Right. Suggested that people aren't allowed to talk about their beliefs openly.

Cobblers. You can't expect to proclaim your religious ideas without being called on them. Religion no longer gets a free pass. Atheism doesn't either. we have to explain and justify what we say, why not religions?

What do you think?

Nowadays, you can't even go public with your beliefs yet it is ok for people to say that they don't believe in God. This is why I am scared to try to convince people to come to God. Folks get so upset.
You are welcome to tell me all about your god, but when I say NO MORE, or I walk away, YOU HAVE NO RIGHT to continue--THAT IS CALLED STALKING and HARASSMENT.


Also, you have NO RIGHT to make others live by the laws you think your god-in-the-tiny-box wants ME and OTHERS to follow. He is your god-in-the-tiny-box, you follow his laws and stop imposing on the rest of us.

I mean when they keep coming back after I have insulted them the first 5 times...LOL

I have take a few Mormon brothers to lunch and had a great time. But when the fundie at work starts telling me his testimony for the 32nd time, it becomes harassment...

Yeah, I get some costumers like that. I run a couple of storage facilities, and I have to lock after 3 months non payment, and a Christian woman be like,'' I thought you were a Christian, HOW DARE YOU LOCK MY UNIT, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A CHRISTIAN.''


Somehow, some people think business is mixed in there with their beliefs, and they are just there to tell you about God until somebody done got poked in the eye.


Sometimes you just gotta get you a .300 knockout, a throwin blade and some cameras and let it all go on Hardline with your wolf mask on.{always lookin for gamers}

The world hates God. I don't remember the chapter or number line of this, but, Jesus did say the world would hate us for it, and that the world hated him first.

Well, she's a Christian, how dare she steal from you, which is what she's doing by locking her stuff up in your units and not paying, but also not bothering to remove her stuff since she can't pay?

People are really odd sometimes.
