CB, I was asking you if it's a "leftist" idea that truths are better than lies. Is it or not?
As for religion not requiring justification, I would say first that it's odd because pretty much all religious people I've ever known of do justify their religious beliefs as being morally superior to anything remotely equivalent. I don't know any christian or muslim, for example, who says "The other guy's religion is as good as mine". It's fundamental to their beliefs that THEY have the "right" religion, and that there will be consequences for those who don't believe as they do.
Since religions usually claim to be true, they cannot be immune to analysis and criticism of their truth claims. Especially since they are usually trying to do things like insert their beliefs into public schools. If they're going to do that, then their claims are fair game.
Now, it would be different if you held a private belief such as "unicorns are real" and wouldn't require any justification, as long as it was private.
