Diversity

It makes the world go 'round. I try to be respectful and open minded until people who are different than me try to push their beliefs on me. Then we're on for contensious debate.

We're dealing with that in another forum. Why is it when we start a new experience, people from opposing views come in and inject their beliefs? It is bewildering.

I agree, but it's unbelievable how many people see it as their duty to tell you how much better their belief system is better than yours. It makes me sick.

Wow Lilt. That has to be the new question of the ages! *sigh* is right...............

It is ignorance. <br />
But why does ignorance have to have such a loud voice?<br />
*sigh*

That's so hateful. I believe hatefulness like that is ignorance.<br />
Some people are afraid of what they don't know or understand. It's sad.

Just think how lovely the world would be if everyone held that point of view!

I agree. I like talking to people from different walks of life than myself - just as much as I enjoy like-minded people. I think we can learn alot from others with different experiences - everyone has something to offer.<br />
<br />
But I dont like to feel threatened or judged for my own beliefs and opinions - so if others cant be respectful while engaging in discussions - they best be prepared to drop it - I wont fight - I wont dignify prejudice or ignorance with responses.
