I will not banned books because each book has a purpose. I wouldn’t banned these books because it would be like taking away some knowledge from the kids. You cant take history away just because of the violence. For example if they banned religious books because its against another religion it wouldn’t be right. People wont know what happened in history if we banned them.
Many people believe that due to the simple fact of religious diversity, this provides the basis to discredit any assumption of moral truths. Some religions define evil as “the result of human sin” or that “Evil is the result of a spiritual being who opposes the Lord God” (Muncaster – Religion Lecture, 2016). Meanwhile, Christianity states there is only one god oppose to other religions that state the opposite. Due to the various amounts of moral disagreements between religions, it makes it quite difficult to believe in universal truths as everyday we encounter contradictions that exist within religions in explaining the meaning of good and
According to Smith, many Americans are concerned and even frightened by the systematic growth of evangelism (1). Americans fear that the evangelical dominance could result in the violation of religious freedom in the United States. Although many evangelicals argue that they are the religious minority, they are the ones who often religiously discriminate others since they are often very intolerant of other religions. Some people even argue that evangelicals seek to marginalize and eradicate those whom they disagree with (Smith, 4). The violation of religious freedom by evangelical dominance is particularly problematic for the children with evangelical parents.
In conclusion, although Christianity and Islam are both monotheistic religions, they offer differing perspectives on subjects like the Concept of God, the death of Jesus and the humanity 's natural state. When discussing the general concept of God, it is known that certain Christians have belief in a Holy Trinity, where God is represented in three different Persons, while Islam believes in one God only, associated with no partners or equivalents. The death of Jesus is also a topic that is one of the most important differences between Christianity and Islam. Christians believe that Jesus was tortured and crucified, only to be resurrected three days later and then ascended to Heaven. Muslims believe Jesus never had to suffer crucifixion, but a man who looked similar to Jesus did, while Jesus was ascended to Heaven and is alive until this day.

The media in every culture does not show the whole story, so people believe the stories that are half the truth. Furthermore, the religion most people follow is determined by the culture they are exposed to. The differences between Muslim and Christian culture also contributes to the conflict. For this reason, if people were more educated about the differences in culture they may be more understanding. The more people know of the other culture the more understanding people would have of why the two religions cultures are different.
Jefferson also said how it was wrong to require a public official to be of a certain religion, much like how the Baptists were afraid the John F. Kennedy would gain presidency then hand over the power to the catholic church, Jefferson also said that a man brought to power specifically for religious reasons tend to be “corrupt the principles of that very religion it is meant to encourage,” the official becomes very bias to that church that he is representing. The man elected to office by religion can then suddenly start judging others and deciding things that are right with the church he is representing, not the U.S. constitution or any other laws that could contradict the rules from his church. Jefferson closes the article by stating how his state, the state of Virginia, will not compel or require any citizen to attend, worship, support, or minister any church or religion that that specific citizen did not choose to do so.
You cannot force religion upon someone or a group of people. You need Freedom of religion and you cannot say or tell someone to do this or to make them do something they don’t wish to do. Also freedom of speech as you can say what you believe in and why.

Introduction A lot of believers point it out that belief plays a unique role in their lives and it true. Those unbelievers who reject to believe in God as no more credible than belief in Santa Claus or in fairies miss the point.

This group of people wanted to ‘purify’ the church, which is where they got the name the Puritans. Puritans believed all catholic based beliefs should be taken out of the church and that it was not required to worship God.
the excerpts from The Qur’an and “The Symbolism of the Islamic Garden” are very different than what present western society preaches today in churches throughout the modern world for most religions. For example, in the Quran it states to follow Allah lawfully, his followers must not eat pork, blood, and food that has been slaughtered for the sacrifice of holy figures other than God. Additionally, before you slaughter the animal or eat the animals, the believer of God must render His name. In churches, across the United States, any sect of religion involving Christianity, Catholicism, or Judaism, followers do not follow these kinds of rules, they would see these rules as barbaric and out of touch for present time believers of God. Also there
