How come the big three monotheistic faiths;Islam,Judaism and Christianity are always under attack?

this is what the media basically portrays Islam=terrorism, evil, radical, divisive. Christianity= unintelligent, non-loving and harshly judgemental, money-making institution, Judaism…well where should I start, anti-semitism, holocaust, obsessed with money. Why isn’t Hinduism, Buddhism, Animism, Shintoism, Taoism and other religions ever “attacked” or mentioned in the media?

  1. The Hindus come in for a bit of stick too.
    Buddhism, Shinto, Animism and Taoism are basically methods of self improvement and respecting nature. They do not get involved in politics so much as the 3 faiths that you mentioned.

  2. The media doesn’t portray the religions like that; people’s ill-informed and preconceived notions about the religions make those claims. Intelligent people who research the religions (including Buddhism, Hinduism, Shintoism, etc.) understand that certain verses of any religious literature can be contorted to fit biased interpretations.

  3. Good question.
    My dear you have to know the truth. After coming islam and qur’an other religions become void. So there is no relation between Islam and christianity/judaism.
    Regarding relgions of idolators, it has no relation with islam/christianity and judaism.
    No muslim is a muslim who does not believe in Jesus, Moses. So where is the question of ‘hate’
    We believe in Abraham, Isaq, Ishmail, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be on all of them). WE DO NOT DISCRIMINATE any of them and this is the beauty of islam.
    Qura’an (Chapter 2 Al-Baqarah :136)
    Say: “We believe in Allah and that which is revealed to us; and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants, and that which was given to Moses, Jesus and other Prophets from their Lord. We do not discriminate any of them, and to Allah we have surrendered ourselves (in Islam).”
    Belief which can be understood with COMMON SENSE IS ISLAM else false belief.
    Qura’an (Al-Fatah 48:28)
    It is He who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the religion of truth, so that He may exalt this religion over all other religions: and sufficient is Allah as a witness.[28]

    • There is NOTHING, NO THING in the Qur’an that voids Judaism or Christianity. If this was so, then the verse you quoted would also be void as these are prophets/messengers of Christianity and Judaism. How can we believe in what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, etc., etc., etc., if what they brought has become void?

  4. Because Hinduism, Buddhism, Animism, Shintoism, Taoism aren’t the dominant religions in our society. No one’s saying the Indian media can’t go after Hinduism or the Tibetan media can’t expose the evils of…Buddhism.

  5. Probably because Islam is the source of terrorism and divisiveness in the world today, Christianity is definitely the source of ignorance and judgment (the other side of righteousness), and Judaism, well any group that maintains that they are the Chosen Ones has some serious issues and deserves to be ragged mercilessly.
    Hinduism, on the other hand, has so many gods and other deities that they can’t decide who they should be bowing down to, while Buddhism doesn’t even have a god to fight with anyone about (and doesn’t that say something about the effect of faith in God). Shintoism was attacked, literally, in World War II, and the other religions aren’t in positions of power, so they don’t constitute “news”.
    If I were to boil it down to one thing, it would be God. This Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, etc was the nasty, violent, bloody, jealous, vengeful war god of the semitic people that turned out to be the Jews. This guy is a creep, and though prophets and saviors have been trying to “rehabilitate” him for thousands of years, he’s still the same horrible monster that they hauled out of the basement to help them escape the Pharaohs, and for all the work that’s been done on him over the millenniums, well, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

  6. It’s US Yahoo Answer that’s responsible for that misfortunate. American people know very well about Christianity and Islam which they have everyday in their lives – unlike Buddhism, Hinduism etc alien to them. So they are basically fair for not talking much about what they don’t concern and people don’t pay attention to.

  7. 1] Islam=terrorism, evil, radical, divisive.
    Its not the media that portrays them like this but the many from their own regions do. They kill and kidnap and have wars in the name of their God so how is the media wrong in calling them terrorist and evil?
    You forgot egoistic and selfishness. There are one or two Muslims answering this who are egoistic and arrogant in what they post so how is the media wrong?
    Not all Muslims are like this but those who shouts the loudest and its usually the bad guys gets their voice heard by the media.
    2] Christianity= unintelligent, non-loving and harshly judgemental, money-making institution,
    The same goes for Christians as Muslims. Many Christians are judgmental, only interested in converting others and collecting money for it. They are harsh to others faith and beliefs which makes them unintelligent.
    Not all Christians are like this but those who shouts the loudest and its usually the bad guys gets their voice heard by the media.
    3] Judaism…well where should I start, anti-semitism, holocaust, obsessed with money.
    I didn’t they were attacked as much, but they are always portrayed as the ones who have suffered the most. We know its true. They are defending their right to live so when they kill for it -the media portrays them negatively and when they don’t attack they are portrayed as sufferers.
    4] Hinduism,
    They are attacked by their own people so much that there is very little for the media to attack them with anyway. They are not an organized religion so who do you make responsible for a Hindu crime. Even if they have committed some crime the good within their religion outweighs the bad.
    5] Buddhism,
    They are yet to have state of their own so there is very little to attack them with. They have committed very few crimes which are worth reporting about. Even if they have committed some crime the good within their religion outweighs the bad.
    6] Animism, Shintoism, Taoism and other religions
    Who are they?
    What are they?
    Where are they ?
    Exactly!!
    7] Media
    The problem with the media is that they judge everyone according to the crimes they have committed and not why it was committed. They are the super moralist and righteous and heavenly press representing all things good.
