...becoming one of those "bitter atheists."
Not bitter because I don't have god, not bitter because I don't have a church community, not bitter because this entire sentence has had shit for grammar--
I am pissed off at the screaming morons who squabble like children over who has the better imaginary friend. I am pissed off at the smug declarations that I have a faith. I am pissed off at the assumptions, the accusations and the fact that I am expected to respect religion when religion doesn't respect me.
I am pissed that my mother keeps trying to teach my son prayers.
I am pissed off that my extended family thinks it is any of their business that I do not take my son to church.
I am a bitter atheist because every time I hear someone share some nugget of wisdom about godlessness it's always with a glance at me to see if I will fly off the handle. I don't but dammit I could.
I am tired of my close friends asking me "why" as though I haven't thought this through.
I am tired of being bashed on the television, and I'm tired of chain letters saying that those who love god will forward them.
I am tired of religious groups being emboldened by their numbers and whipping people up into a frenzy.
I am tired... So I am going to bed.
Good night sane people.
