Lightbulb Why can't religion simply be a personal belief?

It strikes me hard, when religion has now becoming more and more of a public referendum than just simply a personal belief.

Personally, I'm leaning more and more towards what John Lennon referred to in the lyrics of his song "Imagine". Guess the world will be a far more peaceful place. without all these religious fanatics running around on this earth.

That' s exactly the same feeling here but when you have institutionalized religious believed condoned by people that is able to do something about it and not doing anything to correct that unfairness , insisting that there is only one and no other in this world , that would be a ticking time bomb .
The believed by these group is as narrow as you can describe , imposing their believe on others wholesale whilst not willing to even consider that there are different believe or religion out there.

Your question arises because of what is written in the other post...no..?

CY,
The understanding is mutual. There is no need to even draw out the details. Right?

In Malaysia, religion has been used by politicians to gain political mileage.

But that is only restricted to the main religion here. At least it's not as bad here as in the Phillipines. Folks there have to guard a McDonalds outlet with machine guns against the extremists.

TT,
I am referring to you because you're the one, who said you would leave that country in a hurry. Hence, many like the way you think must have left, giving you the opportunity to hire so many SYTs of your choice. Get my drift now?
