    NO! I'm not talking about helpful hints or nice discussions with others. This not geared towards anyone specific, just in general of those "preachy" types. I am guilty of coming across as preachy too, with others... though, I don't mean to be! I was once a christian...

    I'm not stuffing my opinion down your throat so please return the favor and don't shove your convictions down mine. It's called the Golden Rule. Crap.

    And Yet It Continues

    Just got a very VERY religious Easter email from my best friend. She knows that I don't do the Catholic thing and that I always respect her beliefs. But yet again she has sent this whole email with what we should focus on today... My reply... "The ONLY thing I shall be...

    Don't Need Someone Telling Me How to Think...

    I hate it because do they really believe people are that dumb that they haven't heard.  I'm a good believer of manners so I never know what to say to them. Blah!  I have my beliefs and have not found a church I'm really happy with so I'll stick to my own beliefs...

    My Back Goes Up

    I wonder where that expression came from - getting your back up. Anyways, back to the point. There is one sure way of getting under my skin and that is to lecture me. Even if its with the best of intentions it will fly straight out the other ear. If you can't take the time to...

    They Say...

    All this bullshit that I will never believe in my life, and though I have made that fact clear to them, they decide to go on and on about something that they think is so damned devine. I don't "preach" to you about my ungodly ways, so please, don't preach to me about...

    Leave Me Alone

    In the parking lot of a mall and this woman approaches me with literature and something about her god. I thanked her and but said "no thank you"... She continued babbling something about heaven and hell and again I said "no thank you". So the crazy woman...

    Live and Let Live

    I love people from all walks of life.  I don't care what race or religion people are.  Everyone has an equal opportunity to be my friend.  I like gay people because they are people.  I like "living in sin" with my boyfriend because we'll get married...

    Opinions??

    so many times i've been given others opinions as they think i'm wrong, and quite often told me that!  Even with my faith, i've been told i'll come to realise i'm wrong! I now realise there is nothing i can say to prevent this. I can either walk away or just keep telling...

    Still I Listen

    I was thought that it's really rude not to listen to someone while they are talking, so I always listen.

    You'll See

    I cannot stand when someone refers to their divine power vaguely in conversation, says that this person is no "mere human" and that I am am wrong, and then that phrase just grinds my gears, "You'll see." For the record, when you say to me "You'll see," you are implying that I am...

    Real Ideals

    I hate, when people preach religion onto me. They always seem to guilt trip you into thinking that your not capable of living be your own means, and that you need guidance. Which is a horse ****. Surely if god did created the species of men and women and all of nature, he would...

    You Did This When.......
