Is it rude to add a comment to someone else's answer, criticizing their answer? An example is the question is "What things are important...

to know in life?" and he gives a list of 1-5 in which one of those is prayer and I comment and say, "6- Knowing how to keep your comments to yourself and not push your beliefs on others."
Who did the wrong thing? The answerer or the criticizing commenter?

Neither of you necessarily did the wrong thing. I could go on forever about the philosophical belief of right and wrong but not right now. Honestly, you both have full right to express your thoughts and it's a very good way to bring up thought provoking conversation.

People get tired of hearing other people's religions. It gets old.

I guess it's not wrong to comment on someone else answer because that's what "comment" is all about--it's a feedback/reaction either positive or negative...

In this scenario I think you are wrong on criticizing his five things he values. His answer was what is important to him.

I agree with Janadu on this one. You were wrong commenting on an item in his list. It's like asking with strings attached which defeats the purpose of the question..
