Do You Reckon Religion A Polarising Or Solidifying Influence

If you consider it most of the Earth has Problems with armed struggles, insurgency, rebellions, coup’s, crime and general unrest. Whether it be the worries in Northern Ireland from the 1960-1990’s, The 1916 Easter Rising Rebellion in Dublin, the Bosnian War from 1992 to 1996 or the maniacal genocide of the Jews by Hitler from 1939-45 there has long been a fight between religious factions.

Almost all of today’s conflicts are coming from variations in opinion and territorial conflicts that are wrapped up with non secular, political, business and social arguments.

China has been living under a harsh communist protocol for years. But now with new political leadership people have the right to practise worship or non worship if they please. China is now set to have the single largest Buddhist, Christian and Islamic communities living side-by-side. I believe it helps if communities practice their own beliefs without causing them on opposing spiritual and non non secular groups. This lesson I think still needs to be learned by the rest of the globe. I leave you with a quote by Gandhi, commenting on the prejudice by spiritual, I Like Your Christ but I do Not like Your Christians.
