"I hope you find god."

--But not okay for me to say, "I hope you lose god."

"I'll pray for your soul."

--But not for me to say, "Take your prayers and stuff 'em."

"Islam is a violent religion."

--But not for me to say, "What about the inquisition, the crusades, the witch trials?"

Personally I don't care what anyone has to say about my or other religions. I don't live my life questioning every one's beliefs, or asking who can or can't ask something. By the way I don't know who told you that you can't say those things, as an adult you can say whatever you want.

 Well, it's technically ok for anyone to say those things since there's freedom of speech and all, but I get what you're saying. Those things that are said by Christians as a way to antagonize someone else should not be done, IMO.

I've been reprimanded for both of the top two. Had my reply deleted AND got a spanking.

I am a muslim, its not only christians who say we adhere to a VIOLENT religion...just idiots. They fail to know that every chapter of the Quran starts with "In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the MERCIFUL"...

So its not christians all the time, just idiots and morons. And the "Ill pray for you" and so on they should keep it to themselves, its not right to make people feel uncomfortable. Thanks for defending us though :D

Really? Here's the intent: I'm right and you're wrong. I pray you'll see things my way.

Why isn't it okay if I say the exact same thing?

It's really not ok, but because they are wishing for an improvement in your life and you are wishing a  downfall it is mean spirited on your behalf

"I'll pray for your soul."

--But not for me to say, "Take your prayers and stuff 'em."

because that is just rude

"Islam is a violent religion."

--But not for me to say, "What about the inquisition, the crusades, the witch trials?"

those are both prefectly fine for debate
