    Sorry, but I don't care. I stand by every word I said. I also don't want your love or sympathy. Intention doesn't matter here.
    I feel that intensely; ouch. Is there no doing right by you or making you feel understood? How about something warm to warm you up like hot cocoa or hot blackberry cobbler?

    I enjoy a friendly debate with the Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses that stop by. I invite them in for tea. I give them a hard time. I crack jokes. We laugh. There's no harm in that.

    Look, we're extremely different. You're values and mine are incompatible. Further, by my nature I am very "us versus them" and do not associate or take well to individuals that I see as problematic or harmful to the world. Your constant desire to "make amends" just pushes me further. Anyone that does that to me gets that sort of response. I don't see you as reasonable or fair with your views. It's also quite clear that you do not have the capacity to be critical with them either and because of it is impossible to really have any sort of meaningful discussion or find a sort of middle ground.

    I believe you recognize that as well, and respond by saying "ok, we'll ignore the issues and just be nice". I don't work like that. While it might actually be genuine and coming from the heart for you, it doesn't seem like that for me, and as such I will respond very poorly to it.

    At the very least, I hope you'll understand that excessive or vapid kindness/love is not always appreciated by people. Sometimes, it can go so far as to make it worse.

    See, I don't do this sort of shit (sorry for such a strong word here, but I struggle to find another). I could never do such a thing. Why because it is SO incredibly dishonest. Unless intention is made clear at the premise of course, but even then I couldn't do such a thing.

    Here's why. Right from the get go, I don't agree with them at all. Not even a little. I actually view this religious views as harmful (In particular Jehovah's Witnesses). Why on earth would I invite someone in my home, be all "nicey nice" to them, only to hold them figuratively captive, grill their views that the clearly will not change, and then have to sit back and listen to their drivel that will only proceed to anger me? The harm I see in it is taking advantage of their naïvety to try and "convert" them or show them the error of their ways under the guize of being "nice". It's so deceitful and I could never do such a thing.

    I understand why others do it but just... nope. no. It breaks FAR too many of my rules to do it. When someone approaches me with this sort of stuff in public I just make a quick condensed comment that makes it clear that I don't agree with them, I see them as wrong, and that I very much wish they would stop doing what they do and believing what they believe. I then move on.

    I understand where you're coming from.

    I don't know if you realize it, but nearly all of my posts in this thread were paraphrased or skewed in a way that was berating. If that's how my vapid kindness makes you feel, for goodness sake, I am sorry.

    For what it's worth, when you approached me and replied to my first post to the thread with some intensity, I thought you were reaching out for my help to solve a problem. I naturally assume people want to return to a happy state because that's how I am, so I tried to do that. Next time, I won't do that.

    The bolded is the crux of this. I wasn't, and most people don't either. I'm very blunt and direct so I say if I want or don't want help of sorts. Assumptions in these sorts of matters don't always work.

    I was at a bible study once when I was new to a church. The mormon's came to the door and the host invited them in to sit with us. That was fun.

    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Sends chills down my spine, and actually does make me sad for you. I genuinely mean that. I hope you see yourself as more than that.
