I just don't see the point in telling you anything, No matter what I said you wouldn't believe it, and I don't really care what you think. Soooo =P

@FoxxFireArt:
If you can make a believeable answer for my question why wouldn't I believe it?  You claim that some people liked your article, and yet no one else defended the article's content.  That's all I am saying.,

@FoxxFireArt: You know what just hit me!
There are some bibles (and I know this because I am a religious person) where god's name is changed, like instead of actually translating the name, what they do is put a title over it like "almighty" or "lord".
 
I'm not comparing VIZ to Bible translators, but in my investigation I found out this was because priests in churches wanted to mislead people into thinking god was more of a symbol or title rather than an actual being. 
 
Where I'm going with this is that maybe VIZ is using a title to mislead people, from the god term. Trying to change their way of seeing the character. A god can be feared, but a character with a "title" could just as well be goofy.
IDK... Just a conclusion... XP

Absolutely, people are always looking to the Islamic faith and saying they are over sensitive, but a lot of people don't realize that the Catholic/Christian faiths don't permit so much as saying the name of god, because that counts as taking the name in vain. Not just in cursing. That's partly the reason why when I quoted Exodus at the beginning I used the Jehovah.

Wow can you be any less of a jerk?  I never mock a person's beliefs, I merely question them.

Don't bother running after him Sora. He's too far gone for that.

Yeah after I re-read your article I noticed that you used 'Jehovah'... That's brave of you! That usually means rocks thrown to you in olden times! lol!
 
I totally agree with you! I find it so weird that using a name would mean taking it in vain... I would consider it more of a sign of respect.
I mean I would prefer for my named to be called out rather than "Hey You!" which is actually just a title, there's nothing wrong with that title.. cause I am me but I prefer my name.
 
I believe it's the same with god, the title of god is not wrong but why butcher a name when it can be used....
We should show our conversation to VIZ, so we can make a point in not fearing the word GOD! XD

@sora_thekey: 
It's not that brave. I mean, that's the way it was basically written. It's kind of contradictory to say that someone shouldn't say something while printing you shouldn't say something.
I'm much more of a science based person.
 
Lot of thins I would like to say to VIZ would probably involve a generous helping of four lettered words. lol

@sora_thekey:  
Actually, I quoted Exodus to give a sense of concept.

I wouldn't say that I don't believe in god. I don't believe in religion. More so the people that run them. Often times and throughout history religious orders have been run by the most corrupt and hypocritical people possible.
 
Look at the Crusades as an example. Catholic bishops would tell armies that they were absolved of all their sins if all they did was go to war and slaughter as many non-Catholics as possible. That if they were killed in this war it would mean they would instantly go to heaven.
More recently. The Catholic church hid hundreds of child sex offenders in it's ranks just so they wouldn't look bad. They were more concerned with their power over people and appearances then the fact men in their ranks had abused children.
 
Don't even get me started on politicians who call America, "God's Country". As if god somehow favors this small strip of land over everywhere else in the entire universe, because it's often run by self important, sexually repressed white men. God is not on our side. We should strive to be on god's side.

@sora_thekey: 
Well, I just believe that religion should be something personal to you. A person shouldn't be flaunting their religion, shoving it into other people's faces, and telling them that they are wrong just because they have different beliefs.

@FoxxFireArt: Telling other people they are wrong is... well wrong. Basically since we have free will, we decide what one whats to believe!

Which basically falls into line with the teachings of Rene Descartes. "Cogito ergo sum".

@sora_thekey: 
Actually, it's Latin for "I think therefore I am".
Since we can think. We have the free will to both doubt or believe. That's proof that we exists.
 
I didn't realize it was your birthday. Happy birthday!!
