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:
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.
