I'm pretty sure missionaries are supposed to be nice. Who would want to listen to a mean person talk about religion? Then again, I've never met a missionary who wasn't weird, but I guess it's because they're so ensconced in their beliefs they just come off as a tad fanatical.

As an atheist, I've never tried to convince someone they're wrong in their beliefs. I'm not like that. But sometimes when I hear stupid things a religious figure has done, or something else that casts a negative light on a religion, I get a slight urge to be one of those assertive atheists. Good thing I'm lazy!

I agree with Ahmet and Mage on this one. I've met plenty of people that have tried to convert me to their belief system: Christians, Hindus, Atheists, Republicans, Socialists, Environmentalists, and Libertarians are the ones I can think of specific examples for off the top of my head. Of this bunch, I think without exception, the actual missionaries - the people that actively go out to bring their religion to the world, as opposed to people that just evangelize at you when the opportunity presents itself - have always been the nicest to deal with. They'll tell you about how happy what they believe makes them, they'll ask you what you believe and why, and try to challenge you to think about things in a different light. But they won't threaten you with eternal hellfire, or accuse you of leading civilization to ruin, or even try to tell you outright that what you believe is wrong. And if you tell them you're done talking, they'll drop the subject. I figure it's a catch-more-flies-with-honey situation, and these are the people that have put in the effort to learn to be diplomatic. I think we could stand to learn a lot from their example, if we were a little less preoccupied with disagreeing with them.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Personally I think you get crazy people from all walks of life. What's important is to not make the mistake of believing that an unfortunate few represent their entire faith. I know there's lots of Christians out there that make me embarrassed to admit sometimes that I am too, probably much more than their should be, but not every Christian is a creationist who uses Christianity as an excuse to be bigoted just as not every Muslim is a terrorist and not every atheist is anti-religion. I'm good so long as that distinction is made.

I'm actually pretty lucky with Mormons. My cousin is one and I guess they have this rule where they're not allowed to convert families of other Mormons. I do have problems with Jehovah's Witnesses trying to convert me every once in a while though.

It's nice to be back, although you do talk a lot and it takes a long time to read all the threads.

My computer was down for a day or two once and I just said "fuck it, I'm not reading all 5 new pages of 'inane drivel' today."

I won't be offended if you don't read everything in New Outlandia.* Although an apology would be nice.

Dear Lord Retard,

While I was dismayed to read your letter, I do commend your concise and rapid reply to the concern I raised. Your implication that the forum I police is in some way lacking in quality is not unfounded, however it is hardly sporting to use that against me when there are so many issues to tackle.

Your second point, I found trite and condescending, mainly due to the imperative used, but also because of the unnecessary capitalisation. Vulgar in both thought and execution is a phrase that describes that sentence (If I can call it a sentence) and to a far greater extent your good self.

Yours sincerely,

Cirtur

ps. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for tenpin bowling.
