In Response To: Words Can Hurt... :VID: (SEspider)

I don't come here very often anymore, what with Destiny and DBO now. But I check in every once in a while just to see what people are talking about. I'm glad I did :)

: The other night there was a lot of making fun of homosexuals. I don't agree with the
: lifestyle but I'm not about to bash nor make fun of them. And neither
: should you. Some of us here are in fact homosexuals and I am proud to call
: them my friends.

: A few nights later the bashing started again but this time is was against
: Christians and other forms of faiths. Being a dedicated Christian myself,
: this bashing really struck a nerve with me. Hoping it wouldn't last past a
: few bashes (cause I can handle that), I kept quiet. But sadly it just kept
: going on and on. I spoke up (finally) but my words were lost in the noise
: of all 15 of you joining in on the bashing. It does not matter who you
: bash, for it ALWAYS ends up hurting/upsetting someone. We are all
: friends here and we all come from different backgrounds. And thus we
: should All Respect Each Others' Backgrounds And Feeling!

Being a Catholic and a Christian myself, I agree wholeheartedly with all of the above. Even though you don't respect what a person does, how they live their lives, even if you believe that it is wrong/immoral/stupid, that doesn't change the fact that they are human just like you and deserving of the same amount of respect you would give yourself. "...Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." If you really believe that the way someone lives is wrong, and I'm talking morally wrong, not different-wrong or stupid-wrong, then there is way and a place to respectfully address that issue. Multiplayer matchmaking doesn't seem to me to be the place for that.

: I'm asking you I'm begging you all to PLEASE show some respect
: toward others and one another. Show the world why the Halo Community is
: the best in community ever!

I would stretch this to include the Bungie Community :) but, yes we all need to respect eachother. And major kudos to those that already do. I am amazed sometimes reading through threads at the maturity and intelligence and respect of some of the members. You guys are awesome, and make my love of Halo and Bungie that much more meaningful.
