    Religions seem to require some anchoring in history. Speaking of a beginning helps religions to achieve some rationality because every religion points to the unfathomable divide between human concrete reality and the divine. By doing so, religions dig their roots into particular cultures. Most of them aim at glorifying their respective cultures thus placing each particular culture above the rest. No wonder racism is so closely associated with religion. But as the spread of religion takes place, the narrative must be altered in order to account for diversity. Even Mormons have had to do something about it once dark skinned believers started to come to their fold from outside of Utah.

    If you look at the history of religion you will see acts that range from the most inhuman to the most enlightened....it is up to the individual to choose which one they want to represent them. The reason religion comes across as "racist" or "biased" is that each one excludes or ridicules those that don't believe in it.

    God is who God is, but Religion is created by man. If by "proper" religion, you mean the main stream religions (Jew, Christian, Muslim), there really is only one stipulation for them, and that is to love God and to love your neighbour as yourself. As we are human we cannot possibly attain this ideal though many of us stive. So religion is born and rules are made and biases are formed in the minds of men..... and so on.

    Blessings to you my friend.

    Not in the Pagan religion- we respect everyone, difference makes us ( Pagans) who we are- very accepting of all types of people.
