Is there any way to prevent religious debates from turning into a big fight?

People discuss lots of things, politics, sports, anything
But when they discuss religious opinions, most of the time, they get all angry and try to win even with fight.
why is that? why that can't be a normal subject?
and more important, How can we prevent this?


Closing Statement from Farokh Shahabi Nezhad

Tnx everyone for their replies. I enjoyed learning from different aspect for this problem.

I can only conclude this : Don't argue with someone unless they are open minded and ready to be changed and challenged.

  • Feb 14 2013: Personally I think that when people discuss politics, sports, everything else, they get as angry.

    I dont think the subject of God is unique in this failing of mankind.

    • Feb 17 2013: Tify,
      You are right as rain.
      People can get angry with a baleful glare.
      They certainly don't need subject matter.
