Can religion be considered a controversial subject?
Can this subject be discussed without any hurling of abuse towards one another of different religions. I normally do not discuss religions, but based on what I have read in Hubpages, I just got curious, and hopefully this question does not get people upset.
religion is a controversial subject always has been always will be
Obviously -- all the religious wackos can post reams of bible quotes here in the Q&A. That is not deemed controversial. Yet I published a few hours ago a question asking what they hope to accomplish with their "appeals to authority" arguments, and stating that they have no valid arguments, someone (or more) squeals like a stuck pig to management, and my question gets deleted.
It can be. But it also can be debated without passionate red herrings or nasty cheap-shots, if people are more sensitive about the other side of the aisle.
It helps when you're open-minded. I like to think my being an atheist for three years allows me to approach the subject with both sides of my brain. So it goes... (as Kurt Vonnegut would say)
to me it is the most controversial subject out there. since no real proof exists about whether god is real an d since most religions are so far from their original meaning it has become a controversy in itself.
It's difficult but it can be done. But religion is based on blind faith and not scientific fact. So when Christians are attacked for not having absolute proof of God, it doesn't matter because they believe in eternal life no matter what.
When I get into discussions about religion, I automatically assume that I will not convince agnostics nor will they convice me. In this way I can stay calm. It's the same with liberals. Although I did get upset when a liberal tried to justify armed drug cartels taking over our national parks.
from my experiences, the reason it's controversial is too many people want to shove their religious beliefs down other people's throats. I don't see any reason for it.

Why do people of different religions constantly argue which is the the "true" religion?It seems like a never ending cycle. It seems like a war of words. I became caught in it at one time myself. I don't know that anyone will ever win it?

Why is there not one god with one message for all mankind?Why should there be vast differences between religions where doctrines and dogma conflict and contradict if there is one god?
