Most Christians don't seem to think I have the right to believe what I want. O.o I just pay them back. Most of the time I just ignore the discussion. However, I would consider myself a god basher.
You will find intolerance in any belief. Because, I would imagine, Christianity is the most prevalent where you are, you run into more intolerant Christians.
I also get bashed by Christians, and told all sorts of things.
I really do believe in god. I just don't want to admit it. It's cool to hate god.
I'm just an angry person, and I'll believe in god again some day.
I'm ate up with daemons, and I'll never be at peace.
I'm a bad person, so god doesn't love me anyway. It doesn't matter that I don't believe.
I just need my husband to slap me around and put me in my place, then I will see that go is there. (I couldn't believe this one)
One dude even tried to do an exorcism on me.
I've heard most of those, or varieties of them myself.
I've had my beliefs questioned as "Is that some kind of devil worship then?"
I've been told "You might think you're not still Christian, but you are", even though I stopped being christian over a decade ago.
I've been told "You were born Christian, therefore you have to stay Christian, whether you like it or not." Needless to say, that one didn't work either.
So, yes .. been there, done that.
I only bash when I get bashed. >.>
I haven't seen you getting bashed here, so I would prefer you extend equal courtesy to others.
Everyone has a right to their own beliefs and opinions. Whether you agree with them or not, whether you like them or loathe them, you will discuss them with a degree of courtesy.
That applies to everyone, in case you're feeling singled out right now.
Religion, like politics, is one of those topics that can turn nasty very easily. I prefer not to see that happening.
