Things That I Hate

You Should Respect My Religion, Too

My cousin’s an atheist. I may be a Christian, but I support my cousin and she has a right to make her own choices. I’ve never teased or made fun of her or argued with her because of her beliefs. Yet whenever she comes over, she says I’m an idiot for believing in fairy tales. Okay, maybe you think what I believe in isn’t logical. Maybe you think it’s stupid. But that doesn’t mean you have any right to tell me what to believe in. I respect you, and don’t think any less of you for having different beliefs. Yet whenever you come over, you’re belittling me just because I believe in God. Grow up and let me make my own decisions.

  1. I’m an atheist, and agree with you that your cousin should respect you, even if she doesn’t respect your beliefs.
