    I am all for everyone having their own beliefs,

    values, and even dreams as long as it is not pushed on me if I don't have or have different beliefs than those of others.

    Be Who You Are, Leave Everyone Else Alone

    Peace. That's exactly what the world needs. Enjoy your religion, and be happy with who you are, what you believe, etc. But it is unacceptable to push your beliefs onto any other human being. We ALL have our own beliefs, thoughts and opinions, so you preaching to anyone else...

    Just Don't Try Anything With Me.

    I respect other's beliefs and values but become absolutely offended when I feel those values are trying to be pushed off onto me. I am already set in my ways, I have my own set of morals and beliefs.. I don't need or want yours.

    I'm done with the whole arguing thing.

    Okay, it's one thing to tell people they're wrong when you truly believe they're wrong. But it's another to become angry, argumentative, and combative about it. All that leads to is splits and fights and wars, and it seems no matter what people just don't learn from the past...

    I'm a temporal agnostic,

    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...

    What you believe may be different then what I

    do. But I respect that. What I really respect though is somebody that will stand up for what they believe in and fight for it. Even if I don't agree with what you are fighting for. That is when you will earn my true respect.

    You can learn a little from each one.

    I consider myself a Christian but I don't like when other people who call themselves Christians condemn other people who have different beliefs. It is actually very un- Christ like anyway.
