    As I know it there is Sufi sect that of Hazarat Inayat Khan's I believe, those that teach the Dances of Universal Peace, they celebrate and honor all religions.

    I believe the Renewal form of Judaism, encompasses, embraces various religions.

    Unitarian Universalists, the meetings of theirs I've attended are quite intertaith.

    It has been said here that Liberal Quakers, are open to various religions.

    Unity, the churches I've attended are typically quite open. At our church we explore different religions with our youth, and have a couple of annual interfaith events.

    The Bahai, have an aspect of interfaith, but it seems to me are more in line of saying they are all of similar nature and the Bahai are the current most upto date culmination of 'past' religions.

    I know many Hindu temples have a picture of Jesus, and regard him as a guru.

    So that one is sort of a little cross faith polination, a limited interfaith?


    Which others? How accepting is your place of worship of other beliefs?

    And of those that are interfaith, is there still a boundary? eg, not going Pagan, or Wiccan, or Greek/Roman/Norse.... whereby your 'interfaith' like vegetarianism today.....lacto/ovo etc.

    not sure how places of worship can be interfaith really.

    for example some people worship God other worship satan, these are in complete opposite how and why would they want to worship together ?

    As to the Vegan, Vegetarian, lacto ovo piscean vegetarian discussion...

    Completely interfaith being Vegan, no meat, no animal products, won't wear leather, won't eat honey.

    Now those exteme intertaith folks proably aren't going to worship together with the satanists, but accept the satanists as another belief, and can honor their decision.

    But when it comes to Satanists....what percentage of folks worship Satan? Less than 1/10 of 1% I'd guess and of those that do, how many do it just to piss their family members or friends off?

    Wiccan works (you don't have to believe in the Godess to join, but it helps with the nudity). Like you said Satanism really doesn't.

    Except for the liberal end (Quaker, Unitarianism, Unity) most Protestant chrches are out.

    Peace, Radarmark

    an extreme example I know, but if people believe strongly in contending idea and they get together they may well end up fighting, in which case you would need to employ security at such gatherings.

    Alexanderine Wicca. Go to your local metaphysical bookstore and ask if they know of any Wiccan meetings.

    I will meet you there (Ha Ha!)....radarmark

    I noticed all the other threads that touched on anything Left Hand Path-ish was very old, so I'll leave them alone.

    Except for Theistic Satanists, Satanism does not recognize any godform in any respect (no, not even Satan). I see it more of as an atheistic, and at times antitheistic philosophy and lifestyle.

    Im Lutheran we dont believe any god will do ya or get ya there ..

    the Lutheran faith is a spectator faith meaning we dont have to do anything to be saved because Jesus has done it all perfectly for us we simply keep our eyes on jesus and what he has done for us .
    other faiths teach you how to please god and earn heaven. Lutherans
    are taught by the bible and our pastors to simply trust Jesus whos work alone HAS ACCOMPLISHED all that for us..

    its really comforting to know its not up to us God did it alreay for us AND PERFECTLY in Christ Jesus ..
