Bridge Building

In today's world where religion is used to divide and control the masses, I feel a mission to build bridges between religions.  Does anyone do the same?  To me it comes through developing friendships…Continue

How far does good will reach?

I grew up in an incredibly strict Baptist home. At the time I did not find it overbearing...most of the time. 9 years ago I joined the military, after being around the world and out of the bubble I…Continue

I wrote a small Jewish sharing. I would be honored to hear from people of other faiths and read what you think. The url is:

Greeting from the UK folks!I discovered AoM a few months ago, and have only recently joined discussions. Going through a few pages though I was kind of alarmed at some of the heavily anti Islamic comments I read.
What strikes me most though is that many people seem to have very different and - I would say - twisted viewpoints on the religion I love and follow.

Trashing other people's faiths is almost ALWAYS based on pure ignorance. Anything leading someone to live a kinder and better life is worthy.

One of my Budo (AKA Martial Arts) instructors taught us to recite every training session, "I will do no wrong, nor through my inaction will I permit wrong to be done." That is a philosophy that would be hard to dispute.

I was raised as a Baptist, with some strong input from my Methodist father. I am now a member of the LDS church. As a 23 year member of the U.S. Army, I was exposed to several non-Christian faiths in their natural home settings, As a martial artist I was specifically exposed to the Buddhist, Shinto, and Taoist world views. I learned from all these sources, and have harmonized then in my own mind.

I take serious objection to anyone trying to 'put down' another faith. For the last seven or eight years I have been an active member of a ministerial alliance of twenty-one (more or less) Christian denominations. We sometimes disagree over minor points, but it has never gotten in the way of friendships, nor community service.

Hi, Ken I like the notion. Somehow we all have got to come together.
Comment by Paul on August 28, 2010 at 12:26pm
Awesome idea. I am tired of reading these garbage topics about how other religions are wrong, bad, etc. As if everything is a competition...

Bravo, Ken.

Fiancee's father

Hi all,My fiancée has a bit of an issue with her father and I was hoping to get some advice on how to best support her through it if possible.The back story is as follows. I met her 5 years ago and her parents had divorced 2-3 years before that. Since then she has only had sporadic contact with her father, mostly via Facebook, e-mails etc. She only sees him in person a couple of times a year, if that. This is mainly due to his job which takes him all over the world, often at short notice and to…See More
