People think I don’t know how atheists feel or how they think. I do. I’ve heard it all before. People act like I don’t see what they write. I do see everything they write. If I’m not agreeing with them, there’s a reason why.
- They don’t believe in God because they don’t understand why a God would allow bad things to happen all over the world.
- They don’t believe in God because life didn’t go their way and they expect a happy life to be handed to them.
- They don’t believe in God because some traumatic event in their lives happened.
- They don’t believe in God because they didn’t get the president they wanted.
- They don’t believe in God because they haven’t found their future spouse.
- **They think all Christians are out to make money just because Joel Osteen got rich off of promoting Christianity. He doesn’t define all of us. By the way, whenever I go to church services, no one forces me to donate. So clearly, the church is not out to make my money. I don’t have to donate if I don’t want to. It’s there for those that want to donate.
- **They think religion is bad because of what some Catholic priests do to children.
They don’t like being generalized, yet why do some atheists think it’s okay to generalize all religions?
In fact, I was personally friends with one a while back but their negativity was toxic to my personal growth I am achieving so I cannot have anyone like that in my life. I set an example for those who seem lost and or confused about life and when I see people not taking my advice, I don’t need their negative energy bogging ME down.
I tell people what. I have had all those things happen to me in my life, and yet I’m not sitting here thinking there is no hope for the future. People my age are married by now having a family. I’m in my early thirties. I often wonder why I wasn’t blessed when people keep telling me how I’m such a great girl yet in the past no one did anything to keep me until now. I don’t date someone just to have any boyfriend. If I date it’s because I’m interested in that person who is interested in me and we both see a future together. It’s not because I can’t be dated. It’s because I’m waiting for The One. I believe I have found the person I would like to share my life with.
He has the same family values as me (we believe abortion is wrong and having a child when we can’t afford our own selves is also wrong. Children never asked to be born into this world and they don’t deserve to suffer just because of people’s bad choices). He’s reliable, responsible and he has been there for me through my most difficult times as a friend. Other guy friends abandoned me when my life got tough so they cannot be counted on in tough times. This one has been with me through everything in the past two years. He’s been with me through job losses, he still hung out with me when I had no job and no money. He doesn’t ask me to do any favors for him. He deserves me. When the time is right, I believe things will happen for us.
I’ve noticed many people who are atheists and democrats suffer from depression. Does it go hand in hand that democrats make people depressed? I haven’t ran into an unhappy Republican and even if a Republican is unhappy, they can at least cope with life and hope there is a better future for them. Democrats and/or atheists often seem hopeless, depressed and suicidal with their LGBT community because they don’t like that people won’t accept their ideologies. I’ve ran into gay Republicans who seem a lot happier being a Republican.
I’ve ran into people who don’t accept my ideologies and instead of acting like a person who hates the world, I choose to surround myself with people who think like me in these ideologies.
Some things people can disagree with me on like whether or not pineapple should belong on pizza. When it comes to religion and politics, anything I say about that is not up for debate.
