I have a question that requires answers from multiple religions. Where do I ask it? There should be a place for inter-religious dialogue. BTW I have read this: Why not have religion.stackexchange.com instead of Christianity/Judaism/Biblical Hermeneutics?

    Well, if you read that question, what did you think about it? How does it relate? Just dropping a related link in your question doesn't give much context. Commented Jan 24, 2016 at 4:04
  • Best bet would be philosophy stackexchange. Commented Jan 24, 2016 at 4:53
  • @NathanTuggy, my question is where do I ask it? Dropping the link implies that there is possibly no explicit answer. Commented Jan 24, 2016 at 8:11

You can't ask a question about all religions in one place, and the answers in the question you linked explain why such a site isn't practical. You can, however, tailor your question for each community whose input you want, and ask it there. (Don't just cross-post the same question; that tends to produce poor quality and is discouraged.)

On each site ask your question from the perspective of that religion. You'll then have to synthesize the results, same as for any project that requires answers from multiple communities (or multiple questions in the same community).

  • Correct me if I am wrong ... On each site ask your question from the perspective of that religion would practically (at least in some cases) mean overriding the Don't just cross-post the same question. Commented Jan 24, 2016 at 8:14

    It wouldn't be the same question, it would be a series of similar questions: "Does Shia Islam teach A?" "Does the Catholic Church teach A?" and so on. Commented Jan 24, 2016 at 8:53
  • Or "what does (group) teach about X?" or "according to (group) how do you (achieve some outcome, e.g. gain salvation)?". (Beware of "too broad", of course.) Commented Jan 24, 2016 at 18:29

If a question has several "right" answers, it's probably not a good fit to the Stack Exchange model generally.

If, however, what you're after is a philosophical insight into, say, the similarities and/or differences between particular religions on a particular issue, then Philosophy might be the place.

Here's what you can ask about there, and what you can't
