it was very important. it was the whole reason for the crusades. the christens thought they were better than everyone else and thought Jerusalem was theirs. the crusades resulted from that religious tension. look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades The Crusades were a series of military conflicts of a religious character waged by much of Christian Europe against external and internal threats. Crusades were fought against Muslims, pagan Slavs, Russian and Greek Orthodox Christians, Mongols, Cathars, Hussites, and political enemies of the popes.[1] Crusaders took vows and were granted an indulgence for past sins.[1]

Levi Originally Answered: Why are some people's religious beliefs more important than others?
a person's beliefs are only more important to that person, not to everyone else. we are essentially self-centered creatures and largely incapable of accepting diversity in the world. there certainly should be a real (not just on paper) separation of church and state. religion should not be taught in public schools, and teachers should not impose their own personal biases in the classroom -- that goes for both atheists and believers of all persuasions. Teachers are supposed to teach science, fact and tools to help us get jobs, not religion. For that, there are churches.

The religious beliefs of a muslim are no more important than those of a christian... or at least they shouldn't be. Last I checked, we had freedom of religion... The difference between your examples, is that Christianity is the mainstream religion in the U.S. Therefore, you need to be tolerant of others religions... and most christians are not. If you Christians would stop telling everyone else that they are wrong for not believing exactly what you do, you might not have this problem anymore... White people get the same rap from all other ethnic groups... largely because white people have been picking on other ethnic groups for the longest amount of time. So the white people are the first who have to learn tolerance... And I agree with that idea totally.

You point our, correctly, that there is occasionally a double standard. But then you say "fix this by getting rid of it all". The logical jump is un-necessary. Just because there is a double standard in place doesn't mean you have to get rid of it ALL - it just means you should address the double standard itself. I.e. EITHER allow ALL religious decorations - or allow none (which is what you suggest). Allowing them all would seem better, as its less restrictive. Having said all this - do you actually have proof that Muslims are complaining about Xmas decorations? Quite often, people just take them down pre-emptively, because they're worried that Muslims WILL complain - but the ones I've spoken to don't care at all about Xmas decorations.

We cannot judge people for their beliefs. We can only say that their belief system works for them, but not for me. I was spoon fed, while growing up, in what I jokingly refer to as the Church of Bubba". I then started my own spiritual journey about 10 years ago, after reading a lot of "Eastern Thought" and Gnostic Gospels. I do not want to discuss here my belief, but again, I do belief that everyone is exactly where they are intended to be, spiritual wise, and that we should not judge them for that. It would be like chiding a child for not walking yet, when they have not learned to crawl. Be open to everything, and enjoy life. It's too short to worry about what others think. Just be true to yourself (And now I will step off my pulpit, thank you).

I have studied my way up to this point. I suppose that technically, I started off as an atheist. Then again, all children begin as atheists until they are taught beliefs. For example, no one believes in Santa Claus until their parents encourage the belief. While I had learned of Christian notions, I was not really a Christian until probably age 8 or 9. Everyone else was a Christian around me, so it seemed like the right thing to be. So, I asked my parents if I could attend church. I was a good little Christian through middle school and some of high school. I started questioning what I learned during those years and realized that in my quest to find something meaningful, I deluded myself into believing Christianity. During my senior year of high school, I questioned a lot and even went militant atheist for a while. Mostly, I was being anti-theistic at that point. In college, I mellowed out. And now I am back to where I was when I was young: I am an atheist. Atheism was never spoon-fed to me. It just made the most sense. The nonsense I was spoon-fed in church was easy for me to reject. I opened my mind and looked to Christianity. After a while, I continued to open my mind and looked at paganism, Hinduism, and Islam. Ultimately, the opened mind led me here.
