How did I possibly put someone down by saying that my belief was one specific way? I consider putting someone down to be calling them names, degrading them, etc...

Crystal clear. So far that's the only one you've accepted.

But I understand that your beliefs are important to you, and it would be natural to want to have them supported. *If* it's important for you to be free to put down others and to have that supported, then for *that purpose* other forums are more appropriate.

That's how I took it, yes....yes, my beliefs are important to me. I can't believe don't understand at all. It isn't important for me to "put others down", but it is important for me to be able to express myself as equally as anyone else.
