i thought you had finished on this subject publicly. there`s will power. ok take religion out of the equation cause as you say it`s more trouble than it`s worth.All i`m concerned about is innocence and people being caught up in the middle who do not deserve to be harmed in any way, psychologically or physically just because they are unfortunate enough to live in an area which is in the middle of some kind of dispute with another country. i`m concerned for innocent people of those areas been aware that they are being seen as the enemy of the rest of the world and how this might damage them psychologically,if you lived in those areas and you had children who were seeing things on the internet that made them feel like they belonged to a race who were depicted as the bad guys in video games soundtracks etc ,you would want to protect them naturally.Jonathan5456 wrote:There is really no good way to respond keeping things brief otherwise any response would just look vague and hollow in the reasoning behind it and there isn't much point to say anything at all if there isn't solid logic behind it. So if you cba I don't mind you not reading this. ;D But it's here as a response anyway.
The main point of my argument is this;-
Belief in something that no human can ever prove does not deserve some special treatment or respect nor does it deserve people trying to justify religion as being a good thing for humanity based upon the fact that there are peace-loving people that are religious. They could still be peace-loving people without religion, so to me using peace-loving people as an example to justify religion is a completely invalid argument that I do not accept. (It's the same, and rightly so, as you not accepting the condemnation of religion based upon a minority of violent psychotics.) I'll say it time and time again that religion, by its default position, is the enemy of logic and reason. No society has ever suffered because its people became too reasonable.
If no one were religious then I would absolutely agree with you that type-casting others as enemies is a despicable thing to do. But right now when deeply religious people are the ones in power over a powerless populace then it is a reality that we, and the middle-east, needs to accept because religion causes more harm to humanity than anything else.
Look at some states in the United States, proposing bills that will allow 'creation' to be taught as an equal to the theory of evolution or proposing bills that will allow police, doctors, businesses etc to deny service to homosexuals and these come from deeply religious republicans. My point is that opposing religion is a much more important thing than videogames merely type-casting people of a certain religion as enemies which you seem to think is a big problem; but there are more children that grow up being taught religious beliefs that hate homosexuals and people of other or no religion. So really, religion itself is a much more harmful thing to humanity.
Aliens are a safe bet, but they'd probably have came to our planet to wipe us out due to their religious belief that if they wipe out enough planets they will get to paradise and get to sleep with dozens of virgins.

You've gone and leaped to an absurd conclusion and painted Sherz as some kind of racist, propaganda-spewing music machine based on absolutely nothing at all other than your already existing personal (and misinformed) feelings on certain things. I'm all for freedom of speech, but you have no grounds to accuse someone of such a thing.
