and honestly kevinshorses, I thought at first you were one of those little boys in your picture.Why say those things? I'm not saying anything like that about you.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

You wrote it. I didn't write it. Are you saying that words carefully edited and taken out of context can be untrue. Surely NOT.

yeah, read it again. You turned that into me calling myself that and I didn't.

I'm just doing this so this topic will hopefully get closed so I don't have to feel bad about my beliefs.

and you don't see jehovah's witnesses trying to understand what is going through a jew's head now do you?

Alli, Life lesson #253 - Do not say something about yourself that is negative if you can not handle those around you agreeing with you.

I know, it sounds simple but sometimes it is hard. If you say, 'gosh I look fat in this dress' you can not be hurt when one of your friends says 'you are right'.

I honestly do not think anyone wants you to feel badly about your beliefs. They just want you to base your beliefs on facts. Real life facts. If you are willing to still believe what you believe (slaughter being bad) after you have real life facts then fine.
Another point is - just because you believe something does not mean it is fair to insist the world change to be how you want it to be.
It is fine that you do not want to eat meat. But the rest of us like meat. Eating meat requires slaughter. As long as slaughter is done as humanely as possible why look down your nose and force your beliefs on the rest of us? We do not require you to eat meat you should try to make it so we can not.

Yes it's called being an adult human in the real world.

So it runs in the family.

Is this where you get your closed mindedness from?

Your way or the highway?


I have some very good friends who are very knowledgeable about religions and who are very strong believers in their religion. None insist the others do not exist.

I hate what that religion has done to our family.It has literally tore it apart.I have no part in that. I am very open minded. Like I said before, everything you all have said I've read before and I've tried to understand it, but I can't.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
