There are some very nice people of faith in every religion and I've had the pleasure of talking to many of them...
Of course there are some who are ignorant, like the annoying korean Christian missionary who couldn't stand Buddha ... (I didn't understand why she didn't, but at that time I didn't care too much since I wasn't a Buddhist)
Now if someone really starts talking to me, I try to speak to them about the Dhamma without insulting other people's beliefs.
I have a very strong understanding of the Bible, so I've actually had some more open minded ones gain greater interest in learning the Dhamma once they see the parallels. If I can get some of them to read the Dhamma, that's cool!
