Why do the religious feel obliged to run around attempting to shove their superstitious lunacy down everyone else's throats? They scare me. They burn people they don't like, you know. Especially the old ones, and i'll be 60 this year.

They're also screaming all the time about truth, and about love. If you don't love their truth, they'll stone you, or burn you, or just run you down with a pick-up truck. It seems like they're angry all the time!

What's up with that ? ! ? ! ?

I'm not sure if you're serious or not. But what you're saying is historically accurate, so I will give a serious answer.
The anger they are prone to is due to a lack of being able to prove what they live for. I have two close friends who continually tell me that if I don't let Jesus into my heart I will burn eternally in Hell upon my death. I am touched that they care for my soul, but then I ask them why it is that they won't burn with me as I know they both sin regularly. Apparently God forgives them regularly.
The point is that they get angry firstly, because emotional people tend to be the ones to look for religion as a means to justify any bad things they do or as a comfort for these angry emotions. Secondly, they are angry because they believe in a God that does not exist and therefore they cannot prove to people like myself that it exists as this means of justifying their horrible actions. My friends, of course, aren't horrible people and I admire their faith. Sometime I even wish I could blindly follow some comforting doctrine, myself. However, this anger is hugely hypocritical and for the life of me I don't understand why people get so emotional in the first place.

God protect me from your followers (on this forum).

geez, set, you're still in your fifties? damned kid. I'd have thought you'd have needed at least 15 more years, maybe 20, to get so crotchety (I agree with you, tho)

Because their god is a dangerous lunatic, prone to kill, destroy, burn, crash, drown all those that don't follow his will..

Remember that if you have only one testicle, you cannot enter his house..

@rosborne979,
Not all do. Back when I was a catholic, proselytizing was not pushed, at least in daily life, although there was a heavy interest in supporting catholic missionaries to foreign lands. I take the routine daily life type pushing as a fundamentalist christian behavior, and am not sure that all of those sects do it either.
