AN IDEAL RELIGION


The tenets of one ideal religion would be the following:

All humans belong to the same family: Homo sapiens.

One must treat all people with respect and kindness.

Compassionate actions are among the primary virtues to be practiced.

All the different ways to find spiritual fulfillment (religious or secular) that have emerged in human culture deserve to be respected.

Among the evils that degrade the human heart is intolerance: religious, racial, and national.  However,  thoughts and acts that hurt and harm human beings are to be condemned.

Every adherent to the religionshould share a little of the bounties he/she has received with the less fortunate members of the human family,  and serve others in whatever way one can.

There will be not religious authority to include or exclude, punish or condemn any follower of the religionn.
