Are All Religions the Same?

People seem to be under the notion that all religions are the same, and nothing can be further from the truth.

This theological stance is reactionary in nature, seeking to balance the harsh cockiness of a vocal minority in a majority faith.  When religions are categorized into “wrong” or “right;” it’s understandable to take the naturally alternative view that they are, in fact, the same.

But saying that all religions are the same disintegrates all religions.  When something is everything, then it is nothing.

The best way to celebrate diversity, I think, is not to ignore our differences just because we’re uncomfortable; it is to get comfortable with difference.
