  • Because they haven't been taught/prepared to open their minds to other views and lifestyles.

  • I dont get angry and I have truly not seen anyone else get angry. But I would assume that they are trying to get their point across and they come across as if they are angry about it. Dont know.

  • Just like politics,Religion,and politics are two things imo,that people have very strong opinions about,and once they get something in their head,they feel when confronted,that you are trying to change their minds or say they are wrong.

  • I think some of them want to "save" you from "burning in hell". They want to show you and tell you what you are doing wrong and should be doing. They mean well most of the time, they just really really believe in the bible. They don't understand why we DON'T believe in the bible, the same way WE don't understand how they CAN. The only ones that bother me are the ones who preach to you, but are the opposite of what THEY preach!

  • Because people are afraid of what they don't understand and people often react to their fear by getting angry.

  • Firelass. I could say the same of pagans or witches or buddists who refuse to open their minds to my Christian beliefs. They close their minds to me.

    I have been taught to THINK for myslef and this is what I choose. With this choice comes some factual TRUTHS of rights and wrongs and that means that YES> some people are doing things that I will NEVER agree with. sorry.

  • Because its people like you that don't just want a good debate- but absolutely obviously hate the bible and people who believe in it and want to shove what YOU think down their throats. Your way or the high way. I saw your "inmorral" question. LOL

  • ANON, IF THERE ARE NO OPPOSING VIEWS THERE IS NO DEBATE, OR IS A GOOD DEBATE ONE SIDED??? I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE SHOVING THEIR BELEIVES DOWN MY THROAT, WHY WOULD I DO THE SAME? I SIMPLY ASKED A GOOD QUESTION AND WANTED A REASONABLE ANSWER. I OFTEN FEEL LIKE ITS MY MOTHER TELLING ME AS A CHILD "BECAUSE I SAY SO"!
