I just don't understand the age old habit of hating someone based on their religious belief.
What is the possible effect on me if you believe that "Gods" name is Abraham or Mohamed or Buddha or Jesus or Zeus or even the Silver Surfer.
I just don't understand wishing harm to someone based on their idea of what God is.
