"I was recently told I was going to hell because I am not Christian. Not that response exactly, but I always get similar conversation following the discovery of my religious beliefs or lack thereof. I respect all religions despite my questions and unwillingness to follow. Each to their own is my own way of thinking. I think religious people should learn that not everyone is a believer and that should be okay – after all, it’s their choice and their reasoning. “You are going to hell” isn’t going to change their entire belief system, so being lectured about conversion is a waste of time and frankly irritating. I come from background where I have been exposed to 3 different religions, having practised one and researched the other two; I have decided organised religion is not for me. I don’t disrespect you by telling you what I think about your religion and I believe this respect should be mutual. Let me live the way I see fit. Please and thank you."
