But activism is merely nothing more than people fighting for a political cause. It is a term to describe political action, not beliefs. There can be religions using activism, philosophies using activism, and any other type of group or persons using activism. But activism itself is never a religion, it is merely a political term.
Asking if activism is a religion would be the same as asking if debate is a religion. It is a nonsensical question; they are concepts in and of themselves, just like religion is. Activists who are fighting on behalf of religion are just that: religious activists. It is not the concept of activism that is ever the religion, but the religion itself.
Agreed, but even then you point out that activism can have the appearence of religion. It is definitely a good topic to bring up and help clear things up.
Activism is NOt religion.
Some types of activism that approach moral grounds can LOOK like it is religious, but is still not religious.
Activism is a verb modifier, nothing more.
