I wouldn't have any idea on how "closely" anyone's faith mirrors my own,<quoted text>
Like many others, you seem to gauge people's "decency, compassion, ethics" based on how closely their practiced faith mirrors your own. And if someone professes no faith in a deity they are filled with inhumane-ness, abhorrence and depravity?
How insightful, special and droll of you.
I figure that kind of thing is none of my business. I am not "them" and they are not "me".
So none of your judgement of me, even makes any sense to me.
Why are you trying to twist my words, when I already simply and plainly stated my belief, which included beliefs and lack thereof.
I refuse to believe in any "diety or attached beliefs or NON beliefs", be it a vapor of gases, the smallest scientific particle known, a worm, a group, a building, or anything, tangible or intangible, that REFUSES to acknowledge the RIGHTS of ALL people to live and let live PEACEFULLY, and to believe in what they so choose to, so long is it is NOT offending, insulting, critisizing, harming or hurting others in any way shape, fashion or form.
Because such belief (or LACK of belief) that Refuses to acknowledge the RIGHTS of these basic humane components, is NOT worthy, and knows NOT the ways of TRUE PEACE.
That is MY opinion.
