Can, or should one be expected to hide, dilute, or simply deny their own beliefs so as not to offend, or disrespect the majority?
How is it considered disrespectful for an Atheist, Agnostic, Muslim, Buddhist, Skhi, Heathen, etc. etc. etc. etc. To proclaim their beliefs?
If your beliefs are conflicting, how does one trump the other? Do you play Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who wins?
*note that this is a S/O of a Q in which a woman was told that she was being disrespectful of someones beliefs, simply by stating her own.

I think there are ways to state thoughts and beliefs with out being completely disrespectful. You can say that you think your belief is the right one with out putting others down. Unfortunately sometimes no matter how nice you say things some will see it as disrespectful because it is not what they believe to be right.
