Every time I post a link or a quote about/from an interesting athiest or astronomer that has something to do with refuting creationism, or the universe in general, one of my christian family members/friends ends up getting offended and angry at me on facebook. Yet I tolerate all their bible quotes, they can believe what they want, why cant' I?
The part that makes this clutch is that all my athiest friends end up swarming comments on the status.
I always laugh.
Phil knows what I'm talking about hahaha. He saw it happen yesterday.
for the record, I'm not trollin on facebook, I just find cool facts/quotes and post them, that's all.
If people are writing a bunch of Bible quotes on FB all day, I guess that can be a bit much. That said, I can see why people take offense to it. There are a lot of ways to look at it, but I can completely see why people would think you're knocking them down a few pegs. Personally, I'm a fan of people mainly keeping that shit to themselves. Do you have strong faith in your religion? Good, shut up about it and try not to sit there and make it like you're King Dong because you believe in the Lord. Do not believe in anything? That's fine, but don't sit there and shit on the people that might have some faith.
I did see your friends remark and I was just slightly tempted to reply to it myself but I thought "No, I won't go there." One thing that drives me just as nuts as some crazy Christian preaching bullshit are the people on the complete opposite end of the spectrum.
Oh yeah, that video your buddy posted about the God Hates Fags people is pretty awesome. I watched the whole thing this morning at work. The part where the little kid gets egged is so weird. I could tell I felt just like how the documentary dude felt. It's like "Good, thats what these people get. But shit, a little kid got hit.. he sort of deserves it, but he doesn't. Shit, what do I do now?"
edit: he doesn't get egged, he gets a drink thrown at him.
