Why do some people love to shove their ideas and beliefs down other people's throats?


You know, there are certain people with certain beliefs. They believe that only their idea is right and nothing else is. If you don't believe them for whatever reason, they call you names -- ignorant, moron, yada, yada. Why can't they accept that not everyone will accept their beliefs as truth? Why do they have to resort to name-calling and condemning?

    Thanks for mentioning those books! You are right, it is about you--yourself or me the person. When they start feeding you by the spoonful and it become bitter then you must stop eating their whatever they feed you on the spoon.

    That's one way to look at it Georgie. They really must be spoiled kids who are used to getting their way

    You have a point. It may be true that they do this to affirm their beliefs to themselves and maybe name-calling and condemnation is their way of responding to how people might not want what you refer to as their "service". Thanks Vlorsutes.

    You are absolutely right, though I don't have children of my own yet, I think that is very true in that case. People were given brains for them to use. Others should let them do just that.

    That is true. Unfortunately it seems that a lot of people feel the need to validate their beliefs and opinions by getting others to believe them, and can't simply accept that others may have differing opinions.

    I actually got the chance to read something very similar to what you described right here on hubpages. It makes me sad because instead of making themselves look better, the opposite happens. They are the ones who look ignorant and stupid.

    Many people these days are getting caught up in New Age Religion instead of focusing on the best seller The Bible.

    That is true. I am a Christian myself and we are taught that if a person disagrees, let them because condemning or arguing with them will not lead to their salvation. In fact, it has the opposite effect. Some still can't grasp this fact though.
