Today I was in the ER and this guy with a really gross eye infection say down next to me. I made up some stupid crap about how he should find God but he wouldn't take the hint and sit somewhere else, even after 4 hours. FML.

I think it is stupid when believers try and convert non-believers. Nothing against people who have fait and believe in religion I just find it completly disrespectful when someone trys to convert somone. its the same when a non believer trys to convince a believer its just disrespectful

Tell him to shut up and mind his own business. You don't have to listen to him proselytizing if you don't want to.

Well, technically they're only doing the right thing. It's in the Bible that you're supposed to try to save as many non believers as possible by witnessing to them, but I still think it's pretty disrespectful.

Then it's also disrespectful for non-religious people to rabidly insist that there is no god and that religious people are idiots, it goes both ways. The way I see it people should just stfu about their beliefs when no one asked.

it also says to love thy neighbor, this is regardless of tone of skin or belief, it's not a believers mission to convert people it's the idea that we should show love and respect to the people around us, not force our beliefs down their throats

Think of it this way: the Christian honestly cares about people enough to show them a better life and save them from hell. The atheist is trying to save the Christian from wasting their time. As someone who values friendly debate and the general pursuit of truth, I find it disheartening that attempting to change someone's mind is "taboo" now. Friendly back-and-forth sharpens our minds instead of pretending that everyone's views, no matter how ignorant, are equally valid.

at least the biker wasnt like he used to be. it couldve been a lot worse. he couldve been non-religious, and you couldve said something that really offended him. then youd have a real reason to be at the hospital.

I thought it was a very sensible question. If it were me, and if he wasn't a big scary biker man, I would have asked whether Jesus could have bumped me up the queue if I converted. I've found that the best way to deal with attempted conversions is to debate with the converter over the higher points of their theocratic tendencies until they inadvertently admit to being hypocrites. Then again, I do have an awful lot of time on my hands. As to #12 and #16, half the point of attempting conversions is to strengthen your own religious beliefs. If someone is being obstinate or illogical, that is their true fault, not the fact that they are broaching matters that could determine the fate of a (existent or otherwise) soul. Also, the fact that you don't believe in the sanctity of Christ is probably just as much of an insult as saying 'Why, Jesus?'. Nice story. Thanks.
