This includes: Atheists, Buddhists,Pagans,Deists, etc. Anybody who is the minority in their community/group of friends/family/etc. What are some weird questions that you get asked about your faith by people who don't understand you? just post your faith, and then tell.

this ought to be funny...

Faith: Jewish

Questions: There are a lot of misunderstandings and lies about the Jewish faith. Amongst them is that the Talmud condones terrible immoral deeds. One question I get is if blood from Christian boys is used in the passover meal. LOL! What idiots.

I am in a minority?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Most of the questions I am asked are more attacks posed as questions.

They aren't honest questions. The worst part is trying to explain something to someone, and them telling you that isn't what you really believe.

Faith: Muslim.

Question:"Are you a terrorist?"

Answer: "No dummy, I am an Army Veteran (19 Kilo, M1A1 Tank Crewman), who fought during the first Gulf War with the First Armored Division. Have you wore the uniform?!!

Question: "What do you thing about the Ground Zero Mosque?"

"Seeing that I am a native New Yorker, born and raised, and my older sister nearly lost her life on 9/11 (she's Muslim also) as a first responder, and my brother in law was a sergeant detective ( he's Muslim also) sifted through the rubble that was brought to the Jersey landfill looking for body parts, and my brother, who is a narcotics detective (you guessed it, he's Muslim!), fought in Iraq, I fought in Desert Shield/Storm, and my daughter (you already know what religion she follows) is in the Army RIGHT NOW, I dare someone to tell me that I can't worship ANY PLACE I WANT TO!!"
Say; He Allah (S.W.T.) is One God, He Begets not, nor is He begotten, and there is none like unto Him."

I agree. Muslims are way too persecuted here. Also, I believe the name "ground zero mosque" adds fuel to a fire that should have never Even began. It is rediculous.

Well said. It's also ridiculous opposition, considering the mosque is NOT even right on ground zero, but a few blocks away.

You also failed to add Christian.

It seems today that there is not even a full 12% of actual-Bible-believing-Christians. today we just see many "interpreted denominational cults".

To give you an idea, there are members of my family who are incapable of going 2 or 3 sentences without making some type of reference to their religion.

ABout 76% of America is made of of Christians, according to the last census. To call only 12 percent true believers,and the rest "cults" is intellectually dishonest.
