But I didn’t say you shouldn’t like Taoism. I said I don’t like it. I said I think it leads to apathy. I can say those things without the world ending. It shouldn’t be any more important than my saying I don’t like linear algebra — that’s it more complex than it’s worth.

You can still love it and I can still hate it.

What I’m saying is that there’s nothing special about disagreeing with religious beliefs — not that Taoism is actually religious.
