One told me she loved Jesus more than her husband, anything or anyone alive.

 I told her i found that very sad and disturbing.
She's no longer writing to me.

 "God has healed amputees." "God can cure transgenders".

"I have this disease cause it enabled me to better understand my son."

I attended a youth group session with my girlfriend, we both just sat and twiddled our thumbs while we waited for the sermon and songs to end so we could get to the stuff we could actually take part in. During this time two girls of about 11-12 im guessing came up to us. they were both humming loudly to the song while waving their hands smoothly above their heads, they were also crying. anyway they just stood there, waving their hands above our hands. i asked them to stop, they didn't respond. I called out to who i thought was their mother (i was right) and asked her to deal with them. She responded by praising "her little angels for bringing the gift of Jesus to the sinners" (Side note: a few days after, i was dumped, i asked why and she said it was because of this incident, she refused to elaborate, so i dunno, but thanks Christianity you cost me a relationship.)

I worked with a woman who said she would kill her daughter if god told her too.  I told her she was full of excrement and the only reason she said this is because she knows god doesn't exist and to get attention.  Needless to say we never became friends.

Since I originally wrote this,my one religious friend remarried and had a baby by her new hubby..Who does not like me...
Why does he not like me? I'm an atheist.
I've seen my friend less and less since she got married and she's pushed harder and harder to convert me..I am now I was no longer welcome in their house..
Why?

Three guesses.

yeah this hurts and it pisses me off as well.
I gave made a decision however..I'll never be friends with a religious person again...Yet they think they are so much better than everyone else,even as they treat us like dog crap on their collective shoes.

I have a second cousin who seriously thinks he's a descendant of Atlantis. He's in his mid-50s and has never really had a job, never had a girlfriend and lives at home being kept as a child by his near-90yo mother.

He announced to my family that he couldn't be employed because "in the year 2000, I will be needed". He's still unemployed.

For 'creepy' - I was told recently, by someone otherwise entirely decent and a working molecular biologist , in a way that was very matter-of-fact if not verging on the approving, that his brother had undergone an exorcism in Bangladesh. 

I admit this caught me off guard and I didn't equip myself well with a rational response - my gast was well and truly flabbered! - but on reflection I think exorcisms are creepy - and I wonder why on earth people would still practise them in the 21st century.

do pastor's kids count? abt. 6 n 12? year olds said they'd burn my car over not believing in god that's fubar!

anyhew.. it's not what they say but what they do see:

That I was cursed because black people are decendents of Ham. WTF?

I have a gay friend who has really religious parents. His father thinks that gay people literally worship the devil! And I thought... Oh! That's what gay means! Devil worshipers! I had it wrong all this time! XD

Not so much creepily said as creepily done.

We had just been present for my uncles passing when a priest came in to comfort the family, he came up behind me and started rubbing my shoulders for a good 10 minutes as he talked to my relatives. He never moved around the room either, just stayed behind me rubbing my shoulders-

I can only sarcastically poke at why no one said anything, maybe even make a bad joke about how my family IS catholic… But it speaks for itself. Very creepy and badly timed.
