I thought for a moment and said...right now there is a mother and her son sitting at the kitchen table having this same discussion. But they are of different religious beliefs than you. What makes you right and her wrong?
She didn't really have an answer to me.

Since then it's one less thing I need to try and wrap my head around as to me there has been no hard proof of anything. I live my life believing in things that have been proven and are fact. Like C6 says...see you in hell.

Then again, I couldn't care what anyone's beliefs are as long as they don't preach it to me or others.
And yet, there are those who would call you an asshole for what you just said... or accuse you of trying to get them to stop believing.

Yeah well that's their issue not mine.
I don't judge others by their beliefs, colour or political views. If I did I'd be the kind of person I don't like very much.

Judging is bad. Knowing is good.

Not saying you are by any means.
I mean judging someone by saying things like:

they have tattoos...she/he is a whore or an idiot.
that guy's fat so he must eat a lot.
that guy's an atheist he is not a good person.
that guy's a liberal/democrat/republican he's an asshole.
that guy's black, he must be a criminal.

You can't judge a book by it's cover. At least read the introduction before you decide one way or another.

I get tired of people twisting the "judge not less thou be judged" verse.

Thus my previous comment about those who play fast and lose with the word "judge".

FYI I'm not saying you are doing that at all.

And I would like to point out there are plenty of non-believers here I get along with. So being a believer is not a prerequisite for me to like or "hang out" with anyone. Many non-believers here are respectful of the believers and vice versa.

It's the "religion is crap", "loony bible thumpers" etc comments that get in my craw.
I understand what you are saying. I'll say it again like I have many times on this forum. If you are a decent person I couldn't care less about race, colour, religion, or political beliefs.
