    Arrogance Or Ignorance....

    So, which is it? Arrogance or ignorance? Whenever I meet someone who claims Christianity they automatically assume that I follow their beliefs and when I correct their assumption they seem shocked and dismayed. I want to know, it is just that they so rarely encounter someone...

    When The Doorbell Rings

    It could be those Jehovah guys. Or maybe, the Mormons. You can talk to them, but it always seems as if they came from another planet. Living in religion, sheltered from all intelligent discourse about the real world, sometimes, I feel sorry for these people. I once let the...

    I Don't Care.

    Jesus Loves Me, But He Hates Your Assumptions...

    I admire THE MAN that was Jesus Christ, just as much as I admire those who follow in his footsteps. I am not a Christian, don't assume that I am one, that simply limits your mindset toward me.  I accept you because you think you are disciples of Jesus, but yet some of...

    I'm A Generic Looking White Guy

    I'm a fairly generic looking white guy. The Christians always wish me a "Merry Christmas" and ask me where I "fellowship." I return the greeting with the time worn "Have a cool Yule." Fellowship? Like at your church? No thanks. I'm not a Christian. Nope, I'm not Jewish...

    The most annoying type of people are the superficial ones that don't realize they are superficial. Like now you see my face and you suddenly can't talk anymore.
