    I don't see the reason anyone needs to be outrightly rude
    to anyone like I just stated in the subject.

    In my experience, I've met people on hubpages who pretend to be Christian, or it says they are in their profile lol what poppycock! And then they act totally opposite. I find this sad.

    I also find it sad that one particular hubber tried for 2 years to convert me to atheism and since had no luck, dropped me like a hot potato!

    I will never be converted to atheism! I love my faith and God - the Christian Faith- I am a Christian/Catholic.

    I find great joy in prayer and wouldn't give it up for anything.

    Thank you!

    P.S.

    I don't have a problem having diverse friendships because I do, but I choose not to be close to those
    who purposely go out of thier way to insult others.

      You find great joy in prayer?

      One thing I noticed as I gradually rejected Christianity and drifted into other beliefs is that prayer, and the feelings I got while praying, were not exclusive to Christianity or even to focusing on God or the supernatural at all. Emotional epiphanies, profound feelings of comfort, warmth, soaring joy and overwhelming sadness are all part of the human experience. Religious experiences, and certain drug induced experiences, are some of the ways to induce these mental states, but I've found that when you want them that aspect of your consciousness is always there to be accessed. Music sets it off for me a lot of the time, or a meaningful memory, or a vivid dream.

      To experience the depths and heights of human emotion doesn't require gods or superstitions of any kind.

      I've been an atheist for nearly three years now and all that stuff they tell you as a Christian, about being "empty" without Jesus to "fill the hole in your life" is a load of BS plain and simple. I'm more happy than I ever was as a Christian and all those warm and fuzzy feelings you get while praying, they exist for me too, no imaginary friend required.

      Of course I could never convert you to atheism... but why is that? Is it rude atheists who have closed your mind to the possibility you are wrong? Or was it always closed?

        no reason, I just don't plan on changing mainly the reason I'm sure of it, is not only because I'm happy as I am, but because since it's been tried and hasn't worked, I don't think it ever wiil smile

    Do you not see, in your post, where you went out of your way to be outright rude concerning Christians you have philosophical differences with?

      I'm talking about people who are pretenders, who state they are Christian but take the side of non belivers. They are like sock puppets who use their profile to confuse others and then go against them once they get them to open up. lol

        Hmmm.  That's interesting.  In religious discussions I often '...take the side of nonbelivers.' because they happen to be right.  Sometimes Christians are wrong in their behavior, literally to the point of being disobedient to the word of God.  They excuse their abusive words, pushy attitudes, and, sometimes, actual sin by saying it's okay because the other is a non-believer, and that it's okay to go to whatever lengths necessary to convince others that God exists and Jesus is the way. 

        I also vehemently defend my right to believe and worship as I choose, to pray for whomever I wish, and to expect respect from whomever I'm speaking with whether I call myself a Christian or not. 

        The fact is there is hatred, anger, abuse, and just plain ignorance that comes speeding over the fence from both sides.

        For the most part, everyone with whom I discuss religion on HP is quite aware of the fact that I am a former nun and a committed Catholic Christian.  Some of the most adamant nonbelievers have become my friends here by allowing me to explain things they don't understand, asking me questions, and being willing to do the same for me.  We may never agree, but we can learn to respect each other.

        Just because a person is willing to acknowledge the mistakes made by members of their faith, and apologize to nonbelievers when they, as a Christian, are hostile in their attitude or actions, doesn't mean in any way that they are less Christian than you are OR that they are hypocrites. 

        IMO.  big_smile

            No.  That's what I said.  You began by saying that ant-Christians are rude.  You then said that there are those who say they're Christian but then 'take the side of the nonbeliver.'  I responded to those points.

          I'm afraid accepting Christ doesn't negate the ability to think freely, for intelligent people. Others appear to call free thinking hypocrisy and add ridiculous laughy faces when they do it. Unfortunately, they don't recognize their own hypocrisy. Pity.

            the pity I see is when atheists here on hp say it's a mental illness to belive in God, that's just silly and plain rude.

              Offering an explanation to a phenomenon may be silly and anyone who thinks so is free to debate it and show it to be silly, but it is not rude because it is not a personal insult towards anyone.

              So, instead of claiming pity, show some debate, instead. smile

      I see rudeness in both directions.

        Yes there is. In both directions.

      First, you don't need to be converted to atheism, it's not a religion. It would be like saying someone tried to convert you to philosophy. As for being rude, I tend to agree with you, nobody should be. Different people believe different things, and in an ideal world that would be perfectly acceptable. The real problem starts when some of us try to convince others that they are wrong instead of accepting their difference. In other words, you're perfectly free to believe in God or any other prophet, but when you start to try to sell a slice of that to people who don't happen to share your beliefs, you are actually insulting their intelligence. Nobody likes to be considered a moron, so some people will become verbally more agressive, and yes, rude.

        No, this person posted on their facebook wall a derogatory remark saying that in a generalized way that 'Christians were lazy' and expect everyone else to do the work regarding the presedential election. I corrected them saying, that I'm not lazy and I'm a Christian and further more I have done things politically. It's just an example of a person who pretends/acts like they are God's gift to the planet but on their own time, although they preach and write for HP about being wonderful and logical and having integrity leave angry bitter comments.
        I'm not fooled by thier attitude.
