This is a LOL and a real story; a sad one with a happy ending I hope.
Right now I'm looking after an alcoholic neighbour. This person has the DTs (bad) and is about at death's door - the whole estate is gunning for them.
Funny how all these Christians around me have shunned this human being and the biggest goddam atheist in the area - the only one who actually admits to it - is the only one prepared to help!
I don't want a medal - but, by god, I'm going to slap these bastards with the truth if I get this person through this.
Christians in name only. Continue to be good for goodness sake because we can.
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
- Mohandas Gandhi
Good for you. I hope he makes it through.
Proof that good humans do exist. Thanks.
ther so judgemental its sickening........
Does anyone need Xian morality more than the typical Xian?
. . ."but, by god", . . . Coming from an atheist, even if you don't mean it, is something I can't quite understand. I know it's just an expression whose meaning infers that the person saying it has a strong commitment. However, I wouldn't have to think twice about using it. How could you have overlooked it? However, if you meant to use the expression in some ironic way, well then maybe that's OK. What did you mean?
Recently in an email I used the word "blessed" in connection with the healthy genes I've inherited. I qualified its use by indicating in parentheses that I didn't mean it in any religious sense.
