The world would be a better place if everyone let other people alone with their beliefs -- except when those beliefs lead them to injure others. There was a study done awhile back that showed people who espouse and promote right-wing religions tend to have a great need for structure in their own lives. This means they don't feel safe if everyone else isn't saying what they want to hear. This makes them belligerent.

My grandfather lived by the motto of "live and let live". I think you and he had a lot in common. But, the one thing that he did that you don't is that he never argued with anyone. When a person said something that he considered outrageous, he wouldn't reply. He'd nod sagely and just let them carry on. He also used to say "you can't change anyone but yourself". He had his beliefs and he lived by them. But he didn't broadcast them. Just lived quietly by his own values. He was my hero and I try to live by his standards. It makes for much less stress. Good luck.

I am a non practicing agnostic. It seems that there will always be people who think they know better than you do what you want and others will threaten you till you believe.
