  • It’s ok to use rituals that make you feel closer to your spirituality (prayer, confession, divination, celebrating holidays etc)
  • It’s ok to believe in magic and things that are not traditionally considered “religious”
  • It’s ok to combine religions- you can believe in parts of Christianity without being Christian, you can believe in parts of Buddhism without being Buddhist, you can believe in parts of Wicca without being Wiccan, just as long as you legitimately believe it

Important:

  • It’s not ok to call someone crazy for their religion
  • It’s not ok to tell someone they’re going to hell for any reason
  • It’s not ok to force your own religion on someone
  • It’s not ok to tell people science disproves their religion- yes, believe it or not, this is not ok
  • It’s not ok to tell people that religion is all there is
  • It’s not ok to tell people that science is all there is
  • It’s not ok to tell someone they aren’t allowed to believe in something just because they were born believing something else
  • It’s not ok to tell someone they’re not allowed to believe in or worship the same religion that you do because they’re of a different race, ethnicity, country, or personal history: I know certain religious rituals are sacred to certain ethnicities and that is not what I’m saying, I’m saying it is not ok to tell someone “You aren’t ___ so you aren’t allowed to believe in this god/spiritual figure/type of after life/type of spirit” how they worship is one thing if the religion is native to a different country/ethnicity/history BUT STOP TELLING PEOPLE THEY AREN’T ALLOWED TO BELIEVE IN __ BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT FROM __ THAT IS NOT OK

Conclusion: As long as someone is not actually causing harm, you do not have a right to judge, criticize, or try to “disprove”/“discredit” their beleif system

That is wrong

That is not ok
