Had a little rant at 4am and it got a bit more attention than i intended. I was just trying to say it’s not cool when religious people get branded as idiotic bigots forcing our opinions down peoples’ throats. Maybe I’ve been quite fortunate in that I’ve only ever actually seen 3 religious people do this. But I see on a daily basis certain people who are atheists (not all atheists) abusing and mocking religion and religious people so to me it seems the ramming of opinions down peoples’ throats generally comes from the other side. Sorry if I offended, I was trying to explain my experience but at 4am it wasn’t successful.
what i said:
|i'm not religious|
what they heard:
|babies are so delicious i drink the blood of toddlers every morning and suck out your kid's soul hail satan|
I don’t understand why people where crosses and rosary beads 1) when they’re not Christian and 2) as a fashion accessory
If you weren’t born between 1990 and 1994, you’re a lesser being than those who were. You should have tried harder to be born at the right time.
If you don’t like a certain type of music, or God forbid you DO like a different certain type of music, you suck.
If books aren’t your life, or if music isn’t your life then why are you even alive?
If you don’t have a tattoo, you are uncool.
But if you do have a tattoo and someone else thinks it’s shit then you are even more uncool than people who don’t have a tattoo.
If you’re not freaking obsessed with Harry Potter then you should just die.
If you think Twilight is better than Harry Potter, well fuck, those Harry Potter fans will just rip your throat right out.
If you dress a certain way, that obviously means you’re a dickhead.
If you have a religious belief, you’re a bigoted homophobic idiot.
Those are just a few examples of annoying things people think and actually say a lot of the time. To these people: just shut up and stop being so goddamn critical of everything and everybody and just enjoy your own life.

Our priest was talking about the Higgs Boson in church on Sunday, he didn’t criticise it or condemn science or scientific investigation, he just explained what it was and where they were up to in investigating it because it’s been in the news again recently. He went on to talk about the worth of things and long story short how a pair of rosary beads would probably be of better use to him on his death bed than lottery winnings. He finished his sermon by saying “Like the Higgs Boson, it makes you think”. I liked that, it made me smile.
