This has got to be be one of the most offensive posts I've seen in a long time.

Is it fair to suggest that anyone who is engaged in a spiritual journey of discovery, which includes questioning the authenticity of organized religious beliefs be branded ignorant or a paedophile in heat?
Or is it fair to suggest that adherents of other religions who do not accept Jesus Christ as a historical figure or as their saviour also be branded ignorant or a paedophile in heat?

A "paedophile in heat" is a VERY strong and INAPPROPRIATE term to use as far as intentions go, for a Zen Bhuddist, Taoist or a Hindu. Even a Bahai would be offended by such remarks.

Under these circumstances, it seems to me that this thread should have been deleted when it started. It is an insult to every other religious belief system which, btw, represents 3/4 of the world's population.
