When words just don't suffice, say it with cockpunch.

Double double posts sometimes happen if a connection goes wonky. In other words someone is being smited for their sinny ways.

people shouldn't force their person beliefs, religious or otherwise, on others... it rude and insensitive.

Dude hates on himself for his deeyock seeyocking proclivities
Dude finds Jebus and makes himself feel better by criminalizing others for what he couldn't accept of himself
Dude turns into a baptist minister like the dude who was getting massages from an escort
God presses the smite button on his keyboard
Posts are quadrupled, locusts and frogs fall from the sky as the horsemen of the apocalypse ride in humvees with 40 inch spinners

THIS WAS ALL WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE YOU HEATHEN PIECES OF CRAP

If he's a good friend, he probably is really trying to sincerely 'help'. It may take some time for him to recognize that you don't want his 'help' and hopefully he'll settle down and let live. If I were you I would just hear him out then let him know that your not interested... do not argue. If you still want to be friends with him and he you, he'll understand that he shouldn't force his beliefs on you.

My friend's bro found god and became a born again christian. When I first heard about it I was like "get the fuck outta here thats a good one and laughed about it" then got told again "listen he is into god and the bible now for real, I know its crazy but its true"

This dude used to smoke 1/2oz of insane hydro with a friend of his in a night. He was the biggest partier. Basically the last person I thought would start to follow christianity.

The cool thing is he understands that nobody wants to hear about his beliefs. He will talk about it if you ask him.

I have a good friend who became a born-again Christian. He doesn't want to know about not forcing his beliefs on people.

I have always firmly believed that religion is a very private matter, and was raised to believe that obvious (out loud) public worship outside of a church/mosque/synagogue/etc. is not cool.

Imagine my difficulty trying to get this guy to understand why I was suddenly having issues about going out to eat in public with him because he felt the need to say grace loud enough for everyone in the restaurant to hear....and not something short and sweet, but going ON and ON and ON...rhapsodizing about how wonderful Jeebus is and thanking him for saving his soul...GAAAAH!!

If you have to do that, do it at home. I'm all for expressing gratitude if it makes you feel thankful but when you are very clearly making other people uncomfortable (and not just me, that's for sure - there were people staring from all corners of the restaurant) say the prayer in your head...you're not going to "bring people to Jesus" by making them cringe.

Anyway. Just my two cents. I don't envy your situation, it's clearly much more difficult than my own.
