What's one thing you admire from another religion?

I admire the JW for their evangelizing and the Mormans for their giving especially in the Yes on Prop 8. How about you?

  • I admire Buddhists for their outlook on life. They seem to be very happy and content. I'm not saying people that follow other religions aren't...they just seem to show it more.

  • I agree with the first part of the OPs statement (concerning the JWs and their stick-to-it-iveness) but strongly disagree with the second half.

  • I'm going to repost this here, I posted in the other question that is the same thing...not sure why it needed asked twice in 16 minutes... oh well

    The "harm none" belief in most pagan religions. This includes thinking bad things, saying bad things, and doing bad things. IMO The world would be a much better place if everyone tried to follow this.

    I admire Seventh Day Adventists, who's belief system includes being healthy.  The things they eat and do not eat really is inspiring that their faith can lead them to a healthier lifestyle.

  • catholicism: I was raised going to catholic church but it was never "my religion". their churches are a beautiful sensory experience: the architecture, the incense, the stained glass, the holy water, the ritual. don't believe a bit of it, but they have lovely trappings.

    and black southern churches seem to me to get it a lot closer to right: the music is joyous, their god's love makes them happy, and there's not such a preoccupation with what others are doing with their genitals, or what others are reading or watching. a much better model than many churches, IMHO.

  • There's much to admire in many religions. Pagans, for their tolerance of individuality. Muslims, for their self-discipline and self-restraint. Jews, for their history and perseverance. Buddhists, for their peace and serenity.

  • i agree that mormon church seems to be the most organized and seem to be the first in humanitarian aid. i don't know about others so i can't say what i like about other churches. although i think the catholic church has some pretty churches.
