Okay, I want your honest opinions about this. Don't hold back, I can take it.
I belong to a Facebook group for people who live in Prescott. Granted, I don't live in Prescott any more and one day I'll unjoin the group but when I lived there it was a great source to find restaurants, learn about things going on, etc.
People can post on it. There are a few guidelines, like no pornography, have it related to Prescott, no selling of items, etc.
Tonight a woman posted a gorgeous Prescott sunset and wrote "God is good."
A guy commented "That's just the sky. God isn't real. Quit pushing your beliefs on people. Great picture though."
She replied back "Sorry I offended you."
(Now before I go on, she does a lot of posting on Facebook, pictures, encouragement and if people are going through a rough time she'll say she's praying for them, but I have yet to see her really "shove down" her faith and beliefs on this page. She doesn't post Bible verses, she doesn't preach, she just encourages and prays for people.)
I was a bit spunky (I usually don't post much on the page, just read what others say) so I left a comment "Actually I don't think she is pushing her beliefs, she is just simply stating a fact she believes to be true which I believe to also be true. A person can scroll past if they don't agree, but she has the right to post what she wants and she has the right to believe what she chooses to believe, which in this case is the truth. God is good."
He responded back "You too are pushing your beliefs on others. You simply don't get it."
And he was right, I didn't get it. She simply made a statement. People have made other statements about other religions and beliefs there, just as statements. Not pushing, not evangelizing, just stating.
My last reply was "no I guess I don't, but I believe I say hope you have a nice day tomorrow. I hope that's not pushing it too far
To which he replied "You as well, thank you."
To which I just hit like.
So, here's my thing. Was she pushing her beliefs? She made a simple statement
God is good with a picture of a pretty sunset.
Why would someone take it offensively and think she was shoving her beliefs down his throat?
You guys are all respectful of me with my beliefs and I try (I know I'm not 100% perfect) to be respectful of yours and other peoples beliefs.
I'm just curious your thoughts. Think she was over the line for pushing her beliefs? Think he was just having a bad day?
She right for posting something?
I'm clueless here. I don't get it.
