I have had a few of those classes, sociology,philosophy,and some psych classes. I think it is wonderful you are being open to see other viewpoints. That is one of the things college is suppose to do for you.

Some people are very rigid in their beliefs and do get offended if you question them. Even if you use logic and proof they are wrong, they will defend themselves. I have seen students drop out of classes because the class challenged beliefs they have grown up with. Also keep in mind that social norms of what is acceptable to believe has also changed throughout time.

For me I welcome the challenge against my beliefs because sometimes they have changed when I heard another side to things or they sometimes strengthen my beliefs too. But a lot of people are not like that. I could use examples but I don't know how to do that with the strict rules of this site.
