Thread: respect every religion

  1. #1
    Religion is a belief, just like any other. I may believe in the Easter bunny, but I wouldn't demand that everyone respect that belief. Of course, they won't get any milk chocolate or colored eggs, but that's their own problem.
    As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.

    Huh.....in certain countries where the government, etc, is shall we say operating via the quran,,,,,
    Jews, christians and any other religion are not allowed, persecuted, blah blah blah.

    Yet certain of the countries have the freaking nerve to complain about other countries (pick a non-muslim country) not allowing, respecting, etc, the muslims!

    Okay, that is it from me, because otherwise, I will tear into them people big time....

    Even in a total Sharia state, there should be a respected (confined) space for people of other religions. This, at least is the interpretation of many Muslims.
    In reality when there's religious extremism, there are problems.

    Saudi Arabia allows Christians to enter the country as foreign workers for temporary work, but does not allow them to practice their faith openly.

    International Christian Concern (ICC) protested what it reported as the 2001 detention of 11 Christians in Saudi Arabia, for practicing their religion in their homes.

    Christians and other non-Muslims are prohibited from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina, Islam's holiest cities.

    Currently there are no official churches in Saudi Arabia of any Christian denomination

    The percentage of Saudi Arabian citizens who are Christians is officially zero, as Saudi Arabia forbids religious conversion from Islam (Apostasy) and punishes it by death (Capital punishment in Saudi Arabia).

    What the hello is "emo"??? I don't know but don't go dressed up as "emo" to Iraq or you will get stoned to dealth.Iraq militia stone youths to death for "emo" style
    At least 14 youths have been stoned to death in Baghdad in the past three weeks in what appears to be a campaign by Shi'ite militants against youths wearing Western-style "emo" clothes and haircuts, security and hospital sources say.Six other young people, including two girls, were wounded in beatings intended as warnings, the security sources said.

    Shouldn't we all focus on what we have in common instead of fighting the differences? Jesus Christ is a character that appears in the Quran as well but there's an argument with the Bible about his descendancy. Christians as well as Jews are 'people of the book' ; perhaps Saudi Arabia is banning them because of other motives.

    You are so right. Even better to focus on economic output. There's so much hunger and need in the world. Yet, there are millions of people focused on destroying civilization.

    It's very difficult for a non-Muslim to live in a majority Muslim country. But Muslims do well in Europe, US & Canada and even South America. There's even over 1 million Muslim citizens of Israel. But not one Jew can live in places like Saudia Arabia, Libya or Gaza.

    I guess it depends also on the country and it's inhabitants. The Middle East seems to be strict (although I can't speak out of experience) but I've spent a couple years happily in some African Muslim (>90% pop.) countries where they let foreigners 'live and let live'.
