Christians Only?

Guest Writer


This is fiirty. I just have to express my feelings about something. I was shocked as I was reading The Times. I read Mckenzie's opinion about hoping that the people who died in the terrorist attacks were all Christians. I myself am a Baha'i and Baha'i's believe in all religions and they believe in peace in the world and that all are equal.

One day, I went to school just like any other day and was playing on the monkey bars. I was about 8 or 9 years old and someone asked me, "Are you a Christian?" I replied, "No", for that was the truth. She said, "Then you will go to hell." It made me feel so sad. I went home that day crying.

Do you think that Jesus really wanted us to say those sorts of things? If this Jesus was a wonderful person and nice to all, do you think he believed that if you were not his religion he would want you to go to hell? Well, I don't think so. This is just my opinion. I'm not saying don't be a Christian. Christianity is a wonderful religion, and so are all religions.

It's great to believe strongly in your religion, but it is not okay to push it onto others or to make them feel bad. This is one of the things that causes people to start wars; when they try to make others believe in what they believe. We must accept people for who they are and not what they believe.

This is fiirty signing off.

Mckenzie Apologizes

Hey peeps~! Mckenzie here. I heard many complaints on my article about the Twin Towers and hoping the people who died were Christians.

I know there are many different beliefs and religions here on Whyville, and if I offended any people on my hoping these people were Christians, I want to apologize. I know I should not have said that, and I didn't think about other peoples feelings before I wrote that.

I will not do that again, and I do hope that all of you will forgive me and my big mouth. If you don't wish to forgive me, who cares? It's part of life. You can tease me and taunt me and call me a freak as much as you want. I don't mind. Anyway, before my big mouth goes off again, I want to apologize once again.

This is Mckenzie, going, going, gone, but not forever.
