Respect is earned. How do you respect something that haven't earned your respect?
Everyone is saying "please respect my beliefs" (especially when the issue is political/religious beliefs) but how do you exactly do that when that persons beliefs goes against everything you believe? That phrase to me sounds more like "shut up, don't bother me" rather than asking respect.
How do you show respect without being indifferent, tolerant, and/or downright rude to other people's beliefs?
