Am I the only one who has this problem?
Lately, everyone I know seems to be getting Super-Religious. My parents are Catholic, but it was never a big deal that I didn't believe. But this past 6 months or so, they've been dropping Jesus bombs like crazy. My dad said that all my bad luck will go away if I just read one book of the bible. My mom said I was a "disappointment" because I don't believe.
And it's affected my friends, too. One good friend of mine has been writing Notes on Facebook every week about finding joy in worshiping god, one of my wife's friends thinks I and my daughter are possessed, and an old high school friend I recently reconnected with on Facebook is working with some church and writing a christian children's book. Oh, and one of my brothers is also a writer of christian fiction, and keeps dropping little snide remarks about my lack of belief.
I don't know what it is, why religion is such a big deal for everyone I know all of a sudden. It's kind of pissing me off!
