That One Religion

Generally, if you have Buddhists around Hindus....there's not much of a problem.

Generally, if you have Buddhists living around Sikhs....there's not much of a problem.

Generally, if you have Hindus around Christians.....there's not much of a problem.

Generally, if you have Hindus around Jews....there's not much of a problem.

Generally, if you have Shintos around Christians.....there's not much of a problem.

Go through Jews, Atheists, Baha'is and Sikhs into one neighborhood, there's not much of a problem.

Go throw Buddhists, Christians and Hindus into one town, there's not much of a problem.

You reach a point with this logic game where you finally come to one particular religion, and the fact that it has problems with 99-percent of all other religions existing.  You try to ask why, but for some reason.....the smart intellectual guy on CNN or MSNBC can't really answer it.  He grins a good bit but he just can't answer why one particular religion can't function or survive around other groups without hostility coming up.

Oh, it used to be true around the early 1600s where Catholics and Protestants were capable of killing a thousand people in one day in central Europe.....over the hostility between the two.  Eventually, they wiped out enough people.....that their brand-name ended up changing.  People lost faith in both religions and asked enough stupid questions to end the conflict.

There is a good debate topic here.....if people were willing to ask stupid questions and get the right people to answer the questions.
