Yes and No.
A hostile person is one who is antagonistic in action, thought or principle. Am I antagonistic in action, thought or principle towards all religions? No. Am I antagonistic in action, thought or principle towards some religions? Yes.
I have a number of friends and acquaintances who have all kinds of spiritual and religious beliefs. Do I think some of their beliefs and practices are strange? Sure. But, their beliefs are theirs and they have every right to practice them. I am indifferent towards their beliefs.
For these friends and acquaintances spirituality and religion is personal. They have no desire to convert other people or argue about whose religion is the “true” religion.
For the most part, they live according to the Live and Let Live maxim. I would be an arrogant fool to be hostile towards this kind of religion. I know that religion and spirituality serves a purpose for many people. They benefit from their beliefs and practices and many of them find meaning, purpose, and direction through their religion.
However, there IS a kind of religion I AM hostile towards. Religions that try to convert. Religions that purport to KNOW the truth. Religions who say they are the one, true religion. Religions that invade the lives of others and attempt to force others to believe like they believe. Religions that divide people into groups…saved/lost, believer/unbeliever. Religions that tout their Holy Book as a divine message from their God. Religions that kill, rape, steal, and pillage to advance their cause. Religions that try to engender social strife to advance their cause. Religions that try to brainwash children at an early age, be it at home or in the school. Religions that stir up hatred towards others all because of who and what they are
Yes, these kind of religions I am hostile towards. I make no apology for this. I see the hurt and damage done by these religions; I see the oppression and control, how can I, as a reasoning, caring man, NOT be hostile towards these religions?
Bruce, which religions are you talking about? You know which ones. They are not hard to spot. You don’t need a lot of schooling to know which religions fit the above description.
