    "People of God" If only certain "Christians" could realize that includes everyone! I'm sorry, but I can tend to get a little hostile when "People of God" try to cram their religion down my throat one time too many. I do respect their right to believe as they choose, but: I'D LIKE...

    Loathe? Nah.

    I don't loathe anyone for their religion.  Do they make me sad sometimes? Maybe Do I find them frustrating and disagreeable?  Definitely.

    I am all for people believing in whatever they want as long as it doesn't harm anyone else.  However, there are way too many people who believe in something but don't know why other than they were told to.  These are the people I can't deal with.  I grew up with...

    They're just being too extreme. Too obssesed and with this they can no longer see what's going on around them. The belief they profess is no longer being reasonable. And because of all this negatives, I see their beliefs as lies.
