I believe that is no right or wrong way to look at the world. Many different people from all walks of life have different ideas and beliefs. Who are we tell them that they cannot believe what they believe? Countless times in human history we have discriminated against people for their beliefs. It is important for us to allow everyone the freedom to their beliefs, even if you do not necessarily agree with those beliefs. We do not have to believe what they believe or even back them in their belief, but we must allow them to practice their faith without interference.
