I have to say,... I didn't experience that while I lived in Sweden at all. Even felt less of that than I do up here, and up here all I get is leaflets on the street.
Well, it doesn't happen to me often, partially because I don't seem to be too attractive to any religious ppl.. and well, christans don't stroll around town trying to convert ppl.. XD.. just the ones I HAVE encountered (some online, I admit) have acted that way.

When and where did you live here? ^^
Linköping and Gothenburg, 2003-2007
four years and most the christians I met were the normal not-so-active kind.
I'm a buglight to people I'd rather avoid, what can I say?

Most just blessed me and said they'd pray for me, even tho I said "No, I'd rather you didn't do that".. about 50% have tried to convince me that christianity is the deal for me.

Don't worry, in the states, there's plenty of Christians eager to convert you. At least they're not terribly persistent unless they know you personally.

I always got confused what to do with all the Bibles that the Methodists would give out when they swarmed the campus once a year. I had no use for them, yet throwing out a book someone considers to be holy (despite my lack of sharing that belief) seemed to be wrong to me. Could always go with good old fashion book burning though <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> jk.
The one thing that's been bugging me recently about Christianity is the Commandment: Thou shalt not kill. After a COMMANDMENT- from God himself, apparantly- like that, you'd think that there'd be a bit less blood behind the path of Christianic growth in the world.
Way back when they rationalized it by saying you just shouldn't kill fellow Catholics (had to get the idoets in on the holy wars somehow) thus the heathens, in their books, then became free game.
Also, I think way back when, the commandment was "Thou Shalt not MURDER".

I have no source, just remember hearing that somewhere. So, basically, killing in war was exempt, cause it wasn't murder.
Or, if your killing in the name of the god, or because they are heathens and not really "alive", or well you get the idea.
Just because you can rationalize it, doesn't mean that it makes any kind of real sense.
