1. The link
Religion plus Spirituality, Tolerance, Inclusion, the want for Freedoms for everybody, and the knowledge that God loves everybody regardless of who they are or what they believe in is a very beautiful thing.

Religion plus Fear, Bigotry, Hatred, Intolerance, the want to reduce Freedoms, the Feeling that God does not accept or even hates certain groups of people, and mix a little Right Wing thinking in with it and you get one of the most ugly things that humanity has ever seen.
