I know this is going to cause a big hoo-haa, but WHY do people feel it is okay to sermonize in other people's questions? I get the whole fishermen of men thing and even appreciate it. BUT Jesus said - go forth and be fishermen of men, NOT go forth and annoy everyone via every method possible. There are all religions, belief systems, and non-beliefs represented here. Why can't some people 'get' that?

I joined, then nabbed a large handful of paid ghostwriting jobs. Cut down on some and decided to give HP another go. Your answer is excellent. Thank you so much for answering.
In personal preference I feel that someone living the way they are commanded would sway me more to their thinking than yelling at me or calling me 'bad'. In everything, love and respect wins. Thank you for your answer!
Exactly. Well said. I enjoy helpful Hubs and answers. It is bothersome to pick through comments in order to find those that are well thought out, not a regurgitation of religious cannon. Thank you!
Thank you for answering. I try to be polite in my answers or comments. It's just hard to continue to do so when some people are very rude. I don't mind the sharing, it's only when people get rude that I get angry. Be well!
It is a far cry from "polite" when you delete someone's good faith answer (and that has nothing to do with religion, it's an expression)and then start a discussion which is reminiscent of junior high school about that person on HubPages!
I agree, your friend seems wise :-) Thank you for answering.
"They" do not lack a sense of humor - "they" is me and my sense of humor is quite intact, thank you. Next time, avoid speaking in generalities and participating in gossip about someone you don't know and situations with which you are unfamiliar.
Dubuque...thanks for the rebuke and the reminder!
Dubuquedogtrainer- if you continue to say such things on my answers- which involve not just you but SEVERAL run-ins with people that don't know when to stop- I will report you for personal attacks.
I'm referring to a comment I deleted that was offensive, in my eyes. It was basically a sermon on how sinners would be wiped out in a biblical end times scenario, I should have been more clear.
Julie, thanks for the clarification. I certainly understand, I get tired of those kinds of comments too.
Exactly - that's my point. Being rude doesn't help anyone or their stance.
