Is the problem the judgers or the source of judgement?

For example, if people believe that one religion is better over another and constantly hold a superior viewpoint on it, do you believe that they are creating the problem as opposed to the religion? I believe everyone has a right to be/believe in whatever they want as long as they don't go out of their way to harm anyone, and I believe that it's people who judge others for their religion, race etc who are the real problem. I'd love to hear your thoughts...

No religion in this world teaches you to be arrogant or voilent. Religious people are not a threat to any society only those who are overly sensitive reagarding their religion are! ;) peace all

I'm just using religion as an example, I'm also talking about racism etc. But you're right about the overly sensitive people, when someone thinks their religion, race etc is superior, than come the problems.

I heard from my friend who was in Africa (mission) that we all are children of the same God. Bible is good piece of history(or theory)document but there is no absloute true on planet Earth. Low tolerance is most of the time=low knowledge, low education.

I agree, I hate ignorance in people. I don't really trust the Bible (I'm a Catholic myself) Like I say, God handed down the 10 Commandments but man wrote the Bible...I mean the Adam and Eve story was written to make women look bad, and the story of Christmas was altered.

I agree. I think that story of Adam and Eve is sort of true. Eve gave Adam "knowlegde", shown in many old symbols as a fruit (apple). Aren't we Superior?

I don't care about religions. They only made my life harder. All I want is to be happy and not be told by religious people I am always the wrong one. I am a catholic and my girlfriend is muslim. People say muslims are mean to catholics and I never saw this. It is my catholic church that didn't allow me to marry her and her family was supportive, but my mother wasn't. I don't want to be a muslim either just to marry her. Because of the troubles we were not togther when the war began and she had to flee to Syria with her family and I am now in Kuwait to finsih my school. If religious people didn't always think they know everything then maybe people would have a happier life.

I agree, this 'my religion is right and yours isn't' doesn't help anyone. Why can't everyone practice whatever religion they want without being told they're wrong, or being generalised?

I agree with you. Nobody should impose their religion on others, we're free to do whatever we want.
