Politics,pop culture, ans just society in a nutshell have fallen back on religion. Jews fell threaten,Muslims feel threatened,Christians feel threatened,Atheists feel threatened, The religions of the world and America have created a system where all religions feel threatened. Netflix just released a new show making Jesus look like a drug dealer, Muslims feel threatened by anti-Muslim rhetoric here in the USA, Atheists feel threatened as they have ZERO representation in government like America in 1776. Finally, Jews have always feel threatened by Governments and anti-Semites.
We are beginning to see the consequences of this. Because politics and society have completely forgot about religion, it is being left behind. Thus, these religions feel threatened, thus what happened in New York and Texas happens. They wonder these events happen.
In order to create change, we have to stop mocking religion like what Netflix did. We need to make people proud of their religion. Fear is what making all these religious nuts, including atheists to go commit these awful crimes.
