What I find amusing is that some folks here get away with ridiculing religion and a belief in God, but any negative reference towards any other Federally Protected group is met with accusations of discrimination and hatred.
Federal protected classes include:
Race.
Color.
Religion or creed.
National origin or ancestry.
Sex.
Age.
Physical or mental disability.
Veteran status.
Genetic information.
Citizenship.

Agree or not, please respect other folk's religious beliefs and don't condemn or ridicule them.

Zinke also announced a new upcoming initiative to further improve national parks by sanding down the sharp tips of mountains that pose dangerous risks to hikers.

Well, that's all fine and well, but when are they going to get around to draining the Pacific Ocean so that Park visitors up at Kalaloch won't drown in the surf anymore?

I agree, thank you for that. And using "amusing" is being polite, I'd say. I feel bad for those who ridicule the notion of God. But, I can't fix that so I continue on as best I can, sometimes good, other times not so great.

Freedom of religion does not mean freedom from criticism by other religions or no religion. So it goes.

Umm.  I do not its very common to kill in the name of no god.

Sorry, but I feel way more hatred coming from Christians toward non-Christains and other types of Christians than any group...

Yeah, there are those... I've not run into any personally, but read of them occasionally, so I have to wonder if that mindset is all that common. I don't know, but if so, I figure they are a bit ignorant of what the basic tenet of Christianity is all about.

And regardless of what anyone's belief's are (or are not), I'd be quite happy to share a table and enjoy a cheeseburger and an IPA and compare notes of various mountains!

Anyway, back to hiking...we surely do not need to start yet another 'squabble fest' here. Winter is only just starting.  wink.gif

That goes for respecting the beliefs of atheists as well, they feel bad for those who need the promise/threat of eternal bliss/suffering in order to be good people.  I didn't see any ridicule of God or religion in this thread, just the trite catch phrases which people use to excuse their poor decisions and actions.

I want freedom from religion in my life.  And that has nothing to with freedom from God, the creator, as it is known in our constitution - totally nondenominational.

I like to hike solo so its just me and God.  We have some pretty cool conversations, well mostly its just me doing the talking...

up.gif Yeah, I like that! It's taken me many years to understand and to separate God from "religion".  smile.gif

The most welcoming and truly friendly church I've attended is one my grandson introduced me to: ECC, a nondenominational in Olympia.
