I would never force my beliefs onto others. It is nice to have different faiths and religions around the world. i say if you want to believe in a deity then that is great as it gives you alot of faith inside of yourself and gives you hope wink2.gif

Slightly true?

Well, its not exactly true... rolleyes.gif but sometimes I think that I understand the ways of the jedi MUCH more than I understand Christianity.

Here, i'll teach you one right now-if any cop and/or stormtrooper wants to take a look at your droids/drugs/dead hooker in the back seat, wave you hand in front of their face and say"These are not the (insert object here) you're looking for", and they'll move on.  Or shoot you.  I can't remember which grin2.gif

I usually don't talk about my religion to others unless asked. It's private for me and most (usually christians) either don't understand or try to ridicule me for my beliefs. It is not for me to push my beliefs on another person. People will find their own path if they choose to seek it and it probably will not be my path.

If they come to me with sincerity and a honest desire to learn I will tell them about my beliefs. I reinforce to them that their path may be very different from mine and I am just one small part to their discovery.

I am a Jedi too.  We kick ass!

Anyways, during my exsistance on Earth I we thrown into the Catholic school system, we learn about the religion and whatnot, getting things forced down our throats by the teachers.  Only until my final year did we learn about other religions, which was a lot more fun than the same thing for 11 years prior.  Anyways, long story short, I don't force my beliefs down others throats, but if they want to know what I think I will tell.

Why is there enough religion to incite war, but not enough religion to instill tolerance?
Don't analyze my beliefs.  And I won't pick out the flaws in yours.

Star wars is not as far off as one would think.  It is kind of like Witchcraft.

i don't go around advertising my religion to people, but i don't hide it away, either. if i'm asked, i'll gladly tell, but i am totally against trying to shove ideas down people's throats. i know i would hate for someone to do that to me, and you know, do unto others... happy.gif
