    Good question. I don't know why we can't all learn from each other and agree to disagree. People need to grow up and stop needing everyone to believe like them. Why are some people so insecure and immature that they can't deal with anyone who thinks differently? It is ridiculous. If they would grow up and learn some toleration, then maybe we could get along. What happened to respect for others viewpoints?

    Because religions teach everyone to think of those of other religions or of no religion as not being equal, as people to be suspicious of, to distrust and to despise.
  • Rashel 2010/01/19 23:49:17
    Because some people like to think they have some greater purpose. Y'Know? I don't know anyone like that. My friends are pretty cool, and my parent and siblings rock!

    everyone should be treated fairly none of us are perfect if we all looked the same or were the same religion it just wouldnt be right remember we are all brothers and sisters in christ

    Because (News Flash) human beings are not equal. Some are smarter, faster, better looking, etc.

    Assuming equality is gratuitous because humans are anything but equal. We have more biological divergence than any species on the planet.

    Great question!

    I believe people have a hard time getting over sterotypes that have been placed in each generation. As far as religion goes seeing that Christianty teaches that all othe faiths that have become before it, are wrong so they are just going bu what thier bible teaches. Sadly because they are not able to get past that they make all the worlds religions look bad.

    it is easy to look past gender and skin....

    but difficult to look past a religion/theocracy which wants to behead or dismember you and commit vast amounts of genocides on people who are not members of that religion/theocracy .

    Remove religion and perhaps war will cease.

    Because organized religion teaches us that some people are more equal than others.

    Bcause when you make fun of someone being different it makes you feel happy inside.

    Who says that we are all equal?

    We should all be respected and have equal dignity but God did not make us all equal

    People are too busy judging others.
    Lets not stop at races and religions, lets deal with everything.
    Sexual orientation.
    Lifestyle choices.
    Fashion choice.
    Musical choice.

    I don't treat people equally. I'd like to think that I don't hate people until I get to know them, but I hate some people less than I hate others.
  • Saki♥Bill'sSweetHeart♥ 2010/01/19 04:16:39
    I try and treat everyone fairly.
    But i think it's just human nature to judge people based on religion, ethnicity, sexuality etc. And when we see something not familiar to us, we assume it's wrong and bad. And we treat the person wrongly.
    And there's also the whole religion thing...but I wont start on that, or **somebody** will bite my head off...

    We hold these truths to be painfully self-evident
    All men are not created equal
    Only the strong will prosper
    Only the strong will conquer
    Only in the darkness of Christ have I realized
    God Hates Us All
  • wildnative 2010/01/19 03:48:34
    Because, we as human beings have brain lapses, how we would want to be treated, if we walked in someone elses shoes.

    You know the age old saying..."Treat others, as you would want to be treated." We forget this, and we get big old gases of brain farts, so that is why we don't treat each other equally.

    There are people out there who ask the same question but never get a certain answer. We all just don't because people mainly have beliefs that say that this isn't right.
  • rustythawts 2010/01/19 03:34:41
    Maybe once humans respect family, friends, and significant others will we be able to figure out this question.

    Are you trying to tell us that you're a black Jewish midget? :)
