    So true. After the Boston Bombing, I was inundated with hate feeds from facebook. I couldn't believe that people would hate a whole "race" from one persons actions. I do agree with the hospital asking. That is a totally different ball game.

    Unfortunately this has gone on throughout history, every religion has killed others in the name of God. I do think we are evolving though, we don't feed people to lions anymore at least.

    I certainly hope you are right. I want the age where it doesn't matter what you are, but rather who (or how you act) are. How you treat me is all I care about. I have several friends who are Baptist, and they don't seem to care what I am.

    When a person brings up religion, am I compassionate, understanding, tolerant and openhearted towards them - staying in my center - or do I become as insensitive, opinionated, defensive, and clumsy towards them as I think they are being towards me?

    Somebody in another post mentioned WestBoro Bap. I can understand why people get turned off by Christianity if they are exposed to this church.

    Jared, Westboro is not a Church God would be pleased with. God is love. They are a church of hate.

    A different purpose? One can be Hindu, and the other Jewish, but as long as they respect the others difference they can love each other. This is like saying a Catholic can't marry a Protestant, to me anyway.

    To me, your religion doesn't matter. It is the way you treat me that matter.

    This is where people lose me. I have concern for others who eat junk food, but I don't feel I have to go preach to them why they should stop. Religion is a deeply personal thing I wish people would keep personal unless others specifically ask.

    I do believe it is to impose their beliefs. Otherwise, why bring it up.

    Agreed, bottom line, they are human beings. Their gods reveal themselves only to them. Maybe they can call fire down like Elijah and mock and bully people. Islam will assault you for any offense. Either way, its just books and the follow it blindly.

    So true. Bigotry and judgement are a big factor, I think. They judge you by your religion, instead of who you truly are.

    The belief in anything is the creation of the human mind manipulated over thousands of years until it is accepted as truth. This includes religion, science, physics and mathematics.

    If someone tells me if they have a certain religion (or don't believe) I will not talk much about my Christianity because thye are steadfast if their faith. But if they ask a question I will honestly answer

    Thank you for not feeling you have to convert others. As a non-religious person I respect those who have faith but keep it by being kind to others, not seeking converts.

    I don't think knowing a persons religion will help me know them more. I have a good friend, and I still don't know what religion he is, but I do know he will help you in time of need, and is all around a good friend.

    Can they perform their ritual, and you perform yours? Does this mean one could not be friends, or perhaps marry? I know married couples that are not the same religion, and they have wonderful marriages. Children are usually the mother's religion.

    I do like to learn about other religions. What bothers me, is when they ask and then because you aren't "one of them", they feel they can't be friends with you.

    I agree with you on the converting part, but they can spread their views somewhere else.

    I have to agree with the last part. And that is mainly because religion is part of our history. More and more people are looking to history to know its influence and be informed. This is why the internet is awesome.

    What do they need saving from? I am a good human being. Why do I "need" to be saved?
