I personally feel that each person owes it to themself and to others to educate themselves to what other religions believe. Now, I'm NOT saying that they need to look in to religion because they want to change paths, just that I think if nothing else you can't talk religion to someone if you don't know what they believe...
But when I built a religions "education" group I'm seen as this horrid person and I've gotten nasty messages both publicly and privately... Why is it so horrid to want to educate people and help bring peace?
**posting anon only so that this is not seen as an ad... The last time I posted it someone reported me and it was deleted because it was an "AD"... Even though the web address wasn't in it...

I think people should try to educate themselves on it. I don't even mind it in schools if it is put in the right category. If they wanted to teach religion (yes even chrisitanity) in Philosophy or World religion than great. I do how ever get upset if they try to teach it as science. It is not science and has no reason to be taught as such.

Education breeds tolerance, tolerance breeds acceptance and if that happens then majority religions lose their ability to strong arm people and they lose their ability to preach false information about other faiths.
