What is it about christianity that some proponents can't leave other people alone?
Many Christian denominations emphasize proselytizing as an essential activity for believers. Some even require missionary work. The Biblical justification for proselytizing is often based on this verse, Luke 14:23:
And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Christians often feel that they will be rewarded for witnessing, especially if they are reviled or persecuted by those they are witnessing to. If you Google "Christian witnessing" you will find many sites that explain the importance of it and some directions on how to do it successfully.
Psychologists have surmised that this mania for proselytizing comes from their inner fear of being wrong and so if they can convince someone else then they feel they're right. Also, the personal "investment" they've put into their faith makes them fear they may have wasted their time. It's an addiction.
I agree with you Mr.Clark. This Ken guy hasn't read The Origin Of Species or much of anything else either. It doesn't look like he's even read the bible. But maybe this discussion will help him to take a second look. Maybe he should start with a review of how many people his "Loving" god was resopsible for killing in the old testament. The estimate is around 2 million and this includes a LOT of innocent children.. I could go on and on about it, but it's best if people like that find out on their own.
You could also leave tracts like "Kissing Hank's Ass".
If I ever seen a bible I would probably burn it.
I'd love to rip it up and flush it, but that might be considered vandalism. Sigh.
A few drops of superglue does a bibo good. It also leads to ick reactions that encourage others to throw the book away.
That's really funny! I think I'll go with Elmer's. More natural.
I remember when we had the old outhouse as a kid. Usually the Sears catalog was in there and us kids would enjoy the pictures of women in bras and underwear. Maybe we would enjoy them too long, but we knew what the book was for.
In a hotel with Gideon bibles you could inform the clerk as you were leaving that a few pages were missing. Tell him you are sorry, but you ran out of toilet paper.
