Jim: You know that religion is a taboo subject, especially with Paul. Why were you baiting him all through dinner?
Tammy: I wasn’t baiting him. We have very different views on spirituality and I wanted to discuss the subject with him.
Jim: You were making disparaging remarks about his faith and some of the things he holds most sacred. I think you were trying to be provocative.
Tammy: I may have said a few things that were provocative, but I don’t understand how people can believe in superstitions.
Jim: There you go again! People’s religious beliefs shouldn’t be called superstitions.
Tammy: I’m just calling it like I see it. I didn’t know you were such a fundamentalist.
Jim: I’m not a fundamentalist. In fact, I’m an atheist, or at least an agnostic, but I still try to show respect for other people’s beliefs.
Tammy: Beliefs are made to be challenged. If you can’t defend your beliefs, you shouldn’t have them.
Jim: Ladies and gentlemen, behold the voice of tolerance.
