There are two kinds of religion, exoteric and esoteric. Exoteric religions are where the rules are imposed from above and you sign your freedom away and stop thinking. Esoteric religions are where you discover your own spiritual path, sometimes in the company of others. Followers of esoteric religions don't believe that we have found a one-size-fits-all solution, so we don't feel the need to impose our views on others.
