This morning I was on my way to work and traffic, as is usual, was slowing rather suddenly in front if me. The gentleman in front of me switched on his blinker and applied his brakes. In front of him another person turned first but rather than turning himself, the fellow ahead of me switched off his blinker and kept going. It’s little moments like this that give me faith in humanity. It isn’t a law or a requirement, but it sure made my driving experience this morning easier. Thank you sir.
Let me, if you will, rant for a second. I joined Reddit a couple of years ago to see what all the hype amongst my friends was all about. At the time I didn’t think it was for me, so I left and went on about my life. Reddit didn’t go away. It grew in popularity between my friends. About six months ago I went back.
Now the good thing about Reddit is that if you’re like me and you forget sign ins and passwords you can always make a new account because Reddit doesn’t require an email address. So I signed up again, downloaded a pretty good iPhone app and got to work perusing the many subreddits.
I guess the way Reddit works for a new user is that user’s given a set of subreddits that I believe are the popular ones amongst the community. At the time of my signing back up I noticed r/atheism in my list. I didn’t notice it at first and started adding my interests to the list, but with it being a popular subreddit, there were always posts in my Front Page. After inadvertently clicking several posts, I figured how to unsubscribe and did so. But not without being hurt.
I was raised by devout Christian parents, and while I don’t ascribe to or follow certain things, I do believe there is a God. There is no judgement from me or forcing a set of beliefs onto another person. If I know a person is of a certain belief or none at all, I leave them be. That is their decision, not mine; it’s also not my place to decided whether or not they’re right or wrong.
I am courteous in this respect and I would hope that others were in their’s as well. However this community, as well as some other places on the Internet, is so very hateful. They throw their lack of belief in people’s faces and criticize any who believe in anything else at all. It’s disrespectful and ignorant on their part. Like I said, I don’t care what you may or not believe in and hurtfully bashing me with it is uncalled for.
You’re a human and I’m a human and that’s all that matters. We can get along regardless of our beliefs and should be able to without them coming up in conversation. All I am asking for is a little bit of courteousness.
