Okay, let me start by saying that I DO believe in God. Here's the problem I have though:
I don't care what you believe, but don't try to push it on me.
Christian? Great. I don't want it pushed on me.
Catholic? Great. Another denomination of Christianity. I don't want you pushing it on me.
Muslim? Great. We have the same God with different rules. I don't want your views pushed on me (though I've never personally encountered a pushy Muslim).
Agnostic? Great. You don't know if there is a God or not. You guys I really haven't ever had a problem with.
Atheist? Great. You don't believe in God. I don't want you pushing it on me.
There are PLENTY of other religions, I do live in the melting pot. I just have such a problem with people pushing things on me and judging me because I said, "I believe in God." I had a run in with a very bitter atheist today and I think that's why I'm feeling a little miffed. She called me stupid for believing in a, "...flying spaghetti monster." Instead of actually providing an argument for her views she resorted to name calling and insults.
I have NO problem with atheists. I have NO problem with theists. I have a problem with the judgement that seems to come from both sides. I find overbearing Christians and overbearing Atheists on the same level of annoying.
I should have a TUSAL tonight :)
