I don't know about creepy, but I was a bit worried for a friend when she told me that Satan was trying to kill her to keep her from teaching the gospel to children at AWANA. She determined this from two incidents that happened when she was heading to AWANA, one of which was she was in an accident. The second, I can't remember.
AWANA is an evangelical youth indoctrination program franchised to churches. It's supposed to make learning about Jesus fun. Unfortunately for them, the only way to do that would be to play up the zombie angle. For some reason, churches don't seem to go for that.
In 8th grade a fellow classmate was run over by a bus afterschool. Myself and other classmates were horrified to have actually seen his body crushed and lifeless in the street. Days later a classmate who grew up just around the corner from him said to me quite casually that he was going to hell anyway because he was rude in an arguement with his mother.
I know this is not creepy in the usual standard, but to hear anyone say anything this stupid because of their biblical brainwashing kind of gave me the heeby jeebies. I was dating this fundie girl for a short period and invited her over to my friends house where we converse about more interesting topics than what is the hot new show on t.v. So we got into a discussion and I asked this girl if she believed in the big bang. She said, and i quote, "Yeah isn't that what killed the dinosaurs?" I of course laughed for a good period of time until I realized that she was actually serious. I then laughed even harder before I became very sad that a girl in college could actually be that clueless. I ended the relationship that night. To bad too. She was a FREAK!
"can you find me any evidence of a non-activist (or celebrity) being asked a similar question an saying "well, i'm an atheist'? i can't remember anything like it, but please let me know if there are other examples. "
"Mindy, I was speaking with a coworker of mine about 30 mins ago who lives in Rockford. She said no rain there last night but a couple of flights to O'Hare were diverted to the Rockford airport. It was fairly nasty here. "
