I agree that she is referring to that. It reminds me of a time several years ago (when my mother sensed that I was moving away from religion) when she said, "You're gayness doesn't affect your salvation." Like that was going to make a difference. And it is somewhat insulting, because I know that when she says stuff like that, she is relying on the "fact" that my sins can be forgiven. Great. A big part of who I am is a sin. Nice.
She hasn't pushed it since then. I feel she is afraid of what will come out of my mouth if she does. And she should be afraid:)
This isn't the most disturbing by far, but it is the most memorable. I was 7 and hit a ball into a neighbors yard, the scary lady that all the kids thought was "a witch". I look around and don't see anyone, run to grab the ball and she seriously pops up from behind a bush and tells me that, "Jesus lives in the flowers and he is watching everything you do!".
She had a really nice yard and I think she was scared I was going to ruin her azaleas or something and I guess the Jesus security system is cheaper than ADT, which as I understand does not keep kids off your lawn.
Another incident was in an online class, I think it was a philosophy class but every class from this school was filled with religious fruits who made everything about god and Jesus. We had to debate "evolution vs. creationism" (man, I am so pissed that school got one semester tuition from me!), and at one point I said, "Well if god made everything then who made god?" His exasperated reply, "Well obviously God's father!" Obviously! Thanks for clearing that up!
My friend was on dialysis. I was with him when a kidney came through! I was so happy, jumping up and down for him. He told the lady he would have to call her back. I was perplexed.
"God will heal me," he said.
I heard him call her back and HE GAVE UP A KIDNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went outside and puked and quit talking to him.
Did you obtain a restraining order?
From my fundy friend:
"Atheism is a religion."
"You shouldn't have sex with that girl. Because when you wake up that girl you thought you bagged is going to be a demon."-WTF
"Jesus is the only lover I ever need"-sadly, I've heard that alot
"Just let Jesus love you, let him get all up in there"-wtf...
I had a super religious/ fundamentalist Christian recently attack me when I said I was an atheist. She had asked me, "Aren't you a Christian?" and I said, "No way, I refuse to buy into that superstition." She became very upset and told me she couldn't talk to me anymore.
Just prior to that, we were having a conversation about what to do with all the people who were having children they couldn't raise (were too poor, had "bad values," etc.) She told me there should be a way to take the children from those people (essentially, the Medicaid dependent or poor) and have them raised the "right" way (the Right way). I asked her, "who decides what is the "right" way and what child gets re-homed? Is this sort of like a Rescue Program for human children, like the Humane Society?" and she said that was exactly what we needed-- a rescue program for kids being raised in a way she thought was not "right" (Right). I was totally creeped out. Then she asked me if I was Christian and blah blah blah....
