That's looking at it very ignorantly. Religion can be stupid and harmful, but that's only looking at the negatives of religion. Beyond that, there are some good people, and this thread demonstrates that there are good people in Religion.

I think those people are being good in spite of their religions, not because of them.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

As earmuffs said... religion caused the problem in the first place.

I'll respect religions the day they all say...

"Hey, all this is fuckin' stupid... lets have a few beers. Plenty of time for all this God shit when we're dead."

Agreed.

I agree. But in general, there are a majority of good people in the world regardless of religion. Religion is still to blame for the need of such human sacrifice and humanitarian concern for one another against the tyrrany of a brainwashed horde.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Fixed.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: This is what Religion is supposed to be.
I applaud people for letting go of their religious teachings and begin to use some secular morality.

Religion is about the supernatural. The actions and pictures posted above is all about behaving like a decent human being.
There was nothing supernatural about their actions, unless of course you want to say that it must be a miracle that these religious people would let go of their religion for a little while in order to help protect other human beings of a different faith.

For me these pictures show an unshackling of religion in favor of secular morality
