Why is it assumed that when a Christian posts their answer in the ANSWERS section (under R&B), that they're automatically preaching or out "trying to win souls"?
I understand there are a handful that in fact DO behave this way...I'm not talking about them. I am debateful and I ask questions, but I'm very rarely ever rude or pushy to anyone.
When you post a question in the R&B section, don't you expect people from ALL faiths (or non-faith) to answer?

I can think of one thing that I am very INTOLERANT of ... the 940 characters we are limited to with our answers!!! *grrrrrrr*
Anyway, like someone else pointed out, you can't see the emotions behind the words on the screen. I tend to get very passionate about certain subjects when talking about them in real life. I don't think that translate well on screen and can come across as intolerance or even arrogance.

What I CAN'T tolerate are the religious people who talk in circles, spewing cookie- cutter answers they've been taught (but don't really understand) and in the process answer nothing but expect you to totally agree with them and then get pissed when you don't. Think for yourself, educate yourself and don't expect everyone to agree with you- and that goes for EVERYONE.

Yes--if it's a general question. If someone posts a question directed soley to Christians, or to Pagans, etc..I think those are the only ones who should answer the question. JMO [popzaroo]
What about those that are FORMER Christians or Pagans? Are they "allowed" to answer? Your comment is really an example of intolerance.

Because there is prejudice in the world. People have had bad experiences and they allow that to color their views/opinions. There are always going to be nutcases/extremists on either side of any debate.
