Why do people feel the need to shove their beliefs down my throat?

I mean I will stand there and just disagree with people when it comes to religion but it's not like I'm gonna stand on the street corner and shove it down your damn throat while you try to shop for shoes. I wish those religious freaks would stay the f outta my face!

  • I agree!
    I was shopping at K-mart for some school supplies and a complete stranger came up and started talking about me needing to go to her church. I politely said no thanks and she kept at it. Then she asked my 5 year old what church we went to and looked like she was about to have a heart attack when my kid said "we don't. We play on church days"
    She actually wrote her number and address down, gave it to my daughter, and told me to drop her off and she'd take her to church. Like I would really give my kid to a perfect stranger to have that shit shoved down her throat!

  • I have never understood that myself..guess some just feel the need to advertise in an extremely annoying and intrusive manner. So sad!

  • A lot of people feel the same way about the issues they disagree with being shoved down their throats & forced on them.

  • I'm right there with you.

    I just do not understand.. Wait know that isn't true. Let me rephrase that. I understand, but I do not like, that some religious people do not want to accept that not everyone believes the same as they do, and therefore we do not all live by their same religious ideology, religious rules, religious based moral compass...etc..etc.... Those people, make life so much less pleasant for the rest of us at times. And for some reason choose to make their lives more difficult, I mean, it can't be fun running around constantly bickering or fighting trying to get people to believe and live like you do. I would think that would really suck most of the time.
