31st October 2014

“I feel that this constant demand for respect makes a great many people privately very resentful. Why should respect be extracted from us, for any and every religion, or any and every culture? It amounts to a statutory requirement of hypocrisy.”

    I believe Minettte is overreacting – I certainly don’t feel “this constant demand for respect” that she feels. Regarding resentful people, Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.” That said, as I learned (as an atheist) during my 24-year Marine Corps career, respect must be earned – it cannot be commanded (or “demanded”).
