You may be an atheist, you may be agnostic, you may have whatever faith you choose, but I think we'd all agree that whatever the word "God" means, all religions address the same God.
It just drives me nuts that these fundamentalist Christians want to view Muslims as believing in a "different God." This is patently absurd. And it spreads bigotry.
I understand that Buddhists are not theists. I understand that Hindus have a variety of "gods," yet underlying Hinduism is Vedanta, which asserts the One that cannot be named. As I see it then, Hinduism, allows for different manifestations of God, but believes in an underlying oneness.
I respect you if you're atheist. I respect you if you're agnostic. But I simply can't respect efforts to marginalize or brand as somehow demonic people whose faith calls "God" by another name (for example Allah.... or Yahweh).
This dreadful election season is spreading so many lies and seeding so many false and dangerous ideas. And I just had to confront this one!
