    Default is this offensive?

    A crazy guy on a street corner screaming "praise the lord" junk, if so how?

    my room mate came home pissed off because nut job was saying that, and basically shouting and bitching about it. I mean the guy on the corner is probably insane. maybe I'm so use to it and know that I don't have to believe what he's saying.

    Someone please help me figure out what's so offensive, I mean too the point that one is practically throwing a tantrum.


    I mean as long as don't try form an exorcist or dunk me in a vat of holy water, crazy fanactics don't really bother me.

    Your room mate could have felt that his or her autonomy, space, or even safety was threatened by his screaming of impassioned orders.

    I sure would have.

    I think she was probably offended by his methods, not his message. If some guy is screaming and ranting incoherently on the street, I'd probaby get annoyed even if he was screaming about how awesome I am.

    your room mate needs to experience a few real problems, so he'll learn the difference and be happier in the future.

    if you're a true friend, you'll rob him blind when he falls asleep.

    She probably felt violated, which might seem like offense.

    That seems more annoying than offensive. I personally would have gotten away from the man as quickly as possible. People shouting at me about Christianity are really discombobulating to me, so I generally nod uncomfortably and leave. I think that your roommate was just a bit shaken. Nothing big.
    I'm gonna go lie down.

    I can understand the feeling of being threatened by in-your-face religious zealotry in public places. Most of the time they are just dull/annoying (especially the ones that talk about going to hell or praying for God to save us heathens).

    I would be just as discombobulated by someone shouting and ranting about Atheism as I would Christianity...even someone shouting about the Tao of Pooh!
