    Generally where there is a difference in belief, procedure, method etc one is held as being right, more right or superior to the others.

    please remember I am not saying absolute

    With this in mind one would hope that whatever religious views a person takes they believe to be right or superior to others. If someone thought my belief was superior but stuck with their own or if I thought their belief was superior but stuck with my own that would just seem silly. Of course I think my beliefs are right, yes I see some error (maybe a lot) in the statement of others. Yet again I dont see what it particularly has to do with my view and answers to OP.

    I answer things as I have the time, their are other threads I personally find much more enjoyable, entertaining and informative. But - thats my view. I am not out to have a religious discussion and put everyone else down or tell them they are wrong. If someone wants to know why my views differ or how they differ I am more than happy to do this via PM.

    If someone PM's me and we have such a discussion it is then for them to decide if there is any value or substance in that which I may say. Im not going to turn around and abuse them or call them stupid if they disagree.

    As for voting, it makes no difference to me if or when someone does or does not vote or what they do or do not vote for. It is none of my business.

    personally I find this repeated request to Private Message really odd.

    if you don't want to take a thread off course - do a spin off.

    this is a public forum, public discussion is productive.

    I actually don't believe that having faith in your religion or beliefs equates to believing you are absolutely right and others aren't really 'Christian.' I have several incredibly religious friends and family that have an amazing faith (and are practicing) and would be very surprised to learn that they felt their way was the only way or was superior.

    The Swedenborgian faith actually believes that all religions are living in God's way and that as long as you are genuinely trying to be a good person you are getting it right.

    The problem with saying you're 'right' means that by definition someone else has to be 'wrong'. It's a bit more complicated than that.

    Ever heard of the saying 'not better, not worse, just different'? It's a matter of tolerance and respect.

    That may be applicable for some issues of social conscience but not for everything. Sometimes other people do really sucky stuff and to refer to those actions as 'different' would be misleading... Not doing the issue justice.

    Of course this doesn't apply to every issue, but it was a great comment for the topic at hand!
