When I was little, I didn't really care that my friends were all christians. We had fun and were best friends and it didn't matter. As I got older, (and they all turned into annoying, brainless teenagers who can't think for themselves, but think that they can) It really started to annoy me. Why do they need some big invisible person that they've never actually met in real life? Why couldn't they rely on themselves, like me, or their friends? Now that I barely talk to my old friends, I find myself lonely. My best atheist friend moved to Georgia, and now I barely ever talk to him. So here I am, looking for a friend to kick up my feet and eat Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream with. Who wants to explore human psychology with me?! (I was joking about the ice cream thing, by the way ;p)
My story: I am an atheist (being a closet atheist for years because I didn't know about atheism yet), and recently my boyfriend lost his faith. It's rather difficult for me since my family is conservative Catholic and they view atheists to be in the same boat as satanists. I am lucky though to have friends who respect me and my lack of faith. They have faith, but we just choose not to discuss religion, and that keeps us together.
It is quite lonely being the only rational person among my friends. Some are far more rational than others, but some are deep in the theological mudpie.
