Default As Bad As Racism?

Do you believe the hatred towards people of (or lack there-of) religion falls into the same category as racism, sexism, etc?

Just wanted to see some discussion on this topic, which recently came to mind.

it only falls into that category when one group tries to push their beliefs onto another. u can believe in anything you want so long as i can believe in what i do and we can have a civil conversation about the sorts.

no, it has to do with reasoning and actual causalities related to the characteristics of belief/non-belief rather than for example the negative results of the socioeconomic situation of a group of people perceived as causalities related to their sex or race.

I don't religious people for being religious. I'm just frustrated by their general incapacity to think critically.

Also, religion is a choice, whether you're indoctrinated into your beliefs or not. Sex, race, etc. aren't.

Its all discrimination. Sexism, racism, and stuff like that. Its all at an equal level. Its all bad. people need a conscience and learn to respect and the world would be a much better place.

I think the emphasis should be placed on earning respect than simply giving it.

Respect should be given to everyone, regardless of the decisions they made in the past. But that is just my opinion.

I get what you're saying, but if someone has firm values (whether they are religious or atheist,) those values become a part of you, so in many cases it is may not so much a choice, but as a part of who they are, just like gender and race are. But don't mind my ramblings.
