    The hacktivist group Anonymous has declared war against Islamist websites. The French jihadist website ansar-alhaqq.net was taken down for a few hours yesterday. Anon penetrated its CloudFlare protection.

    #OpCharlieHebdo
    #TangoDown

    Anonymous is asking Twitter users to supply information on Islamist/ISIS/AQ websites. The website opcharliehebdo.com is a fake/honey pot. Stay away.

    Anti-equal rights for LGBT

    Anti-women's rights, including contraception and abortion

    Insistence upon importance of one favored religion over all others, using a holy text to 'guide' government
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Anti equal rights for LGBT? Because of a word? That's a stretch. Ridiculous

    Anti women's rights? American "rightists" are against women's rights? What a remarkably bigoted lie.

    Insistence on one religion over others? BS. In fact, the only people insisting on one religion are those who want to ban every belief but their own.


    The kool aid may sell well at your parties, but please don't assume there are takers outside of your group.

    Both empathy and sympathy are feelings concerning other people. Sympathy is literally 'feeling with' - compassion for or commiseration with another person. Empathy, by contrast, is literally 'feeling into' - the ability to project one's personality into another person and more fully understand that person. Sympathy derives from Latin and Greek words meaning 'having a fellow feeling'. The term empathy originated in psychology (translation of a German term, c. 1903) and has now come to mean the ability to imagine or project oneself into another person's position and experience all the sensations involved in that position. You feel empathy when you've "been there", and sympathy when you haven't. Examples: We felt sympathy for the team members who tried hard but were not appreciated. / We felt empathy for children with asthma because their parents won't remove pets from the household. Dictionary.com
    The difference between empathy and sympathy are vast. For instance, you can have empathy for someone, while feeling no sympathy for them.

    Sympathy - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    Full Definition of SYMPATHY

    1
    a : an affinity, association, or relationship between persons or things wherein whatever affects one similarly affects the other
    b : mutual or parallel susceptibility or a condition brought about by it
    c : unity or harmony in action or effect <every part is in complete sympathy with the scheme as a whole — Edwin Benson>
    2
    a : inclination to think or feel alike : emotional or intellectual accord <in sympathy with their goals>
    b : feeling of loyalty : tendency to favor or support <republican sympathies>
    3
    a : the act or capacity of entering into or sharing the feelings or interests of another
    b : the feeling or mental state brought about by such sensitivity <have sympathy for the poor>
    4
    : the correlation existing between bodies capable of communicating their vibrational energy to one another through some medium

    Empathy - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    1
    : the imaginative projection of a subjective state into an object so that the object appears to be infused with it
    2
    : the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner
    The fact that you can empathize without feeling sympathy should make it pretty obvious that the two words shouldn't be confused. Are you really arguing that they are interchangable?

    Are you really trying to argue with someone who merely provided a cut-and-paste from Dictionary. com? Did you not click on the provided link and see that this is what I posted?
    I don't know whether you fancy yourself a semanticist or etymologist or if you're just some undergrad student taking a psych class, but you'll have to quibble with somebody else.
