Like many people, I suppose that my own views are right. All people think this, I suspect, otherwise they’d change their point of view. Unless they’ve been brainwashed, of course. Religion has a way of convincing people that they alone are right. (And perhaps also those who believe just like them.) I have plenty of experience with this. Seemingly normal, friendly people suddenly turn on you when you’re not there to defend yourself. All in the name of religion. The place, unfortunately, that it’s most found is in “conservative” religions. With preachers braying about righteousness and being washed in the blood of the lamb the human element is often sacrificed. Anyone who dares to think differently is going to Hell, and, in most of these traditions, you wish them godspeed. Then there are those who wish for true dialogue.
