  1. I wonder if the “religious leaders” realize that for many years they have taught that if a person doesn’t “believe” the way “we”(people of any particular faith) believe, that person is going to “burn in hell”… After a difference of opinion on the teachings of the Bible, I actually had a “nice Baptist” lady tell me that I (and all those in my religion) were probably going to spend eternity in hell! NO JOKE, she condemned millions because we don’t believe the doctrines HER faith teaches… It’s the fault of every pastor/priest for teaching this God dishonoring hatred…
