With a plethora of different ethnicities in the world, religious hypocrites plays a role in superior vs. inferior, preaching about converting and changing with time. Religious differences have inspired many wars throughout history, with each side believing their God or gods will carry them to victory. Some of this opposition continues from ancient times to today. The Hindu and Muslim conflict is one of the longest and an exceptional example of Superior vs. Inferior. Both view that their gods are more paramount to the other, dating as far back as 715 A. D.
Conflict escalated more in the 1940’s when Pakistan separated from India and became an independent Muslim country. The border town of Kashmir, on India side, has been a continuous hot zone for religions dominance. In 2002, Muslims attacked a Hindu train and killed at least 58 people. This sparked widespread violence throughout Kashmir, as 2000 paramilitary troops were called in to squelch the rioting. Even though a call for peace among other world leaders hostility continues throughout Kashmir. Preaching and converting is a practice that continues to be a trend amongst all religions.
It comes in various forms and has many challenges. Like for me, being Hindu and growing up in southern California. I am what is considered a western Hindu. This means that my methods are against what the Hindu religion stands for. Having daily sermons delivered sermon of me being a hypocrite was an issue in the early stages of my marriage. My wife is a vegetarian, where I’m a current part time vegetarian and she has accepted. Delivering & convincing religion to the general public is a great challenge to anyone who practices what they preach.
Here people can relate what is called a religious hypocrite. What gives them the right to judge me and instruct me on how to practice my religion? Whether I believe in god or being an atheist shouldn’t matter as long as I believe in something. If it doesn’t hurt the general population, one should not be a hypocrite towards one’s beliefs. Many of our younger generation still hold strong beliefs in their religion, but may tend to alleviate more of the traditional ways, whereas parents of the younger generation tend to hold on to old traditions.
As more and more people from all parts of the world migrate to America, the general public is faced with a mix of religion and culture. Everywhere we look, anywhere we go, and religion is everywhere! This is a good thing for all of us. We live in a country where religion lives harmoniously. Adaptation of religion needs to be applied in a multicultural nation. Without adaptation and the understanding of other cultures and religions, they changing of times may not exist.
Perhaps our free nation of America would never come in to existence. Religion plays a vital role worldwide, it has been here since the beginning of time and it will be here after our generation has passed. The endless debates over of which religions are more dominate will continue. In conclusion, there are many hypocrites towards religion, but it’s up to each individual to believe what they want to believe in, and adapt to life’s current environment, and to never disrespect others peoples way of life and their beliefs.
