This is spurred by Facebook, of course. The land of things that irritate me. Sigh. It’s not directed at any one person, just the overall bible thumping that is STILL in my goddam feed, despite my best efforts to eradicate it. Ugh. This will irritate some of you. Sorrynotsorry.
I really hate it when I see friends fall into the Bible thumper trap. “It’s all God’s plan” or “It’s His will” makes me want to vomit. I know it’s judgy, but dammit, it’s the passivity of it all that chafes my ass. How about DOING something rather than preach about God’s will?
I find that people who preach about God and Jesus are the ones feeling generally victimized – hence wishing that some outside force will take care of them. While I can understand the urge for this, it doesn’t make it any more palatable for me. I also dislike the hypocrisy of people who suddenly find Jesus when something traumatic happens.
I’m an agnostic most days, atheist others, but on ALL days, it irritates me to hear people preach about God and Jesus. LOOK at this country and what that superstitious crap has gotten us. It’s the 21st fucking century. Can we PLEASE believe in science rather than folk tales? Can we PLEASE not refer to a book FULL of hypocrisy and bullshit as some sort of guide? Can we stop expecting help from a magic man in the sky?
If you want to be a Jesus freak and/or bible thumper, that’s fine, but just know that I will probably think less of you for it. I can’t help it. It just seems so childish to me. Look around and see the BULLSHIT that religion has brought us. Grow up and take charge of your life. There is no magic man in the sky. It’s just US, here on this rock, living out our 70-80 years. Do the best you can, do ALL that you can and LIVE! Stop wishing for a man in the sky to rescue you. ARGH.
Again, not directed towards any one person. Just my observations. Complaint form to the right –>.
