I’m not one to enjoy posts of these kinds, but I find that I can’t help myself this time. (Plus, I can’t ignore things bouncing around in my head while in the shower. It’s humanly impossible.) From everything I’ve read, from everything I’ve seen, and from everything I’ve heard, experienced, argued…there’s always the one or two people that come out with the same comment that ticks me off to no ends. It doesn’t matter if it’s about Atheists, Christians, Asians, white people, black people.
To each and every one of you: The fact that I feel the powerful urge to waste my time writing about this is entirely your fault.
Not every Atheist you meet is going:
-to want to tear your beliefs limb from limb,
-care that you believe in a religion instead of what they believe in,
-be an asshole, a prick, a foul-mouthed and/or seemingly rabid monster
-think your religion is going to be the utter destruction of the human race,
-tell you you’re ignorant and brain-washed and utterly moronic,
-give a crap about your preaching and quotation of Bible versus’,
-feel the need to get into a theological conversation with you with the main intention of insulting you every step of the way,
-be completely selfish and be absolutely devoid of care or forgiveness or good-will.
-And for the record, not every Atheist who ever believed in a religion gave up their beliefs because of some emotional “he wasn’t there for me” or “I didn’t feel the divine presence of God in my life” bull.
Not every Christian you meet is going to:
-constantly quote passages from the Bible every other sentence,
-tell you that you and everyone else who doesn’t believe in what they believe in are going straight to the fiery pits of hell to burn for all eternity,
-be a die-hard Bible-thumping maniac who will follow you to your car screaming that you are a spawn of Satan,
-spew hate speech towards homosexuals or non-Christians,
-call you a moron because you don’t believe in God,
-give a crap that you don’t believe in what they believe,
-talk to you about religion in general
-be completely close-minded
-not take into consideration anything you say
Your assumptions and generalizations disgust and insult me. I don’t even know how to comment on the ignorance such statements reek of.
Hey guys, did you ever realize that not all Asians know Kung-Fu, not all white people are red-necks, not all black people live on gummy bears, watermelon, and fried chicken, Santa Claus isn’t real, cats don’t suck out your soul while you sleep, and witches don’t ride by moonlight on broomsticks?
I would love it if everyone could stop being complete and total assholes to everyone and anyone who doesn’t agree with them 100%, but, unfortunately, I can’t hold my breath for that long.
