So I am athiest, but I work with a die hard Christian, and she keeps mentioning how she can pray for me, and how I need to beleive in jesus, and I need more of god in my life. she mentions the bible 24/7 and often preaches at work.

I want to know if this bothers anyone else when this happens, and how to nicely tell them to knock it off if this happens.

Have you told her to stop? If so, go see your First Sergeant and tell him or her what is going on. Don't forget to use your chain of command first. First your team leader, squad leader, platoon sergeant and platoon leader.

I'm not sure the rules for the military, but your'r not allowed to do that sort of thing in pretty much every big company or public job. I would find out the rules on that, and find out if there are punishments or provisions against this. Then select one of the following statements.

'Stop talking about Jesus. He doesn't exist, your'e stupid, and if you don't stop, I'll report you for creating a hostile work environment you fat, hairy c*nt.'

'I understand that you really care about me, but know that you will not change my mind the way you are trying, and that like you, I also search for the truth. If you cannot accept the truth that I have found, or at least not harass me about it, then I don't think that I can talk to you in any non-work related conversation.'

' Shut up or I will gather my army of atheists, and pray to Satan! He will possess my body making me the anti-christ and I shall destroy you and your soul! Bwu-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.'

- I am not responsible for any repercussions that occur from taking my advice.

Or you could ask her to stop pestering you and try her luck against some one (me!) who can kick her ideological butt!

So PM me with her email & I'll contact her & she can strut her stuff!

OR

Get her to try her luck here at this Forum!

Remind her that with her almighty god, jebus & h-spirit against poor me, I technically shouldn't have a hope against all of them; so she needn't be a gutless coward and refuse!

Cheers!

Actually you are allowed to. The first amendment only protects you against the Government endorsing religion, not private individuals.

For most businesses, they say that religion is one of those topics that if addressed in a certain way can be considered, 'creating a hostile work environment'. In this person's situation, I would say that this clearly qualifies.

According to my ssgt I have to ignore it because there is nothing in our regulations that state it's not okay for her to preach like that.
