This morning an old man came onto the crowded subway car and started preaching Jesus. Not unusual, but this time this woman asked him to stop saying it isn't right that he's preaching to what's essentially a captive audience. People are going to work, school, etc., they can't move, it's kind of annoying.

Now you also have musicians who come in and play for money, but their sets are usually a few minutes, whereas this old man was jabbering for a solid 15-20. The more I think about it, subway preachers really are a nuisance. The worst I can think of was a few weeks back where this guy was literally bellowing and screaming to repent and it actually disturbed my reading. Really, **** off. It's the equivalent of proselytizing in a crowded elevator, if the elevator ride was 40 minutes long.

So this woman made me see something in a new light.

Your thoughts?

I agree. If someone's gonna jabber on for an extended amount of time then it's fine to ask them to shut up.

I don't really care what people talk about if they're just talking. If someone's gonna be yelling for 20 straight minutes it might get a tad annoying though.
#7
I agree because they do have a right, it is pretty annoying. I am a pretty knowledgeable Christian, and often times they preach flawed messages. I correct these mistakes (in front of everyone), and they look like an idiot afterwards. I have never seen the same subway preacher on my train twice. The other regulars love me for it.

Does "I agree" mean I agree with their right to preach, or that I agree that they are a nuisance?

I don't care if people are just preaching at talking volume, because lots of people talk on the train. but if they're yelling and screaming and targeting people then it's pretty annoying.

However, let me ask you a follow-up question; if someone came onto your train and started loudly preaching for atheism, saying how god (any god) never existed and about how religious people need to realise their stupidity, would you say something, or would you object to someone else saying something?
#16
I don't care what you belief is, yelling at people for a good 15-20 mins is annoying.

I'd find that just as irritating, it's a bad context to preach anything especially in the morning.

there's more than one way to not allow something. if I'm the only person on the train who doesn't want to hear it, I still won't allow it to be heard (while I'm on the train). The guy should stop if asked by anyone, not just the train authorities
#19
Its annoying but as long as they aren't yelling, but using calm, talking tones without being a dick/offensive to anyone who am I to stop them. Sure people can ask him to stop on the same principle

I listen to music while on the bus so I can't hear anyone talking. It wouldn't annoy me, and if it did I would the person to knock it off.

I would either pull out my Ipod and listen to that instead or get to the train station a bit earlier and take a different train. Stop being a whiny bitch.

+1 to the first part.

To the second, I would find that less annoying. Hearing someone preach something I disagree with is more annoying. I think that's pretty normal though. I would say nothing in either scenario. If they're being loud I would hope someone would quiet them down, but if it amounts to some improv debate, I'd rather just hear the preaching.

i liked those people who handed out pamphlets about the end of the world last year. (was it really a year ago now?)

i would act all excited and grab the pamphlet from their hands and when they told me the world was ending i'd scream "I CAN'T ****ING WAIT!" and dance a little.

If they're shouting I'd say they could get in trouble for disturbing the peace. Otherwise, it's freedom of speech.
