A Testimonial* (Atheist and Out!)

Even as little as six months ago, I used to feel like everyone's religion was their prerogative. How did I have the right to say that I'm right and other people can't have this strange fantasy called God and religion when it makes them feel so good about themselves and their lives? (All ridiculous fanatics excluded.) I didn't think there was any god, but I didn't feel the need to push that on others.

But then I changed my mind.

Now, when I become friends with a new person, I get really disappointed if I find out that they love God and God's holiest of holy ways. Oh, you think Jesus is the way and the truth and the life? You have lots of bible quotes scattered about your Facebook profile? I guess you believe in fun old storybooks and fairy tales, yeah? Well... umm... it was... nice to meet you. (runs away)

While I try my damnedest to respect people, it's really hard to respect damning, nonsensical beliefs.

Also, Carly is double smexxxy.

So if we had met 2 years ago when i still believed in God, you wouldn't be my friend?

It's a lot easier to change a friend's mind than an enemy's.
