Why do some Christians have such an issue with the fact that there are others who don't want to be "saved"? I know some will say it's because they care, but where does respect play into this? Perhaps my religion is as bit real to me as yours is to you. Is it fair to belittle my faith because it does not involve a father-like deity? And by saying "yeah, but your faith is wrong and if you don't give you life to Jesus your going to hell, but I only want to help" not disrespecting my faith. I respect that you believe, why can't you respect that I don't believe the same as you do, and I came upon my faith honestly.

Anonymous, maybe you're missing the point just a little. I think the OP was talking more about people who come across as judgmental or rude. For a person to talk to others about their beliefs is one thing, but for that person to persistently do so without invitation or to come across in an aggressive way toward those who politely refuse to talk about it, is considered badgering.
Even though I practice a Pagan spirituality I've always been interested in learning about other faiths and even enjoy having a friendly, debate/discussion about various spiritual beliefs. I firmly believe that we all should have the freedom to follow whichever spiritual path truly resonates with us. But if someone crosses the line and becomes judgemental toward my beliefs or demeans me because of my beliefs I have to firmly, but respectfully draw the line.
