Can you give some examples of religions that don't glorify death?

Comment by Erock68la on March 18, 2015 at 9:19am

Who was it who said the only difference between a religion and a cult is about a hundred years?

Comment by Mai on March 19, 2015 at 9:09am

To me all religions ARE cults! 

A religion is an old cult. A cult is a new religious movement.

They ALL glorify death.

Regardless of Islam being a cult that glorifies death or not, it's still a religion.

"Religion" Origin

Middle English (originally in the sense 'life under monastic vows'): from Old French, or from Latin religio(n-) 'obligation, bond, reverence', perhaps based on Latin religare 'to bind'.

@Erock68la. An example of religion that doesn't glorify death might be Jainism.

Thanks Strega.  How do they feel about reincarnation?  I guess I would argue that reincarnation kinda glorifies death.  And is it true that Jain women must be reincarnated as men before they can obtain liberation?  Hardly seems fair. 

I do like their idea of non-violence toward any living thing.  But I do love a good cheeseburger so I guess that leaves me out.
