Beats me. Probably are trying to persuade people to join their religion. Also maybe cause the question has something to do with their religion. It's really annoying though. People shouldn't force their religion on others so stop trying people.
Some lack the ability to think independently. Some believe it is sinful to. There are actually quite a few who do say what they personally think based on their religious beliefs but they are tactful and respectful of those who may not share those same values. Many people agree with them. They just don't tend to be judgmental or try to pretend that their way is the only way.
Well I believe in my religion very much and part of that believe is that God gave us free will and regardless if someone doesn't have the same beliefs as u do or religion and or belief in God everyone still has that free will whether or not you believe in God or not so anyone is allowed to speak their mind and what I have been thought and raised in inside my own home and in my religion is to be a friendly neighbor to everyone even if you may have differences between each other so if someone where to say God doesn't exist well ok I respect your opinion why b/c I believe in God and what he has thought me which is kindness respect optimism etc. So everyone has their free will to do and say what they want
For some people, religion touches literally every aspect of their life. All of their actions, decisions, and conversation are affected by their beliefs. Perhaps some people find it annoying. Amazingly the people that are annoyed by people who apply religion consistently to every aspect of their lives are the same ones who point out hypocrisy in those who only let religion affect certain areas of their lives but omit it from others.
If someone truly knew the answer to achieving eternally life, eternal happiness and eternal love, but they chose to keep it to themselves and not share it with anyone else, what would you think of these people? If someone truly knows that the way others around them are living their lives would lead to eternal pain, eternal damnation, but did nothing about it, what would you think of them? If you saw a 5 year old playing with a gun, and having fun, would you let them continue to play with it just because they were enjoying it? Hopefully not, because you feel you know something about the gun and its inherent danger and you would try to take the gun away and prevent him from hurting himself. Some people feel the same way about their faith. They know and believe that others are "playing" with something dangerous. They could let others continue playing and enjoying their time with this danger. But if they really believe and let others continue, they are worse than someone who would let the 5 year old continue playing with the gun, for they believe this danger leads to something worse than death, eternal damnation. This is why I believe some people bring religion into every conversation. Not all people that do this, but many of them. Maybe I'm wrong, but you were asking for what we thought so there you go. If someone is sharing their beliefs with me out of sincere love and caring for my general and eternal well-being, then I appreciate the care and concern, whether I believe them or not.
