Religious people believe in live and let live What does it mean? It means religious tolerance. take a street, if residents belong to different religion they treat and love one another as human beings belong to one God. As far as i am conerned,religion is a subject. We learn and follow it in order to keep away from evils. We should not think our religion is superior to other religions. If we learn to respect all the religions which are created for our sake then there will be no problem. I would like to know your views about this...

I completely agree with you. Religion shouldn't be something that sets us apart, but something that makes us similar because we all believe in something bigger than ourself.

Suba, I agree with your views that one should have liberty to choose and practice his religion and we should not interfer in other's religion. But on the other hand, if we scruplously follow our religion, our relisious ceremonies, should not make others uncomfortable. Good Post! Have a nice day! Deepak

Abraham Lincoln: When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion. Mahatma: An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind. Is this not enough about religion Subathra?

Well said. "Religion is a subject", I like that. Once all the people of the world understands this, I think there wont be any conflicts among the people. Just like people study different subjects, but dont think their field is the best, they will also wont think that their religion is the best when they know this.

You are right my friend but sadly most of the people donot understand the true meaning of religion.They are constantly fighting in the name of religion & killing peoles from other religion as you can see around the world.Even good educated people fail to understand that religion is just a philosophy which makes us God fearing so that we all can remain god people.For years now people have been used in the name of religion to kill each other.The number of rights are its testimony.I really hope that people understand thses things & become a good citizen.Then only i think the problem of terrorism will end.

Yes, religion-is just a guidance which makes us to lead a healthy and peaceful life, with certain habits which could be cultivated in a group to form unity and make our life comfortable. That's all it is. But people mistake it other way round. We are one creation by god as human, why to stick on man made rules and fight. Why not lead an example to a peaceful life so that a group follows you accepting all other groups understanding the basic fact that we are all one. I agree to you completely.

I agree with you that if we only respect each others religion and dont think that one is greater than the other religion we will be having no problem. We belong all to God and we are all created by God so everybody should just respect each of ones religions.

I believe that sometimes, live and let live is indeed a form of love; seeing there are times when one can only love certain people by leaving them alone!

I liked studying different religions when I was at school. I respect the ideas of all religious people. When I was a teenager I visited a synagogue and thought it was very interesting to find out about the Jewish faith. Later in my life I have been lucky enough to see others in the Czech Republic and Poland. The highlight though was seeing the Western Wall in Jerusalem. I have seen many beautiful mosques as well. I saw the stunning Dome of the Rock. In the Maldives I saw the amazing Grand Friday mosque and a tiny mosque that I could see into because the door was open. I wish all religions would respect one another. It would be lovely if all the world could be peaceful.

Living and let others too ... there is no religious undertones attached to it. That is my belief . You are earning to LIVE a comfortable life ...while desiring it, do not spoil others' chances of gaining their means to LIVE.

I think you've got that wrong. its the NON-religious people who believe in live and let live. Religious people tend to judge others by the standards of their own religious beliefs.
