This Holy Week has me wondering about how respectful we are of different religions. So here are some things to ponder:--Have you heard people put down a religion in front of someone who ascribes to that religion? What religion was it?--Have you ever heard anyone comment that Buddhism, Hinduism, or other Eastern religion is a crock, and anyone who believes in their teachings is "naive" or "ill-informed"?--Have you ever heard anyone be flippant or disrespectful of Jewish religious traditions or holidays?--Have you ever heard anyone openly insult or poke fun at someone for believing in Jesus?--Have you ever heard anyone argue with a Muslim about the accuracy of their religious writings?--Have you ever heard anyone laugh or poke fun at someone for not believing in God at all?These questions could apply to "in-person" and online encounters, even on TMF boards. I do not intend to offend ANYONE here, but am just posing these questions to foster discussion. Just wanted to get people's reactions to these questions and see if there's a pattern in what kinds of religions we treat with more or less respect in our society. Please discuss.
