I think I got off track in my previous response so I deleted it. Because I agree with what you say-and I don’t actually have any religious zealot contact in my day-to-day personal life. And since I never post my religious/spiritual beliefs in detail or challenge anyone else about theirs, I don’t see the ugly end of this subject directed my way often.

But I do notice it is something people regularly get up in arms about and I guess I just don’t understand why someone can be so ugly to another person about a subject that LITERALLY teaches the opposite behavior as the desired behavior.

it’s just so sad to me.

i am going to read your response again tomorrow after some sleep and may have more to respond to. thank you for taking the time to elaborate so well on the subject. ❤


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
