11. The very act of characterizing beliefs as "what anyone uses to get through...

...a dark, lonely and scary night" is an act of demoting those beliefs to little more than a coping mechanism, implicitly if not explicitly denying or strongly doubting the seriousness of those beliefs as any sort of deeper understanding, wisdom, or truth.

While you clearly respect the right of people to believe whatever they want, your wording makes it very doubtful you actually respect those beliefs themselves.

Does that make you guilty of bullying too? If not, where else in this thread does the issue of bullying come up?
