Sorry, but disrespecting one’s God is not equivalent to disrespecting the one holding a belief. Respect is something that is earned; and while I will respect a person and his/her right to believe what they wish, I ultimately do not respect any faith based position because faith is inherently irrational. To be so caught up in a belief to the point that it acts as a part of you is a very imbalanced perspective and ultimately dangerous and destructive.
just because one questions your faith does not mean that he is being insensitive or intolerant or disrespectful.
Two observations I’ve had:
1. To be offended simply because of someone questioning your faith or even disrespecting your faith speaks VOLUMES about the nature of your belief. While one may consciously think they’re believing in a God, it seems to me that at a subconscious level, “God” is simply some sort of “super-ego” component of the believer, which explains why people react the way they do whenever someone speaks against faith. In essence, the belief is a part of them… because the belief is them at a very fundamental level. There are scans of the brain activity of believers while thinking of God. Not surprisingly, the same region that holds the concept of self lit up.
2. The only way religious faith can survive is to be held on a pedestal. without that elite status, even the most devout believers would have a hard time not constantly questioning the validity of their faith.
