I Respect Different Beliefs and Values

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,394 People

    A friend of mine told me

    that the other day she spent time with her "friends with benefits"/ "booty call". I'm not entirely sure how I feel about that concept. The thing is that I'm old fashioned and didn't know the real meaning of it til I started university. My parents never taught me about that...

    I will always respect different beliefs

    and values but within reason. There is no way I will ever accept Sharia Law, it is not only insane and archaic. It is incompatible with freedom or civilization.

    Because if I would like to be respected

    for my beliefs I would assume others would like that in return. We don't know for certain the meaning of life of how we all happened but one thing is for certain, we are all in this together! So we should all respect each other. If there should be a 'religion' or a belief that...

    Yes, of course I respect different Beliefs &

    Values. Everyone is different & everyone has her/his own beliefs & values, you may or may not agree with them & that's perfectly natural, but you still have to respect them for what they believe & value.

    I just realized I spend a lot of time arguing

    with people who are not worth the argument. It causes unnecessary stress, and it wastes my time. From now on i'm picking and choosing my battles wisely. If reasoning with said person isn't working, if they're failing to realize my side of things, their is no point in continuing...

    Within reason. There are some things I just can

    Close your eyes , still endure .

    When angry , if you yelled , and the end . It is close to prayer . Hate is not rough to the work of people , judgment is God's area . - Told me so it was brothers of Arab ./ From the slain japanese journallist Kenji Goto who was killed by terrorists recently =(

    I have my own beliefs

    and values, and I find it fine for others have their own, whether they may be different or not. I don't care to be right; I just do what I feel is right and go with it.

    No one is right and no one is wrong.

    Most of us live in democracy and so keep an open eye on everything around you. Not just scholars, but primitive life can hold a wealth of skill that we can learn from!

    and my boyfriend is a neopagan. (Note: there seems to be this misconception that "pagan" means "devil worship". In fact, pagans don't even believe in the devil. They are overall pretty peaceful, mostly unified by the belief that nature is sacred and polytheism.) Anyways. his...

    for a theological debate, but it's linked with a theme I've been talking about all day, really; to do with something I'm currently going through. I think people can become very heated on the topic of beliefs, whether they follow a formal belief system or not, because it seems...

    We all argue about our beliefs.

    Some believe on a God, a deity, some do not. For me, it ia very much possible that an intelligent designer, someone or even something even superior than our race might have been the cause of what we are humans today. Only we do not know what or who, again some of us claim that...
