Default I have never met a jew

I have never met a jew who tried to get me to convert to jewish religion.
I have never met a muslim who tried to get me to convert to muslim religion.
I have never met an islamic who tried to get me to convert to islam.
I have never met an aetheist who tried to make me become an aetheist.
I have never met a mormon who tried to make me become a mormon.

I have met a lot of christians who think that I am going to spontaneously combust if I don't start believing only in jesus.

My conclusion, christians are a cult not a religion.

I've never been an agnostic who cared to hear your opinion on the matter.

Christianity as a cult has been discussed and studied for quite some time, and they basically came to that conclusion.

The stuff Jesus taught I even have to admit is pretty good stuff. It's the organized religion and churches that fukc it up.

It is not about agree or disagree. It is a statement of my own personal experience.

living where you do, maybe you don't get this, but I get Mormon's (Latter Day Saint...) and Jehovah's Witnesses knocking on my door from time to time, they are there to preach their faith and get converts...

also there are lots of religions which are Christians, not all are the type to try to convert every soul they meet, and some, as part of their religion feel it is their duty to do so, please stop lumping them all together.

I just saw an awesome documentary on Netflix that Bill Mahr did about religion.
It really reaffirmed my agnostic opinion.

I think the point of this post, without getting into any particular religion (because they all do it, even atheists), is that people who proselytize suck.

you need to get out more. telecommuting has taken away your exposure to all sorts of cultures...

I've had hare krishna's hand me literature back when I was younger and would simply be polite and take their stuff to avoid a conversation, have had Latter Day Saints, as well as Jehova's Witnesses attempt to evangelize on my front porch.

I've seen many an atheist attempt to convince anyone that would read their preaching that there is no God. (a form of conversion) on multiple discussion forums.

isn't islamic / muslim the same?

oh, and have you read Dianetics? by L. Ron Hubbard...? Here.... take this complimentary copy...

While entertaining, it was only a "documentary" in the sense that Michael Moore's movies are "documentaries". It was "commentary".

The real issue is that the U.S. has a disproportionate number of "evangelicals", folks who believe that recruiting is an inherent part of their religious life, and that being a good recruiter makes one a better Christian. I went to Catholic school and an amazing number of my formerly observant Catholic friends/schoolmates have become non-Catholic evangelicals of the variety described.

I prefer my religion the way it was primarily practiced 50-75 years ago - i.e. low key and personal.

When I lived in apartments after college the mormon boys were constantly riding their bikes around and going from apartment to apartment trying to give out their religious literature. Now I mostly see Jehovahs and Obama supporters going door to door.
