Perhaps if the world trained Aikido together and included all of those religions (and the others) the world could be a nicer place.
Todd, how on Earth are you going to include every single religion in to Aikido? Aikido is about bringing people together, and nothing has done the opposite more than religion. It has absolutely no place in the dojo, outside of what an individual brings with them from outside. No religion should be pushed on anyone..
