We're not so different
If you know me, chances are you know I don't follow any religion. You may know that I sometimes rail against Christianity. You may also know, I have similar feelings for most religions.
What you may not know is, I have no desire to end your religion. I will never knock on your door at 7:00am Saturday morning to tell you, " God does not exist. You are not going to Hell if you don't change."
I do not wish you harm because you pray to a god of your understanding. Regardless of whether it's Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Santeria, Sikhism, Hinduism, Paganism, or whatever, you are very close to my feelings on religion. That is, you disbelieve all of them, save yours. I just don't believe yours either.
I have no belief in 4,200 religions, the theist has no belief in 4,199 religions.
See, We are the same :-)
