ATHEISTS/NON-BIBLE BELIEVERS: DO YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT EVERYONE SHOULD OBEY THE BIBLE?
I don't feel uncomfortable, just a sense of utter amazement that people feel that way about a work of fiction.
If they are saying that, theya re the ones who obviously are feeling uncomfortable and uneasy. I respond with silence so as not to hurt their already sensitive feelings.
I have to fight the reflex to roll my eyes.
I look on them with pity, athiests know the truth while religious people delude themselves.
The shame of the thing is, that no matter how much evidence is presented, those who believe in a diety, reject it, and carry on with their delusion.
I don't feel uncomfortable, I feel sad that people like that still exist.
As a member of the faithful.....
I feel uncomfortable when anyone says that because they usually also mean that everyone should follow THEIR particular interpretation of the bible.
Can't say as I view myself as a 'Bible believer,' although I think the New testament has some good things in it.
Yes, I do feel uncomfortable ... not because any one person is telling me this, but because a significantly large group of people is trying to legislate this.
Yeah I do feel uncomfortable when a person tries to force their beliefs on me.The Jehova Witnesses are the worst because they come to your house and ask you if your a believer.Why can't people just keep their religion to themselves?
So.. when Jehovah's Humbugs next come to your house and ask their questions,
find the balls to say outright that you don't adhere to the commonly held beliefs.
I once had open and frank discussion with them,
and was surpised at the frankness they could come back with.
I asked outright if they were allowed to countenance and religious concepts OUTSIDE the covers of their Bibles, and they quickly said an emphatic NO.
I also asked if there was life on any other planet?
it was an interesting discussion,
Go ahead and buy the WatchTower and Awake magazines.
They line birdcages just right.
^ Yeah aplmac I tell they that I'm not interested but they just keep coming back every Sunday.Now I look through the peep hole before I open the door on Sundays.
just because people who'd say that probably don't know some of the sick stuff the bible says :p
Voted : It depends
It depends if they are implying either:
A) One should choose to obey the Bible.
B) One should be forced to obey the Bible.
- I am comfortable with A), and I am uncomfortable with B)
Voted : I ignore them.
That really pisses them off
