I've recently been getting loads of emails and forwards from random people be it friends and non-friends with titles such as "Do You have time for God", "Marriage equals a man and a woman" and ive come to think that these certain messages have really started to irritate me and get under my skin. I know that everyone has the things they are passionate about be it religiously or not, but its so annoying when you feel like people are trying to force religion upon you. Its especially regurgitating to read of people speaking of "homosexuals" as not approved by god but in the same sentence hearing them go on about how important it is to be a good christian. Last time i checked being a good christian also meant not to judge people like those in these emails are. So why is it that people feel its neccesary to pressure you into following their religious beliefs? I know it probably reflects somewhat on our own president being kind of a religious lunatic trying to force his beliefs on the country but anyhow im not "especially" religious myself and i dont know what the big deal is. I say religion makes things so much more complicated and i certainly dont try to force that message upon everyone.
I believe forcing any type of opinion on someone else is wrong, let alone religion. I believe all religions are right, even athiesm, and just see another side of the elephant that another religion does.
You know what I notice as well, that we as tennis fans seem are very tolerating to other peoples and religion, especially on this board because tennis players are all unique, relgion and otherwise, and that we as fans relate to the fact that all of them are players who accept each other as well. We ourselves are very different, yet treat each other as equals because it is not the lifestyle or religion that counts, it's the person who does.
I tell people where to go who try and force religion on me, you get so many bible bashers in and around London with clipboards approaching people.....when you tell them you dont have a religion they just wont accept it or respect your views.
Theres a church about 200 yards from me who are always shoving crap through the door...one of the ten commandments should have been LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE !!!!
