This is me getting gangbanged by christians. I tried to explain that I was brought up christian, not only in title, but in practice and study. Yet they insisted to quote john 3:16 and explain the story of jesus to me as though Id never heard the gospel before. I've been studying this mess for 16 years, I know my shit.

I stopped talking because they obviously wernt interested in anything I said. It was pointless, I was killed. Eventually they got bored of talking at me and walked off, patting themselves on the back for their efforts.

Christians are sometimes like animals; if you play dead, they might leave you alone.
I would like to say that I profoundly respect and sincerely admire plenty of Christians. If you dig on jesus, thats great, hes a likeable dude, just be cool.
I was able to catch one of these kids 'Zach' again under better circumstances. we're practically friends.

Y'know, this happens to me probably more than it should, and may have contributed to my lack of shits to give about god (or a lack thereof).

I grew up curious about the concept, did my research on various belief structures (ever read the bible at 10 with no real notion that people believe it's true? WILD book, man), and decided I didn't believe. Never bugged anyone else about it, don't talk down to those with faith, that's their thing and I'm cool with it.

Yet, when asked (and I make the idiot choice to answer simply and honestly), I get preached to by people who, by their so-called quotes, obviously didn't read the book NEARLY as well as I did... you grow to hate religious people.

Not religion itself, mind. Just... the people who spout it at you without having really absorbed anything they're saying.

It's like bumping into really harshly judgmental Christians. You have to wonder, did they read the same book you did?

I've been told that whole "people without Christ=drugs, sex, and money" thing before.

I laugh. I'm a webcomics artist. Those things are all foreign to me.

I don't like organized church. If you've got a faith, that's a personal thing.

Viciously headbutt one, jump over a chair screaming 'SATAN RULES', and run off in the confusion. You get to break someone's nose, they get more proof that non-God-lovers are crazy bitches, and everyone is satisfied.

I'm an agnostic, and I'm not gonna lie. It's a bit fun to watch the debates. Not the gangbang ones, though. Sorry bro. :V

There ain't any point trying to reason with them. Just causes frustration. They're impervious to reason.

But what really does work, so I've found... and feels good too... is if you play them at their own game. Try to convert them to worshipping the AEsir or something.
Tell them about Thor... all serious business like... It totally screws with their primitive little animal minds.
=D

the ol switcheroo?
you know whats really weird is I actually somehow managed to turn a couple people to God. I get caught up playing devils advocate, it becomes more compelling than repping for my actual philosophy.

Seriously? ...
And they weren't already?
I mean I thought that christianity was pretty much a standard thing over there in the states. Like more people on that bandwagon than off it.

theres a lotta different figures run by a lotta different standards, but its guessed that 80%-60% is christian. Its definitly a theme down here.

I've only been over there to america twice.

Once to DC and the other time to Arkansas. In the latter case I kept my mouth shut most of the time I was there... and it was fine. I didn't let on to any of them that I'm a Nihilo-Daoist, and it was totally fine... (not that they'd know what that is anyway)...
