Both are equally bad as far as I'm concerned.

Religious views. But they both suck.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 4/2/06 - 11:11:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
Religious views.

At least, that would bother me more, and I'm not even that religious.

Attacking someone based on their religious views causes more large-scale damage.

Religious beliefs. Chances are, if one person attacks you because of your looks, another person could think that you are beautiful.

Interesting question...

On one hand, religion is a very sensitive subject that should not be messed with.

But on the other hand, you control your religious views a hell of a lot more than you control your looks.

I don't know.

Can't control your looks.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 5/2/06 - 12:17:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I care a lot more about my spiritual faith and religious affiliation than about my appearance. There's something so crude about insulting someone's looks that as painful as it may be, it doesn't have as damaging an effect beyond that individual.

Looks. At least when you have a different religion from others, you always have your beliefs to fall back on. Most likely, your religion teaches you that all of your detractors are enemies of some sort and you can always believe in the word of the religion, which can offer you some comfort.

When it comes to looks, you're not as likely to bounce back. Some people want to be accepted by others and looks could be a very important part of that. Looks could stop you from getting a girlfriend, getting a job, selling a product or signing a deal with a client. Religion teaches you to endure criticism, while society does not.

16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 5/8/06 - 11:05:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Looks, because no one has any choice in that and a person's looks never really harmed anyone. I don't see anything wrong with attacking the religious beliefs of hateful fundamentalists like Falwell, The Pope, and the Muslim Ayatolla's.

i think that it depends on why youre attacking them
such as:
youre discussing religion and the other person doesnt get that you dont have believe in the same stuff that you do, they just wont let go of it, they want to change you

in that case i would attack that person because of their religous views, my fork is ready and waiting

ppl cant really do anything about what they look like, but they can be considerate of other people's beliefs

I've been judged based upon both, and they both hurt like hell.

Have you tried treating others the way you'd like to be treated?

What does that have to do with anything?

Good point, UL. If more people took something as simple as that into consideration before they acted then life would be slightly better for all.

Its not right to attack someone for their religious beliefs or their looks. I wouldn't want someone to do that to me so why do that to them?

That is the golden rule after all

I disagree w/ what UL said, b/c there is A LOT of Christian/agnostic/atheist-bashing on this website alone and there doesn't even need to be anything said to provoke it.
And just how would it go that way w/ looks?

People usually have good intentions with that principle, but I prefer to treat people the way that *they* would want to be treated.

At least, I *try* to.
The way that *I* want to be treated isn't always the same as how someone else wants to be treated.

Ugh, melLowstar. You just inadvertantly quoted wolf_boy. I think the "golden rule" includes a provision for what you just said. You're not treating people the way you'd like to be treated in that you're buying them *your* favorite food; you're showing consideration for them the way you'd like consideration shown to you.

Actually, what I really meant was, "Why don't you stop acting like such a bitch to everyone else, if you're tired of having your feelings hurt?"

Attacking someone because of their looks is worse. People are free to choose their religion and people should be free to mock and ridicule them for that choice, people cannot choose their looks though, and so what do you really expect to achieve by attacking them? It's not like they can change their face without extensive plastic surgery.

If they're hypocritical and ignorant jerks, that is.
The flipside, BenS, is that the things we choose because we care about them may have greater meaning for us than things we can't control and therefore shouldn't worry about. If someone doesn't like my face, well, tough; that's what I have to work with. If it's something I chose and care deeply about, that's arguably more personal.

Looks, by far.q
16 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/6/06 - 1:40:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Attacking someone for any unfounded reason is wrong, period.

Who was I being a bitch to? I'm really curious. Am I not supposed to defend my opinions?
Don't fxcking pull that 'bitch' card on me, b/c not even my ARCH ENEMY can say that about me.

Maybe I have you confused with someone else... aren't you a total bitch?
