Is it really a big fucking deal that I'm an Atheist and I sell Mary Kay? I mean all I'm trying to do is earn extra money in order to pay off my car and get Mary Kay half price (I've already been using MK for years).

Lately I've been kind of snickered at by my Atheist friends regarding me being part of such a blatantly Christian organization. They haven't forced me to pray and I haven't forced them to not pray around me.

Pffft, if you can't please everyone, you've got to please yourself I guess.

It's just funny how a bunch of so called "Free Thinkers" can be such fascists!

Also, *fear* isn't quite the word, either, is it? Even in the case of homophobes, don't they react to gays with something more like distaste or shunning than with fear, usually? Is there a short Latin suffix that means something like annoyance, being fed up, distaste, pity, disgust, repulsion and forbearance? I admit to feeling some of these at times, not about gays but about theists, but not to the extent that I could be labeled *A* person-who-always-feels-these-things. When it happens to me it's a fleeting, transient feeling.

Hello Darling, I just found you from a quick google search of Mary Kay and Atheist, as I am a gothic atheist mary kay consultant. I've made my customer base mostly of people with the same mindset, but I am wondering how you continue to deal with the other mary kay people without going psycho crazy. I also have a suspicion that there are others that feel the same way as we do and don't have the confidence to speak up, and I want to give them that confidence. I would appreciate any thoughts on the matter, feel free to reply or contact me directly at mistress_o_dark@yahoo.com. Sincerely, Heather

I used the thesaurus and have the following suggestions to replace the word "theophobic".

sacrophobic (sacrophobe, sacrophobia)
ecclesiastephobic (ecclesiastephobe, ecclesiastephobia)

The former is easier to pronounce but the latter is technically more correct . . .

:-)

There needs to be a new word coined for people who are afraid of religious people (in the same way "homophobic" represents people who are afraid of homosexuals). Atheists are open-minded: not close-minded. Those atheist friends of yours seem to be as judgmental as the bible-thumpers they mock.

Let's see . . . how about the word, "theophobic"? It's fear of God instead of religion, so it's not perfect but I can't think of a perfect word that also rolls of the tongue easily.

I work at a clinic that is own and run by very chrismatic christians. Virtually all of their clients are the same or worse. I'm constantly preached at by my patients.....less so by the docs. I often find myself gritting my teeth and smiling while thinking evil things. I desperatly need this job. So....until something better comes along....I'll put up with the BS. BTW....Mary Kay is good stuff. Wish I could afford it.

Maybe if you could more atheists to sell MK, that'll really get them talking.

I don't think it is any big deal, as long as you are happy doing it. We all have to share this world, and if each of us had to exclude doing business with everybody who didn't like us for one reason or another, then the economy would collapse. I mean, I do restrict my purchases on some products because of who or what they are associated with, but I don't go around just looking for things to boycott or avoid because someone who works with the company is a xtian.

However, I don't think Richard was criticizing MK per se in his post you commented on. I can't speak for him, but I think what he was referring to was the way in which a certain behavior and language develops within a sub-culture such as MK. My mother sold MK for a while, and she picked up the language and behavior of the other sellers/participants -- she mimed what she saw around her.

Memetic behavior can be obnoxious. Obviously, I'm gay, but I hate the memetic behavior of the gay communtiy. I don't like the effiminate behavior, the "Miss Thing" and "Girlfriend" way of speaking and acting. But that is not an outright rejection of homosexuality, of course.

I basically think that was Richard's point.
