In response to your comment on my previous post [which I have since deleted]:
While I appreciate and LOVE that we live in a time and place where we have:
- The right to free speech- to have our own opinions and share them openly
- Freedom of Religion- the ability and right to worship how, where and what we may, even if that may be nothing at all
I accept that you may feel differently than I do about God, religion, and probably many other things.
But these are my beliefs and the things that I personally know to be true.
You have the right to share how you feel, the right to worship or to not;
but that right to speak and worship that we equally share
does not under any circumstance
give you the right to belittle me and my beliefs.
I will not attack you for our differing beliefs.
I will respect your decision to believe and worship in anything, and in nothing.
Please do the same for me and everyone else.
I am so very grateful for this 1st amendment to the United States Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
