I Respect Different Beliefs and Values

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,286 People

    I was raised a Roman Catholic,

    but I am hardly practising this now! I am lapsed, and I don't have an interest now in the mysteries of the church. But, I don't mind talking with people who are friendly even to discuss matters constructively.

    We live in a world of diversity with many

    different cultures and histories! So you can’t criticise and got no right to disrespect different beliefs and values if you haven’t experienced it! It’s no good believing the media as we all know how over exaggerated it is and over generalise it!I am open...

    I believe you should be a good person in life.

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

    Within reason. There are some things I just can

    NOT understand. Like most Christians, passing judgement and just generally being dicks. Racism. Child abuse. Extremists. Pessimism. I think that one is my pet peeve; pessimism. What good has being so negative ever brought you?? But yea. Moderation is key. Never throw...

    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 :)

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
