Ancient Chinese medical ethics and the four principles of biomedical ethics. (1/392)

The four principles approach to biomedical ethics (4PBE) has, since the 1970s, been increasingly developed as a universal bioethics method. Despite its wide acceptance and popularity, the 4PBE has received many challenges to its cross-cultural plausibility. This paper first specifies the principles and characteristics of ancient Chinese medical ethics (ACME), then makes a comparison between ACME and the 4PBE with a view to testing out the 4PBE's cross-cultural plausibility when applied to one particular but very extensive and prominent cultural context. The result shows that the concepts of respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice are clearly identifiable in ACME. Yet, being influenced by certain socio-cultural factors, those applying the 4PBE in Chinese society may tend to adopt a "beneficence-oriented", rather than an "autonomy-oriented" approach, which, in general, is dissimilar to the practice of contemporary Western bioethics, where "autonomy often triumphs".  (+info)

The ambiguity about death in Japan: an ethical implication for organ procurement. (2/392)

In the latter half of the twentieth century, developed countries of the world have made tremendous strides in organ donation and transplantation. However, in this area of medicine, Japan has been slow to follow. Japanese ethics, deeply rooted in religion and tradition, have affected their outlook on life and death. Because the Japanese have only recently started to acknowledge the concept of brain death, transplantation of major organs has been hindered in that country. Currently, there is a dual definition of death in Japan, intended to satisfy both sides of the issue. This interesting paradox, which still stands to be fully resolved, illustrates the contentious conflict between medical ethics and medical progress in Japan.  (+info)

Body weight and mortality among adults who never smoked. (3/392)

In a 12-year prospective study, the authors examined the relation between body mass index (BMI) and mortality among the 20,346 middle-aged (25-54 years) and older (55-84 years) non-Hispanic white cohort members of the Adventist Health Study (California, 1976-1988) who had never smoked cigarettes and had no history of coronary heart disease, cancer, or stroke. In analyses that accounted for putative indicators (weight change relative to 17 years before baseline, death during early follow-up) of pre-existing illness, the authors found a direct positive relation between BMI and all-cause mortality among middle-aged men (minimum risk at BMI (kg/m2) 15-22.3, older men (minimum risk at BMI 13.5-22.3), middle-aged women (minimum risk at BMI 13.9-20.6), and older women who had undergone postmenopausal hormone replacement (minimum risk at BMI 13.4-20.6). Among older women who had not undergone postmenopausal hormone replacement, the authors found a J-shaped relation (minimum risk at BMI 20.7-27.4) in which BMI <20.7 was associated with a twofold increase in mortality risk (hazard ratio (HR) = 2.2, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.3, 3.5) that was primarily due to cardiovascular and respiratory disease. These findings not only identify adiposity as a risk factor among adults, but also raise the possibility that very lean older women can experience an increased mortality risk that may be due to their lower levels of adipose tissue-derived estrogen.  (+info)

Bioethics of the refusal of blood by Jehovah's Witnesses: Part 3. A proposal for a don't-ask-don't-tell policy. (4/392)

Of growing concern over Jehovah's Witnesses' (JWs) refusal of blood is the intrusion of the religious organisation into its members' personal decision making about medical care. The organisation currently may apply severe religious sanctions to JWs who opt for certain forms of blood-based treatment. While the doctrine may be maintained as the unchangeable "law of God", the autonomy of individual JW patients could still be protected by the organisation modifying its current policy so that it strictly adheres to the right of privacy regarding personal medical information. The author proposes that the controlling religious organisation adopt a "don't-ask-don't-tell" policy, which assures JWs that they would neither be asked nor compelled to reveal personal medical information, either to one another or to the church organisation. This would relieve patients of the fear of breach of medical confidentiality and ensure a truly autonomous decision on blood-based treatments without fear of organisational control or sanction.  (+info)

Jehovah's Witnesses' refusal of blood: obedience to scripture and religious conscience. (5/392)

Jehovah's Witnesses are students of the Bible. They refuse transfusions out of obedience to the scriptural directive to abstain and keep from blood. Dr Muramoto disagrees with the Witnesses' religious beliefs in this regard. Despite this basic disagreement over the meaning of Biblical texts, Muramoto flouts the religious basis for the Witnesses' position. His proposed policy change about accepting transfusions in private not only conflicts with the Witnesses' fundamental beliefs but it promotes hypocrisy. In addition, Muramoto's arguments about pressure to conform and coerced disclosure of private information misrepresent the beliefs and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses and ignore the element of individual conscience. In short, Muramoto resorts to distortion and uncorroborated assertions in his effort to portray a matter of religious faith as a matter of medical ethical debate.  (+info)

Attitudes to organ donation among South Asians in an English high street. (6/392)

In the UK, people of South Asian origin are at more than twice the risk of end-stage renal failure encountered in the Caucasian population but are under-represented among organ donors. Difficulties with matching mean that few donated kidneys are suitable for transplantation to South Asian recipients. A survey of attitudes in 100 South Asian adults was conducted in the main street of Southall, Middlesex. 90 of those questioned were aware of organ transplantation and 69 had heard about donor cards. However, the 16% who carried a donor card was lower than the 28% reported in the general population. The main reason for the low organ donation rate by South Asians seemed to be lack of knowledge, and this could be remedied by more targeting of information in the Asian media.  (+info)

Spiritual faith and genetic testing decisions among high-risk breast cancer probands. (7/392)

Despite widespread access to genetic testing for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 breast cancer susceptibility genes, little is known about rates or predictors of test use among individuals from newly ascertained high-risk families who have self-referred for genetic counseling/testing. The objective of this study was to examine rates of test use within this population. In addition, we sought to determine whether spiritual faith and psychological factors influenced testing decisions. Participants were 290 women with familial breast cancer. All were offered genetic counseling and testing for alterations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Baseline levels of spiritual faith, cancer-specific distress, perceived risk, and demographic factors were examined to identify independent predictors of whether participants received versus declined testing. The final logistic model revealed statistically significant main effects for spiritual faith [odds ratio (OR), 0.2; 95% confidence intervals (CIs), 0.1 and 0.5] and perceived ovarian cancer risk (OR, 2.4; 95% CIs, 1.3 and 4.7) and a statistically significant spiritual faith by perceived risk interaction effect. Among women who perceived themselves to be at low risk of developing breast cancer again, those with higher levels of spiritual faith were significantly less likely to be tested, compared with those with lower levels of faith (OR, 0.2; 95% CIs, 0.1 and 0.5). However, among women with high levels of perceived risk, rates of test use were high, regardless of levels of spiritual faith (OR, 1.2; 95% CIs, 0.4 and 3.0). These results highlight the role that spirituality may play in the decision-making process about genetic testing.  (+info)

Talismans and amulets in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit: legendary powers in contemporary medicine. (8/392)

BACKGROUND: For centuries talismans and amulets have been used in many cultures for their legendary healing powers. METHODS: We asked the parents of every child (Jews and Arabs) admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit over a 2 month period to complete a questionnaire, which included demographic data on the patient and the family, the use of talismans or other folk medicine practices, and the perception of the effects of these practices on the patient's well-being. A different questionnaire was completed by the ICU staff members on their attitude toward the use of amulets. RESULTS: Thirty percent of the families used amulets and talismans in the ICU, irrespective of the socioeconomic status of the family or the severity of the patient's illness. Amulets and talismans were used significantly more by religious Jews, by families with a higher parental educational level, and where the hospitalized child was very young. The estimated frequency of amulet use by the children's families, as perceived by the staff, was significantly higher than actual use reported by the parents. In Jewish families the actual use of amulets was found to be 30% compared to the 60% rate estimated by the medical staff; while in Moslem families the actual use was zero compared to the staff's estimation of about 36%. Of the 19 staff members, 14 reported that the use of amulets seemed to reduce the parents' anxiety, while 2 claimed that amulet use sometimes interfered with the staff's ability to carry out medical treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The use of talismans in a technologically advanced western society is more frequent than may have been thought. Medical and paramedical personnel dealing with very ill patients should be aware of the emotional and psychological implications of such beliefs and practices on patients and their families.  (+info)

I have worked with individuals in psychiatric hospitals and outpatient community mental health settings who suffered from schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders and whose symptoms included religiously-themed delusions. It would be difficult to mistake most of them for run-of-the-mill religious believers even though the line between religious delusion and the sort of beliefs held by some religious extremists can be fuzzy at times. Not only were their beliefs far outside what would be accepted by any religious tradition, but their religious beliefs were only one part of much larger syndromes. In most cases, one symptom does not make a mental disorder. Some specific religious beliefs can be held with delusional intensity by persons with psychotic disorders. But this is very different from asserting that anyone who holds any religious beliefs at all is mentally ill ...
The Church of Denmark (Den danske folkekirke) is state-supported and, according to statistics from January 2006, accounts for about 80% of Denmarks religious affiliation. Denmark has had religious freedom guaranteed since 1849 by the Constitution,[13] and numerous other religions are officially recognised,[14] including several Christian denominations, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu and other congregations as well as Forn Siðr, a revival of Scandinavian pagan tradition.[14] The Department of Ecclesiastical Affairs recognises roughly a hundred religious congregations for tax and legal purposes such as conducting wedding ceremonies. Islam is the second largest religion in Denmark. For historical reasons, there is a formal distinction between approved (godkendte) and recognised (anerkendte) congregations of faith.[14] The latter include 11 traditional denominations, such as Roman Catholics, the Reformed Church, the Mosaic Congregation, Methodists and Baptists, some of whose privileges in the ...
The Religion Department at Middlebury seeks to acquaint students with the worlds major religious traditions, with varieties of global religious experience, and with religious approaches to a broad range of topics and questions. We emphasize the study of individual religious traditions, because we hold that a solid understanding of one is crucial for developing an appreciation for other traditions and for religion as a fundamental human experience. We also maintain, however, that it is important for students to have experience with comparative approaches to the study of religion.
The most important conclusion of the present study is that differential fertility is a significant influence on trends in the strength of religious belief at the country level. This adds to earlier results suggesting that differential fertility is important for the growth of Christian denominations in the United States (Hout et al, 2001), and for future religiosity in most religious traditions worldwide (Kaufmann, 2008, 2010). The belief that differential fertility can affect trends in psychological and behavioral traits in human societies has been brought forward since the late 19th century as an implication of Darwinian evolutionary theory, and is still held by many researchers today (Lynn, 2011; Rowthorn, 2011). However, empiric evidence linking differential fertility for any behavioral trait to country-level trends in the trait has never been presented in comparative studies. The results presented here for religion provide the first empiric evidence that this theoretically postulated link ...
Evidence suggests that religiosity can be a pathway to both mental health and mental disorder. For example, religiosity is positively associated with mental disorders that involve an excessive amount of self-control and negatively associated with mental disorders that involve a lack of self-control.[25] Other studies have found indications of mental health among both the religious and the secular. For instance, Vilchinsky & Kravetz found negative correlations with psychological distress among religious and secular subgroups of Jewish students.[26] In addition, intrinsic religiosity has been inversely related to depression in the elderly, while extrinsic religiosity has no relation or even a slight positive relation to depression.[27][28] Religiosity has been found to mitigate the negative impact of injustice and income inequality on life satisfaction.[29][30] The link between religion and mental health may be due to the guiding framework or social support that it offers to individuals.[31] By ...

Ken,. If this judgement implied that a belief in anthropogenic climate was faith rather than evidence based, then it would be a very bad judgement.. No judgement should ever rely on this way of distinguishing between religious and non-religious beliefs. Judges should make it clear that they are not relying on this distinction.. The problem is where invoking this distinction leads.. Relying on the faith/evidence distinction risks placing courts and tribunals in a position where they have to rule whether a particular belief is so strongly supported by evidence and argument that it does not require an appeal to faith (imagine the headline: Judge rules Jesus rose from dead!).. In addition, it risks ruling that some religions are not, in fact, religions at all because their adherents believe that they are supported by evidence rather than faith.. Arguments about scientific proof are a red herring. The choice is not between science or faith. Many beliefs are supported by evidence and argument ...

A major or minor in religion at Drake University is a study of sacred texts and their interpretation, of theological and ethical reasoning, of the breadth of religious thinking and practice, and of the meaning of the religious quest for a comprehensive understanding of reality. Courses can prepare students for an understanding of the diverse religious traditions of the world, for graduate professional training for ministry, for an active religious life, or for critical reflection on the ways in which human communities experience and describe the sacred.. In addition to the possibilities that the study of religion itself offers, the size of the department affords the luxury of really getting to know our students, offering collaborative learning between faculty and students. The faculty, values time spent with students beyond the classroom, engaging in conversation, mentoring students and building community.. ...

The event opened with a moment of silent prayer of remembrance for the victims and their families.

Retreats to a defense of compatibilism (between science and religion) on the basis of its logical possibility misses the point, by and large. Certainly there is a way to engineer ones God beliefs in a way that carefully navigates around any conflicts with scientifically justified knowledge. And certainly that are people who claim to be both, although the fact that people, given their general propensity to inconsistent belief systems, do it is a pretty weak justification. There will be a couple of problems with this project, as I see it. First, the notion of God that has been adapted (ad hoc) to avoid any conflicts with scientific knowledge ends up pretty impoverished not very philosophically interesting or significant. He doesnt have a brain, so hes not conscious, and so on. Second, the engineered notion of God is miles away from the sort of being that the vast majority of believers believe in and the one that is the center of the major religious traditions.

On the question of engineering v. science, it is partly just a cultural difference. Engineers are expected to have conventional solutions to a wide range of problems. Scientists on the other hand generally are faced with a wide range of problems for which there are no solutions and their charge is to discover some. When you are doing good science, you really are in a uncertain situation, it takes a certain kind of calm and self-assurance to cope with that uncertainty for years and years. I dont think that kind of environment appeals to the religious. They seem to have a kind of fetish about certainty. So perhaps it is natural that the religious gravitate towards engineering instead of science. There are no doubt plenty of brilliant engineers who are confronted with similar difficulties to those of science when developing hardware or software for truly novel applications and uses. Like the engineers who developed the four computer decision system for the avionics of the shuttle. For the time and ...
I had a long conversation last night with a friend. Shes writing a piece about her experience on this journey with me. And we began talking about the congregation I serve.

This, I believe, is the reason they have not had a new member in oh, lets say 10 years.

Origins: Among the pantheon of characters commonly associated with the Christmas season (both the religious holiday and the secular wintertime celebrations), the beloved persona of Santa Claus is somewhat distinctive in that his appearance is neither one that has been solidified through centuries of religious tradition nor one that sprang fully-formed from the imagination of a modern-day writer or artist. Santa Claus is instead a hybrid, a character descended from a religious figure (St. Nicholas) whose physical appearance and backstory were created and shaped by many different hands over the course of years until he finally coalesced into the now familiar (secular) character of a jolly, rotund, red-and-white garbed father figure who oversees a North Pole workshop manned by elves and travels in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer to deliver toys to children all around the world every Christmas Eve. (Among the many persons who had a hand in creating the modern Santa Claus figure, some of the most ...

Faith is the commitment of ones consciousness to beliefs for which one has no sensory evidence or rational proof. When a person rejects reason as their standard of judgment, only one alternative standard remains to them: feelings. A mystic is a person who treats feelings as tools of cognition. Faith is the equation of feeling with knowledge. To practice the virtue of faith, one must be willing to suspend ones sight and ones judgment; one must be willing to live with the unintelligible, with that which cannot be conceptualized or integrated into the rest of ones knowledge, and to induce a trance like illusion of understanding. One must be willing to repress ones critical faculty and hold it as ones guilt; one must be willing to drown any questions that rise in protest-to strangle any trust of reason convulsively seeking to assert its proper function as the protector of ones life and cognitive integrity. The human need for self-esteem entails the need for a sense of control over ...

One of the most startling developments of the late twentieth century has been the emergence within every major religious tradition of a militant piety popularly known as fundamentalism. Its manifestations are sometimes shocking. Fundamentalists have gunned down worshippers in a mosque, have killed doctors and nurses who work in abortion clinics, have shot their presidents, and have even toppled a powerful government. It is only a small minority of fundamentalists who commit such acts of terror, but even the most peaceful and law-abiding are perplexing, because they seem so adamantly opposed to many of the most positive values of modern society. Fundamentalists have no time for democracy, pluralism, religious toleration, peacekeeping, free speech, or the separation of church and state. Christian fundamentalists reject the discoveries of biology and physics about the origins of life and insist that the Book of Genesis is scientifically sound in every detail. At a time when many are throwing off ...

A brief nineteen days of austerity in a year filled with festive holy day celebrations, the Bahai fast is assigned a spiritual significance that can be puzzling to those from religious traditions, cultures and societies in which fasting is not widely practiced. Every hour of the nineteen days of this sunrise-to-sunset fast, the Bahai scriptures tell us, is endowed with a special virtue, inscrutable to all except [God]. Even the act of rising at dawn to pray, Bahaullah explains in a prayer revealed specifically for the Bahai fast, is a unique privilege: For Thine ardent lovers, Thou hast, according to Thy decree, reserved, at each daybreak, the cup of Thy remembrance.

Actually I mean it in the way it should mean. The word itself coincidence means several incidences linked to each other. Coincidence. And the word also is synchronisity. Chronos means time, synchronistic means synchronized in time. The goal of this book is to explain in very clear scientific terms first, that the nature of the creative mind of the universe. If you want to call that mind God or Spirit or the infinite being. It doesnt matter what you refer to it, but the nature of the creative mind of the universe is synchronistic . And when we experience a coincidence, we have for a moment glimpsed the infinite mind, the creative mind of the universe. And in fact all religious traditions talk about something called the state of grace. In the state of grace, God is supposedly eavesdropping on your internal dialog, listening to what you are saying. And not only listening to what you are saying but granting you this spontaneous fulfillment of your most cherished dreams and desires ...

Communitarian thinkers in the 1980s such as Michael Sandel and Charles Taylor argued that Rawlsian liberalism rests on an overly individualistic conception of the self. Whereas Rawls argues that we have a supreme interest in shaping, pursuing, and revising our own life-plans, he neglects the fact that our selves tend to be defined or constituted by various communal attachments (e.g., ties to the family or to a religious tradition) so close to us that they can only be set aside at great cost, if at all. This insight led to the view that politics should not be concerned solely with securing the conditions for individuals to exercise their powers of autonomous choice, as we also need to sustain and promote the social attachments crucial to our sense of well-being and respect, many of which have been involuntarily picked up during the course of our upbringing. First, however, let us review the ontological or metaphysical debate over the self that led to this political conclusion. In an influential ...

Few topics are more likely to cause argument among doctors than the influence of religion on healing, but a survey suggests most physicians bring their ideas about religion into their practice, U.S. researchers reported on Monday.
Its frustrating, of course. Because there is still this opinion that atheists shouldnt be allowed or that they can be allowed as long as they shut up and dont say anything. But thats not fair. If you post something ridiculous about religion on a public forum, I have every right to mock you for it. I am in complete agreement with PZ and others that religions deserve to be mocked. That they do not deserve special treatment and should be questioned. What is so wrong with asking people to just think about it? To educate themselves? Read The God Delusion and then if you still want to keep believing in your God - fine. (By fine, of course, I mean that you can do what you want even though I will still think you are exceedingly silly.) But at least be aware that you have a choice - that there is material out there available so you can make an actual, educated decision. I dont see how anyone can choose to really believe in falsehoods instead of in the glorious truth. I just want people to see that ...

1. Restrictive Regulation. The Soviet state subjected religious organizations and believers to restrictive regulation and vague laws that left room for arbitrary enforcement. Religious organizations also faced attempts to reduce or manipulate religious influence in the public sphere in favor of the state. How have these regulations been dismantled or to what extent do they remain? To what extent do mindsets of state control of belief and believers remain?. 2. Effects of the Soviet State on Majority Religions. To survive, majority religious organizations were forced to adapt and cooperate with the Soviet state. To what extent has this compromised or limited the ability of religious organizations to function independently in the post-Soviet era? Has this had an effect on the trust of the public on religious organizations or on expectations of how religious organizations should interact in public life? How have majority religions approached their relationship with the state?. 3. Restrictions and ...

See also: Jihadism, for the more recent militant political version of Islam. Islam is a monotheistic Abrahamic religion based on the teachings of Muhammad (or often Mohammed and other variants), a seventh century Arab who, according to Muslim belief, was an agent of divine action. Muhammad was also born to the descendents of Abraham. Muhammed claimed to have received revelations from Allah via the archangel Gabriel, which were written in the Quran (Koran) - thus forming the core teachings of Islam. The word Islam means submission (to Allah) in Arabic. Islam as originally designed in the Quran presents itself as an Abrahamic faith and has Moses in it[1] as well as Jesus as a prophet in Islam,[2] but not as Gods son. Islam has been criticized for some time, due to its demanding of strict submissiveness especially of women, and its predisposition to being violent suspicious of other faiths and attacking other faiths deemed a threat to Islam, as a result there have been over 16,000 terrorist ...
The Brief RCOPE is a 14-item measure of religious coping with major life stressors. As the most commonly used measure of religious coping in the literature, it has helped contribute to the growth of knowledge about the roles religion serves in the process of dealing with crisis, trauma, and transition. This paper reports on the development of the Brief RCOPE and its psychometric status. The scale developed out of Pargaments (1997) program of theory and research on religious coping. The items themselves were generated through interviews with people experiencing major life stressors. Two overarching forms of religious coping, positive and negative, were articulated through factor analysis of the full RCOPE. Positive religious coping methods reflect a secure relationship with a transcendent force, a sense of spiritual connectedness with others, and a benevolent world view. Negative religious coping methods reflect underlying spiritual tensions and struggles within oneself, with others, and with the divine

Islam is fundamentally in its very nature a natural religion. Throughout the Quran Gods signs (Ayats) are referred to as the natural phenomenon, the law and order of the universe, the exactitudes and consequences of the relations between natural phenomenon in cause and effect. Over and over, the stars, sun, moon, earthquakes, fruits of the earth and trees are mentioned as the signs of divine power, divine law and divine order. Even in the Ayeh of Noor, divine is referred to as the natural phenomenon of light and even references are made to the fruit of the earth. During the great period of Islam, Muslims did not forget these principles of their religion. Alas, Islam which is a natural religion in which Gods miracles are the very law and order of nature drifted away and is still drifting away, even in Pakistan, from science which is the study of those very laws and orders of nature.……Islam is a natural religion of which the Ayats are the universe in which we live and move and have our ...
RNS) The latest in a long line of studies, now numbering in the hundreds, if not thousands, shows that church attendance is good for your health.. Published in May by researchers from Vanderbilt University, the study found that middle-aged adults who attended religious services at least once in the past year were half as likely to die prematurely as those who didnt.. Using data from a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the studys researchers examined 10 biological stress markers among 5,449 men and women aged 46 to 65. They then compared those markers with respondents self-reported religious service attendance and found a correlation between religious service attendance, lower stress and longevity.. The study adds to mounting scientific findings on the subject. A far larger study, of 74,534 women, published last year found that attending a religious service more than once per week was associated with 33 percent lower ...

From the Psalms in the Bible to the sacred rivers in Hinduism, the natural world has been integral to the worlds religions. John Grim and Mary Evelyn Tucker contend that todays growing environmental challenges make the relationship ever more vital. This primer explores the history of religious traditions and the environment, illustrating how religious teachings and practices both promoted and at times subverted sustainability. Subsequent chapters examine the emergence of religious ecology, as views of nature changed in religious traditions and the ecological sciences. Yet the authors argue that religion and ecology are not the province of institutions or disciplines alone. They describe four fundamental aspects of religious life: orienting, grounding, nurturing, and transforming. Readers then see how these phenomena are experienced in a Native American religion, Orthodox Christianity, Confucianism, and Hinduism. Ultimately, Grim and Tucker argue that the engagement of religious communities is ...

Harris: The crucial point of confusion is that we have been sold this meme of Islamaphobia where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry toward Muslims as people and that is intellectually ridiculous.. Affleck: …So you are saying that Islamaphobia is not a real thing?. Maher: Well, its not a real thing when we do it…It truly isnt.. Harris: …Ben, we have to be able to criticize bad ideas.. Affleck: Of course we do!. Harris: But Islam is the mother lode of bad ideas at the moment.. Maher: Thats just a fact.. Affleck: Thats not a fact! Its an ugly thing to say.. This debate about Islam is ubiquitous in the West and I think it points to Girards warning against Western arrogance. Sam Harris is very careful to say that he isnt suffering from Islamaphobia when he critiques Islam. Maher even states that when they critique Islam it truly isnt being Islamaphobic. But then Harris goes on to say that Islam is the mother lode of bad ideas at the moment and Maher ...
HB 305, An Act relating to a mandatory exemption for certain residences owned by a religious organization, was filed by Rep. Berta Gardner (D-Anchorage) to undo legislation that Clary had successfully lobbied for in 2006, with the willing assistance of then-Sen. Ben Stevens (R-Anchorage), who wrote the legislation, and then-Sen.-Lyda Green (R-Wasilla), who sponsored it. The 2006 legislation had broadened state law on property tax exemptions for religious organizations to include church-owned housing occupied by religious school teachers and leaders of church ministries like music. It also broadened the definition of a minister to include anyone ordained according to the standards of the religious organization who was employed by that organization to carry out a ministry - essentially permitting religious organizations that were so inclined to ordain anyone they wanted to claim held a ministry, and for church-owned housing occupied by that minister to be tax-exempt. The 2006 legislation ...

The Eastern Rite Catholic Churches are churches that follow the ancient liturgical traditions of the East, while being in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church and placing themselves under the ultimate authority of the Bishop of Rome. Some of these churches, like the Orthodox Church, follow the Byzantine tradition, while others follow other liturgical traditions. The history of each Eastern Rite Catholic church is unique, some having sided with Rome at the time of the Great Schism and some being joined to Rome after that time. They are sometimes referred to as Uniates, a term which many Eastern Catholics reject as derrogatory. Many of these churches have a direct non-Catholic (usually Orthodox or Oriental counterpart. Others exist only within the Catholic Communion. ...
In his recent State of the Union Address, U.S. president George W. Bush strongly defended his countrys massive bombing of Afghanistan. In the course of his speech, he referred more than once to the concept of civilized people standing together in order to combat the barbarism - of whom? - The uncivilized Muslim peoples. He didnt quite say that, but it is undoubtedly what he meant.. Since the Middle Ages, when Crusaders left the shores of Europe on horseback, on foot, and in sailing boats - not F16 fighters and B52 bombers - Western writers, pseudo-intellectuals, speechmakers and self- identified luminaries on Islam and the Middle East, have indulged in an endless stream of rhetoric directed against the supposed barbarism of Islam and the Muslim World.. In his book called The Liberal Islam, Charles Kurzman points out that Western racism poses a serious challenge to the renaissance of Islam, because for centuries, the West has constructed an image of Islam as the Other, identifying ...
I think you are spot on in one sense, that Islam is a sociopathic religion contrived by a sociopath, either as an historic person or contrived mythological entity. However, I think youre being much to understanding of the Islamopanderers in thinking that they dont understand. I think many of them understand perfectly and that theyre sociopaths themselves utilizing Islam (and whatever else) simply as a tool to generate, maintain and protect their own malignant narcissism, sanctimony and grandiosity. I say this as evidenced by their abject, instantaneous and explosive rage or, to put it mildly, their inappropriate affect, over those disagreeing with them about Islam, Ben Affleck, for instance. The Internet is rife with videos of leftists (and Muslims) going berserk when challenged about Islam/Muslims. These are people defending their own pathology, not people who give a rats about Islam or any other leftist and or liberal cause.. ...
It was revealed this week that a Scottish NHS trust is paying the Catholic Church £30,000 a year to provide out-of-hours spiritual care, largely to ensure that dying patients receive the last rites.. The Edinburgh Secular Society condemned the deal, saying it found it strange that the well-funded Catholic Church requires the tax-payers of Scotland to top up its coffers.. Garry McLelland, chair of the ESS said: I would find it strange if the Catholic Church was to leave one of its members lying in hospital without providing a service because the state refuses to foot the bill.. NHS Lothian has entered into the service level agreement with the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh. While the Church banks the money, members of the clergy receive £10 per week for their work. A previous arrangement, whereby a chaplain from the RC Church was employed at a salary of £56,000 a year was scrapped because of poor on-call service..

Ive been watching your Jesus or Muhammad series on ABN. And I do agree that radical Islam is a serious problem. However, I do not think we should condemn an entire religion based upon its most radical elements. When you condemn Islam as a whole, you instantly condemn 1.5 billion people worldwide. Here is how I view it: Youre never going to convince the vast majority of Muslims to abandon their religious faith. Therefore, it would make more since to attack Osama Bin Ladens version of Islam and build bridges with Muslims who adhere to a more peaceful Islam. The average Muslim does not believe in killing women, children and innocent men. But, of course, you will argue that Bin Ladens version of Islam is authentic Islam, which traces its roots back to Muhammad. But the average Muslim does not accept this interpretation of Islam. Why would you want to convince peaceful Muslims that radical Islam is authentic Islam? If you really want to stop Islamic terrorism you would build bridges with peaceful ...

American society is becoming non-religious at an ever-increasing rate. A 2017 study from the University of Kentucky estimated that as many as 26 percent of Americans are atheists and Pew polling has shown a rapid decline in religious affiliation, particularly among younger Americans. This decline of faith raises difficult questions about how increasingly secular Americans will live and structure their lives without the guidance of religious dictates.. Growing up Jewish, I’ve seen these questions play out in the Jewish community. According to Pew, 62 percent of American Jews say being Jewish is primarily about ancestry or culture, while only 15 percent say it is about religion (23 percent say both). Jewish synagogues, summer camps and youth organizations have continually diluted the faith aspect of Jewish identity. Theological study generally extends up to the Bar or Bat Mitzvah and is afterwards forgotten. Hebrew is taught only to the point of phonetic reading ability and basic ...
It seems like most people I know dont seem to attend any type of religious services. We attend church, not every weekend, but pretty regularly. Were trying to pick godparents for our youngest and it has turned into an act of Congress since no one seems to be active or even attend church. It got me a little curious if others attend church/ mosque/ synagogue/ etc. Also if you dont me asking, what religion? ETA: I consider any type of belief (such as pagan, wiccan, etc) as a religious belief. So if you attend any sort of group regularly, that would count in my book.
The real confusion arises because of the application of the Sunnah. Several ahadith allude to the fact that death is the appropriate punishment for those who leave Islam. Muslims believe that there is a duality in Islam of the Quran and Sunnah. Objectively speaking, there can be no real duality between the two. The Quran (in Islam) is the undisputed word of God, which is recited today almost exactly as it was upon revelation. Ahadith arguably are forms of hearsay (what individuals claim they saw or overheard the prophet said and did). While aspects of the Sunnah may be valid, is it not inconceivable that the Caliphates following the death of the Prophet Mohammed created ahadith to consolidate political power, and use them as tools to control early Muslims? There is literally an entire science within Islam devoted to determining the validity of ahadith that is so complex that it confounds many Muslims. This duality has almost lead to the deification of the Prophet Mohammed among Muslims today. ...
Women are more inclined to believe that all religions are true as opposed to that only one is true or that there is very little truth to religion.. Married people are less likely to accept the notion of many religions being true when compared with only one, the findings suggested.. On Facebook, there is no expectation that ones likes be logically consistent and hidebound by tradition, said sociology researcher Paul K. McClure from Baylor University.. Religion, as a result, does not consist of timeless truths. Instead, the Facebook effect is that all spiritual options become commodities and resources that individuals can tailor to meet their needs, McClure added.. Social media users also are more likely to see it as acceptable for others of their faith tradition to practice other religions.. However, the so-called spiritual tinkerers are not necessarily more likely to believe all religions are true.. Social networking site users are between 50 to 80 percent more likely to be flexible ...
Of course despite the subtitle theres more to religious conflict than that between religions. There is also the conflict within religions. Eliza Griswolds clear discomfort with the image which evangelical Protestants were projecting to the Muslim world of Christianity is an instance of that. But so is the strife which emerges within and across the sects of Islam. The standard model posits the rise of a Fundamentalist Islam at war with local Sufi traditions. There is a great deal to this story, as far as it goes. But there is a precision and clarity with Fundamentalist Islam, which is really often world normative Islam shifted toward a Saudi Salafi tinge, which does not exist with moderate Islam or Sufi Islam. By its very nature locally inflected Islam is diverse, and cant be bracketed under a catchall term on any substantive grounds except to point to its negation of Salafi or reformist Islam. The rise of internationalist Salafi Islams is another case of cultural globalization, and its ...
This book offers a trenchant examination of the career of Islam among the blacks of America. No one has offered a convincing explanation of why Islam spread among Blackamericans (a coinage he explains and defends) but not among white Americans or Hispanics. The assumption has been that there is an African connection. In fact, the book shows, none of the distinctive features of African Islam appear in the proto-Islamic, black nationalist movements of the early 20th century. Rather, Islam owes its momentum to the distinctively American phenomenon of

It is an ancient custom of the Catholic Church that at the Baptism of infants, there must be at least one Catholic godparent and not more than two, one of each gender, chosen to assist the parent in raising the child in the faith and to represent the expanded spiritual family of the child and the role of the Church as the mother.. Later, godparents help the parents so that children will profess the faith chosen for them and live up to it. Their role is to ensure that the rich and beautiful faith of the Catholic Church is passed on to the child in the most loving and authentic way possible.. Corpus Christi Churchs guidelines for godparents correspond to the Universal Law of the Church. See Canon 874 and Canon 893 of the Code of Canon Law.. ...
