I don't think it's "replacing" it or anything, discrimination based on religion has probably been around just as long as discrimination based on race.

no simply because you can see "race" but not religion

ok racism is not dead but especially in canada and liberal portions of the usa (not the south) it surely is on the decline, with this being said i can understand people's opinions that discrimination based on religion isn't just been a new phenomena but i think that for all the leaps and bounds made in subjugating racism it's been replaced by religious tension

Religion based prejudice has been around forever, there's nothing new about it. Racism is just dominant in the US because of our history.

t's easy to get so caught up in the news of the day that one almost completely disregards the more sobering truths of history.

American history is littered with religious tensions, ebbs and flows of religiosity, revivalism, and the like. Don't mistake our present religious tensions for something that is "new" to our history. Once upon a time we passed an amendment to the Constitution prohibitng the sale of alchohol.

People need to respect each others opinions about faith. They may think that there religion is right and everything but you shouldn't say your an idiot or dumb for believing a certain way. People need to learn some respect.

Exactly, lets not forget how the Romans gleefully sent Christians to die in the arenas just because they were Christians. Hating people just because of their faith is certainly nothing new. Christians have been killing pagans for most of their existence as a major religion.

Although I agree with many of the posters here who point out that religious conflict has been going on since virtually the beginning of religion itself, I would note that, for the first time, countries around the world, as well as the United States are becoming increasingly secular with the growin population of agnostics/atheists/non-religious. With this influx of atheists in a population that has traditionally very religious, there's a new breed of religious conflict -- instead of one religion fighting another, Christianity in the United States seems to be at odds with the new secular vibe, while the non-religious population is fighting to make the government a wholly secular entity

Yeah, it's called the end times.

It's all Biblical prophecy. There will be a one world government before you know it, and Christians will have to choose wether to be apart of that government or side with God. Then the mark of the beast comes into play and all that. Many will Christians will be killed because of it.
