  • Is it okay to say ” I respect the people from this religion more than I respect the people from that religion”?

    Question by Hodaya: Is it okay to say ” I respect the people from this religion more than I respect the people from that religion”?
    If I said, ” I respect Hinduism more than I respect Buddhism”, which reply would be more appropriate from a Hindu:

    a) Thanks!
    or
    b) I think people should be repsected for who they are, not for what religion they follow.

    What do you think?

    I think it’s highly inappropriate to judge people for what religion they follow. Sure there are fundamentalist Muslims, but I still respect Muslims and Islam. Sure there are fundie Christians that wish to convert me, yet I still respect Christians and Christianity.

    No religion is perfect, and people should be judged individually, not through generalisation. I respect Jews, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, etc etc. Because we have something good to learn from in each tradtion.
    Chick-a-deester : Thanks! 🙂 Okay, I guess you make a good point in your answer.
    Mama Pajama: You may have guessed that my question was indirectly referring to that post ” Are there more atheists like me who respect Judaism more than they do Christianity?”
    🙂
    Mama Pajama: Perhaps I am mistaken. I am sorry if that offended you as a Jew. But that question offended me on behalf of the Christians. Paperback and angels have only thumbs up because they just said thank you, while I brought Christians into this.

    Anyway, Mama, in this post I’m not referring t white supremacist groups which are OBVIOUSLY concerning and horrible. I am referring to basic religions, such as Judaism and Christianity.
    My, Paperback, when I saw that you starred this I was already scared of what you were going to say!:-) I remember you were really mad at Alfred J. Kwak because of some things she said, even though she’s respectful to Jews.
    So I was surprised to see that your answer is so …tame. LOL.
    Ookay, enough about Messianics already. I think by now we all know that you don’t like them, and that they’re Christian evangelists. I do not ask you to respect them.

    I am asking, did you think it was perfectly alright for the poster to have said he respects Jews more than he respects Christians? Try to think objectively. What if his statement was reversed ( okay , it often is ,but anyway)?
    *********************************

    Yes, people, I did read the question. And I did read mama Pajama’s answer, and Mama, i appreciate your comment about the Christians. But your comment was the only one of its kind on that page. I know the ‘asker’ was saying that he respects Jews more because they never tried to convert them, but I disagree that Christians should be respected less simply because of OTHER Christians who do not behave very…er.. appropriately.

  • What makes “Neo-Pagan” different from just “Pagan”?

    Question by Aware_of_the_Owl: What makes “Neo-Pagan” different from just “Pagan”?

    Answer by Wicked Warrior
    You got me, I would say three letters and a little dash thing. I would hazard a guess that people use it to differentiate themselves from the entire lifestyle of the old faiths. Perhaps as a way of saying, ‘this is my religion, I do not live hand to mouth and I carry a credit card.’

  • Q&A: If Easter is “pagan”, why is the term for “Easter” derived from the term “Passover” in most languages?

    Question by Yamster Berry’s Buddy: If Easter is “pagan”, why is the term for “Easter” derived from the term “Passover” in most languages?
    The Christian holiday “Easter” is only known as such in Germanic-languages (of which English is one.) Romance languages call “Easter” some variation of “pascha” or, in non-Romance languages, the term for “Easter” is “The Great Day” or “Resurrection Day.” The Holiday of Passover comes from the Hebrews painting blood on their doors in Egypt so the Angel of Death would “passover” their houses. It is Abrhamic by nature, therefore not Pagan.

    The Pagan “bunny” and all that stuff is just Hallmark marketing crap.
    Ivy, you didn’t read my question…

    Question by Bonkers B: What is buddhism, and where did it come from?
    In my world studies class, were learning about buddhism, and a bucket load of other religions.

    Can any one break down “buddhism” in a 4 sentence summary?

    Answer by Riaz
    It’s an offshoot of Hinduism. Created by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha in India. It believes all life is sacred and individuals contain both good and bad and must constantly have an inner struggle towards enlightenment until they attain Nirvana in this or a next life.
