Is it ok to give someone a religious gift if you don’t agree with their religion?

Question by Skepticat (UKB Operative): Is it ok to give someone a religious gift if you don’t agree with their religion?
In my case, I often give my family and friends Christian-oriented gifts because they are all Christian. As an atheist, however, I often feel uncomfortable doing this because I feel that I might be encouraging them to persist in their beliefs. Generally, I feel that a gift should be chosen with the receiver in mind but is this an exception?

If it’s difficult for you to empathize, imagine if you had a loved one who is a Scientologist. Would you give them Scientology-oriented gifts? Even if you really hate everything Scientology stands for and think it’s dangerous?

no because it is hypocritical

If the church separated from the state, why can a business be civilly liable regarding religious beliefs?

Question by Joe B: If the church separated from the state, why can a business be civilly liable regarding religious beliefs?
How did religious beliefs earn so much respect whereas if their infringed upon, an individual may have potential recourse.

All of this with the understanding that the church should in no way be affiliated with the state.
Also are there any other countries that allow citizens to break their laws in the name of “religious beliefs” or are we (USA) alone with that methodology?
I’ll assume the logic is discrimination, if religion is separate, how is it still labeled discrimination if the law doesn’t recognize religion?

What clause or provision entertains discrimination claims regarding religion?

Best answer:

Answer by TyranusXX
Well I think you are incorrect. I business can not be held liable in regards to religious beliefs. Perhaps only if the didn’t hire you because you were a certain religion then that would be discrimination. They can stop you from practicing your religion on the job if it interferes with the job any time they wish.

Not sure how other countries handle this issue.

If religion is separate, how is it still labeled discrimination if the law doesn’t recognize religion? The Law does in fact recognize religions,its in the Constitution that the Law is supposed to let people excersize their religion freely.

What clause or provision entertains discrimination claims regarding religion? The same ones that apply to all discrimination claims

At this new age, many intellectuals falsely claim to be experts in spiritual knowledge. Some believe that knowledge of scientific thought from religious texts to guide the religion or the scriptures as spiritual knowledge. Others continue to discuss with his knowledge of the experience or scientific knowledge of religious texts taught in some universities. But few people are saints who were witnesses in detail by withholding his knowledge of the texts of the thought of religion, arts and science and say it can not be expressed in worlds.

Spiritual knowledge is absolute knowledge, while religious arts, and science knowledge of human concerns. Spiritual wisdom is knowledge that comes naturally himself, while the religious arts, and knowledge of the human sciences must be learned from others, civilization or university.

Divine wisdom is endless and always the same thing with him and our internal correspondence of the entire universe is in the pace of work without fault. Religious arts, science and human knowledge are limited and will continue to change corresponding to human needs, culture and lifestyle of individuals.

Religious arts, science and human knowledge in the language is spoken and can be stored in the form of thoughts in mind, so it can be communicated and learned from others. It has its past and future.
Spiritual knowledge is beyond the spoken language. It exists in the astral body of man and fails to be stored in the form of thoughts in mind, so it can not be communicated and learned from others. It exists in the present moment in Astral body. Astral body made it obvious what is required. Astral body and spiritual knowledge remains hidden in the back of our minds to thoughts and thoughts of languages and can be experienced just to keep in mind retained consciousness.

The withdrawal of the attention of many subjects and objects of the world by controlling the senses of sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing through meditation, the truth of our religion, arts and scientific knowledge can be an experience, and thus our individual lives are linked to it. Also experience comes with sustained attention in the consciousness of those holy life experiences and spiritual absolute knowledge. Since the individual life and absolute life can not be known at the same time, people can not cage secret spiritual knowledge and its astral body put into words.

Our adorable religious texts of many religions are not a divine wisdom, but the statements of prophets, to provide technical testify to experience spiritual knowledge in beyond consciousness and astral body that is subtle world of oneness of god. Simple study of religious texts may give us religious scholar who continue to imagine it as by its level of practice it.

But knowing the true spiritual knowledge is one who practices the words of the prophets of his religion on his life in sub-conscious. The mere thought of carrying spiritual texts or spiritual values of people serves no purpose. Consciously Think how many people visit each day to his spiritual guide and continue to pray. A few reach the destinations that are willing to forgo life linked to the world and dissolve into the absolute life.

Those interested in the divine wisdom of the oneness of God and his life called absolute mind, choose any spiritual technique and practice it with intense faith and fair. Once you are ripe for spiritual knowledge, spiritual knowledge of your astral body is correct and you continue to attract the true spiritual path itself. Which technique is perfect for the spiritual growth that will lead you to your astral body and his spiritual knowledge? No technique is perfect as it is impure language teacher came into it. Best technique for you is that loved by your conscious mind – nothing in the deepest spirit can be forced.

I practiced and tried to experience yoga based on Patanjali who lived since thousands three to five. Patanjali is founder of Yoga to stages of spiritual knowledge of the astral body. Based on it, I wrote four books of yoga for serious seeker of spirituality for self-improvement. All my work is on behalf of the Oneness of God and can be considered complete and free.

Spiritual Leaders Sharing Their Knowledge with the World

Tibetan Buddhist leader His Holiness the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa suggests that spiritual leaders connect to the general public. Rather than connecting solely to their own groups of students, the Karmapa says spiritual leaders must reach beyond them to engage the larger population, and asserts that transmission of spiritual power happens through conscious, positive human relationships formed with the intention of benefiting the entire human family.

Religious News 10-18

It’s been a busy week for the god-fearing. Mormon leader Dallin H. Oaks, said the backlash against Mormons (for their direct involvement in getting the anti-gay Proposition 8 passed in California) is similar to the treatment blacks went through after the civil rights movement. That’s right, he’s refusing rights to a group of people while using those rights himself – AND – claiming he’s being discriminated against in the process.
