I research religion. I post questions I find that intrique me. I may not like your answer and so I ask another one. Why is that so wrong? Why does it make some of you so bitter and angry when I find information to make you THINK about why you believe the way you do?
It seems as soon as I ask something a person cannot answer or I don't find their response acceptable as an answer, I'm accused of 'baiting'? I am not a sugar-coater nor a huggy bear; I am direct and to the point- which is obviously mistaken as being rude.
Why is it okay for Christians to attack my lack of beliefs, but as soon as I dare post something contrary to what they have faith in, I'm bum-rushed for it? I'm not allowed to bring to attention things in your faith that don't make sense to me? I'm not supposed to have any comments about your religion because I no longer belong to it?
I NEVER have this problem with Pagans, Wiccans or Satanists...

I think some of it is because many Christians are taught that questioning their beliefs or having others question them is wrong.
I also think it is because with Christian teaching comes a certain level of arrogance. Meaning that they are taught they are the only one true religion....everyone is wrong but them, they are the chosen ones, etc. I cannot name one non-monotheistic belief that teaches that type of arrogance.
I also think some become uncomfortable with not having all the answers and some even feel guilty because the questions you and others raise cause their own mind to wonder and question.
It is sad that some are taught educating ones self is a bad thing.
