Arrogance of Christianity

I recently attended a birthday party for a good friend of mine. I put aside my highly sensitive, introvert messages to myself (Like, ugh, people) and went because I care about her and I know she would come to mine. Her mom invited me and I  really did enjoy myself. The party was at a beautiful park on a lake. They rented out a gazebo close to the lake. Overall, it was very pleasant.

One incident stood out to me that illustrates the complete and utter arrogance of many Christians today. There was a group at the gazebo next to us called "Earth." (At least that is what the sign said.) I thought they looked cool and interesting. Immediately one person pointed out to me (in a very condescending tone) "Those people over there are worshipping Mother Earth." *eye roll I said nothing, but thought to myself "So fucking what?"

Just before we ate, everyone gathered and held hands and forced the group into a Christian prayer to thank God for the food. I awkwardly looked around in disbelief at how often I am subjected to being forced into religious rituals as an atheist.

Toward the end of the party, someone else said to me, again, condescendingly, "Did you see those crazy Mother Earth worshippers over there? I was going to go over and ask them if they were worshipping Jesus" Since I don't hide my facial expressions very well, she quickly added, "I mean I didn't though." All I said was "That's good."

Why do people (and by people I mean mostly Christians) think it's ok to force their beliefs on others, but don't recognize that others have a right to believe how they want? It is the ultimate example of Christian privilege. Think about this, Christians. Think. If you were suddenly told, during a birthday party, a work event, or really, anything, that the majority of Muslims there wanted to have a prayer, how would you feel? Awkard? Appalled that they would be arrogant enough to assume you want to pray to their God? Annoyed? Well, guess what? That is how others feel when you force them into your religious rituals. If you want to be allowed to worship as you please, then you MUST allow others to do the same.


Thanks for reading. I have been on a long break working for crappy places that sucked the life out of me and I am now taking time for myself to write and relax a bit. So, you will see more blogs from me in the future. Please share!

  1. They do it because they feel this is a country "founded on Christian principles" and Christianity is the true, American religion, so as an American why wouldn't you want to pray with us! Blech.

  2. Hello to you. (Can't seem to find your name on this page)

    To answer your question about bisexuality.
    Christians that's bisexual still enjoy Eternal Life.
    Because Jesus is the salvation.

    I was a prophet in 2016 / October / November / December.
    Where i stood begging at a robot ; with the 3 Hole trinity next to me. talking to me daily.

    You are welcome to read more about it here:
    https://xcorporatio5.wixsite.com/eternallife/prophet

    As part of the 12 000 cars that drive by at the robot and looked at the signs. There was 2 (may'be 4) lesbians too.
    And they shared a kiss after reading the commandments.

    The commandments doesn't revoke bisexuality; it revokes adultery.
    Adultery would be if you decided to cheat on your partner ( Any sexuality)

    If it's easier for you - Focus only on the New Testament as reading material. Currently there's over 2 billion Christians worldwide - Not most of them from America; but diverted across the World. God did the favour to visit me; i can't say if He will visit you; but he visits those on His own accord across the world. This does not mean you should feel helpless as not a chosen one.

    The force of Christianity to get other Non-Christians involved in their teachings is so that others are saved through salvation of Jesus Christ - Christians really care about others in as many ways as imaginable !


    You said your current situation sucked; But it wouldn't have sucked if you were a Christian - Would it ?

    I was homeless for 2 years; and a lot has improved in my life.
    Through the will of God.

    I hope you come to the conclusion to give the New Testament another go; do your research if you may. but know this your time is almost done in this world. Wouldn't it be better to spend it in Eternity surrounded by constant love ?

    I bid you fare well.

    Kind Regards,
    Chris

Love The Sinner, Hate The Sin

Many extreme Christians have phrases and comments that I consider beyond ridiculous. I often just ignore their sayings and move along. Howev...
