as a prank. stupid, stupid, stupid!

i can't help but rant about this.

fire

look, i'm admittedly an atheist, and religion isn't my bag, but this isn't about religion. it's about respect and arrogant ignorance.

much like when the US bombs a mosque in falujah(sp), or sunnis bomb shiite mosques, setting fire to someone's house of worship is just plain wrong and disrespectful. i may disagree with someone's religion, but there's a line that will not be crossed--i may verbally assault your ideas, engage you in discussion or what have you, but you have every right to practice your religion, and your church is off-limits to my assaults. simply out of respect, not reverence.

hope those kids get what's coming to them. come to find out one was a pre-med student--like i needed another reason to doubt the intelligence of doctors...

k, just had to get that off my chest. more cool stuff to come.
