I believe in God, and I don´t don´t bash other people. I have some people do that, and I don´t support it. But if you ask my why, I´d just say it´s might be because it frustrates them to hear that someone does not believ in God. I don´t judge though
It's the other way around anything that comes up with god in it is not allowed in public places so why should we give up our rights because you don't believe were not forcing god on anyone but it's our duty to speak the truthbut not at any one person but to anyone that wants to hear it it there choice it's called free will god wishes no one parish he loves everyone
Because some people are close-minded and a little insecure. They feel that the way they think is the way everyone should think, even if they dont have any evidence to support their beliefs. So rather than have a discussion about your beliefs, they bash you and try to make you feel stupid so that the focus is off of themselves and their lack of any evidence supporting their beliefs

In my experience few believers actually attack non-believers. They may pity us, feel superior to us, feel holier than us, or patronise us but then, we tend to feel most of those things about them, too.
Do understand that when a person places a life bet -- that is, they bet their whole lifestyle on believing that there's an invisible friend/creator out there who loves them -- it costs them big time.
Depending on which particular group they join certain normal practgices are taboo. So some abstain from sex, some from alcohol, some from blood transfusions, and so on, according to their own particular sect. ALL of them are placed in a position where their church makes demands on their money. "The tithe is the Lord's," they are told. It's like a second form of taxation imposed by absentee bailiffs -- something like the "No taxation without representation" that led to the Boston Tea Party.
If they make a commitment of that magnitude it's only reasonable to suppose that they will defend their position strongly, even fiercely and, if slagging me is how a few of them justify their decision, I don't mind. Just don't try to convert me.
Because they were raised like that, I guess. I mean, kids are raised to mock or bash whatever doesn't agree with them. Like the entire idea that evolution says we came from monkeys. It doesn't; it says we have a common ancestor with them. I guess it's a religious mechanism or something.
