No Phony Respect

You ought not to affect respect for someone’s religion any more than you should feign respect for his belief in fairies. You are just encouraging his delusion with your dishonest pretence. On the other hand, so long as his nutty beliefs do not cause him to attack you (e.g. as Christians attack gays or deny civil rights) you have no business trying to make his life miserable.
