The value of ancient religions in life today

So now it’s even the nice little Buddhists! Seeeeeeeeeeeee! See why I keep saying creating a hierarchy of which religion is least rubbish is pointless? All it does is give cover to some who then go out and do exactly the same sort of thing the badder ones were doing last week.

    Okay, what did your Buddhists do?

    Ah, so it is a peaceful religion! But, the only good religion is a dead religion, no? Apparently so.

    Personally, I’ve worshiped the Oreo most of my life. I also worship his wife, Milk, whom I dip him into before I consume him. $Amen$

    It’s heart-breaking, and it doesn’t look as if anyone in the country has the clout to stop it – other than the military, who are the main perpetrators.

      Just horrendous. As if life in those parts of the world wasn’t difficult enough already!

    Atheists, vegans, PETA, Greenpeace, alt-right, and antifa activists can be as violent. Those guys have nothing to do with religion. There is neither causality nor correlation between religion and violence, as it seems.

      The correlation isn’t to do with the religion angle, but with the group structure. In the Myanmar case there’s one particular group (of monks) using the authority afforded to them by religious group dynamics to promote discrimination.

        There is another problem here. It’s easy to see that the violence is caused not by religion itself, but something else. You seem to know it. But still, your post seems to blame religion for it. And it seems to be a worldwide tendency in media and culture these days to blame a specific religion or religion as a whole or a specific group for some shit happening in the world. And this blame game only causes more shit happening.

        I blame it as a very good (and easy to use) tool. As power structures go, the way religion is organised makes it the ideal “method” for maintaining power.
        That’s why so many authoritarian political movements copied the religious structure. From Mao to Franco – self anointed supreme leaders.

      most, if not all religions are based on hating the “other” because the believers have to insist that they are the only holy and good ones. This is the connection between religion and violence.

    Only a secular government can at least guarantee equal rights to all citizens.
    A religion embedded in the structure of the state is a problem everywhere.

    Hatred of the ‘Other’ seems to be hardwired into the human psyche. For hundreds of years it was the Jews who were hated. Now it’s the Muslims. Religion is only a handy hook by which to classify the people you hate. Sadly, it is a very visible and powerful hook.

    The situation in Burma has little to do with Buddhism and much more to do with the military regime and a very complex political system. The military has used the Rohingya for many years as to divide the people and garner support for their cause. Much like you are using this story to manipulate the facts to support your particular political twist. Couple thus with the complete ineptitude of the Bangladeshi government who has actually been sending the Rohingya back to Burma along with Rohingya that were originally from Bangladesh and you find an unwanted people stuck between two governments who don’t seem to care. You should really educate yourself before you start spouting such drivel and crap.

      So you evidently didn’t understand a word I said in the post or my answers in the comments.
      My point is/was how religious power structures are used to maintain power – no matter what that religion may be. Try reading first before answering whatever narrative is going on in your head. It’ll make you seem less paranoid and idiotic.
