    I walked through the town square today to see a big group of people, surrounding someone carrying a huge cross and another person one a electronic keyboard with another one on a guitar.

    I found it really creepy and it totally unnerved me.

    I really dont like it when the religious come out onto the streets, I can cope with it when its kept behind closed doors... but seriously, i find it really weird.

    There's a guy in the next town who raps, changing the lyrics of Eminem's songs to fit religious stories...that's quite amusing. Other than that, I respect otehr people's religious beliefs but would rather not have it shouted at me while I'm walking around town.

    That amuses me too... churches trying to be trendy : )

    the parody propoganda posters some have outside ripping of random brands and sayings I find amusing...

    like one had a nike tick in clouds, saying "Just do it"

    then below it said "jesus did it for you..." lol

    All you oxford-circlites should know the sinner-or-winner man. I was wearing my sunderland football shirt there a few months back (their stadium is called The Stadium of Light) and he yells out "Hey, you could go to the stadium on light - in heaven!" So he knows his football, which begs the question of who on earth pays him?

    I'm quite scared by it, they are too confident and I don't like the way they give me that you are going to hell look. That is just annoying.

    The guy by Oxford Circus tube station is quite amusing - my friend had a long argument with him once. There's another person in Covent Garden who insists (through a long chain of logic) that if you're not a Christian you will end up a murderer. It's great until they come up to you and ask you why you don't want to be saved. Its a difficult question to answer...

    My village does something like that... they get a giant cross with flowers growing on it and carry it up to a hill, where it stays for a few months. I've never actually seen them parading it about though, luckily the God Squad tend to come out before noon when I'm still safely tucked up in bed.

    I hate it. If I can say one good thing about Catholicism it's that Latin Mass is cool.

    Personally I like my churches big, imposing and with nothing in them appart from some candles (for light - not for any Pagan idolatry!) and a decent minister who doesn't feel like having to appeal to the young or those with short attention spans.

    I saw a sign in a little city religious centre window which said "Christ Loves You Passionately" - now I perhaps see the slight pun there, but to be honest the idea of a middle eastern gentleman with super powers attempting to love me 'passionately' fills me with dread.

    I think that religion has some great morals backing it, but it's just been complicated by strange people wearing funny clothing and waving crosses everywhere.

    Yeah, I do find that extremely evangelical people tend to freak me out. There's a guy who wanders round my city, pushing a pram full of billboards covered in religious slogans, and muttering under his breath about salvation... then there are the nutters who are convinced that religion can be more fun than sinning, and consequently hand out leaflets containing such well- constructed verses as the following:

    "Get ready for Heaven or you'll be left behind,
    To face a dreadful Judgement, so awful you will find,
    The flames of Hell are real, friend, and this is where you go,
    If you fail to trust in Jesus, you'll know eternal woe."

    (The joke only being furthered by the ensuing passage which proclaims "if you have found peace with God through reading this leaflet, or you require further spiritual help, a FREE Bible, cassette tapes or literature, then telephone or write today....")

    I do have fun with Jehovah's witnesses though

    Yeh there's a right rogue man who wanders round town telling people how unsafe the streets are these days and to go to Kingdom Hall and gives you rogue leaflets with a picture of people playing with animals that is meant to be heaven..

    the streets are only unsafe because people like him are accosting you
