"I don't think you're a bad person, I just think you do bad things."
I couldn't take it seriously until I heard specifics. Out of all the activities I do, and all the opinions in the world, it's going to be certain that they will be opposed. But I can't walk around a permanent state of being offended, it would be unbearable. And someone actually saying it doesn't change anything: "Come out of the woodwork at last, have you?"
What is their motivation for saying what I do (or believe) "bad"? What is their reasoning? Are they pointing out a hole in my own thinking or exposing one in theirs by saying those words?
The person in question was condemning "witchcraft, the occult, reincarnation, esoteric practices, talking with the dead, believing in many gods." I don't condemn them, but I do disagree with half of them (meaning I don't subscribe to them). But by condemning them wholesale without examining them you risk throwing out the baby with the bath water. There some dangerous aspects in them, so they have to be treated carefully and critically, but there's some good stuff in them that can be retrieved and used.
If someone condemns dogmatically without any examination, I'd suggest they're missing out. They're losing more than me by saying it, and it hurts me none... except maybe my pride.
"I think you're a bad person."
Depends on who says that. If it's a stranger on the street (or message board), then I couldn't take it seriously. I know myself better than a stranger (all ins and outs, ups and downs). If it's someone I know and trust that says that to me then something is "wrong" and I need to think about why they said it. Doesn't mean they're right, but they would say it for a reason, which would need to be examined.
"I think it's okay for other people to do those things, but for me personally, it's unacceptable."
That's sounds more reasonable, if a little relativist. There are some things I feel are "personally unacceptable", meaning I wouldn't do them, though others are free to do them. At the same time, I don't always feel it's "okay for them to do them", because it causes unnecessary harm to me, other people, other lifeforms or the planet. That's my right. But I don't have the right to impose my own sense of "right and wrong" on others, just as they don't have the right to impose theirs on mine.
I have opinions and feelings about what is "right and wrong", come to through my own reasoning or simply the reactions of my body, i.e. my conscience. I'm not going to repress what I think of as a natural feeling. But the function of my conscience is as a personal guide in my life, and not something I feel is universal or infallible (well, conscience, like intuition, can be infallible, but perception and interpretation of it may not be).
There's something similar being said on this thread
between DaRC and Illion, about "evil/bad acts."
