I saw an incident today where people from a certain religon were waiting on people to come out of the grocery store to talk to them about religon. They were a lil too pushy and got a man angry and then it ended up in a cursing disagreement. What are your opinions on this? Do you feel its appropriate for them to approach people and if they do and get rejected, should they mark remarks or say things that insight arguing?Do you feel the stores should not allow this?

Well they are free to do what the do since it is their life and no one is committing a crime but if it comes to the point of harassing someone or they just won't take no for an answer then I don't agree to what they are doing. I like people who profess their faith with such passion. but I still don't like anyone coming to my face and says that I join them or I'll rot in hell. Here in the Philippines people similar to those that you mentioned exist and they visit your house instead of waiting for you near the grocery. I had this incident once that I thought of hearing them out, they gave me this speech and even gave me fliers and told me by the same time next week they'll come back and see how I react. Its been more than half a year now and I still haven't heard from them.

They once were calling my house. I got alot of calls even after asking them to remove me from their calling list. I also had them come to the door quite alot. I think that they do go overboard but thats just my experience IN MY LIFETIME.

Even so I guess you can't really blame them though. They just really believe in what they believe in, and for them their's is salvation. Next time they come up to me I may give them another chance, but when they start calling and stuff maybe its a little overboard.

I have never been approached in a parking lot or supermarket thank heavens, they door come to my door at times which i think should be illegal, I just tell them politely that I am not interested then if they don't take that then I get a little direct in my approach..

I was shocked to see that man get angry enough to curse. I cant repeat what he said here but it was really bad. I dont think I would let them get me that angry but then I dont know how much he was pushed either or exactly what was said.
