1. So are people allowed to define religion for others, or not?

You claim that isn't appropriate, but you will post something like this:

(Islam) wasn’t a rigid, dogmatic system of rituals, dress codes and obligations, but a direct experience of Divine Compassion and Mercy. It wasn’t a religion of fear, but a tender, beautiful path toward Unconditional Love. Rather than a label or identity, it was a state of being in surrender to the natural flow of the Divine Reality, or Allah.


That person is defining Islam for others.

So figure it out, gil. Be consistent. Is defining religion for others OK, or is it not? The answer can't be "it's OK when it's something I like."
