Religion (And Unbelief)
When you sneeze and somebody says "God bless you" do you inform them there's no evidence for the existence of any such being...or do you just say thank you? Talk to me about rudeness related to believing and non.
Please, for the love of whichever deity you claim to represent, do not come to my door and attempt to engage me in conversation about your lord. You want to believe in that stuff, fine. Just go ahead and do it, while leaving me in peace, please.
I've often wanted to go beat on the doors of a Jehovah's Witness church service, and when someone opens them, ask them if they have a few moments to discuss Catholicism. Not that I'm Catholic or anything, but you get the point.

I work as a bookkeeper for a small business and had to call a patron regarding a check they'd written that was returned by their bank unpaid.
Me: "Hi may I please speak to Terry?"
Terry: "This is she"
Me: "Hi this is Suzanne from _ _ _ _"
Terry: "OMG, I HAVE TO GO"
I called back and of course received the answering machine with a sticky sweet message ending with "AND GOD BLESS YOU"
Ahah! Perfect! A guilt-ridden, hypocritical, Christian! Nothing could be more perfect( and annoying) at the same time. Of course, I left the following message:
"Hi, its Suzanne calling back. Really didn't appreciate being hung up on...I had not idea that Christians did that sort of thing..but anyhow, I was calling to tell you about the check that was returned to us unpaid...we'll need to get a new check or cash from you for $24 ( yes, can you believe that all it was for?) which includes the bank fee we were charged...God Bless You!"
The money promptly showed up two days later!!

I have a religious experience for you. How about adults who talk in church during the service ? I went to mass this evening and was treated to two men and one woman who spoke, not in whispers, but in a normal tone of voice throughout the service! These boors were sitting behind me. I turned to look at them and it did not phase them at all! The icing on the cake is that these three individuals were adults between forty five and fifty five years of age! What was so important that they could not discuss it after church ? A football game and betting on it. Nice huh ?

People who plan groups to meet around the holidays and who silence people from expressing their beliefs. That is a double no-no and offensive to many.

A few years ago my husband and I journeyed to a new to us tree farm to cut down our Christmas tree. The farm we usually go to had sold out early. When we arrived the salesman/owner greeted us with "Merry Christmas". We said something like, "yes! Which way to the Nobel Firs". He repeated "Merry Christmas" much more forcefully a couple more times. So, we said it back to him. Apparently, it wasn't enough of a clue that we were there to PURCHASE A CHRISTMAS TREE. We had to SAY the word, "Christmas" to him or the terrorists win (or something). Weird and rude.
