I really don't understand this one! I have been through a pretty difficult time with regards to a friend right now. She has had an abortion and it is something that I fundamentally disagree with. But a friend of mine, a Christian (I am also one, although have lost my way a bit lately) said to me you can deal with this fine, if you need a little help from God then just ask him. So I did, and he gave me tolerance, and I am able to be there for my friend. Because it is not my problem, God is dealing with it, and with this freedom I feel like I can be the person he wants me to be. This is the point though; I have gained tolerance and patience and lost any judgemental element to my personality. Which is obviously in line with Jesus' teachings: everyone is a sinner, and any sinner who turns to Jesus will be saved. So it is not for any of us to throw the first stone. So how then, can religion turn people against the rest of the world, when in this action they are also turning against Jesus?
