It Says So Right Here

One thing that strikes me as interesting about religion (well, Christianity, really) in the United States is how expansive the boundaries of faith can become. Of course, for many religious people, faith touches on many areas of their lives - including the lives of other people. I had always somewhat annoyed when people that I'd never met before presumed to lecture me on what I believed. But with the realization that what I believe is just as much a tenet of their faith as, say, a belief in miracles, I've become more accepting of their confidence in their ability to know the minds of strangers, and my annoyance is shifting to curiosity.
