18. If you can discuss your own personal belief without denigrating the belief of others,

you might be OK. You know what is in your heart, as I said upthread.

"I used to believe 'x'....but then I came to realize that the people who believed that are ignorant fools with their heads up their behinds, so I decided to cast my lot with 'y' instead, " is probably not the sort of thing that would be appreciated here at all.

"I came to believe "x" after I read (this book) and (that book) and talked to (this person)" would probably not raise any hackles at all. That's a personal journey and it doesn't play this "This is good but THAT sucks" game.

The Religion Group is still available if you want to say "I was a ...... for years, and one day I woke up and realized that my entire POV was bullshit, so I abandoned it in favor of ....."

If you're hurting anyone's feelings with your comments, this just isn't the place for that kind of thing.
