The offense is not through "I don't believe", the offense is coming from rudely mocking those who do believe.
There is a difference between stating an opinion and why you have that opinion, and openly mocking and degrading others for having a different opinion and degrading something they do believe.
I hold no offense to people who don't believe in it.
I held an enormous amount of offense to the "ommmm" comment for nothing other than:
A.) It was extremely rude
B.) It was USED to be extremely rude
C.) It has nothing to do with the topic, but was used to make fun of people.
The funny side (to me) is that animal communicators and Buddhist Monks don't have much in common, so it goes to show just how uneducated people are in their attempts at being rude and obnoxious towards the practice. The "AUM" chant is for meditation and prayer.
Learn before you wanna mock. It won't make you anymore appropriate, but at least you won't look ridiculous for putting two totally unrelatable things together in an attempt to be inappropriate.
I learned "respect" in kindergarten.
You believe it or you don't. No offense on either side. I will take offense if you do offensive things.
