AWANA is an evangelical youth indoctrination program franchised to churches. It's supposed to make learning about Jesus fun. Unfortunately for them, the only way to do that would be to play up the zombie angle. For some reason, churches don't seem to go for that.
In 8th grade a fellow classmate was run over by a bus afterschool. Myself and other classmates were horrified to have actually seen his body crushed and lifeless in the street. Days later a classmate who grew up just around the corner from him said to me quite casually that he was going to hell anyway because he was rude in an arguement with his mother.
I know this is not creepy in the usual standard, but to hear anyone say anything this stupid because of their biblical brainwashing kind of gave me the heeby jeebies. I was dating this fundie girl for a short period and invited her over to my friends house where we converse about more interesting topics than what is the hot new show on t.v. So we got into a discussion and I asked this girl if she believed in the big bang. She said, and i quote, "Yeah isn't that what killed the dinosaurs?" I of course laughed for a good period of time until I realized that she was actually serious. I then laughed even harder before I became very sad that a girl in college could actually be that clueless. I ended the relationship that night. To bad too. She was a FREAK!
My brother told me that im no longer in the family because Im an atheist.Then he told me that im a sad person and god will never love me again and God wants to smite me and everyone like me. I looked and laughed at him.
It's way too late for that in my case (Dad's dead, Mom's 87), but you'd think that I'd get at least one of 3 siblings that could see reason. But no, they're all religbious. To be fair, I only got over it a couple of years ago. I am so happy to find out that my sister's kids are nontheists. Yay!
All this is by way of saying I wish I could have some new sisters, and yeah, sisters can be pretty uselss too. Mind you, I like their kids.
