I agree that someone's spiritual choice should not reflect upon friendship. But friendship depends on respect of and from both friends. If there isn't that, there isn't any friendship.<quoted text>
I already responded to this to Annie. I had no reference to anyone not having a purpose in this world. I am not the Creator or the Judge. Everyone has a purpose. I was responding to the claim that the blanket was not a Godsend. That's all. I don't judge others lives or how they may or may not fulfill it.
As far as Atheists or Agnostics, I have just as many close friends that are not believers. Someone's spiritual choice is theirs and theirs only and does not reflect upon a friendship in my eyes.
All too often people who claim to want friendship want it on their terms regardless of the other person's beliefs or feelings. Just look at the theists who come here claiming that, and claiming what they are doing is out of love when nothing could be further from the truth. I would just as soon disembowel myself with a claw hammer as to be friends with them as at least that would be a quick escape. There is no escape from people like waassuupp, viking, our long-time troll, and others who have come here merely to preach, condemn, and finally judge to hell proving only that they are only doing it out of ego or possibly just to annoy others and drive them away from any chance of seeing any truth in their words at all.
