Why do religious people put capitalized letters randomly in their sentences where they don't belong?

Posted by: discomfiting

A lot of the time I see religious people writing and they use capital letters randomly in the middle of their sentences where they don't belong. I really don't understand it at all.

Note: I know it's not all of them that do it but a lot of them that I see do it.

Do you mean like capitalizing God or something like this: I am a Religious Person and thus I believe that God exists and You will never be Able to Change my Mind.

The second one. I was talking to somebody and he was like "All satanists will Burn in hell". I see things like that all the time.

If you mean capitalizing pronouns referring to deities, this isn't random and actually can remove ambiguity. It is also out of respect for the deities which, and, let's face it, if God exists, S/He might be worth some respect.

I think this is a gross generalization. I have never seen ANYONE apply inappropriate use of case here at debate.Org. Well, i might just be having a bit of fun here. Maybe it's because you don't have the RIGHT to disagree with them, and it makes them ANGRY?

Discomfiting: I've never seen that before, it sounds really odd though.

That wasn't an exact quote; I actually snipped it and here it is. https://31.media.tumblr.com/c685a6c655bc67348b4b94dba35ae9b6/tumblr_n8zw0vlugK1twzlryo1_400.png

Please tell me you're not turning in to an anti-theist.

Just looked at the link, WTF.

It has nothing to do with religion. Correlation doesn't equal causation.

These are biased and inaccurate answers.

It sounds stupid and dumb. If you have to yell to prove your point you have already lost the argument. . . .
Kreakin says2014-07-20T11:13:30.3675733-05:00
Don't Dsylexic people do this?
discomfiting says2014-07-20T11:15:05.3734003-05:00
Lovehismom, boohoo, cry me a river. There's a "other" for a reason. It's not anti-theist, it's a serious question.
discomfiting says2014-07-20T11:22:45.0206395-05:00
Gross generalization eh? Can you not read? Are you blind? The first comment was a disclaimer by me saying "Note: I know it's not all of them that do it but a lot of them that I see do it."

"It sounds stupid and dumb. If you have to yell to prove your point you have already lost the argument. . . ." Arguments in middle school are won when the other person gets angry. Hopefully most arguments between adults involve trying to figure out who is right and wrong.
