So I made a comment on some random christian FB page that was pretty anti-religious. I thought I had my activity feed set to private....I was wrong.
So one friend that is a christian commented pretty strongly against what i said. I replied to him with lots of information and evidence for what I was saying. He later text saying ya you have a point. Sorry I didnt mean to sound like a jerk. So I salvaged that relationship. However, my friend (friend S) who hasnt been to church in 5+ years, never reads the bible, never mentions religious anything apparently got really offended.
I saw friend S at another friends house not knowing he read my facebook. I noticed he was acting really weird and flat out ignored something I said to him not related. I went home thinking whats wrong with him, is he mad at me for something? I texted him the next day asking if he wanted to hang out. No response. Well later that day my other friend tells me that friend S texted him saying "Did you know Turbo SS hates the bible?!?!? Is he an atheist?" I never even said i hate the bible in my post.
I am pretty disappointed in him. I thought he really didnt care about religion. My wife is chinese and an atheist and he knows that. He has never had any issue socializing with her. He is always very nice to her. He is a really good friend that I have known for about 16 years. Will bend over backwards to help you, very nice and fun to hang out with. I guess I hit the wrong button somehow.
So now I am thinking Great who else saw this post? hopefully no coworkers. I don't want to get blacklisted at work. Second, it makes me concerned if my believer friends find out what they will say? Looks like if they find out, I might lose a slew of friends based on what friend S did. But I have hope since my friend mentioned earlier retracted his statement after I gave him a logical conclusion. I guess now I have to play the waiting game and see if I end up having trouble with friends and work.
Advice appreciated. Not sure how to handle the situation with friend S. I guess I have to just let him go. ya ya i know if he is mad about this he isn't a true friend and I should forget him. Easier said than done. I think if I had a chance to explain he might loosen up his opinion.
