Course. Some people have a misconception about me. My enemy isn't religion, it's ignorance and indoctrination.
If all you've done is grow up and were brainwashed into believing something, be it Christianity, Atheism, whatever, I will not respect your belief.
But, if you've truly grappled with your belief, questioned it, fought with it and entertained the notion that it COULD be wrong, if you've really fought with it to see if it TRULY fit you, only THEN will I respect your belief.
People who just mindlessly parrot what someone told them years ago when they were a child are pathetic to me.
I doubly respect someone who not only questions their belief, but actually went around to study other beliefs before making their choice. It doesn't matter what belief you chose, even one COMPLETELY opposite of mine, I will respect it.
And trust me, I will KNOW if you are parroting, I've been doing this for a while.2
