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

Yeah that's true.. Why is it that the non-religious actually have more knowledge of the Bible than the religious? Hmm.. maybe we can turn all Christians atheist if we can get them to read the Bible! Mwahahaha!
Please tell me it was PvP and you killed him.
I had a girl that I used to date (from youth group) come to me some years later with a letter she had written. The letter bashed my lifestyle and informed me that I should get used to the idea of hell because that's where I'll end up. The letter then ended with a nice little invite to return to bible study and cleanse my filthy soul. When I confronted her about the letter she explained to me that god was speaking through her and guiding her hand so if I was angry with her I was really pissed at the almighty. Obviously, I suggested that if that was true, and the lord spoketh through her, then she was in possession of the most recent chapter of the good book! God started writing again! I took it upon myself to name this letter "The Book of Skank."

What a great way to keep people stuck in a made up fantasy world.

Yeah, I am also a "Son of Perdition" according to my sister. Out of the 5 of us siblings, she is the only one who is not agnostic/atheist. She is estranged from the rest of us. Even her kids are non-religious, as well as all my other nieces/nephews. Mormonism is responsible for this.

A, incredibly off the wall/creepy girl I knew in high school (a very fanatical Catholic) once described hallucinations of fire and flowers she would see while walking down the school hallways. Of course, she didn't call them hallucinations, they were "visions" to her. The things she described and her extreme paranoia make me think she was most likely schizophrenic. What's even sadder is the would most likely never seek or receive help for it because she'd been so thoroughly brainwashed by her church and parents into believing that the voices she heard and the things she saw were "messages from god".
One once told me that I valued human life too much....(this was during a debate about god allowing the holocaust)

*Shudder* That to me is when all negotiation breaks down. I so often use violent/genocidal/sexist bible verses to illustrate its amorality. But that assumes that the person really doesn't want to be seen as violent/genocidal/sexist.

Then you run across someone who doesn't mind that label at all.

Again I say ... *Shudder*
Was this person pro-life?
:-) lol... brilliant question - subtle... am pretty sure it'd be lost upon them
I was raised in a Mormon family in Utah and have heard plenty of weird and creepy things. I'd have to say one of the creepiest things came from my wife's Uncle, who is odd even by Mormon standards. Uncle Rick was so certain that Armageddon would happen with the new millennium and thus usher in the second coming of Jesus that he was making explosives in preparation for the impending famine and violence. Gotta protect that two year food supply from the godless starving masses ya know.
Well Rick wasn't as careful as he should have been and wound up blowing the backside of his house up and breaking all the neighbors windows. It was "miraculous" that he survived at all, a coincidence that was later lauded (ad nauseum) as "proof" that Holy Undergarments protect the righteous. Rick survived having lost his right arm and most of the fingers of his left hand. His abdominal cavity will never heal over and he has to wear a mesh apparatus that keeps his innards in. Also his face is severely disfigured.
Now for the creepy bit. We had been living out of Utah for a number of years and were visiting for a wedding when Uncle Rick took a shine to my then 4 year old son. I knew enough to stay close and not let anything too creepy happen, but he did cause my son some duress when he told him that Jesus had taken his fingers. LOL I guess its something you'd have to see to get the whole impact of it. But imagine being four years old and having this grizzled image of a man tell you that Jesus collects fingers like a sick soldier collects ears. Fortunately my boy had enough thinking skills to realize how ridiculous that would be. He still mentions it even 10 years later.
