Some divisions are more important than others
I don't know if you get Terry Pratchett's 'Discworld' over in the US. It's a series of satirical fantasy novels (set on a flat disc of a world, travelling through space on the back of giant turtle) for those of you who don't know.
This quote is from one of the more recent ones, 'Monstrous Regime':
"The enemy wasn't men, or women, or the old, or even the dead. It was just bleedin' stupid people, who came in all varieties."
It's this sentiment that comes to mind when reading stuff like this:
These are the same people who picket the funerals of those they disagree with – shouting insults at the friends and families of the deceased.
There's a line, running through all beliefs, between those who have compassion and respect for others and those who don't.
The fights I believe to be the most important aren't about religion, or atheism, or anything like that... it's about taking a stand against stupidity, bigotry and hatred – wherever and in whoever we find them.
