Some friends and I have been having religious debates,via social media, for well over the past two years. It gets heated from time to time, but we always ended on a good note. Yesterday things did not end well. My argument, from the beggining, has always been ridicule towards the sanction of the ideology in question and never about the individual. Well, yesterday my individual character was attacked and the reason I was given was, "Your attack against religion is an attack on the person.", Does anyone else find truth in this notion? Is ridicule of an idea ridicule to an individual? Should we remain " PC" in all debates in fear of someone getting their feelings hurt? In other words, Should we baby people?
