Celebrate

Celebrate your beliefs and cherish your faith. All I ask is the same. Just don't demand that my beliefs and actions are bound by yours. Live and let live.

What you believe isn't important to me. Your freedom to choose what to believe, that is vital. That is what I will defend.

Live under their beliefs

Why should I be expected to live under their beliefs if they aren't willing to live under mine?

My faith

My faith and beliefs are at least as important to me as yours are to you.

Legislation and morality

Legislation is not morality, and morality certainly isn't legislation. The distinction must be made. Otherwise politicos wrap themselves in the flag AND hide behind the most convenient faith/moral code they can find. Arguing over morality keeps us honest. We're better when we verbally defend our ideas to people who don't necessarily share our beliefs.

Purge a belief system

It's never common sense to purge a belief system, especially when you do it in the name of moral superiority.

Enlightened

No matter what the belief system, the truly enlightened don't need to call themselves that.

Or justify it either.

Govern

Your beliefs shouldn't govern my behavior.

“Who said I don't believe in gods?”

Who said I don't believe in gods?

If anything, I don't believe in your beliefs. But that's okay, you don't believe in mine either. I could qualify it and say more specifically I don't believe in your understanding of your beliefs (and I'm pretty sure you don't either), but that is complicating things far beyond what is needed for the conversation here. Not to mention being incredibly self-referential.
