Re: Insight into Anti-Muslim Violence in Sri Lanka

This whole idea that religion is just an aspect of nationalism is totally insane. 
It really needs to be discredited and rethought. Religion is ultimately an individual 
choice. OK if you are born into a religious family then try it out but, like the Buddha 
you have to decide for yourself. It goes far beyond unethical group values. You might 
as well say that if you are born as a cow you must be a Hindu, if you are born as a 
camel you have to be a Muslim, if you are born as a dog you have to be a Christian - as 
a cat you must be a Buddhist....OK I'll just stop there!
