And that is not faith. It is viewing God as a magical Jini in the sky.

Isn't it presumptuous to claim to know what faith is valid and what faith is invalid?

Oh, I don't know... The fact that I've been a spokesperson for a faith community that views faith as our response rather than our demand, might have something to do with actually speaking on a subject that I have made my living speaking on.... might have some bearing.

I understand what you preach and claim to practice, but still, that the practices of a different parish/cult is any less valid.

You simply cannot know. You have to take it on faith.

Just like the Popes who are supposed to be the infallible word of god and ordered women to be tortured to death were wrong then, so are religion professionals constantly backpeddling now.

Open minded as you are, you are not opposed to planting different crops in the same field... wearing garments of multiple materials?

Lots of stuff religious people took on faith is no longer taken on faith.... it's just a matter of time till more of the things you take on faith fall to the wayside.

Magic, faith.... 2 sides of the same coin.
