I Am Tired of Holier-than-thou Religious People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 768 People

    There are many reasons

    why God shouldn’t have called you. But don’t worry, you’re in good company. Moses stuttered, Hosea’s wife was a prostitute, Jacob was a liar, David was an adulterer and a murderer, Solomon was too rich, Abraham was too old, David was too young, Peter was afraid of death...

    Well it's Christmas with my dad's family today,

    and that means I'm stuck in the same building as my aunt... my self-righteous, holier-than-thou, "good Christian woman" hypocrite of an aunt that I am embarrassed to be related to. I swear it's going to take all my self-control to not rip her a new one and tell her where to...

    I Am Indeed

    I will never be able to acquaint myself with religious people. We're just polar opposites. I can only handle so much bullshit before I snap and I would say and do a lot more if I could do so without some type of law intervening. They prefer to lead a life of dominion, they're...

    Everyday Of My Life

    So I'm openly non-religious, and openly bisexual in a small minded, all Christian town. So of course, I'm openly mocked, scorned, hated by most. What I fail to understand is why people think that everything I do is now controlled by the devil, whether I am volunteering or getting...

    It's sad to say but there is no one personally

    in my life, especially church leaders, whom I respect, admire or want to emulate. They are poor examples to non-christians. As a Christian I learned long ago to look to God not to men. Hippocrits will never turn me away from my relationship with God. That's just an excuse to...

    One thing I'm learning through my journey with

    the Norse gods is respect. Yes Vikings are known for their war like culture but they lived by the all fathers blood and the nine noble virtues. If they went to a foreign land they learned of the local peoples god(s) that's something the crusades should have done.

    Legalistic Pride

    In Jesus' day, they were called Pharasies. They were more concerned with outside appearance, rather than inward attitude. Genuine Christians think as follows: When I say...."I'm a Christian".....I'm not shouting......that I'm clean livin....I'm whispering....I was lost...

    So Come Out Ahead

    Unfortunately it's not likely we will ever rid our society of such people.  But we can all come out ahead by killing them with smiles, tact, and good manners, then clearing out as fast as we can.  Those kind of people love audiences.  If there'e no audience, there...

    Rammed Down Your Throat!

    There are few things I like rammed down my throat, and religious fanatics are the very least, as well as political elitists. Religion is the dogmatisation of a sound spiritual idea, which results in so stagnation of purpose and sight. It's Gods honest truth! It's in the...

    Pride Comes Before A Fall

    When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living.  I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven. When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need God to be my guide...

    Your Convictions Aren't Helping.

    Don't get me wrong. I love my husband. That said, his beliefs about God, church, and spirituality drive me nuts. The guy has OCD and he grew up in two legalistic conservative denominations, so I understand why he's legalistic now. He recognizes it sometimes, and he lets me call...

    I don't like the word religion.

    This word brings up many negative connotations. What I have is an intimate and personal relationship with my heavenly Father God who created me, His son Jesus who paid for my sin and gave me His righteousness, and His Holy Spirit who lives in my heart and is my helper. I have...
