Bebe, while I appreciate your faith and earnestness, I don’t share your feelings towards a God or religion. But, I have many friends who are Christians, Muslim, and other faiths and I have learned to never respond to kind advice with a sneer. I don’t consider myself in the same group as atheists because I don’t agree with their smug and sarcastic assurance that they are better than someone who has faith in something.
Thank you for your words. Just because we don’t share the same philosophy, doesn’t mean we can’t be friendly and amiable.
