Dealing with prosletyzing Christians
    #4340079 - 06/26/05 08:51 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Just thought it'd be funny to hear of your interactions with prosletyzing christians, as I had a pretty humerous encounter last night.

As we were leaving Electric Daisy Carnival, a big carnival/rave, there were christians passing out rants on paper, ranting on a sound system, generally harassing everyone with loads of negativity... 'you want to go to hell?' and what not.

One of them came over to me and my girlfriend, rapping all this negative scripture in our faces, full of lakes of fire and what not...
So I started singing Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast

"666, the number of the beast! Hell and Fire were spawned to be released! :hellfire: "

The guy looked at me like I was insane, lol.  "You just uttered the devil's number... do you want to go to hell?" :lol:

I threw him a healthy dose of the goat  :rockon: and kept on singing and rockin out to Maiden.

I guess the ideal approach is to be polite, say that I'm extremely happy with my spiritual situation, and wish them well, but sometimes ya just can't resist having a little fun with these people  :tongue2:

I actually did make pretty good friends with one of the prosletyzers at my school... some of them sincerely want to help people find the right path, unfortunately they can't accept the validity of any others. 

The dudes last night, though, were just on a sadistic jesus power trip.    :thumbdown:

I'm a waitress.  Two older ladies came in and sat down.  One was wearing a giant golden pin that I could read from across the room that said "I :heart: Jesus"  The :heart: was encrusted with pink glass.

So I bring them some water and ask what can I get for them today. 

LADY 1:  What do you suggest for a good appetizer?
ME:  Pita chips are pretty yummy.  They come with a great dip.
LADY 1:  Are they salted?
ME:  Yes, they are lightly salted.
LADY 1:  :eek: Oooooooh.  I don't know, then.  What do you think, Maeve?  What would the lord do?
MAEVE:  Well, the bible says that we should eat salt sometimes...  (This is where she pulls out a purse size bible and starts looking for a particular passage....)
ME:  How about I give you ladies a few minutes to decide?  I'll BRB.

:what:

When they were leaving, the lady with the mini-bible signalled for me to come close and she whispered in my ear "I really like your little eyebrow ring.  My grandson has one in his lip.  Never fear the devil within you....Jesus loves you and he'll always look out for you"

Again, I was like :what:.

Some people are so strange.  I'm sure some people say the same thing about me, tho.

Actually, no.  They left me like .75 cents.  Although I am fairly certain that they thought it was a generous tip.  :shrug:

Now that's mean. If they bother you, I could see messing with them a little bit for laughs, but come on now.

this reminds me of when i was in highschool. we had a take home final in Calc BC and me and 2 others were in an IHOP working on it all night. one of the guys was wearing a "I baby seals" shirt and this guy walked up and said, 'you think thats funny?' and started giving us bullshit. It seemed we upset him even more by laughing. He left and came back 3 minutes later and started giving us more hippy bullshit. Anyway that was a fun night.

oh, and i baby seals

pfffft...Where I'm from, Everyone clubs seals. :smirk:

p.s.  cool story Bomb,  I used to live with a born again christian, that spent an absurd amount of time and effort to 'save' me...when he wasn't busy trying to save me he was the biggest asshole around.  I had to bail that prick out of many a bar fight because he turns into an asshole after a few drinks...guess he was actually the one that needed saving.

Were you a Morman?

All religions that require you to believe in something there is no evidence of are bullshit and should be avoided like the plague. Anything that espouses blind faith and unquestioning belief should be discarded immediately.


--------------------
So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

I've never had problems with the Christians who would like to talk about religion but respect your desire not to if you have no wish to get into such matters. Believing in Jesus as Christ and spreading the love he wanted is one thing, condemnding and forcing conversion onto people is another. Sounds like those ladies were a bit passionate about their beliefs, but weren't condeming you. She said Jesus was looking out for you, to me that should be taken as something like "the energy that guides us all loves all of us." No stress.

Oh they were really sweet old ladies and I'm not condeming them for consulting the bible before they ordered and appetizer.

Hey, to each thier own. They weren't pushing crap on me or anything, they were just hungry.

I find that christianity is 'exposed' to me in waves. I went to church a few times as a kid because some of my friends went and I wanted to be a part of what they were doing. I was about 7 years old. In Sunday School I learned that black people are different and it's unacceptable to wear jeans to church. That's it.

My mom bought me a kids bible with those really thin rice pages and I thought it was awesome. I pretended it was a spell book and my sister and I would collect rocks and different types of dirt and cast spells on my parents to make Kraft Dinner for supper and buy us candy.
