Okay, before I go asleep, I'm just going to post something real quick. In my class last week, Audio/video, we began our third project, in which we must make a biz/service commerical. Now, the way this works is, we are team into a group of 4, each given a role, so far I been camera man and editor. Well this project I'm talent (would of been director this project, but that project was dropped and I can't do my zombie interview *sadness*). The point to this post is that the director, which is charge of the project; script, location, what to cover. Is a full blown, I'm a save you Christian, which isn't bad, if he didn't do stuff over religion for every project. He brought up the idea for this project, which would of involve us to travel to a church and do a thing over a man being save by "God" and entering even to try and promote the church. I looked at him and plain and said "You know my religious views on things...I have none. I rather keep it out of this project and stick to something else, especially since im the talent this project." He got angry, but agree, and storm off, i just walked back over to the computer and continuing, not caring. Well unfortunately, he decided to tell everyone there that i was a self hating satanist, that bash his religion, I try to explain to people I'm not, I'm an atheist, I didn't saying anything about his religion and I just don't care for the idea. They all didn't listen and took up for him, we still not doing the project, but people are hating me because of a lie he told everyone, just to get their support.

Is it wrong for me to want to slice his throat open and bash him in the head for it? Gah, this is why i hate working with people in groups, never know who you going to offend due to some honest and truthful statement...especially about religion. Well peace.

Dealing with irrational people is incredibly frustrating. I don't blame you for wanting to lash out at the sheer incompetence and lies spread by that guy.

I like the idea of going to the teacher, but how reasonable do you think it would be to talk with him one on one about being uncomfortable promoting a belief that you do not have? Maybe you could bring up the idea that he wouldn't expect a Buddhist, Hindu, or Muslim to promote a Christian church, so suggesting that you do it is just as inappropriate. Similarly, it was inappropriate of him to spread lies about what you believe.

If your school has a mediator or councilor, it might be a good idea to sit down with that person and the guy and discuss it. That way the kid wouldn't be able to storm off again and would be forced to calmly listen to what you have to say. Just an idea!!

 

Good luck!
