People who take religion responsibly have my respect.
People who can't take it responsible, don't have my respect.
Not all birds are of the same feather.

I myself am a very religious person, but as a matter of fact we debate here and two side of the coins are needed to be verdict. Religion is a certain aspect that talks of peace and equality and among everyone- and it should be respected, no getting away. I believe there are cynic believers but have you ever not wondered why do we have the curteosy to say 'don't do that for humanity'? It's also one sort of religion inside us, that forbids when doing anything bad. If there wasn't any indemaned affect of religion this world would have alot time ago gone all brutal- with one brother killing another and fighing over a remainig piece of 'coin'. See, this also comes that what happens to Pakistan then? It's a toally Muslim state but with nothing but awkward sentiments towards the next era they may percieve. They are in a position of just fighting for 'jihad' and that's why its a culture of hate and spite, so we talk of them on forums and open debates, it's a good recognition of their's on global arena. What a pride!! Even if you are not a true believer or are a cynic, such unsubstanitated mirors occur, so often, that you loose the hair off your head. Whatever the religion you adopt a lesson always learned is: dicipline the practice of peace and labour. That in order for a life of failures and success, is a big dillema and on another perspective, no getting away from the fact that religions speak of the common people, not of the presidents and parliment member.

On a personal note, yes, i agree some religions are crazinly insane, but then again are you not aware of them? IF you are nearer to any of them, you'll just acclaim 'hell no'...so they don't come in any categorie except for just the sophistaced and more leading term 'religion'. Religion somethings good not messed up cynics...

Yes, unless the question is: Does EVERY Religion deserve respect, in which case, HELL NO.
There are some just insane religions out there, people who worship the force, of star wars fame, etc...
