I make an attempt at a very personal level to try and remove these misconceptions that people have about each other's faith. Sadly, what I've been getting in return is nothing but flames. I wish these discussions could be 100% positive in their outlook and people could discuss the issues with an open mind.
Its not the religion but the people who are to blame.

I strongly disagree with the assertion that religion cannot be wrong. Religion is but a creation of man and man is not perfect, so no religion is perfect. All religions were created keeping in mind the needs and necesseties of the people of those times and they may not always suit modern mans needs or confirm the modern outlook. It is upto us to question them and adopt only the best practices while rejecting the worst practices.

I remember going to a temple and not standing when the aarti was going on. I didn't mean any disrespect. A lady came up to me and asked me to stand. I was so cheesed off, I just walked out from there. No one tells me how I need to pray to God.
I guess u need to rename the topic and change it to "a zillionth discussion on religion."
U said all u see here is discussions on religion and now u are continuing one.
Yaar, is religion the only thing to discuss?? A frnd active on this DB told me this forum is good fun but all I see is guys fighting over religion.
May be FHDB should be renamed Onlyreligionhere.com
