RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE ON THE RISE, WHY?
Haven't we progressed to be a society, country, and globally of civilized, loving, kind and compassionate people?
Haven't we attained a certain degree of understanding, intellectual and compassionate unity to accept that after all religious differences is truly not a cause to harm and to hurt other people?
Obviously not. Below is a copy of the result of the Human Rights Study, that covers all kinds of religion and it is truly mind boggling why it is on the rise. While this report is based on a 5 years old study, I do personally feel that lacking of acceptance and understanding of others belief and religion do cause so much rift among mankind even today.
When I was in Australia last year, which house the biggest group of Muslim (asylum seekers) sect, I observed a rather, alienating feelings and discontent from the citizens due to their transparent and powerful exhibit of their strong belief of which is very different from the Christian based citizens. Whether or not this will grow into a major problem, I don't know but perhaps some of our members here will share their opinion?
Can we shed a little understanding and what would you do if you had the power, authority to change such a growing intolerance?
Will we ever achieve a true friendly and compassionate relations regardless of our religion? Or perhaps, truly all wars are indeed caused by this rift?
Thank you all so much for your contributions, comments and opinions.
Have a nice day/night.
