Amusing Responses You Got From People When You Came Out About Being An Atheist.

I thougt It would be interesting to see some of the more comical responses people have received upon coming out. I'll start things off with my favorite.

I was about 16 and a guy in class found out that I didn't believe in god and he came up to me and asked

Boy: "So do you really not believe in god"

Me: "No."

Boy: "So.... You worship the devil?!"

I got this one in one form or another many times..... Gotta love the bible belt! :)

When I told my parents I was an atheist their first reaction was "who have you been talking to?!?!"

As if I couldn't come up with that conclusion on my own, someone had to INFLUENCE me. It's sad, really.
I know, when my parents found out I was atheist, first they blamed my ex for being so bad to me. Then they blamed my second husband for putting false thoughts into my head. It took them a long time to figure out that it was my own thinking that got me here!
My parents never stopped blaming my husband too, and my dear old communist father-in-law. It never occurred to them that I was an atheist long before I met my husband.
Me: Dad, I'm an atheist

Dad: Yeah, I know. ...And?

Thanks, Dad. I love you.
awesome parenting!
"WTF" - my aunt
When I was @ 8 years old my father, who was at that time an Atheist though I wasn't told until after the divorce, was in a car accident. He broke all of his limbs and was in a coma. Once he got out of the hospital he converted to Catholicism. A few years after that, and after the divorce, I came to the realization that there is no god. I told my mother this, and she said "Look at what happened to your father for not believing." I don't think that she thought that one through to well, because I asked her how that made sense. God wanted my father to believe in him, so he almost killed him? Add the fact that after my father woke up from the coma he tried to cut off his own leg, shot a gun out of the back door saying "That guy called me an asshole." at three in the morning and accused my mother of not being my mother. It appeared to me from that point on that people who believe in a big sky daddy were insane.
I've gotten the "you worship the devil" thing too!
I was in my mid-30's when I started the path that turned me atheist. My brother's wife asked me why I felt the need to do this, and I told her things weren't working the way they were, and I wanted to make a change in beliefs. She then dismissed me with a "oh, you're just going through a mid-life crisis." yea, whatever.
Me: So what's the deal, do you have a problem with me being an Atheist?

Idiot: Yes I do. I can't support you in something like this. I serve the Lord *the guy is a raging hypocrite who doesn't read the bible, hasn't set foot in a church in FOREVER, and only prays when he needs something* and plus you've changed.

Me: What?

Idiot: You're different now, and being an Atheist is probably why all that stuff happened to you *lost my 3rd pregnancy while my husband was deployed*. You need to find a church and get your life right *oh the irony there!*.

Me: You know it wasn't that nice knowing you jackass, goodbye.

And we haven't spoken since. I'm still confused as to how in one day I managed to go from "the best mother and wife" he knew to the devil. But being an Atheist seems to carry magical powers I guess.
My neighbor has the same reply no matter what question I ask her. It is true because the bible says its so. I asked if only Christians can " be saved " and she says you must come to the lord Jesus to be saved. I try to avoid her because when she sees me she keeps telling me that god is calling me. She is a nice lady so I did not give her my usual sarcastic reply.
Hey John....When she tells you that "god is calling", You should respond with the following:

"Tell god that I screen my calls...and I'm not picking up!"

If you say it with a smile in your voice, she may not be too offended. If she can't see the humor in it, then she's truly beyond hope. :)
