I attended a baptism earlier tonight and it was very difficult for me to listen to what was being said, but since I was raised with manners, I bit my tongue and let others be others. When it came time to rise and go the front for the baptism of one of the congregation, I stayed in my seat. I was asked (very loudly) by a woman why I didn't go up front. Surprised by her rudeness, I replied why hadn't she? She came right back with "Because I'm an Atheist!" (Again, very loudly)
No matter where I am, I would never just shout something like that out, especially in someone else's church. I feel that others are free to worship whomever or whatever they want, they don't need me interrupting. I was wondering how you guys would respond to such a thing? I don't think any one of us here would do that as it seems that we are a bunch of decent people. (yes Zaph, you are included in that! )
