Either your beliefs matter or they don’t. Do your beliefs matter? Or are you one of many, many, many sorts who claim beliefs but stay silenced by the fears of opprobrium? If you’re the latter what does that say about you?
Or, maybe it says more about your beliefs – not the content thereof, but your actual understanding of them. Maybe you don’t really believe in what you think you do. Maybe, that belief or yours is just a convenient placeholder and placard for what you really believe.
