Not sure why you would ask the original question then - if it is no one's business, then what does it matter if people ask - you seen to be angry enough to be rude to any religious inquiry, so what is your concern?

If one takes the time to READ my original question I explain how several people mentioned having be confronted in Lexington so I was asking if people LIVING in Louisville had ever had similar experiences in order to determine if same was practiced there. Now since you don't live in Louisville and have never I fail to see how any thing you have to say is relevant to this discussion.

Why is what YOU feel any more important than what someone else feels?
Maybe they feel it IS their business to at least mention the topic.
If there's more than 1 person in the entire world that feels that way, you're outvoted. Is tolerance only something OTHER people should have?

Again, that person doesn't live in Louisville and since that was the reason( to find out if same occurred in Louisville) what good would it do to hear from someone who has not lived there????????

The bottom line is that religion is too personal to go around just asking people... and it really is no one's business. It is at least as rude as asking someone how much they make or who they sleep with...

I'm sorry, 'irvm' but that is just not a very valid argument that you are making. That anyone anywhere has can do whatever they feel or be as rude as they want to, and it should be tolerated. If people do not have respect for each other, what kind of communities are we living in? Feeling that it is your business to know what someone's religion...that is about as rude or as dissrespectful as it gets. It kind ofcomes across as a 'witch hunt'; and it is often a loaded question anyway. I could understand in the context of family or friends discussing religion in a very open way...

And the next thing they would say to a newcomer is, come on by our church sunday. It gets asked more as a welcoming gesture and chance to get to know people thing, than a let's cram our beliefs down this heathens throat. Maybe you would feel more comfortable if you were invited to a keg party instead? I was an atheist the whole time i lived in Louisville, if you were wondering.

That's quite a leap...if someone declines an offer to join someone at their church, they might feel more comfortable at a keg party? That really perpetuates the whole notion that people on one 'team' are the good guys...and people on another 'team' are the bad guys. Categorizing people by religion is a very one dimesional way of looking at people. I could care less if someone believes in chritianity, is jewish, budhist, muslim, atheist... It may sound cheesy, but I only care if people are respectful, honest, kind, tolerant and treat others the way that they would hope to be treated. And I bears repeating, generally people who want to broadcast their religion, or are so readily wanting to sell it to other people...are usually the ones doing scandalous business behind closed doors...

*And no, I wasn't wondering if you were an atheist...

That is how ridiculous this whole conversation is.

I have been asked about my religious beliefs while living both in Louisville and Lexington. However, neither were frequent enough that the average visitor would necessarily experience it. On occasions in both cities, it was by someone who wanted to "spread the word" of their particular church.
