We Have Different Perspectives

Editor:

Faith and truth properly defined, with a little reason and logic from the faithful, and the world may see a much higher degree of understanding of religious differences.

We may be able to realize that it is the dogma of faith that drives our attitudes and values.

The religious leaders of all faiths preach to their followers that the path to truth is through faith. Is this really possible? Faith is defined as a belief in something for which there is no proof. Truth requires proof.

There is no way to reconcile the difference except through semantics. If the religious individuals really want to be honest with themselves they will need a little backbone, and question their faith. If this happens with enough religions, the result could very well be that reason and logic will prevail. We may not all agree on each others values, but we can accept them in most cases because our experiences in life give us different perspectives.
