Peace, respect, ethics and dignity come from within. Western religion corrupts those values. The mere idea that some should be free to impose their faith upon others is a base corruption of those values. It spirals wildly downhill from there.

"Calls in Sudan for execution of Briton"
My Way News - Calls in Sudan for Execution of Briton

The people of your "faith" are in the streets, with knives and weapons, howling and baying for blood and death. (yet again!!!)

....because the teacher allowed Muslim children to vote on the name for a toy!!!

That is not "GOOD, peaceful, respectful and dignified", by any measure.

Or maybe it IS to you.

Others would probably call it a manifestation of a sick, twisted perverted manifestation of a "Religion".

The violence over the Danish cartoons, the nun who was killed because the Pope mentioned the religion was violent.

Examples are legion.

Go peddle your "GOOD, peaceful, respectful and dignified" view of Islam someplace else, you aren't fooling anyone here.

Buh bye

Religion is universal? That's just silly. What religion is my dog? My dog doesn't believe that other dogs are bound to ignorance and damnation by virtue of some silly, meaningless abstract concept trapped within the confines of his little dog-brain. (At least, that's what he tells me.)

Western religion as opposed to Eastern Religion. If you don't grasp the terms, look them up. Christianity, Judaism and Mohammadism represent a single faith, divided by minutia.

heh, heh.......Further clarification of Western/Eastern Religions.




Understanding Others.

We study different religious faiths in order to understand other people. Many people have strong religious convictions, and it would be impossible to understand them without first understanding their beliefs.
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are monotheistic faiths practiced by about half of the world’s population. Monotheism refers to the belief in one God. The faiths are often called western religions to distinguish them from the eastern religions practiced primarily in Asia. Believers in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are found on every populated continent, but tend to be concentrated in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Western Asia and North Africa. Christianity and Islam are growing influences in sub-Saharan Africa, often replacing indigenous faiths.
While western religions are centered on the belief in one God, many believers of eastern religions seek to find enlightenment by looking within themselves. Hinduism and Buddhism are popular faiths in India, Southeast Asia, and Japan. Shinto is the traditional religion of many Japanese people, but the practice of Shintoism has declined since Japan’s defeat in World War II. Since becoming a communist nation in 1949, China has discouraged religion. Many people in China practice the teachings of Confucius. Confucius was not a religious leader, but he was a wise man who was concerned with how people treated one another. Taoism is another philosophy centered in China. Indigenous religions are practiced throughout the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Indigenous faiths are often animistic. Animism is the belief that natural objects, natural phenomena, and the universe itself possess souls or consciousness. This is similar to the traditional beliefs of the Native Americans in North and South America. People are often mistreated for their beliefs. In the last century as many as six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. Religious conflicts persist in Ireland, the Middle East and in many other parts of the world. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 are likely the result of religious conflicts. By understanding one another, we can hope to develop tolerance and respect for all people.

So then it's not universal? 'Cause either my dog is in this universe, or I'm not. And, we're an awful lot alike.
