I Say to America

December 19, 2007
By Jesse Cochran, Milford, CT

I say to America's people that they can think whatever they want about other people's opinions. However, do not say anything to that person out loud, or else there will be chaos. For example, I'm Christian, and it's okay to not like God. But I do not want people insulting my religion. Same for people against other religions, races, or personalities.

I don't think anyone actually dislikes God. people might believe he's real, or they might not, but no one dislikes him.

I completely agree and thank you for allowing others to think what they will.   At the same time, however, I think to further refine my own belief and better understand others it's great to have conversations about things like religion. I am not religious, but many of my friends are and through our conversations about the topic they've told me it helped them solidify their faith further. I believe that opinions are meant to be challenged, and thus respectful conversation is always helpful. And frankly I find it a little–lot–closed-minded to not listen to what others believe, either out of fear it could change what you believe, or otherwise.

I do not think it is all right to dislike God. I believe all His children should love and adore Him, and that way we can all be happy in Heaven together. However, I understand your point that people shouldn't shove their beliefs in other people's faces. When asked about my faith, I answer, and I do attempt to sound convincing. But I try not to be too forceful - that's not the way to go.
