Serenity thank you sweetie, you made me feel better. ~hugs~
KC, no you didn't make my day worse by any means. I had this nagging feeling that I needed to get on here and check things out, and I finally threw my son off and came on late last night. I was surprised to find all this going on, and not to have an email about it. But it was taken care of, and that's what's important.
The only thing I can say right now (haven't had my coffee yet so forgive me), is that people might seem insensitive to spiritual things because they reply with what they believe.
For instance you have a wider knowledge of different beliefs than most. So you would tend to see things in a different light and reply accordingly.
I haven't searched, nor do I do know much about other religions outside of Christianity. My family was Catholic when I was small, so I know some of that, but tend not to agree with a lot of their beliefs.
When I read something vague, I do tend to put into my own catagory, in how I see God.
Though I don't always reply with that, if it be a vague piece. I try to stay neutral, because I did however make that mistake once in a reply and it really upset someone. I will not forgot that.
But we relate to things that we've learned, and we see them in light of our own lives and views.
I don't agree with all other religions of course, but I truly believe others have the right to believe what they will. I don't have to read it, nor do I have to reply to it, but I respect that belief.
I have found one thing, not to mention have learned a lot of others beliefs, is that I beleive what I have to be the truth.
I know also that what others believe, they believe to have the truth. You cannot change the mind, nor the belief, and they believe with all the strength in them it's true, just as I do. I respect that!
I don't want anyone forcing their religion upon me telling me it's the only way, nor do I want to do the same to anyone else, because I understand they believe what they do firmly.
People (I assume) are just replying from how they view their belief. Now I am not aware of the replies you are speaking of, haven't seen them. So I could be totally wrong here.
Some may maliciously reply in stating that what you're writing is totally wrong, and you shouldn't 'believe' that way. That however is wrong, considering everyone has the right to their own belief.
(I'm going to quit rambling now and drink my coffee)
