While we welcome discussions on religion, all exchanges must be carried out in a spirit of mutual respect and genuine inquiry. The cardinal rule is this: treat all religions with respect. A) When engaging in a discussion, look for what is good and true in all religions, even those that you may disagree with. B) If you don't understand another person's belief, politely ask them to explain it, emphasizing that you want to understand where they are coming from. C) If you strongly disagree with another person's belief, don't even bring it up. If your mind is already made up that they are wrong, there's no point in starting a discussion. D) If you initially disagree with another person's belief, but are open to the possibility that they may be correct, then it's appropriate to engage them in a discussion. If you are legitimately interested in learning where they are coming from, then it's also fine to ask questions. E) However, if you KNOW that you're right and that someone else is wrong, and your objective is to prove how right you are, then having a discussion is pointless. F) Finally, attempting to deconstruct and prove as false another person's deeply held beliefs is not a respectful exchange. In general, don't discuss religion unless: 1) You are legitimately open to other points of view. 2) You sincerely want to learn about other religious beliefs.
