It's a good thing Utah and BYU fans aren't military superpowers...this is the same $#!+ that starts wars

Let's face the truth, it's the religion that causes all the hate. Some of my best friends are LDS Utah fans. They root for Utah not because they hate their church, because they like football and the closest school to them is Utah.

I know there are Utah fans who are BYU haters first, they really dislike the church and being a Utah fan makes sense to them. The problem is they become the vocal minority and representatives for us as ugly anti-LDS people.

Same thing for blue, there are many BYU fans who are fans simply because of their loyalties to their church. They see a group attacking their team, in any manner football or hate speech, and they feel threatened and fight back. They fight harder because it's their core beliefs that are being attacked. They in turn attack Utah, of course we take offense to it and fight back....on and on until something comes to a head.

The truth is religion feeds all the hate in the world. The only thing I hate, is hate. Learn to accept differences and you'll live a much happier life.

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Rocker Ute icon NEW: That's a pretty broad statement that religion fuels all the hate in the world.

BulgieUte icon NEW: I agree completely and I hate people's use of religion, not religion but the way it's used.

Puget Ute icon NEW: Please explain to me how you could convince a person to blow himself up as a suicide bomber WITHOUT the backdrop of religion to provide the lifelong brainwashing and promise of glory after this life? (nm)

BulgieUte icon NEW: You convince him if he doesn't do it, you will kill his children as punishment. Or you will provide for them in ways he never could as a reward. Which ever gets the job done. (nm)

Virginia Ute icon NEW: I think your view is pretty short sighted. Religion is just one of the many avenues that lead to conflict.
