I hate to say it, but I don’t like the holiday season. Oh, it is not an anti-religious theme dislike. I’m fine with religion. I think some people need to have religion in their lives. I think some people need to grow up and leave people who need religion alone. I am always amazed when I come across someone who has complete disdain for anyone who has religious beliefs. Those people will always tell me how stupid the other people are. They then want to know why they follow certain traditions (Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Wicca, or whatever). They say to me, “Those people are so stupid. I cannot believe they believe that.” Okay, fine, I cannot believe your upset and so much so that you want to make a career out of changing people to your believes.
Then, of course, comes the denial that they don’t have a belief because if they have a belief then someone might suggest the existence of a religion. Holy crap in a tea cup. Will it never cease?
Here’s my solution: Let’s allow each other to simply live our lives without telling each other how stupid the other is.
Oh, by the way, your choice of toothpaste? give me a break. Mine is much better.
