    Do you know that person she is talking about? No one tactic works in every situation.

    Proselytizing means telling people about the Good News of Jesus, but it often (always?) comes with a both carrot and stick. Don't Christians regularly say "If you don't accept Jesus in your heart, you are an enemy of God and you're going to hell"?

    Is that bullying?
    I have never had a Christian tell me that in my life and I have been in church off and on my entire life. Many denominations and churches. No, I am pretty sure they don't "regularly" say things like that. This is absurd.

    Actually you would be wrong. Christians in my family said it OBSESSIVELY but usually cut to the chase with a "you're going to hell" thrown in about every other sentence.

    Laughing at religious nuts always works.

    I don't think so. Kids talk about all kinds of stuff, while in school, on the playground, on the school bus, etc.

    Oh, my first wife told me almost every day to "go to hell" and she wasn't even a Christian. I just laughed and told her once again to get me a beer.
