2 thoughts on “Disrespect of Beliefs”

  1. I don’t have the time to watch the video (very busy at the moment) but I, for one, have always found the phrase “respect someone’s beliefs” quite odd in a religious discussion. Basically a religious belief is something believed without proof (or even hope of proof). Why should such a thing be respected? Other things believed in without proof (Bigfoot, UFOs, little green men, Texas liberals) often draw ridicule.

    This seems to be a self-imposed taboo, namely “If you don’t criticize my religious beliefs, then I won’t criticize yours.”

    1. Not that we ask for such deference; if you think you can challenge my beliefs, do. It’s like an immune system. (That said, favourite the YouTube video to watch later. It is good.)
