..... I hate that.


And why do you hate that? I never really understood that.

I doubt your friend is the sort you're worried about one day bombing an abortion clinic. It seems the arguments here are composed of stating that his beliefs, provide shelter for those with more extreme views than his, even though he doesn't share them. Which I think is a very weak argument, and perhaps not as authentic as those raising it imagine.

The bolded bit is my main gripe. He is willing to promote a belief (by the way he is a practicing Roman Catholic), not because its true, but because it feels nice. That sounds... I don't know... rather cowardly. I personally don't care about how it feels, I just care about whether or not it is true.

I would rather know the world around me then to be blind it. And I simply couldn't believe that he is fully willing to say something is true, when it doesn't matter to him whether it is or not.

RE: Unreasonsble
I have something to say in regard to the 'comfort' aspect of belief. I will add that portion when I'm off work.

Anyways, yes it's been a while, A2. We have much to talk about. Wink
