I think the last time I commented on something like this the initiator of the post deleted it
So I reply but at hazard.
HHDL is fond of stateing religions are a smorgasboard, What is suited for one is not for another.
I am fond of stating at a smorgasboard one may find ones choice of foods if entirely indulged without any nutritional foundation in knowing what is good for one and bad for one----cheesecake to exclusion)....will result in illness and much suffering.
All religions are simply not for equal benefit or cause. Some shaministic religions of Nigeria at the present time consider the skins of albino peoples can be made into charms which bring good fortune, This has the result of albinos in those parts of africa living in fear for their lives and afraid to even venture out of their houses. Many have been convicted of this offense and consequent murder.
So was responded....well only large religions is meant.
So I responded....what of the religions destroyed by colonialism such as the Inca and Aztec religion...since they are no longer large due to that cause should we not include them?
WEll I think it was then deleted.
Yes he is correct it is a smorgasboard, what is suited for one is not another. All equal in all fashions...that is a misread on what he intends to my read. He means in very general terms...all religions without exception are indeed intended to bring their followers to happiness. To compassion.....well that depends. All state compassion but to the albino skin hunters compassion is compassion to their families they by such posession they will be able to better provide for. So...it depends.
To correct myself....I checked the post in which I mention the albinos is still there. Another post I mentioned conflicting opinion on appears not. To clarify........ the Initial poster deleted the content of his post so my post remained but just addressing nothing...which I thought was very cute. That one now appears gone.
