Hate in the name of the most holy.
Religion can uplift and stir the spirit, there is nothing quite like it. It can also toss the spirit into darkeness and sink the spirit, when it goes wrong, again there nothing quite like it.
In this section I am giving examples of religious persecution. It seems to happened to all faiths. It often happens at the hands of people of another faith. There is nothing quite like it.
This intolerance starts young. About a quarter of youths have been bullied because if their faith. 23% said they been bullied because of their faith. 9% said they had been singled out for wearing religious symbols. Emma-Jane Cross Chief executive of Beatbullying an anti bullying group said schools were cultivating "at best a lack of understanding and at worst a lack of tolerance of other faiths"(1 ).
It might be helpful to find out how do people view their God.
A 2006 Pew survey found people identify with one of four types of god.
According to survey the higher a countries religious population the less tolerance they seem to have for minorities. The survey was done by Gallup and covered 139 countries between 2006 and 20082(3 ) . This seems to be Contrary to many if not most religious teachings.
A yearly report in 2009 by the independent U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom listed 13 countries that have seriously violated religious liberty they are Burma, North Korea, China, Vietnam, Eritrea, Nigeria, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Their watch list has Afghanistan, Belarus, Cuba, Egypt, Indonesia, Laos, Russia, Somalia, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Venezuela (4 ).
A watchdog organization Minority Rights Group International rank Pakistan in 2007 as the country that showed the worst increase for threats against minorities. In Pakistan Christians are so frighten that are applying to by weapons. Hindu are also in danger extremist set fire to a Hindu temple and destroy several Hindu shops. A Hindu man was killed by a fellow worker when he was accused of insulting Islam. Even Shiite Muslims have been attacked since the Taliban embraced a violently anti-Shiite group, Lashkar-e-Janghvi. More than five hundred Shiite Muslims have killed(5 ).
