Re: Poll: Should religion play a part in an aikido curriculum?

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..
I didn't say anything about pushing a religion on anyone.

You say that nothing has done the opposite of bringing people together more than religion...

Is that the religion or the people?

It's far easier to blame the religion than to admit that the people are using it as a tool for their own evils.
