So they can be interpreted the way they want to? if that is the case, then how is it that the one who interprets their religious scriptures as condoning premarital relation is wrong, but then again, you can go on twisting and curving those very same words to fit your own needs? Why is this picking and choosing, if I may ask? It's extremely hypocritical that some people think it's okay for them to pick and choose what they wish to follow and what they do not, but for others - it's not applicable.
 
True..I do agree...specifically each different religion tht has a 'God' according to their 'religions' depiction / interpretation of their 'God' or 'Way of living'....depending on which human beings are participating wth this word 'God' as 'their God' according to 'their religion' within differentiations of belief and faith,will naturally make a difference to the interpretation/definition of the word 'God'....There is no need to (blindly) believe in anything - tha is the fundamental of science. That is the sceitific apporch to realy is do not (just blindly) believe, inquire.... The moment we believe (blindly), inquiry stops.... I think we should,keep your mind open - neither believe nor disbelieve. Just remain alert and search and doubt everything until you come to a point which is indubitable - that's what truth is....

It is said that enlightenment comes in a flash.LOL
But it is not easy to be able to hold on to it unless we have the capacity.

yup, but fearing for ur own religion should be present in all religions right? then why is islam particularly so cautious about it?
 
and secondly if u see it that way- its is quite ok if someone else comes to my family and takes up my religion, but it will NOT  be okay when my daughter will do the same with other religions if she marries outside- encourage conversion to islam, but discourage the other way round.....koi mere ghar pe aakar rahe aur mere jaise chale to thik hai, par mere ghar se koi aisa nahi karga dusro ke ghar jaake..............thats hypocricy in my opinion.


Just wanted to add one point that this term "hypocrisy" gets thrown around a lot. Sometimes without caring about the meaning. I thought that one is hypocrite when one claims to have certain beliefs, but, in fact, that person doesnt have those beliefs, etc (I may be wrong about the meaning).

So how is one hypocrite if someone from certain religion has some beliefs and follows them strictly?

^^ ok I see you meant double standards. My point was that word "hypocrisy" gets thrown around a lot even when it doesn't fit. (I too do it many times).

Regarding bias, selfishness and all. I already made a different topic.

Regarding double standards: I will post some views later. Is having double standards always bad according to you? or it is bad only when it is used in derogatory way for one group.?
