|That is a pretty freaking cool way to put it. I'm sorry some people were harsh with you, that's sort of sad. I've been pretty lucky in finding fairly open-minded Christians who aren't out to save me, as I am quite unsaveable but I am rather savory.
: I love it. I'm not only un-saveable, I'm even worse....
I'm Catholic. Oh yes, it's the anti-Christ, right here in your regular group of hs'ers.
I've only run against that kind of prejudice once, and I'm still friends with the woman. We became friends in 7th grade, but since we went to the same school and hung in the same groups, her parents couldn't really forbid us to see each other. Believe me, they tried. If she had been hs'd, there is no way in heck she'd have *ever* been allowed to associate with me, which would be a shame for me...she's an awesome person.
I am probably going to use a fundie Christian curriculum next year, and I belong to the Yahoo group for that curriculum. Most of the people are nice, but there are a few that...aren't. We study ancient Egypt first, and there are a few people *very* concerned about teaching their middle school aged kids about their religion. Um...isn't the ancient Egyptian religion pretty much dead? And it waaaayyy predates Christ...how does this cause a problem for Christians? I cannot figure it out...but it does. If it isn't in the Bible, it doesn't exist and didn't happen, apparently.
I don't have a problem with fundie Christians, atheists, pagans, wiccans. As long as you are reasonably pleasant to me and respectful of my religious beliefs, I'm happy. There just happen to be a handful of really obnoxious Christians who make everyone else look bad, which is a shame.
