Veneration of images such as a crucifix is veneration of the person depicted, and not the actual image in and of itself.)"

Plus if you didn't believe your religion was correct why even pursue it, I mean, have doubt in your own faith I guess if you want.
What does that have to do with what I said? I don't doubt my own religion. I said that I don't believe that people should assume that their religion is the only one.

You guys really havent seen enough of the world to understand true religion. It cracks me up that you all assume to know so much about it, and how broad your knowledge is.

Reading about it in a book is one thing. But going over there, seeing people acting out their religions in person? Thats totally different. Thats how you get a true feel for it all.

You should assume your religion is right tho...Why chose a false path? So they think Christianity is correct, so they will try to convert you so that you will be "saved"...

I agree, part of the reason I don't have a religion. I rather be hated for who I am than loved for someone I am not.

I do assume my religion is right. I'll say it again, believing your religion is right is a given, but your religion being right and your religion being the only right one are not the same thing.

I haven't been to Alaska either. Does that mean I can't read about it in a book, and have a good idea of what it's like?

Oooh, like visiting a mosque...That is the coolest experience ever.

You do have a point. you can read about a religion and its practices all you want, but the key point of any religion are the people. You can't grasp the concept of humanity from the pages of some dusty old book describing the practices of some religion.

You have to be there, be swept up in the emotion and devotion of a people who are sending all their hopes and dreams heavenward in the only way they know how.

Personally, in this whole matter of "saving souls" and "forcing religion" I have to side with the Hindus: All paths lead to the same end.

It doesn't matter what you call your god, or even if you believe in Him as a being. I don't think thats what religion should be about. Like it was already said, it's a way of life, not a deity.

No, there is a difference between thinking you're right and thinking someone else is wrong. Just because i think I've got the right answer to something doesn't mean i can't believe that someone else's solution could be correct too, or at least accept that they have this solution and it works for them.

you can probably have a vague idea, like for example, if i were to explain my certain interpritation of the bible, you could only have a vague idea, experiencing it in person...... is a completely different experience...

If you know you are right the only way they can be right is if they have the same answer...<3 analogies. I accept people for who they are, your religion sexuality and stuff like that doesn't matter to me.

Not necessarily.

What I am saying is that I believe what I believe, and I don't really lose sleep over what other people spend their time doing, as long as they leave me and my loved ones alone. You should believe firmly in whatever it is you believe in, but that is not a choice that can be made for another.
