It's a connection to reality, not just science. No imaginary beings or magic exist or are required.”

We all share the same reality; unless you have discovered some method of travelling to alternate dimensions that fact will not change... Our experiences inside our reality are merely contextual.”
Now if our experience inside our reality are merely contextual, then this need to be explained
This photo is a perfect example of how people can and will misuse the religious texts to suit their own political ideology/ philosophy...There are many such groups that do this.
Now my question is, and I know this above photo will be blamed under the religious, however in my view this only discredit the people that think this reality is correct and they misuse all resources to achieve their goal, including the Bible.
The question is ...
“Does the evil deeds of people following certain Ideology/ Philosophy discredit only themselves or the whole ideology/philosophy?”
Two examples, The Apartheid government and those who opposed them (using Freedom) did evil deeds against others. This will only discredit the individuals, and not the whole Ideology/ Philosophy, because freedom doesn't harm people, people harm other people...
The other one is the multiple stories about people within religion like RCC priests that do evil things to children. It shouldn't discredit religion or God, but just that individual commiting those crimes.
We have to stop blaming and generalizing the crimes and deeds of so few to judge so many...
If those deeds commited in distinct conflict to whatsoever that ideology/ philosophy teaches, then we have to separate that for the rest of the ideology/philosophy and not blame the whole group.
