My faith requires way less faith than your faith
Well Ryan, I don’t stop bashing the faiths of others because in many cases their incorrect beliefs about the world cause grievous harm to many of its occupants, and I give a shit about the suffering of others.
In other cases, people’s faith gives them a bad reason to be good (when good reasons are perfectly available) while spreading the idea that being unreasonable is ok, which feeds all of the people in the previous category.
And your faith requires less faith than mine? First, what is my faith? You didn’t say, which makes it hard for me to defend myself, since I have no clue what you’re getting at. Is science my faith? If you think my faith in science requires more faith than yours, I can show you my cell phone. Show me your god.
However, if you’re just throwing out “your beliefs require more than mine” because you heard it in church and didn’t really think about it before regurgitating it to me, then there’s still a chance you’ll take a moment to consider the implications of that sentence. In that case, there’s still hope that you could actually discuss and defend your beliefs admirably and fairly, even if you don’t change them. But defending your faith-based beliefs with “you require more faith than me” as if faith is a bad thing (which I think it is), doesn’t cut it, Ryan.
