Is it ok to bug someone into the Church? I mean, can I just keep bugging GKC and Cyprian and ClosetCatholic until they convert?

Maybe I should let the good Father answer first, but one thing I've learned over the years is that nagging is ineffective at best and counter-productive at worst. Even if they converted "just to shut you up," I'd have reason to suspect the validity of their conversion. The much more likely outcome would be the fostering of a deep-seeded resentment of Catholicism. Would you really want to explain to Our Lord one day why you were responsible for driving them away from Holy Mother Church?

Usually people that do as you describe have no powers of introspection / self awareness.
Who / what made you realize that you tend to nag? ... Relentlessly ... :)
God love you...

My friend -- and I am definitely bragging here -- I can out-nag my wife.

It all happened when I got in touch with my feminine side. Suddenly I knew I had power unbridled.

I've been out of town, just saw this one.

It's ok by me if you try. One never knows.

Speaking for myself, of course.

Shiprock came up in conversation today. As did Coronado and San Antonio.
