Your religion is personal to you and although you may have interests in other religious views it does not mean that you accept them - Everyone can choose what is right for them.

Extracts from this document...


AO3 People who are not Christian have their own beliefs about life. Your religion is personal to you and although you may have interests in other religious views it does not mean that you accept them. Everyone can choose what is right for them. People shouldn't try and make others accept their point of view because others have very different opinions on the subject.

I wouldn't want people not to listen because people really believe these views. I think the stronger side of the argument is getting people to listen but not necessarily accept your views because you find out about other people's views and they find out about yours.
