Can beliefs be offensive by their very nature?
To an outsider, Christianity, is offensive in it’s exclusivity, and “it is the one true paths all others lead to hell”. Non believers are…swine. 😉
Other offensive beliefs may be that homosexuality is a “sin”,
that women are weaker vessels.
That all races are not created equally,
or perhaps they are but that they should be maintained separately, (no mixing).
To the atheist, the idea/concept of God is ludicrous, most pictures painted of him, through popular religions make him out to be a monster.
This is an offensive “belief”/idea to the faith holder of said religions.
There are a multitude of offensive beliefs people hold to.
Should said beliefs be not allowed?
Because they are offensive?
However, one must be prepared to understand that said beliefs WILL be offensive, and in the case of professing such beliefs, prepared to defend or represent them.
How then one chooses to represent said beliefs is another matter entirely.
