All of them, which is why they are legal. Whereas the bad cults get banned
Also, religions don't spring arms and force people to do anything. otherwise libraries and places of worship would be high casualty places.
You're forgetting the role of politics and culture. Religion is barely in the top 10 of psychological factors that drive people today. It's politicians, and media guru's, not priests and The Church who are in charge of countries and their propaganda.
They just hide behind the mask of religions as they know dipshits know little about religion and other followers.0
I think tolerance and religion in the same sentence is, by default, an oximoron. The most tolerant of them all? It depends on which region of the world, not the actual religion. People say Muslims are some of the least tolerant, but this was not my experience. Many say that Christians are tolerant but this is not my experience because raised in one of the most conservative regions of the US.
If I had to pick an actual religion, I’d say that Islam is literally written in the Qua’ran as one of the most tolerant religions on earth. It is humans who have fucked it up.17
None of the ones you mention. The most gentle religions come under the umbrella of Paganism.
We abide by one rule: "If it harms none, do what you like". We also believe that what you do comes back to you 3 fold. Do bad, and you get something 3 times as bad.16
What Girls & Guys Said
Extremely silly question. So many ramifications here and 1000s of years of religion being used for both good and abused for evil.
Anyway some of the hardest working friendliest guys I know are Muslims. They also hate radicalism bs and try to go the extra mile to show they are not like that. They actually vote conservative because they realize that western society overall has the best outcome for society (not without trial and error).
True Christians are very peaceful as well. Jesus never preached murder or violence. The only time he lost his temper was when he saw merchants trying to exploit the house of worship for commercial gain. He’s not against capitalism but he hates fake Christians who are trying to make money for their own ends.
Anyway faith and religion can bring out both the best and worst in people. But most faiths do not condone unnecessary violence.10
I felt most love around Christian Coptic Orthodox and sometimes other denominations. Maybe Orthodox Christians in general, because I read somewhere that Greek people are very friendly people.
You rarely see crime against religious minorities in Greece if ever! The majority of Greek people are Christian Orthodox.21
Definitely not the Christians. Crusades, Inquisition, and missionaries proves that.
Followers of Islam, not really either given some of the Āyāt in the Quran.
Judaism is somewhat better but don't piss them off. Oy vavoy!
The Buddhists and other eastern religions would have my vote for being the most peaceful and tolerant.0
well first off lets cross off the mass genociding ones, so thats a NO to Jewish, Christian, Islam immediately.
if i had to say though aside from the big 3 of inhuman murder machines, none of them are that peaceful or tolerant maybe budhism is a little but religion changes severely depending on who has the reigns and how charismatic they are.11
Every religious group with political power persecutes others. Christians in Europe and the US, Muslims in Islamic countries, Hindus in India, Buddhists in Myanmar, it's a long list.0
It depends on the individual, not the belief - because a lot of religions are basically the same. Yet two people from the same religion can approach a situation in an entirely different way.10
Peaceful, Christianity. True christianity isn't tolerant to immoral i. e. gay marriage, fornication etc conduct though.10
Probably Buddhism. As far as I know they won't go out of their way to try and convert you and they're never violent.0
I don't know which is most peaceful and tolerant, but Islam is certainly the least.40
Most peaceful are probably the Amish. The best is whichever is closest to the truth.10
None of them. How peaceful people are depends much more on economic and geopolitical factors.0
When I think of peaceful religion I think of Buddhism.0
I've got a pretty good idea of who's at the bottom of that list!0
What about Native Americans?0
It depends on the individiual20
I don't know but maybe buddhists?0
Definitely not the extremist ones.0
They're all fkn crazy0
Christian: the only one with a risen Saviour10
I would say budhism, jainism, sikhism, taoism, shintoism, yezidi and zoroastranianism, zoroastranians was the first monotheistic religion which was state religion of Achaemenid empire,
