Why should we respect…

an opinion just because it is ‘religious?’  I am minded to write this because of the latest spats over ‘my god is the real one!’ ‘No it’s not, mine is!’  ‘Yours tells you to kill people.’ So does yours, so there.’  If somebody says something downright ridiculous like, ‘god sends malaria to kill children and old people in poor countries for a reason, this is my belief.*’ why should we respect that opinion just because the person saying it states that it is a religious belief?  Why should it not be ridiculed – and why should we be especially upset if someone does ridicule it?

*Example inferred from nonsense going on on another blog.
