Warning: angry post
« on: June 18, 2012, 04:00:13 AM »
Dunno if this belongs here but I am in a VERY BAD MOOD and I need to vent some. I was just minding my own business when a f**king Mormon approached me in the street and asked if I had heard of jeebus and the church of the latter day saints. Well, out of nowhere, I just let fly. How dare this person try to preach to me his weird and frankly insane ideas. What if I turned the tables and started announcing loudly that there is no god(s), that it's all bollocks and everyone is being duped?? How long do you think I might last until I get asked to move along by the authorities?

F**king religion. I damn well hate it. Keep it in your home and in your church and OUT OF THE SCHOOLS AND PUBLIC ARENA and F**KING POLITICS AND LAWS and maybe, just maybe, we can all get along. And for f**ks sake, LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF IT until they can make their own informed opinion.

Glad to get that off my chest. I don't really feel much better but it's a start. Once this world is finally cleansed of the evil that is religion (and it will happen, one day), human society will be much better off.

P.S. Pope John, I hope you BURN IN HELL. Not that hell exists, but the sentiment remains.

Jesus Christ dude. Do you always scream at people for saying stupid things to you?

This post is just terrifying.

If you started yelling at the top of your lungs in a public place you would probably just look like a fool, just like he would. The other day on my campus there was a guy who kept yelling "Adulterers! Will! Burn! In! Hell!", replacing the first word with various other sinners. Thankfully that day there was a water slide (typical Arizonans) that had people hosing it off so they came and sprayed him down good.

There is a difference between coming to you and having a little talk about something he believes will save your mortal soul (whether you believe it or not) and barking it into your face getting spit in your hair.

Uh, no dude, I did not scream at him. Just said in no uncertain terms terms that his protelising was very unwelcome. When I walk down the street I do not like to be preached at. Just as I would not preach my ideas on how eating meat is wrong. All I ask is leave me alone. I don't think that is an unreasonable request.

I can understand the frustration, Mormons can be pretty persistent too and I too hate being stopped for people to tell me that my beliefs/non-beliefs are wrong, that I should change them, that I should accept their way and not only that but I will suffer for an eternity in pain and anguish if I don't accept their view. To be honest, when I'm minding my own business, that is pretty damn rude, but I'm a polite person so I deal with it politely, but none-the-less it's irritating. I suspect if as atheists we started doing that people would get offended and even tell us to fuck off and we'd be called all kinds of tolerant.

We used to have a sign on the door warning these people to leave us alone. The pizza guys always laughed, but people stopped coming by so all our new neighbors thought we were crazy for leaving it up.

Now Mormons knock on our door all the time. A few weeks ago another sect came to try to get my daughter enrolled in VBS (Vacation Bible School) they were prob Baptist.

I'm contemplating putting my crazy sign back up. Perhaps you could turn it in to a T-Shirt so people will leave you along? I didn't make this sign, I found it on a google search, but it's what I've used on my door for countless years.

Thank you for considering my point of view; however wrong it may be to you.

Certainly not! You do not OWE anybody your time or attention- especially those who are being rude, yet accuse you of rudeness for not dropping everything just for them! What ego.

Lomolo, regardless of your opinion about the harmlessness of the conversation- nobody OWES you a conversation- THAT is the whole point! I DO NOT accept demands, and if I don't have the right to say "no", then it's a demand. Sorry that needed to be pointed out.

This is such a strange thing to say... obviously you shouldn't have to talk to anyone, but I don't see what's upsetting you about people wanting to talk to you. They think they're doing you a favor, misguided or not. You can always just ignore them or give them the hand, I think they'll get the picture.

You said they just approached you and tried to talk to you about their stupid faith. I don't see any indication that they were being particularly pushy about it. Just say no.

I don't see where you're getting this "demands" idea from what he posted. Or that they wouldn't take no for an answer. Seems to me like he was having a bad day and took it out on some people who were only trying to help, even if annoyingly so.

When I was in grade 7 I had a good friend who happened to be a JW. She was highly intelligent and a very funny person. However, one day she confided in me that she was seriously concerned for my mortal soul. I spent a few sessions with her where she explained to me the JW doctrines, and yet, I had to let her down by explaining that it was all just rubbish to me. Of course, being my friend, I let her down carefully. We remained friends until we parted ways at the end of grade 10 when all JWs leave school and prepare for the 'second coming'. So sad. She could have been so much more.


We used to have a sign on the door warning these people to leave us alone. The pizza guys always laughed, but people stopped coming by so all our new neighbors thought we were crazy for leaving it up.

Now Mormons knock on our door all the time. A few weeks ago another sect came to try to get my daughter enrolled in VBS (Vacation Bible School) they were prob Baptist.

Ha! Reminds me of a sign I had on my front door during uni - "Please leave your motivation at the door and don the cap of apathy".

A couple of Mormons knocked on the door and said "Does that mean you want us to go away?"

Classic.

Last time some Mormons talked to me I told them I had seen a good movie about Mormons called "Latter Days". I neglected to mention that it is a very positive gay film that isn't quite so friendly towards the Mormon faith.

That remined me of a real life situation. Sorry a bit long and off topic.

The following occurred when Bush Jr was in office and he had two wars raging.
 
First I need to describe my co-worker and her husband. They were Bush Jr Republicans beyond the max. She was a Nurse and he was a Colonel in the Army. No matter what you said in a negative slant, no matter how trivial and even if valid and proven, they would deny it or come up with some (strange) reasoning which made your point null and void. These folks were so narrow sited it was bewildering that that were actually successful in life.

One day my co-worker (Mary) was describing the movie her and her husband decided to see over the weekend. She said they looked at the listings and choose one with a patriotic title. She became very indignant at this point and said she couldn’t believe America would let movie theaters show a movie like Fahrenheit 911 (Michael Moore).

I was stunned listening to her to describe about the eggs hitting Bush’s Limo and how they doctored the film to portray our President like that. She said they left after the next 10 minutes. I was dazed and confused but recaptured my poise and;

I explained to her the movie was a pretty big controversy (at the time) and it was all over the news and in the papers. She told me her and her husband didn’t usually pay attention to the news or read the newspapers. I explained had she been aware of current events, by reading and listening to news sources, she might have avoided that blunder. She just waved her hand in my face and made a grunting noise.
 
I caught this women several times changing the “official work schedule” to benefit her around holidays and her vacations, of course that meant she was screwing someone else. Got me once with it, then I made sure I was there the minute the schedule was posted before any unauthorized changes could be made. YUP, you guessed it, she was a devote Catholic.

Dunno if this belongs here but I am in a VERY BAD MOOD and I need to vent some. I was just minding my own business when a f**king Mormon approached me in the street and asked if I had heard of jeebus and the church of the latter day saints. Well, out of nowhere, I just let fly. How dare this person try to preach to me his weird and frankly insane ideas. What if I turned the tables and started announcing loudly that there is no god(s), that it's all bollocks and everyone is being duped?? How long do you think I might last until I get asked to move along by the authorities?

F**king religion. I damn well hate it. Keep it in your home and in your church and OUT OF THE SCHOOLS AND PUBLIC ARENA and F**KING POLITICS AND LAWS and maybe, just maybe, we can all get along. And for f**ks sake, LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF IT until they can make their own informed opinion.

Glad to get that off my chest. I don't really feel much better but it's a start. Once this world is finally cleansed of the evil that is religion (and it will happen, one day), human society will be much better off.

P.S. Pope John, I hope you BURN IN HELL. Not that hell exists, but the sentiment remains.


Wow, thinking like that will get no where, won't help the atheist movement at all. He was probably born into a Mormon family, he's convinced that that exists without any doubt, and he's right. You can't hate someone because they were born to believe something, it's just wrong and makes you not understand people. Maybe some of the mega church owners deserve to be locked up, but definitely no one deserves to burn in hell, not the pope himself. So having that attitude will not help, ever.
I strive to simply just make sense.
