I live in a town where many of these people frequently stand on hours on end trying to force they're beliefs on people trying to use public transport (trains/buses massive station) and people walking by trying to mind they're own business.

I get that people are allowed to believe in whatever they want, however I do not condone them trying to thrust/hassle people into believing them and converting them people have the right to make their own decisions in their own time.

They frequently hassle me and it is both catholic and christians so what arguments could I make to p**s them off or just to give up entirely? for either side

Thanks in advance

and sorry mods didnt know where to post this.

Edit: Sorry I ment I wanted to mass debate them (pun intented) so their stupid jaws drop and walk away

You can't. Faith is faith.

Any proof or conjecture you use to try to discredit it will be dismissed. That's just how they are.

Edit: If you really want to try, this site has a piece about the immorality of Jesus (and some other fun arguments):

Way back in 1997 I went to an Ozzfest concert which included Marilyn Manson. The show had been moved to Minneapolis from a nearby Wisconsin venue because people didn't want Manson to play. There were people out front of the show handing out pamphlets and saying, "Jesus loves you."

I said, "and Jesus loves each and every one of the band members putting on a kick-a$$ show for us tonight."

I didn't get a response.

You cannot do anything, just ignore them, that is the best way.
Else tell them you already believe what they believe, but you don't have time to talk.

you can't stop their solicting of their religion so we all just have to deal with it. I swear some are becoming like the military lol im waiting for some to start offering sign up bonus's and a college education. to fight the war on disbelief.

Street preachers are like the energizer bunny ... keep going and going and ...

...what arguments could I make to p**s them off or just to give up entirely?

Do you want to debate them, or do you want them to shut up? Two different concepts. Debate may be interesting (or entertaining) but don't go into thinking you will change anything or make them give up. You won't. They wouldn't be very good street preachers if they were to do that, now would they?

I am a Disciple of Christ...

I can't stand it when " Bible Thumping Preachers" scream at people to join their religion

I have always had a HUGE problem with this which is why I do not call myself a christian even though I follow Jesus.,. I just don't think god would be happy with someone screaming at you that u are going to hell if you don't convert

True Followers of Jesus .... Follow Him ... and Jesus taught Love and acceptance of everyone..

If I ever saw someone falling I would reach out to you.. but with a gentle hand and never squeeze..

Be safe and god bless

The answer to them is "I will never join a religion that tries to convert people on the streets. Please go verbally assault someone else"

I've used it before and most of the time you get a pause during which you can leave.

Although I've been told that I"m going to H****. To which I reply "Bless you"

Tell them you're too busy to listen their drivel, you have a goat to buy for tonight sacrifice to your lord and master Satan...go on to tell them that you're having a jumble sale to raise money to build a church in town in his honour and would they care to donate?

If they won't listen to your religious beliefs, why should you be expected to listen to theirs?

Typically, I just ignore them, to each their own.

But when they have the audacity to approach and tell me I need saving or whatever else, I just tell them to piss off.

They usually turn around and run when they feel confrontation coming on which I am willing to oblige if they do not get out of my face.

Be like the one they claim to follow. Be compassionate and understanding towards them, contemplative about your own role in whatever "encounter" you have with them, and be true to yourself. But only if you really want to... otherwise debate till you no longer want to debate!

I saw this posted somewhere a couple of years ago and saved it thinking it was rather humorous hope you like it too

Source is no longer known

1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, the Bible tells me it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev.1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them in the least. Should I smite them?

2. One of my friends would like to sell his daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She’s a Yale graduate, speaks fluent French and is very computer literate. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. Leviticus 25:44-46 clearly states that we may indeed possess slaves, both male and female (and we can even leave them to the kids in our Wills … in perpetuity). However, they have to be purchased from neighboring nations. A good Christian friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. I would much prefer owning a Canuck. So why can’t I own Canadians? Can you clarify, please?

4. I know that I am forbidden to have any contact whatsoever with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – even to sitting on a chair where she had previously sat (Lev.15:19-24). The problem at the office is, how is one supposed to know these things? It seems like merely asking causes them to take great offense.

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should this be a neighborhood activity?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality (s.v., your earlier Leviticus citing). Me? I’m not so sure of that. Is being gay or a crustacean cruncher-muncher worse?

7. Leviticus 21:18-21 has numerous restrictions about who exactly can approach the altar to worship God, but I’m focusing on the one concerning if I have a defect in my eye. I have to admit that I wear glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

8. Most of the guys I know shave on a daily basis, get their hair trimmed regularly and some even have tattoos – although these are all expressly forbidden (Lev. 19:27-28). How should they die?

9. I know from Leviticus 11:7-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes a man unclean. So exactly what kind of brutal Biblical punishment do you think the NCAA and NFL should be meting out to all those big, burly football players? (And is wearing gloves, like some receivers and backs do, a possible loophole?)

10. My uncle has a farm. Year in and year out, he violates Leviticus 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field; as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (she really likes that all-season linen and wool blend). Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them (Lev. 24:14)? Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family gathering like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

11. Big stones or little stones? I live in a neighborhood with LOTS and LOTS of stubborn and rebellious male adolescents. Although Deuteronomy 21:18-22 is perfectly clear they should be stoned to death, my question are pebbles or boulders the accepted mode?

Jesus taught us to LOVE the sinner.... despite of the SIN,...

I just feel it none of our Place ( as humans) to judge each other because only god can do that.... so we should just accept everyone ...

Gay people don't bother me one bit ... I would shake hands even hug someone of that orientation...

It's just not my place to tell someone what they should do in their bedroom..

God Bless

Just ask them what the 10 commandments are 99 times out of 100 they won't know them all.

posted on Oct, 5 2011 @ 03:20 PM
tell them you are jesus, that you have come back, and that they must at all costs leave you alone otherwise they will give you away and mess up the divine plan. then ask them for a small donation to help the cause.
