Respecting the beliefs of others…

I know this is a rant and sore spot with me. Every chance I get I try to keep posting something about this very subject. Each respective religion from Pagan to Christian to Jew to Muslim and so on, have beliefs that are similar. IE Love and help others. It is when they became organized and people started trying to interpret those beliefs that someone got the bright idea to CONVERT others. Soon it became a knock down drag out fight to see which belief was the TRUE one. They seemed to forget that we have a choice in the matter. You won’t “GO TO HELL” if you don’t convert. That is the popular mantra of the Christians, and if truth be told Christ NEVER forced anyone to follow him. Seems that now the Pagans are picking up on that as well. It use to be you were called to a particular single or group of Deities, now if you don’t believe the was a group or the majority of Pagans believe, you are no more than a pretender or “wannabe.” It is sad that people who think know better than those whose free will they are messing with.
