Would you lie about your religion to avoid social discrimination?

Yes

Side Score: 8
VS.

No

Side Score: 9

I don't lie about my beliefs, but I am not always forthcoming about them. I am careful in which situations I reveal my beliefs (or lack thereof). Especially in the Army there is, even today, religious based discrimination. I know my ailing grandmother would not take to well to my beliefs, but In social situations I have no problem letting people know how I feel.

I'm pretty much like this. I don't offer the information unless it is necessary to defend my beliefs. Which are somewhat lacking, like yours it seems.

I always feel like I'm upvoting you on everything, you say what I want to before I get the chance -_-'

I never immediatly admit to being a Christian, not because I'm afraid of social discrimination but because I don't want people to assume that all my opinions from then on will be biased.

Side: yes

Only when it comes to multiple people, but not only about me. It fascinates me because of what others do not find me, but I do not want an instigator of other people's problems.

Not really. My nihilistic, atheist views just make me more desirable to others, if anything. You see, I have this image (to people I know IRL) of an eccentric, yet intelligent, controversial person who is always going to make the most outrageous (yet, most defended) claim. I do not start controversy; I just let it come naturally to me. My beliefs, in it of themselves, can really get people feathered... but for some reason, they still love me.

I hope that I become famous so that this becomes more Nationalized. I really want to piss off a bunch of people but get a huge following.

Side: No

Maybe we'll duke it out on national television one day, your post is similar in essence to the one I would of made.

Side: No

sometimes being a coward is the best thing to do. I hate to be socially discriminated. It has happen to me on here and in real life. And in my opinion, i don't want to go back there unless it is something that i believe in strongly.

No offense, man, but it's your own fault. You put controversial (sick and retarded) issues right out there under our nostrils and act the victim when they come after you kicking you into next week. How can you blame them when you do such a stupid thing so many times and even laugh at them when they have every reason to be offended? I offered you support (sent you posts on your debates) to get you out of the mess (sick-ass mess) you are in and even provided a private debate which you promptly ignored (more than once I offered) and kept on acting like no one has offered help. I stuck up for you in the debate that decided whether or not to un-ban you and provided a decent argument for you. You were brought back (thanks to me and all the others who argued for you) and here you are still ignoring me yet continuing to act like a poor little bullied boy? You know what? Fuck you. I'm glad you get discriminated - cowards are all the same and they deserve every fist of shit coming to them. You clearly didn't want help like you spoke about and you clearly didn't want to see why which was what you were ALWAYS asking so just piss off because quite frankly I'm sick to bloody death of seeing your weak-ass posts everywhere.

No.. I have been discriminated.. Sometimes deprived of my rights. The scores that my teacher awarded me were sometimes based on the religion I follow and not on the content. I was basically kicked out of a national parade camp because of the religion that I followed. The project that I've worked on and later on won a place was initially thrown over my face mocking my religious believes behind my back. But, I don't really fear that anymore because the World is a mixture of Morons and good people. If I encounter some bad stuff, I've also met some of the most wonderful open minded people in my life.

So I don't think you should be scared. There is a lot more good on this planet. And if you fall they'll pick you up.

No. I speak candidly in order to guarantee it. :).........................

Nobody should have to 'bowdlerise' what they say in order to avoid receiving something that is against the law to receive.

Another reason could be that the people who do show discrimination will get what they deserve in punishment.

Embarrassment is not what I meant. I mean, would you lie to avoid rudeness from others, and attack from others.

Side: yes
