It was amusing to read of a split among Southern Baptists over treating Muslims as legitimate citizens of the United States. Not all Southern Baptists want freedom of religion to apply to Muslims. Certainly, the President does not want freedom of religion to apply to everyone.
This blog and the discussion page have been filled with people, including myself, who pass judgment on others about the quality of their religious beliefs. I, for example, do not think the Bible condemns homosexuality. Others are certain it does.
I don’t think the Bible condemns abortion. Several who post views on the discussion page are certain it does.
The same thing is going on with Christian’s views about the Muslim faith. There are Christians who view that faith as dangerous and others who think its problems stem from the countries trouble makers come from, not the Muslim faith.
We all know well the literal wars with killing among Muslim groups. Just like in Christianity, each group is certain it is right and all others wrong.
Religion is a phenomenon where everyone is an expert. There is no way to sit another person down and say, “You are wrong.” Thus, a nonbeliever telling a believer there is not God is not more effective than a believer telling a nonbeliever he is going to hell.
My conclusion is that some portion of human beings are hard wired into religious belief of one kind or another. Currently, the world has a surplus of religions and experts on religion.
