  • Ignoring is not healing, or love

    By the context of the proposed question, I believe a more accurate word to describe the person in question is a "Heretic", or in biblical terms, a "Pharisee".

    Take note of how every influential religious leader- Such as John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, perhaps even Dr. King did not at any point Ignore the problem, but instead worked to fix it.
    Jesus Christ Preached the Truth against the Pharisees who in many ways fit the description given. Jesus Christ did not ignore them, nor is it loving to ignore the heresy of a loved one.

  • Ignorance breeds evil.

    ISIS came by due to people ignoring their hateful ideology.

    If you ignore them you are basically saying that it's okay for such evil and hateful rhetoric to go on unchallenged.

    Let me give you a real life example. Do you remember the Nazis? They were ignored by Europe until it was too late. Ideologies can be dangerous, don't let them spread unchallenged unless you want your community to suffer the disease of their infestation.

    Stand your ground and challenge these scum back. Show them that it isn't okay to spread their destructive ideology. It is up to regular people like you and me to police and maintain our communities. Organize groups and publicly shame them for what they say, logically pick apart their arguments with reasoning and evidence.

    Failing to address them will lead to the problem growing.

  • Ignoring perpetuates the problem

    Realistically, whether people like it or not, these people are representatives of their faith. People of the faith should be even more willing and likely to call out problem behaviours in their own community, instead of ignoring or hiding the issues and perpetuating the horrible stereotypes.

    Granted, most religious texts preach a mixture of horrible things with their supposedly 'good' religious tenets, making one question whether the people are actually being hypocrites in this regard, or being truer to the religion than the moderates.

    Technically, the WBC is one of the most christian organizations going, based on actually following what the bible preaches.
