This thread prompted me to register on this site actually.
My sister who remains in the evangelical church myself and my other, middle sister have both left, has said to me delightful things such as:
'You're going to get such a shock when you die'.
and when I said I wasn't a christian anymore, she once replied
'Yes you are' which is even more offensive than the previous statement.
Charming, cheers sis! Good job I still love her huh.
I agree that she is referring to that. It reminds me of a time several years ago (when my mother sensed that I was moving away from religion) when she said, "You're gayness doesn't affect your salvation." Like that was going to make a difference. And it is somewhat insulting, because I know that when she says stuff like that, she is relying on the "fact" that my sins can be forgiven. Great. A big part of who I am is a sin. Nice.
She hasn't pushed it since then. I feel she is afraid of what will come out of my mouth if she does. And she should be afraid:)
This isn't the most disturbing by far, but it is the most memorable. I was 7 and hit a ball into a neighbors yard, the scary lady that all the kids thought was "a witch". I look around and don't see anyone, run to grab the ball and she seriously pops up from behind a bush and tells me that, "Jesus lives in the flowers and he is watching everything you do!".
She had a really nice yard and I think she was scared I was going to ruin her azaleas or something and I guess the Jesus security system is cheaper than ADT, which as I understand does not keep kids off your lawn.
Another incident was in an online class, I think it was a philosophy class but every class from this school was filled with religious fruits who made everything about god and Jesus. We had to debate "evolution vs. creationism" (man, I am so pissed that school got one semester tuition from me!), and at one point I said, "Well if god made everything then who made god?" His exasperated reply, "Well obviously God's father!" Obviously! Thanks for clearing that up!
My friend was on dialysis. I was with him when a kidney came through! I was so happy, jumping up and down for him. He told the lady he would have to call her back. I was perplexed.
"God will heal me," he said.
I heard him call her back and HE GAVE UP A KIDNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went outside and puked and quit talking to him.
Did you obtain a restraining order?
