Dave, don’t worry about being offensive. You believe what you believe, but other people believe what they believe, too. Old guy & professional point of view: it’s a personality thing. If you so chose, you would arouse much less passion, in yourself and others, if you decided that is just the way it is with you and others, and that there is no need to challenge them unless it is a REALLY important issue! Happy eating!
