I don't hate other religions, i just don't care for their knowledge or understanding of things. Why im an atheist. I don't see how they believe in things they believe, but i don't hate them. I respect religions, even as an atheist, because i find it to believe if you give them respect, then they shall give you...do onto others, as they do onto you, and old saying i have grown up to actually respect myself. but today, im piss off at the religious community and what they did today.
A dear friend of the family, an old one, died and my mom and I decided to go to her funeral and pay or respects. I even attended her ceremony of life, or whatever they like to call it. As i was there, i did not pray with them, i did not sing with them, i close my eyes and tune away from everything they said about religion and did not pay attention to it. So as i left the church, yes, thats where it was, I was approach by the preacher, of course he ask at first "Why don't you come to church anymore?" and i answer "Church is not me, im not into this whole religious stuff." He then gave me that, "oh timothy, you should believe and take into jesus....blah blah" then he looks at me and ask, "By the way, why didn't you pray with us? or sing? Did you not care that much for Sarah?(not her name, don't wanna say her name to everyone, out of respect and all)" This driving me angry, but keeping my calm i answer "Its not that i don't care for her or anything, i just don't care for the religion she is part of. I came to pay her my respect, not to praise a false idol or anything. To give my respect to a religion that i don't care about or don't take part in." He responded "Its not a flase idol, its our only and true god, blah blah. Plus, you should pray that her family is ok." Finally i stated "To pray is to give disrespect to your religion, and i do not do that. I respect religion and to do what you are asking is not respecting them. Im an atheist, i do not and will not believe in anything like that, sorry." he tried to give me more of his "wisdom" but i refuse to listen anymore to that stuff, so i just walked away and left. I hate when something like that happens and hate when people look at me like im the devil because i refuse to believe what they do. To me, its disrespect to do that, to shun on me because i don't believe. It makes me wonder, should i started calling them dumbasses, idiots, retards or something for believing in a flying bearded man who takes a shit on them everyday, because if he was real, he fucking doesn't love them, thats for sure. well, im done ranting about my shitty day, how was your day? Any shittier then mine? or was it glorious then mine? Eh, like i care right now, rather go get high and go smacking some christians right now.
