  • Yes, very much so. IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN
  • I respect all people's right to believe what they will concerning God. However, I just have to point out that the opposite question could also be asked. Do religious people get tired of atheist trying to force their beliefs off on them? Religious people, do you get tired of atheists trying to force you out of the public discourse. Both sides have their intolerant fanatics that persecute those on the other side and it does no good to let either group try to shut out the other.
  • Of course! I can't stand it, I despise it... whenever it does happen though, I just turn it around and make them look foolish, and I love that.
  • I can speak for some of us spiritual people, that we do not try to convert you by force...we give you a choice. I don't like religious people that much myself. And, I definitly DO not hate you. The very emotion is a waste of energy and life. It's not my place to tell you how to believe.
  • Nope, I've done my research and have no qualms with my own beleifs and LOVE have discussions with people of other beleifs. It is very hard or impossible to talk somebody out of what they TRULY beleive.
  • ever since i told that i was an athiest ive next to been forced throw church even trancefered to a religios school they keep saying im in deniel and i cant convince them im not insane its killing me i want to go back to my friends,or whats left of them only a few still back me up, but i say this now if there is a god then i will NEVER!!! folow that basterd so stop trying to change me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
  • Most times Absofrickinglutely! Other times I find it amusing.
  • I find it rather amusing actually : P If I didn't receive actual threats all the time, I'd just laugh right in their face : D I just don't think it's wise to laugh at people apparently hell-bent on killing you. (And yes, I'm sick of being threatened) Actually on occasion I've put the threats to the test by actually giving the people all of my contact details, my home address, my timetables of when and where I can be found, etc. Surprisingly none of them have had any real intention behind them; it was just people being nasty to me because I don't think there's such thing as a God...
  • I could do without the people telling me to convert to the jesus camp.
  • esp when I get bombarded at work(illegally), in my own home, on the street, at school, etc.
  • Most of my family is religious to a certain extent, so I respect them. I don't think they know I have given up on the whole God/religion thing. What I hate is the way some people think they have right to spend public tax money to push their version of religion on people who don't believe the same way. I do not approve of using court rooms and class rooms to promote their agenda.
  • I've had a few try to "convert" me. Some have been rather harsh (YOU ARE GOING TO HELL type of stuff), but most have been very nice about it. Everyone has their perspective. Some people prefer cats over dogs. And I've never read about a war over that.
  • Yeah, it gets old after awhile... But I'm sure me telling them to get over their silly superstitions gets old to them too.... I hope they're sick of me!
  • Yes. I HATE that.
  • Not anymore, I've perfected a look I throw their way that makes them scuttle for hidden corners.
  • Yes, yes! Sick and tired of all of the bullshit that goes on which is the reason why I get on their face here and anywhere else I can to give them a taste of their own medicine. Of course, I doubt they'll ever be able to see that much less understand it
  • I got past "sick" a long time ago, anymore I just give them the Richard Dawkins approach!
  • Yeah, but it kind of comes with the territory.
  • I don't normally talk about my beliefs to people I don't know, but if they are witnessing to me I just listen, smile and thank them for their time. Usually I just get a "God bless" and then a pamphlet about how to get saved.
  • I'm sick of people "hating," but not so much of trying to convert. In their minds they are doing their moral duty. What irks me is that they keep using the same old debunked arguments, and when you point out the flaws in their logic, they deny them. - Also, it seems to me that an atheist is held to the highest standards of explanation. If we don't believe in god, we have to be able to explain everything about everything. In contrast, the believer doesn't need to explain anything. God did it.
  • Yes, but its ok. I hate them right back!
  • But I'm so dazzled by thier brilliant bible quotations!
  • I hate it you should be able to believe what you want without having to fight about it
  • personally I don't care. :P I find it hilarious when they try to convert me through faith based evidence... if that makes sense. :P Contempt for me, lolol I tell them that it isn't christian like behavior to do so. :D
  • Far more religious people are at risk of health and life for believing than atheists are for not believing.
  • Sick? No..a bit annoyed? Sure.. If they hate me that's their problem. You gotta take a number, fill out an application form and make an appointment and get in line to hate me.
  • I'm past that point. I'm hitting back now and having a lot of fun with it. Who knows, I may one day start knocking on doors at 8 am on Sundays trying to get them to read a copy of Origin of The Species by Charles Darwin
  • I get really pissed when they start saying I am going to burn in hell for it. How rude to say I deserve torment and torture for eternity, and question my morals while claiming you worship such a being. If they hate me and leave me alone I could care less, I have better things to worry about.
