Ramadan and High Holy Days

I think it's interesting that Ramadan and the High Holy Days (for persons of the Muslim and Jewish faiths respectively) fall around the same time this year.

Anyway, wishing our Muslim and Jewish post-ers blessed and prayerful holy days. Rosh Hashanah kicks off the High Holy Days today, and Ramadan begins tomorrow.

Let's face it, they hate each other.

I look forward to the day when all Jewish, Muslim, Christian and other religious 'holy' days are abolished.

Religion does not necessarily mean hate. Some people twist it and use it for their own needs.

BTW, I’m Jewish and don’t hate Muslims. Nothing personal, but there were to many generalizations here lately.

Isn't that just another form of hate?

There are two basic kinds of religious oppression. One is to require religion; the other is to ban it.

Thanks for the post Pax! Shalom Salem!

YEs it certainly is another form of hate and a Mod should be notified in my opinion. Anyone else?

OK guys - the thread was clearly meant to be a celebration of the two holidays and the two faiths, not an attack on either of them. Pretty interesting topics, but if people are looking for a more argumentative approach please start another thread, respectful in tone, of course.

Agree with you.

Religion is mankinds worse invention.

We ALL kill each other off because our God is better than everyone elses´. That is so stupid.
Specially when the Jewish God, the Muslim God, and the Christian God are all the same guy. The only diference is in the name by which they call him (HIM).

Does any of this make sense to a civilized planet? No.
Idiots deserve to die in the name of something they cannot see.

By the way...HAPPY CHRISTMAS !!!...

....and HAPPY EASTER BUNNY DAY, too!
