Religion is like a penis. It's fine to have, it's fine to be proud of it, but please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.

I suppose it's better than targeting somebody that is of a different religion.

Same concept applies, though.

How does the same concept apply #11? One is a belief in supernatural claims and the other is a rejection of those claims until evidence is presented to the contrary.

#9 being an atheist means you don't believe in god(s) or religion and its teachings. An agnostic is someone who doesn't belong to religion, but may still believe in a god(s). It's a pretty common misconception

I agree it is the same thing though, a they have the right to believe that there is no higher power at all, that is still a belief.

I think the same concept applies here though in that it makes no difference whether the person being targeted is atheist or has a religion different to Christianity - the person is still trying to change their beliefs so it is no better to target an atheist than someone of a different religion.

#33, ANTItheists believe that there IS NO god. Atheists DON'T believe that there IS a god. Antitheism is a claim, atheism is a rejection of a claim. It's the difference between saying, "I don't think there is," and, "There is not."

#23, agnosticism is just about lack of knowledge. Agnostics (and gnostics) are still theists or atheists and they certainly can belong to a religion.

Don't you just want to punch customers in the face sometimes? People need to mind their own business, especially when it comes to religion, and especially if you are holding up the line.

Its not just religion that people loose their public decency over. My mother owns and runs her business out of our home and some of hers and the woman that works for hers customers lack common decency all together about various topics. And it could get absolutely intense when someone hits a political, religious, sexual orientation, and so on.

very true. expressing your opinion and trying to get them to see it is all fine, but have it somewhere in a private location, not out in public where it can cause issues or turn in into a shaming event of some caliber.

Ok "professormctitie" if you're going to be butthurt about people and try to correct what seems to be a typo or slight misunderstanding, then let me inform you of this: You spelled titty wrong in your username. Have a nice day.

Are we really questioning whether it is fun to have a penis? Feel free to remove yours if you don't need it. @8 I wish I could like this more than once. I will remember it though and quote you by the next chance.

She was trying to share her faith out of concern. Inappropriate but touching.

How can you find that touching ? She's being completely disrespectful, you should respect other people's religion, but you should also respect people's choice not to be religious.

Well if you genuinely believed people were doomed to an eternity of torment if they didn't think the same way as you, wouldn't you want to help them? This lady has probably been taught that by someone, it's sad.

Concern for what? OP was perfectly happy before the lady started shoving religion down her throat. That's not concerning that's being rude and not minding the fact that some people have different opinions.

I get what #15 was saying I think, that if you believe people need God and will be more fulfilled having a relationship with Him, and that they will go to Hell if they do not believe in Him and Jesus Christ, then you may really want someone to believe what you do, because you don't want them to suffer unnecessarily. So it may have been motivated by concern but I don't think it was appropriate and she should not have done that at a grocery store, I think she should be respectful of people's beliefs but it can be easy to lose perspective when you have that mindset of 'everyone around me will go to Hell if they don't believe in Christ'. It is a horrible mindset to have, for you and others around. But although it was wrong in my opinion to push your faith on someone, it may well have been motivated by concern.

Or she was just trying to worm her way into heaven for 'saving' OP's soul, which most likely meant she was preaching unwanted beliefs, and clearly in the wrong place and time. If she was truly concerned she would've recognised how inappropriate she was being and left a leaflet for OP about the local church.
