Tolerance! The only way I believe that we can change anything is to encourage education. Education will open up the minds of young people so that they may decide on their own that religion is not the way. I do not believe that we will change everyone’s opinion on religion. I believe I have the right as an American to have the faith or non faith that I want and I don’t think forcing someone to believe what I do is ok so we must find a way to coexist. I feel as long as someone’s rights don’t infringe on my rights or harm me I’m ok with that. I was told by another member that if I am tolerant of people who believe I’m contributing to the problem. Well isn’t that what Christians believe that if they sell gays a cake they are condoning it. That is what most of us here dislike about religion so why would I act in the same way. People of religion vary vastly. If they treat me with respect I will treat them with respect. If they overstep I will politely explain that I am non religious but I’m not going to persecute people for not thinking what I think. Most of us have family who believe who have raised us and loved us and are good people. So I am for tolerance of other humans. What are your thoughts?
