Where Is The Christian Forgiveness?

In my last blog post, I mentioned the reaction from my Christian friend to the atheist quotes I posted. There was quite a bit of back and forth on Facebook with basically ended with her saying, rather smugly, that I certainly don't seem very happy now that I've abandoned religion.
