Should People Be Judged By Their Religion?
Debate Rounds (2)
OK, well first, let's define "judge", "judged" and "judging"
Judge: "form an opinion or conclusion about." (I used google definition)
Judged: Sam as above
Judging: Same as above
So let's break your argument down; You say that people should not make an opinion or form a conclusion about people who believe in religion. Am I right so far?
"They make fun of them for believing things that they think is ridiculous."
This is not judging, this is harassment or ridicule. "Judge" and "Ridicule" are not synonymous.
"Why did Jews and Christians have to be killed in the earlier times?"
I'm not sure what you mean by this. How is this related to judging people for their religion?
The question is "Should people be judged by their religion"
Or in other words "Should people form opinions about other people based on their religion"
This is subjective. Anyone can form an opinion about anything, which is judging. You seem to think judging is on par with ridicule, but it is not. Therefore, people should be free to judge and form opinions about anyone, including religious people.
Judging is forming an opinion. Technically, I can judge the colour red: I think it's the best colour ever.
I can also judge religious people: Religious people suck (this is just an example)
Therefore, the way you judge something or someone is subjective to that person. To say that it is wrong to form opinions about someone/something is ridiculous and also judging.
Though judging CAN turn into prejudice and harassment, to say that is what normally happens would be generalising and opinionated.
