I lost it

I am a man with multiple health issues that are very painful. I was hurting, tired, feeling ill and some woman decided to preach at me even though I asked her to stop. She got right in my face telling me I was going to hell and deserved it. Today was NOT the day to even consider that. I called her a hypocrite and asked if she had ever worked with dying people, I have, I asked her if she had tried helping homeless people, I have. I asked her if she had spent time with elderly shut ins who just needed someone to talk to. She said No to all of those, I lost it and said who in hell did she think she was telling strangers they were going to hell. I finally said I am not going to Hell I am in it now listening to her bullshit. I hate losing it but enough is enough. Keep your damn religious views to yourself and stop trying to push it on everyone. You chose your faith let me choose mine. And if it differs from yours, shut up, its none of your business! And leave people who are in pain alone.

Look I'm Christian but never in a million years would I want to push my beliefs on anyone.

That said I'm still a sinner, unlike some of these self-righteous assholes who get off on judging others, like the women you're talking about.

The trouble is the world is full of wackos. Unfortunately many of them rise in our declining civilization to heights once thought unimaginable.

Don't let any these ignoramuses get you down. They're all stupid people. I just simply cut them off by saying, "I'm not interested, don't bother me." You did the right thing standing your ground and telling that person to back off. Sounds like some bored nimrod with time on her hands. Nothing better to do but pass judgement on a perfect stranger whom she doesn't even know. People like that really need to get a life.

"There is, of course, unlimited freedom of conscience here as in England. Everybody, whether he has been ordained in the Church or not, is at liberty so far as the lay Courts are concerned, to preach what he likes, and where he likes (within certain limits of public decency) (Judge Begbie, BISHOP OF BRITISH COLUMBIA v. CRIDGE, October 24, 1874)

So, I think telling you that you are going to hell is OK. I don't think people choose their faiths; God elects them to his service!

You have to loose it on those types sometimes when they push.
They just don't understand that no GOD is going to save anyone. They have nothing better to do and don't understand the pain and suffering. I feel for you OP, as you know, you are not alone.

Same with people who believe in Karma. They think everything bad that happens to you is because you were a bad person... in another life!!! That's how far victim blaming/shaming can go. Karma was used to justify the caste system in India. Anybody who believes in karma is as crazy as anyone who believes in religion.

The philosophy that no one religion is the truth, but that elements of the truth is found in all religions ................ and if they are bible thumping on you, suggest ask them to read Corintheans 13:12 "you all see dimly thru a clouded lens..." .......... so if anyone says they know it all and their way is the only way, they are, like Einstein said: "people who have a problem for every solution."
