Why is Religion such a Controversial Topic?

    Why can't everyone be entitled to their own beliefs, without someone from a different religion insulting the others beliefs and religion?

      I look at religion in the same way that I view politics, product commercials, etc - none of them are ever happy with their own 'bit' in life.  Instead, they want to ram their own religion/product/political opinion, etc, down everyone elses throats.  Muslims believe the world should be Muslim, so they oppose every other religion.  Jehova's Witnesses aren't satisfied with the millions of followers they've already got - they want to 'recruit' everyone else, and bad mouth everyone else's religions.  It will always be the same, and it's a pity, because religion is one of the main causes of most of the wars in history.

      I am not sure insults are limited to Religious topics. Go to any site where one can comment and you will no doubt find the insults slung back and forth. Youtube is one that comes to mind.
