    You will see many more of this kind of event where one openly put
    down another's religion right in one's face as long as the culprit is
    having no knowledge of the world beliefs or scriptures as it is
    known.

    If you have educated yourself either through self study or higher
    religious learning centre, university, the local assembly of like
    minded folks to compare the writings of these messengers, you
    won't disgrace other faiths or look down on them.

    You will give respect to their chosen faith as it is their choice at
    the moment. When one start to go deeper, than it will be a different
    story all together.

    Just an example, in the Christianity, schism came about because
    of human selfishness of wanting to be differently identified, so the
    split of the religious body - well, Protestantism, Anglicanism,
    Roman Catholicism and even a Restorationist movement.

    i suggest you check your fact before putting it out in a public forum. a good place to begin is the NLB - look for church history.

    we are breathing the same oxygen ! came to earth empty handed.. and will go back to earth some day in the same way. .. what so special ?
    There must be one Almighty who has been creating all the "wonderful
    things" for men to see and admire and hear the sound of singing
    birds and the waves of the sea. Photographers are just men who
    happen to like to use the camera device to record these natural
    beauty. Some like to record the beauty of the human forms too.

    Human beings are born selfish and greedy sometimes. These two
    destructive behavious have led them to war, killings, conquering etc
    etc. What is special is that humans did not realise their capacities
    of their higher self. They did not realise that they should live to
    make others happy and joyful. Instead they chose to destroy as
    such "an act of crime to humanity" as in the case of Saddam.

    It is not a matter of sensitivity - as called for "A bridge over
    troubled waters" is a time favourable to discuss the reasons for
    wanting to reach out and get to know each other as the PM said.

    If you are afraid, you don't have to participate in this thread.
    I am just trying to initiate a sincere discussion as to why our
    little island is the first country to have religious harmony among
    the people.

    Generally all religions have good objectives (like bridges)....... it is the interpretation of the messages by selfish Man, that is the troubled water.
    always the Light, .... always.

    Babylon 5 is basically sci-fi.... its basically described as the "last, best hope for peace" among different races and beliefs. Are we trying to be a Babylon 5?....

    Too epic a tale to describe here.... but then again I am just kidding....

    Hi, it is against CS guidelines for Kopitiam to conduct a discussion that centers around religion. Please read the guidelines that is in a sticky thread.

    I am closing this thread, and will be removing it shortly.

    Thanks.
