They're annoying but it's kind of fun to mess with their heads some times.4

I usually say, "I'll make you a deal...You come to Mass with me this Sunday and I'll go with you to your services next Sunday/Saturday." No takers so far.3

"Been saved. . .thanks anyway!"2

I love the ones that think I'm not saved unless I'm saved their way.3

(In the case of Jehovah's Witnesses-I'd make this a 2-or I'd encourage Jews to go into 'Jehovah's Witnesses'neighborhoods and convert them to The Purple Gang...whoops Judaism)...My big drinking day is with my homey's after our Sabbath services on Saturday morning...and I think that-let's face it-with Jews-the issue is Jesus..not everything else that people can be "converted to"-so I would encourage these Jews to go to synagogue
more often and have a few tequilla's after services...The vast majority of Americans are at least nominally Christian-and for the sake of The US-America needs more Christianity-not less.

I don't mind someone attempting this if they're friendly and reasonable about it. Where I draw the line is if someone is insulting, condescending, overly tenacious, or patronizing.6

If someone were to dog me through a mall or airport preaching wildly that I was doomed if I didn't accept whatever they were ranting about then yes, I would have to say I'd be annoyed. But I've never been that bugged by the occasional well meaning person who would happen to come my way with a different spiritual point of view. It's just another topic of conversation - or not. You can listen, whine and wimper about being put upon, change the conversation or walk away. It's up to you.5

UPDATE: I agree you should not fight and argue about faith or religion in fact the Bible warns us not to do this for the sake of the hearers.

"Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen." 2 Timothy 2:14 (New International Version)

ORIGINAL COMMENT: As Christians we have a responsibility to tell others about Christ, and to teach what he has commanded. This is not an option but a command or a commission (The Great Commission) from God.

No one likes for others to try to change them, I don't. One day long ago I learned about what the Lord Jesus did for me and I accepted him as my savior.

There are a lot of religions out there and a lot of "gods" that people worship. You will have to decide what is right. The Holy Spirit will guide you. I do not like religion, it is over rated. I have a relationship with my Savior and know in my heart and soul it is real and true.

"Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:16-20 (New International Version)

It annoys me, but more power to them if they think they may actually succeed in converting someone. I think these people need to find something more productive to do with the amount of time they all seem to have.5

Nothing worse. But remember the old saying The best defense is a good Offensive. Now, whenever I am accosted by a religious nut, especially the over-zealous Jehovah's Witness, I counter there attack with a well thought out and informed recitation as to why I am a devout and loyal Loudmouthed Atheist, including several reasons why god couldn't possibly exsist, and why they're particular brand of the judeo-christian myth sucks stale monkeywater. Most just tend to walk away, looking for an easier mark to harrass. But the important thing to remember is, they have to attack first. If they don't, you stand the risk of becoming just as annoying as they are. 5

Doesn't bother me much at all for a number of reasons. I'm too old, too stubborn, and too convinced to even think about changing my religion (some would say I'm too close-minded, and maybe I am about that particular aspect of my life). Second, I'll credit anyone who tries to proseletize for their religion with being enough of a believer to try to sway others. Third, everyone is entitled to their own opionion about religion, even if it be that they don't believe in religion. Short version: they can try, but they are wasting their time on me. 1

This must have happened to me at least 20 times when living in NC. It was Charlotte, but still, techinically the bible belt. The southern baptists always went through the predominately northern, and subsequentialy Catholic neighborhoods, to convert us all into baptists. It was very annoying. We also had Jahovah's Witness come a few times. They would talk to me like i was a moron, do you know about Jesus Christ? I mean, come on people. They think Catholics are athiest or something, very bizarre.1

This is pretty annoying.Even when they have their heart in the right place,they have decided that YOUR spiritual intuition is inferior to theirs.The more smug and self -righteous they are,the worse it is.I love to talk theology with folks who are open-minded and respectful of other peoples paths,but those with narrow minds and supercilious attitudes I can do without.4
StanUzbeck (14)
I'm always super polite to these people, but you have to cut them off early. The thing I totally hate is that the whole idea of no religion is foreign to them. They believe that even if your faith is different from theirs, you at least must have one. Nope, sorry. No faith. I'm glad I live in an area where nobody cares if you're an atheist. In fact, probably half the people in my area are atheists or pagans. Are we Godless? I hope so. The next time some Mormons or JW's come to your door to tell you the good news, listen to them, but then slowly stick your hand down the front of your pants and then smell your fingers. Do this over and over again. They won't say anything about it, believe me. When you've had your fun, tell them to piss off and close the door.5

I don't get this much, and when I do I usually start doing the stations of the cross. That normally has them running, although considering how lapsed a Catholic I am, it's probably got me another few millenia in Purgatory.4

I shouldn't complain about this too much considering that the general goal of most religions is to convert as many people as possible.3

Religion isn't meant to be shoved down peoples' throats. My borther-in-law was always on my wife's back about finding a church and it frankly was none of his damn business. We did find a church because we wanted to not because anyone else wanted us to. As I've said in other posts, I am religious but I'm not about to approach you on the subject unless you specifically ask me.3

These peopel make me sick its like a drunk guy how wont take no for a answer.2
Mad Hatter (36)
My grandfather, a Southern Baptist preacher, had a few knock on his door and try to convert him. Instead, he converted them. TO SCARLETFEATER: I would have to agree. Anytime I talk to my grandfather, he always asks if I am going to church on Sundays. It is very annoying.3
Solenoid DH (21)
I don't like religion either. It bores me, and always has. Some pushy religious people even offend me. But I would encourage you to seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (who, if you look at the New Testament carefully, was no fan of empty religion either). Don't try to get religion...yuck!4
