I do believe that a person should be able to live their individual life based on how and what they’re beliefs are as long as their beliefs do not break the law or cause harm to another person. I do not think a person should become a part of an organization that engages in activity that cause you to go against your beliefs or convictions. I do not believe that would be possible, the reason I say that is because if a group of people are practicing a way of life that is against their beliefs how could they become involved with that group of people. You would think differently and you would not be in agreeance with any of their activity which would make extremely difficult for you to become involved with that group. One of the strongest sides of a person is their beliefs and you don’t find many people who are willing to go against their beliefs.
In response to your peers, consider how their argument compares to yours. Do you agree with their position? Why or why not? Did their position agree with yours, but they made a point you hadn’t considered? Did they make the opposite argument, but you found yourself agreeing with parts of their logic? Which of their points or arguments make the most sense to you, even if you still disagree with their overall position?
