Mr. Rogers was so nice, that when his car was stollen, the thieves returned it to the spot they took it from and left an apology letter.

he was the nicest and my favorite persoon of any show when I was a kid.   
My favorite part was when he fed his fish.

now imagen him looking at you and saying this after you did something bad

I'm afraid I might start a downpour of rage and debate with this, but to be honest, basically the whole show was just that. Christianity is all about being a good person. Love your neighbor as yourself. He was advocating the core of religion without directly relating it. Pretty nice guy.

I know some people are going to be like "BUT CHRISTIANS ARE ALL ASSHOLESRALEFLKW#AFOMDLKVNSKNEIFNEK" or something. Those people are called...
Assholes. The fact that they call themselves Christian, whether they honestly are or not, doesn't really mean anything except that their state is rather ironic.

Christianity has two halves, and therefore two different types of followers. You have the "love and forgiveness" new testament, which people like Mr. Rogers follow, and the "fire and brimstone" old testament, which is what assholes follow.

But what if someone could argue that religion is actually bad in its center core, perhaps even argue that religion "poisons everything"?
#111 to #109 - EllieMuffin (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, here's the thing. Someone could, but it would quite simply be false. The religion I'm referring to, at least, only intends good. That's not an opinion, it's quite simply a fact provided by the religious concepts and texts. It's people interpreting it in extreme ways that make it end up seeming bad. All sorts of wonderfully terrible stuff stemmed from people with lots of influence interpreting something completely incorrectly.
#112 to #111 - pkrbarmoviea (09/17/2013) [-]
You just said its intent was "good", and then you said that people interpreting it in extreme ways make it seem bad. I will simply assume that what you mean by "seeming bad" is something alike crashing a plane in the World Trade Center. The only thing I need now is that you relate religion's intent (good) to crashing a plane in a Federal building.

I'm not trying to be an asshole, I'm really not; but I think that no one needs religion to be/become "good", because this judgement in and of itself is entirely based on everyone's subjective notions of morality (not to say that subjectivity is not alike in almost every sane individual).
#119 to #112 - anon (09/17/2013) [-]
Religion was intended for good and for "salvation" and all that but that's a story for another time.

I think what they were trying to get at is religion did teach the "love thy neighbor" thing, but then you get extreme people doing extreme stuff like the Westboro Baptist and the extreme Muslims who crashed two planes into the World Trade Center.

You get extremists in every group and there's nothing anyone can do about that. They make the rest of us look bad and don't realize that what they're doing contradictions what many "religious groups" for lack of a better term, teach.
#121 to #119 - pkrbarmoviea (09/17/2013) [-]
But you cannot claim religion to have a good core if pushing their ideology to an extreme causes death and terror.
#129 to #121 - EllieMuffin (09/17/2013) [-]
The religion itself is good. However, the way certain people interpret it into their actions may not be. People will always have issues with other people and try to find a medium to channel those issues into drastic action. Religion is often misused as that medium. It doesn't say anywhere in the bible or in any other religious text (I assume), "And he whom you do not like must be smitten by a great metal bird of fire." or anything. Things like that aren't the religion. It's the radicals that warp it.

It's been nice talking, and I mean no disrespect by dropping out like this, but I should get to sleep. 'Night, pkrbarmoviea, as well as the entirety of FJ.

By the same vein of christian assholes just being assholes, a christian nice guy can just be a nice guy.
User avatar #102 to #100 - actinglead (09/17/2013) [-]
well... he was teaching to be nice to everyone. Which is what Christianity teaches. and he may of been doing it because of his faith. But it is a message for everyone that is true. No matter what religion you are. The idea of this post was more of he may of taught christian morals. but they should be world morals...

and i think this even though I personally am not Christian.

I believe that being a good person with already good morals is what makes a religious person a person with good morals, not the religious person being good because religious traits.
If he wasn't religious or got inspired by the good parts of the religion, i still think he would have turned out to be a good person

Implying he compared it to Athiests.

Honestly, this entire FJ thread ******* blows. Sure, how nice he is probably is because he's a minister. But that isn't something that should be pointed out. Honestly, I don't think the content should even have gotten front page. It's as if everyone who thumbed it was like "HUR DUR THAT'S SO COOL, THE RELIGION GUY WAS A NICE PERSON."

so religion
much surprising
very minister

Catholics and Mormons are also very different religions.
#15 to #14 - teranin [OP]ONLINE (09/16/2013) [-]
unlikely, as religion is not intrinsically linked to morality. But, I did consider it, so thumb for you.
#83 to #15 - Slicernicer (09/17/2013) [-]
Not always, but to say that there are never morals linked with religion or certain perspectives on religion would be a bit stubborn.
#108 to #83 - pkrbarmoviea (09/17/2013) [-]
Of course, but read the Old Testament. The immorality of certain passages greatly outbalances what you could call "morally acceptable claims/advice/parables/etc.".
#115 to #108 - Slicernicer (09/17/2013) [-]
Except religious fundamentalism is a fairly modern thing, only emerging as a reaction to the enlightenment. Prior to that it was well understood that you didn't take everything literally.

I follow a religion that only observes the old testament, and the general consensus is don't take this stuff literally you have to figure out what it means.

If you talk to an evangelical on the other hand they may disagree, but I doubt even they would be stoning people.
#120 to #115 - pkrbarmoviea (09/17/2013) [-]
No, no. I understand and partially agree with what you are saying. But if I were to ask you what is the meaning of that passage where God advises the Israelites to break children skulls on rocks in order to amplify their victory, you probably could not really answer me on the terms you just pertained
#148 to #120 - ARRRGGGG (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, you see, the moral of that story is when you defeat someone (and this can be in anything from a decade long war to a simple game of chess) you should always slaughter them to a man, desecrate their corpses, burn and pillage their homes, and smash the skulls of their women and children to show how badly they got beat. Teabagging is also encouraged.

#88 to #14 - thefjgienni **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
could it also be possible that his good traits aren't just exclusive to religious people, and maybe that the show appealed to a wide audience both secular and religious people because can all agree on basic **** that makes us good people?
User avatar #22 to #14 - YllekNayr ONLINE (09/16/2013) [-]
Even if it were, he had the courtesy to not alienate those with different views by actively espousing them on air.

I thought it would be cool to do my siblings' weddings, but they don't want me to because I'm atheist. Apparently that's more important than family.
User avatar #64 to #61 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
One of the reasons I did it was so that I could officiate a friend of mine's wedding, because the place they were originally going to do it wouldn't do a same sex wedding (In Canada, it's legal here).

I got into a brawl with the homophobic father of one of the grooms, who decided to crash the wedding. I headbutted him midsentence, but made it impossible to tell from the angle.

It was glorious.

The best part was going over the pictures with others after the fact. Just imagine the following in an adorably campy gay voice.

"And this is us on the altaaar."
"Oh, you look so great together!"
"And this is the minister lamping my dad in the faaaace."
