A simple "thank you" would have sufficed. Drinking Beverage

What? No. "Alright" is not a word.

This is where you have me stop. Think about this. No questions asked? That is a very slippery slope. This is what starts hate, delusions, genocides and brainwashing. Question everything. You should know that this is a basic reason why people here have the non-beliefs or beliefs that they do. Because they are tired of a world who doesn't question and puts them in danger. A more perfect world would be where everything is questioned.

Maybe people don't accept you with your beliefs because they wish you to have a better, richer life without your beliefs. And, consequently, the world. Smile It can feel like it's just you, personally, thats being persecuted because you have come to believe your beliefs 'are' you. (The whole predestined by God thing), but they're separate.

I think it's important to know that many people here, I'm including myself, respect and accept you despite your beliefs- but not including them. That line can get blurred, I suppose.

Emotions aren't weak, they're emotions. Emotions are there to interpret your world and you have to figure out what your world is telling you. Think of it as a sense, as in your 5 main senses.

When have I ever said one mean thing to you?

I don't think you've ever said just one mean thing. It's usually lots of mean things. Weeping

Nothing but evil propaganda. It's all lies!

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

I love that these two grammar geeks are having a grammar war, with an English teacher stepping in. What a good day!

Yeah, I know.

Questioning is good, I get this.

What I was mostly trying to convey is that I would love a world where acceptance is supreme and everyone accepts everyone no matter what they believe. Again, impractical and impossible on many different levels. Partly because of the person/belief thing.

But, that was just a passing thought as I typed. Didn't mean for it to be analyzed.
