Religion vs God

It is interesting to note how different people interpret the same text differently... the same goes with ones life and actions too. Take for example the statement of the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat: 'Hinduism is not a religion, it is a way of life...'

In his message he goes on to say that since Hinduism is a way of life, no one should abuse another faith. Well, that's truly noble of him (that too given this being his maiden message as the RSS supremo). But I hope all involved understand that if hinduism is not a religion, then none (not even Advani and his brigade) have any moral ground in stating anything about conversion (for now forget about the meaning and debate involved around it). For if we truly understand the meaning of that truth, then one may follow whichever religion he or she wants and yet be a hindu! So if at all any of our Hindu fanatics have a problem, then that should be a moral issue - that of one not living his or her life according to morals and values, certainly not about beliefs and faith!

But why is it that religion is always a point of discussion and not God...?
