Report Objections to Derek Ernst thanking God after his win? in Tour Talk May 9, 2013 This is one of the few things I feel very strongly about. I despise anyone who thinks that it's his job to push his religion on others. I dislike evangelism in the extreme forms which it tends to take - the believe my way or you'll burn in Hell philosophy. I have nothing but antipathy for churches which use that sort of guilt to build their membership, then use it to fleece their congregations so the leaders can live like kings. These things turn me strongly against any attempt to draw me from my beliefs. If it's an overreaction, then so be it. I think that you may not understand exactly what evangelism is. Evangelism us not telling you that ur hell bound if you don't believe what I do, but instead that I have something in my relationship with the Lord that is so incredible that I want to share it with as many people as possible. That being said there are a lot of "christians" that may take it too far (I can speak from personal experience on this because my Dad is such even though he doesn't mean to, I think that he is so excited about his faith that he can't help but tell everyone he sees ot talks to). I don't expect you to agree with me but as a christian I am compelled to share my faith with as many people as possible and if I had a pulpit as big as a golf tournament interview than I would hope that I would say the same thing. As far as him "preaching" or "Bible thumping", I hardly think that what he said was either of those things... At least ESPN didn't do a whole bit/interview on his beliefs/views.
