Went on a date last night...and all was going well until she mentioned two words I wasn't expecting. "Youth group". It was then I found out this girl was super christian. Now that may not seem like a big deal to some people, but to me, well, to categorise myself, I'd say I'm 'super-unchristian'. Not like I go around beheading children and slaying goats, just that I am about as agnostic as they come. My philosophy on life is just to be completely honest with everyone, and let people live how they want to. After spending a mere 2 years at a presbyterian private school, I really have issues with many aspects of religion. Most of the atheist people I knew were much nicer than that wholly fake 'christians' at the school, and to be honest in general I don't think that anyone can live up to the church's standards (and you only need to look at the history of christianity to see that). So really I feel bad, because I pride myself on being nice to everyone, not being judgemental etc, and accepting other peoples' beliefs...but it disappoints me to know that I couldn't be myself around her. Generally my sense of humour is one that jokes about everyone, no exceptions, and I would just have a fear of insulting her or her family if I am being myself. And there's always my fear that she would try to convert me, which would get me pretty angry, to be honest. Just wondering if anyone else has had an experience like this...from either side of the fence. _______________________________ If this post offends anyone then...well I'd be surprised...but moderators can delete it if they want.
