When it comes to business and scam and default prevention, religious people have some "moral leverages" as an example:
- A Muslim may feel it to be alright to scam a non-believer, as that's what his religion states.
- A Christian have an imaginary friend that forgives anything (and by anything it means really anything, from scam to kill the creditors).
IDK much about other religions, but they may have also some "moral relief" systems.

So, should we add to account a "too religious" at risk assessment?

That Christian who has "an imaginary friend that forgives anything (and by anything it means really anything, from scam to kill the creditors)" that's not a Christian, but a scammer or psychopath without any moral.
I think being a honest business partner does nothing with religion. That's about the human qualities of that given person and about the accepted common business practices in their homeland.

I really do not know, but considering that the church is one of the largest and oldest business of the world (Vatican scandal a few weeks ago also proves) makes me to think that some religions are made to amass fortunes and others simply to impose a new world order.

Hello

I do not think it is a risk to business to accept religious people in your business dealings.

It is important to treat people as individuals with their own opinion. Yes it is true that their own religions shapes their world views, but if you keep an open mind you will clearly have more success. Just try treat others with respect and hopefully they will do the same for you.

You gotta tell me which religion expanded by "respecting others" to stand your theory.

Edit; to not mention respect is earn, not given, and a two way street.
That of respecting religions is a funny one, "you got to respect my religion... Btw, my religion says you are shit/devil/whatever".

Yes. Most people here feel Allah punish the thieves, they don't believe law system nor use it. Muslim people are weird.

If a person ignores facts around them and instead believes fairy tales, you have to question their overall sanity.

Personally, I wouldn't hire anyone religious.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

A company is truly blessed if they hire a religious person. Why? Religious people have laws from their religion that they need to follow to be in good standing with their religion. These laws say that they must work hard for their boss just like they would if they were working in some position in their religion.

Those people who say they would NOT hire a religious person, are often people who are jealous of how hard a religious person works. A religious person makes these non-religious, lazy folks look bad. So they say that they wouldn't hire them, just to cover their own lazy attitude.

Everybody makes mistakes at various times. Sometimes a religious person makes mistakes, just like a non-religious person. A non-religious person tries to shrug off his mistakes, but there isn't anywhere he can shrug them off to. So he builds up guilt inside himself for his mistakes (even though he doesn't know it), and the guilt slows him down on the job.

A religious person who makes mistakes can turn to his religion, and shrug off the guilt for his mistakes there. Why? Because almost all the religions have a method for relieving the person from his guilt for mistakes he makes. The result is that the religious person can work harder and better, because he doesn't have any guilt slowing him down.

You got my point BADecker, however it looks like you don't quite know what "risk assessment" is. Probably because Vod's comment about hiring people you think it was (just) about it.
But you're right, "Because almost all the religions have a method for relieving the person from his guilt for mistakes he makes." (...) "because he doesn't have any guilt slowing him down."

This, under risk assessment means HIGH RISK of default! Red flag! Because risk assessment means how likely or unlikely someone is to default on their contracts, including credit, contractor, logistics and so on. So, as I said early, it looks like religious folks tend to use their "morality relief" to not "have any guilt slowing them down" of default either on present or in future contracts.

A religious person can totally screw over their employer, then pray to their god for forgiveness and walk away with a clear conscious.

A non-religious person has to live with what they do, so they are more likely to do the right thing.

Except, it doesn't work like the above^^ in real life. Religious people faithfully try to do a better job. However, there are morally and ethically weak people both within and without the religious sector. And there are liars who say that they are religious when they are not.

When it comes to business and scam and default prevention, religious people have some "moral leverages" as an example:
- A Muslim may feel it to be alright to scam a non-believer, as that's what his religion states.
- A Christian have an imaginary friend that forgives anything (and by anything it means really anything, from scam to kill the creditors).
IDK much about other religions, but they may have also some "moral relief" systems.

So, should we add to account a "too religious" at risk assessment?

That Christian who has "an imaginary friend that forgives anything (and by anything it means really anything, from scam to kill the creditors)" that's not a Christian, but a scammer or psychopath without any moral.
I think being a honest business partner does nothing with religion. That's about the human qualities of that given person and about the accepted common business practices in their homeland.




This is the dumbest analogy i have ever heard, scammers are scammers they dont have any moral at all. why do u mix religion with business.
that being said religion is the biggest business in the world

I thought it was a fair analogy... religion is the biggest scam in the world...

Religious people tend to be gullible, easily scammed, and unscrupulous scammers prey on sheeple... including preachers, who take 10% of your money while you listen to their fairy tale... and not only the preachers, there are other wolves in sheeple clothing in churches...

The Bible is the original source of calling people sheep.

And the Bible says that some preachers are wolves hungry for sheep.

So it looks like everyone on this thread agrees with the Bible, and should therefore be denied employment.

When it comes to business and scam and default prevention, religious people have some "moral leverages" as an example:
- A Muslim may feel it to be alright to scam a non-believer, as that's what his religion states.

Where does it state that? This is a lie!

The Bible is the original source of calling people sheep.

And the Bible says that some preachers are wolves hungry for sheep.

So it looks like everyone on this thread agrees with the Bible, and should therefore be denied employment.

This is a good idea. Then we Bible people will have to go into business and employ the non-Bible people. It will give us the opportunity to preach to them and make them into Bible people. Of course, then they will have to quit and go into business just like us.

After a while, all people will become Bible people, because they will see how much money the Bible business people are making. When this happens, there will be no big business any longer. There won't be any government, either, because there won't be any government employees. We will have a new generation in freedom.

Trouble with this scenario is, some people are too lazy to make their business work, and the cycle will start all over again. I think I should start a "club" and name it "Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship," a place for Bible Business people to get direction on how to make and get the best out of their business.  Cheesy

I don't think it's a good idea to hire religious people if you have others to choose from
They might set fire to the place because a chair is possessed or something like that.
Also if you have a deadline and there is some special days in between they are more likely to take time off to do religious stuff instead of caring about the deadline even if they are behind in their work.

When it comes to business and scam and default prevention, religious people have some "moral leverages" as an example:
- A Muslim may feel it to be alright to scam a non-believer, as that's what his religion states.
- A Christian have an imaginary friend that forgives anything (and by anything it means really anything, from scam to kill the creditors).
IDK much about other religions, but they may have also some "moral relief" systems.

So, should we add to account a "too religious" at risk assessment?

not just for business stuff but for all stuff , religion is so dangerous..
