Ok, here's the story: One day about a year ago on another forum site, someone called me a terrorist because I had a religion. Well, this person didn't exactly outright say it. Instead he said that I am the type of person that would crash an airplane into a building, which is essentialy saying that I am a terrorist. All because I have a religion. And you know what, I was deeply offended! I'm still offended to this day because of that; those words rest deep in my soul. It's just a good thing he didn't say that to my face! But I figured I wasn't the only one in the world who had been offended that way. I had heard the news reports about religious people across America being persecuted because "they're the one's responsible for 9/11." So this morning I finally got sick of emotionally dealing with this incident and did the right thing. I sent a message to Merriam-Webster asking that they clearly draw the line somewhere between what fanaticism is and isn't. I mean some people just don't seem to understand and think that fanaticism is simply having a religion and that those people are all bad, which is not true. So I helped Merriam-Webster draw the line by giving them a proper definition for the word 'fanaticism': the act of commiting a crime in the name of religion or a higher being. I think that draws the line very clearly between being zealous and overzealous. Hopefully this will help change the use of the word fanaticism in our daily language and change the feelings of those who would persecute religious folks. Here's to praying. . .
