Why is religion this magical concept that is taken out of the circle of ideas that are allowed to be questioned?
Some of the ideologies may harm others not the whole religion,and one should try to remove those evil ideologies rather than disrespecting the whole religion. ur religion does not have any harmful idealogy which may harm others, then u don't start disrespecting ur religion....
Every idea/believe is subject to ridicule and thus so is religion. Just because you hide an idea under the guise of a religion doesn't make it immune from scrutiny. To expand on Brynn's point, that ridicule isn't of the person who holds those beliefs, simply the beliefs themselves. The belief in Muhammad, Jesus, the flying spaghetti monster, etc... is no different than a belief in Humanism, Nihilism, etc.... they're ideas that can be argued based on their own merits and should only be "respected" in so far as they are logically valid. However, insulting the person who holds those believes is not ok.
yes, we should respect other religion its because we have different religions too.
ohkay I agree (that there are some beliefs)...but as if they are paying respect to your religion than how could you even...
some ideologies can harm others , they should be exposed
Like Brynn said, you don't HAVE to respect an idea. I do believe that you should respect most ideas and belief systems, though. I do think there are some beliefs that don't deserve to be respected.
No. You never have to respect an idea but you should always respect the person.
