Have you ever been "attacked" for believing in something/being something?
I'm talking about actual harassment in real life, not online arguments or little squabbles about something. Have you ever been threatened, physically hurt, etc. by someone who disliked something you are/believe in?
Yes I have. I have been pestered by a neighbor who is a "christian" who doesn't like that we are not religious. She asked, I was honest and then the little passive aggressive vandalism and acts towards our property started.
Several years back, I did have one "stalker" for lack of a better word that would call me on my unlisted number(s) and harass me for writing and promoting "new age" beliefs because they were from the devil etc. ... sigh. I remember being scared of that because here is someone who doesn't know me - who has taken the time to find me and then find my "unlisted: personal numbers no less, to tell me how "evil" I am. Hmmm funny I'm not the one stalking people dude lol. Eventually I just stop answering the phones and ignored it and he went away. He found me through my website and I guess he deluded himself into thinking he was saving people's souls by intimidating me or something. sigh.
People really need to live and let live. I've never found it necessary to harass people who don't share my beliefs - I can't understand that mentality.
yes i have. in high school i used to ridiculed every day because i was bi sexual. i got into fights and even thrown into lockers because of it but it never stopped me from being who i wanted to be.
Sure, as a follower of Christ, that is expected and part of what it means to follow Christ. The battles we fight are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil. We just have to be mindful every morning to put on that full armor of God. In His Love, Faith Reaper
yes, and because the goverment are retards they sided with the idiots. and I was fined. With that I'm going to let it go.

Do you think that belief in something requires thinking it is real?If not, please explain how one would go about believing in something one does not think to be real if no clear physical evidence for it exists.
