Do you view any question that mentions your religion as an attack?

I'm curious how it is that people so frequently completely misunderstand a discussion because they cannot get past the idea that it must have an attack hidden in it somewhere

  • Sometimes I think the way a question is worded may make it sound like an attack when maybe it isn't meant to be one.

  • I generally try to avoid the R & D section. I am strong in my faith, but don't have the Bible memorized. I do notice a lot of bashing on this site of organized religion or of Christianity. But to each her own I suppose. I won't shove my beliefs down someones throat, but I expect the same in return.

  • No, only if it's worded as such. But, even then, the "attack" is on a belief not, an actual person (AKA my self).

  • I don't ever feel personally attacked and I don't think most of the questions here are an attack on beliefs. More asking about the religion and wanting honest answers about stuff they see.

  • My belief system hardly ever comes up here, so no....not at all. Even if it did, I'd explain what I could and blow off the rest
