Richard S said:Are you really certain that I should have betrayed what I firmly believe to be just and true simply to 'keep peace' in the family and not 'disturb' them in any way? Is it really 'externally considerate' to keep silent and participate in things which one knows are actually evil? Where does this stop?
This is how 'most people' incrementally 'slide downhill'! At least, this is how I see it.
But Richard, you would not have betrayed what you firmly believe to be just and true by going to the baptism. As a member of PC you believe that it is wrong for you, not for others. Do you understand that one of the major aspects of PC is a live and let live approach that is missing from major monotheistic religions? The approach you are taking is the intolerant approach of major mainstream religions.
