Respect all religions yet follow none, do your best to create a personal relationship with God.

Religions deserve no respect. They are generally built on dubious or outright false claims. While I will respect the individual's right to believe in a god and will advocate for that right, I will never respect appealing to that god to affect legislation, affect education, to discriminate, or ignore objective knowledge.

Respect what about religions, DrP? The conceited motives, the unethical practices, or the bad moral outcomes?

And why do I want a personal relationship with your idealistic conjecture?

Notice the underlined word, it should give you a hint as to why having a "personal" relationship with God is not possible.
Marrying a 6 year old and waiting until she reaches puberty and maturity before having consensual sex is better than walking up to
a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah
If they don't want to be killed then they have to subdue to the Islamic laws. - Uncung
Without God, you are lower than sh!t. ~ SpiritandTruth

Why would I respect belief systems that seek to make me do their will instead of my own?
