    It's getting weirder

    and harder to live my life in a religious family when I'm not religious...I accept other people's beliefs but I know my family would disapprove of mine.

    Of all the "-isms" I think ageism is the least

    acknowledged and it's too accepted. I've had to fight for the right to even speak my opinion in regards to situations that effect me primarily only to be hushed or labeled disrespectful by family (mostly), their friends, adult student peers, and strangers! Now I know my lack...

    Actually I Don’t Think We’re That Different

    Okay, maybe the ways to communicate with God (or the Higher Power, the divine, or whatever you like to call It) are different, there are people who go to church, there are also people who go to mosque, and there are people who go to temple, etc. But those differences are only in...

    I respect all beliefs out there.

    Who cares if someone believes in god and another doesn't. Let them be happy with what the believe in. Let them enjoy life they way they want. Don't shove your beliefs down their throat. It's gross.

    I believe you should be a good person in life.

    .. And being a good person involves not judging others for not being like you.

    Be Who You Are, Leave Everyone Else Alone

    Even if it isn't ideal to what I believe I will

    respect it. In fact, I may also be fascinated in learning about it because learning helps me relate or even understand you better as a person or a culture :)

    Whether someone believes in god or not. I believe that there is no use in fighting people because of their beliefs. When I come to think of it, humanity doesn't know much as a whole. We are still new to things. There could be a god, alone or in an army. Or there could be no...

    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.
