12:34 am - Tolerance to other religions
Lately I had problems trying to convince one of those new-age "peace for all", "everyone is in his own right for anything", "each one's world point of view is fine", ...

As usual, he had the opinion: "You must tolerate any religion, as catholics, muslims, krisnas., because there aren't points of view better than other".

I wanted to convince him on that, that some "ways of thinking" are 'better' than other. In the sense of hapiness, of easiest living, etc. And sure I was against any of those "god-deciding"/"god-is-right"/"god-has-power" religions.

Lately, the 'revolutioning' parties in my country (Communists, ecologists, ...) seem to tolerate -anything-, and promote toleration for anything without judgment.

Maybe any of you have a good solid fundamental discourse on that?

A couple of days ago, a 17 year old Kurdish girl was pulled from her house by a mob in northern Iraq and stoned to death. Her crime was that of having a relationship with a Muslim boy.


Show him the video and then slap your friend upside the head.
How's that for discourse?

I think they arge that the violence problems relate only to a few minority of religious people.

They don't see any _potential_ problem in the religious faith, which brings into possible violence problems. They may arge that there are also non-believers who use violence, so it's not clear that there is a relationship with religion.

Well, I'm getting into his skin - I cannot try this argument with him anytime soon.
