When are people going to stop calling any religion that doesn't match their own "a religion of the devil"?

One of my favorite quotes is: "There are plenty of good reasons for fighting, but no good reason ever to hate without reservation, to imagine that God Almighty Himself hates with you, too." (Kurt Vonnegut)

Too often, people hate what they don't understand or what they've been told to hate without trying to understand it. Very frustrating.

Everyone's religious books should be respected
