Amusing Responses You Got From People When You Came Out About Being An Atheist.

I thougt It would be interesting to see some of the more comical responses people have received upon coming out. I'll start things off with my favorite.

I was about 16 and a guy in class found out that I didn't believe in god and he came up to me and asked

Boy: "So do you really not believe in god"

Me: "No."

Boy: "So.... You worship the devil?!"

I got this one in one form or another many times..... Gotta love the bible belt! :)

My favorite response was from my aunt.

Aunt: We just have to ask god what the best plan is right now.

Me: Well, I don't believe in god.

Aunt: How?! Does your mom know?!

A little back story: My mom is textbook conservative. She's not A bible-thumper, she's THE bible-thumper. She always votes republican even though she knows nothing about the candidates. As long as they're Christian, that's good enough for her. I have had Christianity shoved down my throat for all of my life after the age of 5(she's the worst kind....born again). Imagine her disappointment when she found out I was a liberal, gay, atheist. Haha!
bet that went over like turd in a punch bowl
Yeah, another one...I swear coming out as gay is so much easier!
ZOMG , you really cannot get more heathenish than that. the look on her face must of been angelic, pardon the pun.
I love how "true Christians" get to be the arbiter of who is a Christian, not God or some other all knowing being.
Not sure if this counts but I have always considered myself an Athiest/Humanist but I attended a fairly lax Catholic High School (I was beat up by a girl from the non religious High School), anyway I was always considered one of the "good" students, good grades, never in trouble etc., then one day in my Fifth year a teacher asked to speak to me to ask me if I would be alter girl for some church event the school was involved in, I calmly said no and was asked why not, to which I replied "Well I have never been baptised and am an atheist so I don't think I am what the church has in mind...". The look on his face was priceless.
I go to a catholic High School and everyone now knows to avoid me after this.

Teacher: Joe, so why don't you believe in god?

Me: Why don't you believe in Zeus?

Teacher: Cause Zeus is not real.

Me: *raise eyebrows and look at teacher pityingly

Teacher: Any Way......
As a "descendent" of Thor (note my family name), it makes me sad that this person doesn't know the difference between greek and norse myths.

Ok, I don't get it.

1. Which person doesn't know the difference (Joe Henry or the teacher?)

2. What Norse myth? He was talking about Zeus and Jehovah, a Greek god and a Judeo/Christian god.

'Splain?

(BTW, I love Joe Henry's teaching the teacher by example, great!)

I learned a new term to use ^.^
Yea, I like that one too.
thank you - I love learning more latin
