Do we have to hide in the closet about our beliefs today? It sure feels like it!

    Hi Doc Snow. I voted it up. I am definitely not closeted. I am a Mormon. I am one of those "pushy" types. Some people feel they have to hide their faith. I am sure many Americans who were Islamics may have felt this way in recent times.

    Msorensson, thanks for posting and voted up. I think that your comment is European idea--that beliefs are personal. It is starting to be more accepted in America but not yet. We still wear our beliefs on our sleeves as of yet.

    Thanks for commenting and voted up. I agree that more and more people may feel that way. It is okay too. This is the right of all people to believe as they please. Some of us believe that we have to spread our beliefs and that is okay too.

    Now this is what I am talking about. You cannot express you faith due to other's prejudice. You choose not to believe, which is a faith in itself, and you must guard it to feel comfortable in society. You must live in the Southeast!

    Edhan, thanks for that insightful answer and voted up. I voted up a lot of answers. I do agree with you a little. I think your religion can skew your view of what is good for mankind. Take the Extremists of religion, they kill to show their faith.

    Thanks for answering. I posed this question to start discussion. I am not in the closet about my faith. I am a Mormon and I believe in Jesus Christ. I do believe that people would prefer me to be a closet Mormon though.
