  • not my religion but my belief
    that people should not be the judge if others are going to hell
    i leave this up to God and judgement day
    I can NOT stand it when people say that others are damned to hell because they do not believe in this or that

  • I would like to clear up the misconception that Hinduism is a polytheistic religion. We actually believe in one god. The many gods that people think we believe in seperately, are all actually just aspects of the single supreme being.

  • Being Pagan doesn't mean being Anti-Christian, Anti-Religion or Anti-Anything - it's about following my heart and finding a connection to the world as a whole rather following any religious dogma or rules...

  • Jihad does not mean holy war. It is Arabic for "self struggle within ones self." Holy War in Arabic is "Harb u Muqadash". Muslims aer not on a quest to "conquer" the world or force people to become Muslims. There is a verse in the Qur'an that says no complusion in religion. Three definitions of jihad:
    1. Intellectual Jihad, which compromises of the struggle to convey the message of God to humankind and to combat social evils through knowledge, wisdom and dignified discourse. As the Glorious Qur'an says: "Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, "I am of those who bow in Islam?" (Qur'an 41:33).
    2. Economic Jihad, which compromises of economic measures, and spending from one's means to improve the living conditions of the poor and downtrodden.
    3. Physical Jihad, which involves collective armed self-defense, as well as retribution against tyranny, exploitation, and oppression
