    Link: Patton Oswalt On Respecting People`s Beliefs - What do you think, I-A-B? Basically he`s saying--I`m right, you`re wrong, shut the F up and get out of my way.

    As a litmus test to see if he really means what he says, somebody has to say something really bad about Islam, yet completely truthful and accurate, and see what he thinks.

    Sorry but that is stupid. You don`t have to agree with them, but you do have to respect them. That`s much different than his comment. You can say to yourself that a certain belief isn`t for you, maybe call it stupid (which really doesn`t nothing), and let the person have/practice that view as long as it doesn`t cause harm to others. THAT is respect, and that is what you should do. Unlike this turd, who apparently doesn`t deserve respect.

    There are quite a few beliefs I will not respect. Slavers, murderers, torturers, peder*sts, r*apists, and a fair batch more. I am not familiar with who or what Patton Oswalt is but quite agree with "No you don`t!" statement on respecting some beliefs.

    "you do have to respect them."

    I don`t HAVE to respect anyone. You EARN respect. If you think the earth is flat, or that the universe is 6,000 years old, or that the easter bunny hides aggs than I think you are a f.ucking moron. I don`t HAVE to respect your beliefs.

    Anyone has the right to believe they will solve the worlds energy problems with no more than a sugar beet, a rubber band, and 2 paint brushes. Does that mean others have some ethical obligation to respect that belief if someone truly believed it? Many would argue that it`d be unethical to allow someone to torture theirself by living with such an expectation.

    freddyferret-"You don`t have to agree with them",

    That is correct.

    freddyferret-"but you do have to respect them"

    No, no I do not. I am under no obligation to show deferential regard for, avoid violation or interference with, relate or reference to, appreciate, regard with honor, or show consideration for anyone elses beliefs. (the `particular aspect, feature or detail` definition didn`t fit into the sentance).

    If your belief is asanine, I`ll be more than happy to tell you, and if need be, show you.

    The reason people don`t want their beliefs challenged is because they are afraid they can`t stand up to scrutiny. Which is patently absurd, because the only way to be certain that your beliefs are actually true is to subject them to scrutiny.

    People are afraid of having their world view changed, but having your world view changed is probably the best thing you can do, because it will nearly always become more accurate.

    "You EARN respect."

    Absolutely. And to a certain extent you can`t offend someone. They have to let themselves be offended.

    It`s not offensive if you have not the least shred of respect for the other person. Like when madest flings his poo and then deludes himself into thinking that I give a dry fap about his opinion of me.

    Absolutely true.
    People have a right to any beliefs that don`t harm others. They don`t have a right to inflict them on me nor to demand my respect.

    Ah yes Smiley, nice bit of Christian Evangelising there. God is Love, etc. But my favourite quote from the bible is the oft-touted John 14:6, "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

    Which means, if you`re a Christian, you`re going to receive eternal life and bliss and happiness and Heaven. If you`re anything else, you`re going to live eternally in hell, in torment, with demons inserting anal-prolapsing inducing implements into your ass. For f*cking ever.

    Forgive me, but I find that an absolutely abhorrent ideal. God is Love, as long as it`s my God? All the Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Traditional Chinese Animists, Atheists, Zooastrarians, Shintoists, African tribal religions, whatever, are all going to suffer eternally in hell because they didn`t subscribe to my particular brand of candy?

    You can F*ck off. I agree with the sentiment expressed.

    As H. L. Mencken said, `We must respect the other fellow`s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.`

    Beliefs (religious or otherwise) are worthy of ridicule, if they are indeed ridiculous.

    Agreed.
    If your belief gives you the right to honor-kill a woman
    for the crime of having been raped then to hell with that!
    I`m not respecting it.

    davymid: I think you misinterpreted that verse and put some narrow restraints on it. If we love one another, lay our lives down for each other, help others, we`re doing what God wants. Try to hone that verse you used with these. Loving one another is the most important thing God wants us to do.

    oswalt is correct. The only thing we have to do is Not Deliberately stop them from practicing their beliefs. We definitely have the right to tell these people their beliefs are "stupid" and "silly"

    And there goes Davymid with his Christian vendetta.

    :/

    Respect must be earned? Ive been brought up to always respect my elders and teachers.So you walk around expecting people to impress you so that you may respect them,wow this thinking sure does change the world,Respect should be given out of love for on another but i guess thats too hard so dont right?just be sarcastic with one another and disrespect them if they think differently than you, push them down too your emotionally barbaric behavior so you can be at the same level.Why cant we lift each other up no matter what we choose too believe in and try to understand instead of ridicule?
