http://bs-meter-reads-zero.blogspot.com/2013/04/you-are-christian-yet-you-write-these.html I live in a small town in South Carolina.....The Bible Belt. If shaking some sense into people were a form of exercise, I would be a size 3 in a matter of days.... Luckily, I only shake people in my brain.... Living in the South and being an Atheist is difficult at times....seems they all carry spoons in their back pockets....ready to "force-feed" you a steaming pile of religion.....
We have a local "news" blogger that took it upon himself to justify his hatred of transgender/transvestite people and step too far. While he claims he runs an "unbiased" news blog....I had been observing him for a couple of weeks and saw his "news" being inundated with biasness and religious rhetoric...I could no longer watch....So....I called him out on a few things....
Let's just say that after he read my retort....he called me and began screaming at me on the phone....sent weirdo text messages and spammed my e-mail.....LOL....Either way....it made me giggle!
I am currently exiled in a small Texas town, that is saturated with religion.
Because it can cost me my job if I am not careful, I err on the side of caution and just keep my mouth shut.
I have come to the conclusion that I am the one out of place and need to move as soon as I can arrange it. But it is not easy waiting.
That's why I work in a field where it is best that you remain out of the "spot-light"....I am in the Asset Recovery field....better known as repossessions. =) No need to have personal discussions...mainly because I am in my car all the time!
Limited public or personal interaction is the way to go when surrounded by crazy people.
I hope to have a job like that again one day.
What do you want to do? ....Dare I say...What do you want to be when you grow up? I refuse to grow up..... =D
