I too hate the preachy types. There is a word for those types too, and for years I have been aunable to remember it...grr

I generally do not tollerate them, in my neck of the woods the rebel in me just wants to hang them by their feet until the stupidity drains from them.
I am of course talking about those that, are NOT IN ANY WAY SPIRITUAL. And spew nothing but judgements and negativity to all things not THEIR way from a megaphone all day

As much as it sickens me, I actually kinda of pity them. What in their life is working out so badly they need to re-assure themselves for six-eight hours a day that someone (God) loves them?

But alas, You cannot teach those with a full cup of coffee the benefits of water.

Excellent post.

In all honesty, most of us probably would have held those very same beliefs (Orthodox teaching) ourselves at one stage in our lives!

I think the wisest things you can do with such people, or anyone, is put down a moral marker and to live by example.
That helps people find a higher truth through their own reasoning.
All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

Its weird when someone suddenly turns religious and everything you try to talk about they just turn it into preachy stuff. It feels like theyre trying to seem superior

Don't talk about religion, would be my advice.
