Just ranting, ladies… this girl made me so mad this morning. We have been friendly acquaintances on FB for 4 years. I thought she was cool. Last night she posted on her page, “I wish I could eliminate all the people in my life who don’t have Jesus in theirs.”
Um, what? I’m not a believer but I have no problem with people who are. Can you imagine the shitstorm if I posted, “I wish I could eliminate all the people in my life who have Jesus in theirs.” People would be insulted, and rightly so.
I commented, “I’m not a believer so you can unfriend me if you want.” And she did. I was hoping she would realize my sarcasm was to illustrate that she was being super judgy and had excluded me in that judgment, which she probably didn’t realize–we had always enjoyed each other’s posts on pets and stuff and had fun. But I guess I’m a worthless piece of crap! Didn’t realize that to her Christianity is an exclusive club and if you’re not in you need to be “elminated.”
People like that are what’s wrong with the world. That judgment and exclusion only destroys families and relationships and has started many wars and civil disruptions! So disgusting.

@frogprincess: I totally agree. This is my exact problem with a lot of organized religions. I realize not all Christians or any other religion are like this… but I just can’t be apart of something like that. 🙁

Oh my god. People need to grow up – your religion is your own thing, why can’t you be Facebook friends with someone who isn’t of the same belief? Jeez.

@frogprincess: Wow! That’s awful. I’m a Christian (non-religious, non-denominational, no organized religion) and I would never say, think or feel in that way. That is one of the most anti-Christian things I’ve ever heard! Good grief, she sounds like a complete biotch, be glad you’re rid of her.
Jesus would not be pleased by her attitude, at all.

Yeah, that’s totally what Jesus would do… unfriend people who don’t believe in him. Not, you know, love them anyway. Totally >.>

Just off the wall guessing here, but I am betting something set her off. I’m not excusing it and it’s way too much FB drama for me, but I can understand lashing out on FB when you are hurting about something someone said or implied.

As a Catholic I have to say…. That was a very un-Christian thing for her to say/do. Honestly, I have found that my life is better without people like that in it. I’d consider it a blessing that she unfriended you. 😉

As a believer, that makes me sad. I wish everyone in my life had Jesus in their life, because I believe He makes my life so much better and I want to share that. But I generally don’t because no one wants to have it shoved at them. And acting like a judgmental asshat doesn’t make people think you’ve got it going on and want to get in on that.

@love108: I agree. It comes down to the individual, obviously… but people like her give Christians a bad name. Some of my best friends are Christians and would NEVER treat anyone like that and you know what? Those are the ones I want to talk to and be around and learn from. I’m not a believer, like I said, but if I were, I would want to be a positive example!
@Miss Otter: Seriously!! People are not cookie cutter versions of each other. I have got FB friends and RL friends who are all colors, beliefs and non-beliefs, political affiliations, sexual orientation, etc… we’re all very open and accepting of each other. Diversity is great, division is not.

WOW. That girl is a huge, steaming pile of hypocrisy. Wonder what her Savior thinks of her actions…

I have tons of FB friends that post things like that. I just keep truckin’. Occasionally my temper gets the best of me and I passive aggressively post ecards about being atheist. People love to hate ecards.

@almostmrsj: Thank you for that! Exactly. It’s like, geez, what church do you go to so I can be sure to avoid it?! LOL. I don’t want ANY of that! They do the world a disservice.
Agree with everyone else… from what I know of Jesus and Christian love, this is NOT a Jesus-like thing to do. Sooo many examples of that from the Bible, too.
