"If that's true, then go in peace and godspeed....."
Same to you. :)
"How do you vote? Do you pick candidates on their record and policies, or on their apparent character? And how do you judge their character?"
I do not vote because I have no faith in the system as so many others do, I also find myself turning my nose at them because of the "fake" feel I get from them. But that is how I feel.
"How "obvious" do you make your Belief known to others? (I note that you *are* posting on this forum, so you are unlikely to be a closet Believer) How much social pressure do you think you might put on others who differ from your beliefs? You can tell those who've you imposed upon -- not by their vocal retorts, but by their awkward silence."
Obvious...You mean like crosses and the like? I don't wear religious symbols of any kind. If people want to know my spiritual orientation they can ask, and I'll sheepishly give it to them. I don't do impositions; while I'm rather disgusted with most of Christianity it's not my place to force my belief on those who get some solace from it. Ironically many think they should with me and others -,-
"How is you personal space decorated? Any items with religious iconography, which again imposes your beliefs upon your visitors."
Nope. I like having a separate room for those things, as I don't like to plaster it everywhere. Of course, I've never felt ones personal house decorations to be imposing when visiting another's house.
"But I did want to point out that how we think we treat others, and how were are percieved as treating others are sometimes very different things, and we are often unaware of the latter."
That is very true. I wish people would take a step back more often.
