Believe As You Want … Let Others Choose Also

We must, in all good consciousness, stop trying to force people to believe what we believe.
If one’s beliefs are not harming others, then live and let live.
And let us please stop lumping all people who supposedly share the same belief(s) together. I have met many mean, miserable Christians who only believe in Jesus to get into heaven but are onerous and stingy and then I have seen others truly walk the talk in various levels. In fact, I am currently staying with one during my job search.
I have heard Muhammed Ali before and others since talk about Islam and its core element of peace, but then there are the terrorist groups who use, as Christians have, excerpts taken out of context to justify the opposite of peace and love.
If you don’t agree with someone, just respect the fact he or she is a life and has the right, as do you, to believe as they choose.
And, it will serve us all well, if all of us were more compassionate with each other for the trials and tribulations we go through and especially for those who have been targets for no good reason other than ignorance, fear, and low “Respect Levels” for life … theirs or others … because as I have learned those who harm, in the end, are actually causing more harm for themselves in the end because they have to live with the consequences of their actions.
