Especially since religion and politics are not realms of polite conversation in everyday life, FYM is a convenient surrogate.

Further reason I tend to experience the action from the sidelines, excepting the occasional smart ass remark.

I don't ever venture into FYM for good reasons, but I saw this thread and had to say hi.

I'm a Christian (apparently), and a theology student.

Not every Christian wants to do that

That's another issue in FYM, those sorts of stereotypes/blanket statements. Since some people are bringing up their issues. That's my foul shot.

Im a person, not a piece of bread.

And as such I dont like having things spread on me, butter, words of god or otherwise.

Religion is alright, its just not for me.

Most of us evangelize about stuff that's important to us whether people want to hear it or not. We just call it something else.

Haha, an excuse for your actions?

Some of the replies to this thread sound pretty ethnocentric. I'm South Korean and my ancestors were all Buddhists. Somehow, somewhere my family converted to Christianity.
I noticed that there aren't as many "religion wars" over there. My parents tell me that in comparison to America (the only other nation they've lived in, haha), Korea seems to be much more understanding towards each others faiths.
I'm not singling out other regions around the globe, but I just wanted to point out that maybe we're asking all the wrong questions here. It isn't the existence of God that we should be flustered over, but rather why we can't be accepting and understanding of each other and each others beliefs.



Oh, and yes. I guess your question has been answered, iron horse... there seem to be many Christians here.
