Kabayan,

Yes, sometimes I fell like I was in hell when educatting my children, but hey ! I am enjoying it for some other time.........that's the entertaining side of educatingchildren.

I know, I have three of my own.

I need your opinion regarding the meaning of two English words, Do you think "Campaigning" and "Imposing" have similar meaning ?

I don't think so. It's not the same, at least for me, to try to convince someone that something is right, be it religion, way of clothing, even food, than to force someone to accept that it is right just because somebody say so.

G'day Kabayan,

I agree with SS&T.

To campaign for a thing is an attempt to convince a person to accept that thing.

To impose a thing is to force acceptance of that thing.

Sara & Stannum, Thank you for your explanation. I really apreciate it.

we have the words educate, campaign, impose, and forcing. Those words are methods to change somebody else's knowledge, attitude, and skill.

I am so sure that the vast majority of muslim schollars all over the world would use the method of educate and campaign.
I believe the same to be the case of Christian scholars.

There are some fundamentalist Christians giving the rest of fundamentalist Christians and Christians in general a bad name in the same way that some fundamentalist Muslims give the rest of the fundamentalist Muslims and Muslims in general a bad name.

I am so curious, how can some minorities give a bad name to vast majorities ? It happens right ?

Yes it does.

But I think that the reason is that they make so much noise and scandal than the real people who care

for their children and for their family, who work, and who are essentially good people no matter how

different their beliefs are.

There is an old saying;

The empty vessel makes the most noise.

Healthy people who are balanced and able to comprehend society as a whole are able to adopt a live and let live approach to life.

Strange proselytisers overwhelmed by what they see around them often focus on some small schism and create a problem so that they can solve it. Media outlets ravenous for controversy constantly focus on such weirdoids while the rest of just live and let live.
