RE: Respect for Religion
Hey, Science.

Fair enough.

1 - Well. One gives them respect. You give your mother respect (I would hope). Like that.

2 - One can loathe football and all that it stands for, they can be sickened by the violence, but if they consider football players and football fans complete idiots, then they aren't respecting them. I don't have to like another culture, I don't have to agree with it. Chances are I won't. Because the defining characteristic between their culture and mine is that we see things differently. Sometimes though, I hear about another culture's worldview and I find myself in awe of their radically different ideas. But I would never suggest that we eliminate all sports and play only hacky sack. The diversity is important. For example, baseball is boring as fuck. I'd rather have a doctor perform nut surgery on me by way of my anus. But some people love it (baseball, not the....). More power to em. I might rib em. I might tell them why I think hockey is better (and it is... when they play it... fuck...). But I respect their right to be different and think differently and to see the world differently.

3 - The reason I said what you seem to agree with is because the notion that religion offers nothing is puerile nonsense. I have a friend, a devout Evangelical. Everyone I know thinks that he's cracked out and they would never live that way. But in the same breath, they recognise that he is one of the kindest, funniest, most generous people they have ever known and that his faith, his complete and utter devotion to Christ and the Holy Bible, is an integral part of who he is. Religious organisations have their problems, hands down, already said that. I also said that I don't know how much, or if any of the wisdom bound up in those religions can be extricated from the organisation. But the outright denial of any value is just silly.


Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt
