God botherers

I was just walking through my local town centre when I came across the local god squad shouting there views for everyone to hear. I think personally it shouldn't be aloud, I don't believe in god never have never will do. why should I have to listen to them preaching (shouting) it in the middle of a public place they should be asked to stay quiet or arrested for breaching the peace.... go back to church and shout about it there. I'm sure if it was Muslims doing the same in the town i live in they wouldn't be there for long. I asked them why they think it's ok to be trying to force there views on other people, the reply - you don't have to listen - well I havnt got much option seens your shouting it at the top of your voice!

No offence to any believers but in my opinion you've got to be prity naive to think some make believe man exists that can part a river. Believe in yourself and you won't need some fictional character to guide you through life.

I'm not going to go shouting 'don't believe in god it's aloud of sh8t' in the middle of a public place as this is MY view it's upto other people to make there own mind up. It's exactly the same.

What your views on it?

(This is not meant to offend, as the god botherer said - you don't have to listen)

    Theres people forcing their views on people at every turn nowadays, “god botherers” are pretty low on my concern list. However atheists who constantly feel the need to tell us how intelligent they are because they don’t believe in God? Well that’s pretty high on my list TBH.

    Lol not at all, but I know several people who constanly blurt out how religion is a load of pish and how humanity would be better without it.

    They’re everywhere! I got accosted by a dude dressed as a carrot once ! A whole bunch of folk dressed as veg in the high street.

    If only I was militant and willing to waste a bit of meat we could have had a dress up rumble.


    I’m sure my meat could take 2 veg on!

    I have no particular "belief" and, am certainly not religious. I enjoy reading about Hinduism and Buddhism both of which aren't dogmas/religions but philosophies.

    My personal beliefs are nearer to Paganism. But personally it's a free country, they aren't forcing anything on me so I don't really care. I just ignore them when on the odd occasion they are doing their thing and carry on walking/doing my thing.

    So as long as its peaceful (not physically threatening) couldn't care a less.

    haven't got a problem with it myself , if they are feeling like they are doing something good and constructive no matter how asinine then let them get on with it (bit like some vegans)
     
    Jehovah's/bible bashers  knocking on my door I do, but have the same feeling against cold caller or scammers .
     
    Mybe there is a god but im yet to be convinced, when i see some proof ill reassess.

    Ah Doc the Jehovahs are fun, I normally open my door to them covered in tattoos, mohican and invariably wearing a heavy metal t shirt. For some funny reason they never seem to want to talk to me haha. We have some other Christian group come round but I don't have the heart to wind them up due to them being a group of really sweet old people so just take their pamphlet and wish them well.

    As you say as long as they think they are doing some good and go about it in a "pleasant" way I don't really mind.

    The problem arises when people 'think' they have all the answers. It's in those instances the mind is closed to learning anything new. This applies to 'believers' AND 'none believers' alike. Once you think you have all the answers you tend to stop searching. The god squad condemn those who disagree, Hardcore atheists do the exact same. It's equally as nauseating and boring!

    Lol well I couldn't care a less Bigwig they are entitled to their thoughts of superiority as long as they don't "physically" force it on me. As I've got older I've become immune to others narrow views and don't Let it bother me. I'm happy reading, researching and continuing on my own little "journey" of self awareness lol.

    Tbh as long as they are not shouting in people's faces or being too enoying I don't mind, despite my own personal views on the matter.

    I'd rather live in a country where it was legal for people to peacefully spout contrary views, provided they weren't promoting violence, than live in a country where they get arrested for it.

    Lol I wouldn’t want to. I’m sure he’d also have told Hitler to ram it if he was part of his army in the 1930’s. Modern day heroes.

    I would guarantee there are people who may be struggling with whatever, have heard these people and it’s led to them changing their lives. To coin some lefty tw*ts “if it saves just one life”

    I am not religous at all, but I'm of a similar opinion to Dav/doc. They are well within their right to set up a stall and talk peacefully about it to whoever chooses to talk to them. I don't see the need for a megaphone or anything like that though.
     
    Jehovahs can do one, they shouldn't be knocking on people's doors. If I want to find out about their faith I will go and ask them myself.
