Comment: That is your personal belief - and my own

That is your personal belief - and my own

That is your personal belief - and my own... but others 'shouldn't' have to test their faith any more than they wish.

Faith is a pretty strong word and implies an almost unquestioned belief in something... even when presented evidence to the contrary. Faith isn't something to be 'adapted.' - especially religious Faith.

So - do you think I should try to convince my mother that Heaven is a silly idea so that when she dies, she won't be disappointed to not be there? I don't see how that would benefit me or her.

Is the libertarian position that 'she is free to believe, and I am free to attempt to alter her belief'? It might be... But I guess I go more for the 'do unto others' libertarian philosophy - I don't want others trying to alter my religious beliefs. I've always seen Ron Paul as that kind of libertarian.
