    I can too but I'd also shrug it off pretty fast, yes I've had experiences.

    I personally do not find it offensive, but I would find it scary.

    I guess it is subjective to the person though. If your roommate is firmly against those belief's, it can be taken as offensive having to be subjected to hearing them screamed by a lunatic when your roommate may not have been able to get away.

    I mean, when I'm waiting to get on a plane -- I don't want to hear about Christianity, I'd be pissed (even if it is a crazy person) if someone was standing there in the terminal reading passages or screaming 'Jesus is Lord' and I couldn't just simply walk away since I was waiting to get on the plane.

    Well yeah, but you don't see throngs of folks screaming their heads off about Sikhism. No one likes their ears violated by other peoples thoughts.
    I'm gonna go lie down.

    To be fair, I have never heard such a public atheist rant. (Possibly because I live in the suburbs.)

    I think it also depends on my current mental state how well I shake it off/ how seriously I take it. The time I let it most unnerve me was one instance in which I had had a really long cloudy grey day and was waiting out in the drizzle for the bus because I just wanted to get home. This man pulled up to the large throng of students waiting for the bus on his bike, and proceeded to get on a soapbox (a metal mesh one) and passionately declare about my salvation and to accept the spirit of God into my heart. If I hadn't been in a fairly familiar environment with fairly familiar people I'm not sure I'd have taken it very well.

    I am just saying that to me, it would be the behavior and not the content that would be cause for concern.

    I have seen very pushy aggression from certain atheists and it makes me decide that if the two sides ever break out in open conflict, I am heading for the hills!
