I made it clear I was assuming. feel free to correct me. however, if you don't want people to make assumptions perhaps you should have elaborated, maybe made an example. you forced me to assume as you didn't give any information about what your talking about.

I see no other reason why someone would be made uncomfortable by Jesus as opposed to other religious figures, especially here in the states where Christianity is the default. the only logical conclusion is that it's not Jesus making people uncomfortable but the person talking about Jesus. the reason you were singled out is because you made the post.

you also did nothing to counter the assumption so I'm guessing I hit the nail on the head.

So you assume I just push Jesus in people's faces? Seems a bit judgemental to say that about someone you don't really know.

I said that because I wanted to

why did you say Jesus vs other religions and not Christianity vs other religions or Jesus vs other prophets?

it sounds to me that you, as a biased party, talk about other religions as a normal thing, but when mentioning Christ you may become pushy and preachy, which turns people off.

It may not be the mention of Christ that makes people uncomfortable but the fact that they are facing a pushy, preachy, self righteous person that won't stop when asked to. why don't you try approaching people and talk about Muhammad the way you talk about Christ and people will be equally uncomfortable with your unsolicited and pushy islamic opinion.

sometimes the uncomfort comes not from the message but from the messenger.

Depends on how/when you do it.

Here, fire away. This is a debate app so anyone who doesn't expect to be challenged doesn't know much about debating.

Your friends, it depends. There's nothing wrong with discussing religion, but you also don't want to alienate them and lose friends because you tell them they are going to Hell everyday.

Strangers on the street, leave them alone. If you see someone on the street in the hijab, or with a turbin, confronting them to tell them their religion is wrong is unacceptable. Just like it would be if someone harassed a person wearing a cross.

Is it wrong to challenge someone's way of living?

Dont comment on any religion. Let people follow their faiths. Why to interfere?
