Where are you?
I know you exist.
It’s not that I need people to be disgusted by the existence of God, I just want to meet some who don’t rely on the concept so heavily. I don’t consider myself to be an atheist or an agnostic. I guess I’m more of a – who cares?- type of person.
I am meeting all sorts of new people and they talk freely about being excited about the Lord’s provision over their lives and how great church is and how God is going to rescue them from their troubles and I’m sitting there like- sure.
I feel like I’m hiding a part of myself so I speak up and say, “I’m not a Christian.”
Raised eyebrows all around.
“So you’re an atheist?”
Atheism is not the opposite of Christianity.
That shit is so annoying.
“I don’t believe in anything. I don’t care about an afterlife. I live my life for me.”
I don’t hear from them again. Seems Christianity is an exclusive club that others can’t get next to unless they feel they can convert you.
Oh. I get it. They think I’m the devil.
