    Stereotyping is wrong, noone (hopefully) is arguing otherwise here. But it is not "as bad" really. Unlike sexuality, religion is something you choose. Your religious feelings can be quite strong, but ultimately you choose to be religious and you choose a religion for yourself among many existing ones or you make your own. Religiousness is an opinion. Sexuality is a psychological characteristic (or whatever).

    Also, stereotyping people as for example intolerant or intellectually inferior is probably not as bad as stereotyping them as worthy (or indeed deserving) of dying. That's not to say either is acceptable.

    Stereotyping is wrong, that much is absolutely clear.

    You are only 15, could be here another 80 years, pretty strong statement to say you must be defensive you have to be. I would say try to not build up that brick wall so high to protect yourself, you could lock yourself inside where no sunlight can ever come in.

    #1 thing I read in Christian and Jewish books: God is love. Just keep Love in mind, as hate can't come near it.
