Church Etiquette Rule # 3: Don’t bash other religions at church (or really ever)

It’s not uplifting for anyone.

Most members of the the LDS church have family members and/or close friends who worship differently than they do and speaking negatively of these faiths is a sure way to drive positive feelings from any Sunday school classroom.

I got a question from a young woman the other day who felt badly that she didn’t stick up for her parent’s religion in class, she (like we often do) thought of the perfect comeback to the insensitive comment a few hours later once she had calmed down, but only her journal got to hear it. I think in general, we can all help each other out by focusing on our religious similarities and bridge building, instead of tearing each other down.

 

Readers: How do you stay positive when others might forget this rule?
