What surprises me more is how many people are ignorant of their OWN religion. I live in the heart of the Bible belt and I have heard people quote things that you would not believe, and when ask to show me the quote in the Bible was looked at like an idiot and basically told that they had never read it.
If people dont know anything about their OWN religion what makes you think they would know anything about anothers?
But I disagree that the real reason is ignorance, although Ghod knows there're a bunch of ignorami here. I think that very often the case is that people have a need to put down other religions or philosophies in an (vain, I believe) attempt to make their own beliefs have more meaning or simply to feel better about themselves.
