Ever wanted a simple answer, and got preached at instead?

Now don't get me wrong. I am a christian through and through. But sometimes a simple answer will do. I just checked out a question on here where someone asked for a simple list of things you would like to do before you die. And the response is from somebody Preaching about how they need to find Jesus as their lord and savior, and that's fine, but the response keeps going on and on and on. I didn't read it all, because I got tired of scrolling down. I know when I lost my first child, many gave words of grief, but I will never forget the long conversation from one of my friends mother, who gave me an hour long speech about what's meant to be and how I need to accept jesus as my savior, and forgive and forget. I was more shook up after all her preaching I wanted to lock myself in a closet and never come out.

The unfortunate problem when contributing to a public forum is that many will take it upon themselves to interpret your question as they see fit. In this case, your question unceremoniously attracted an individual who feel it is his calling to unobtrusively force his beliefs upon others. The individual is likely roaming about the website looking for others to which he can put forth his religious views and do a little "soul-saving". I'm going to end this here before it begins to take on too many qualities of preachyness.
