None of us have to be disagreeable to disagree. That's a choice.
other people's thoughts and comments should be worth the "valuing"......Common courtesy would be to keep your delusions to yourself!

In other words, you've reserved to yourself the "right" to judge the values of others and the "right" to disrespect them when they don't measure up?
Your intent is to belittle and heap scorn on those who don't rise to your personal level of "enlightenment?" Your own hubris is the standard by which all others are measured?

Gee...I wonder where THAT comes from?

Does anyone else get frustrated by this fact?

If you don't want your ideas to be questioned and rediculed (in the case of religion and a god), then either 'smart up' and don't come up with fairytales as your truths and your reality, or keep it to yourself, and don't go around saying "the good lord this....and the good lord that..."

Ticks me off i tell ya!
Everyone has the right to think as they wish. What they do not have the right to do is to impose their thinking on others. That's the problem with "society".

Seems similar to how some Christians get their panties in a bunch when people wish them Happy Holidays instead of Merry Xmas.
