Please respect my religion ,all I look for is love joy and peace . tks op
I heard that atheism will shortly have an actual church, and I protest once again, since the fact is that atheism has no need of such a thing.
General respect for others should always be given. I guess it depend on how considerate of a person you are.
About religion though: It's my personal opinion that religion does not warrant respect.
Consider the following. There are hundreds of different religions on this planet, and many more that are now considered dead religions. Each of these has many sub-religions. Every single person on this earth is 100% convinced their particular religion is correct. This means every single person holds every other religion to be false as there can be only one true faith. When you take a step back, and analyze this situation properly, you come to the realization that anyone who fervently clings to any unproven beliefs (including atheism and even scientific theories) are delusional.
Sorry if I've offended.
