I understand not just Christianity offers hope and salvation, but this is the religion I have chosen. Because why should I explore other religions if I'm happy where I'm at?
I would not suggest that you explore other religions, because they, too, are based on the supernatural, not reality. Being happy with your beliefs has no bearing on their truth.
If a believer is happier than a skeptic, this is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. (George Bernard Shaw)
If you're happy with your spouse, would you cheat on him/her? No, you wouldn't.
Of course not, but a spouse is not a supernatural belief system. We are not asking you to cheat on your belief system, but rather to look at it rationally, skeptically, and critically.
So, why can't you respect that I'm a Christian, instead of insulting me everyday?
I can respect whatever beliefs you wish to hold, but the moment you assert them as reality to anyone, anywhere, anyhow, expect a response. I do not insult you, but your baseless, supernatural assertions are an assault to the human intellect, so why do they deserve respect?
Those who supported Adolf Hitler were nuttier than trail mix!
Actually they weren't. They were victims of their environment, and got caught up on a large bandwagon, just as you have. Indeed, they were different bandwagons, but bandwagons all the same.
