Ok, the Christians who are my Facebook friends have reached a new, previously undiscovered level of stupidity. Or is it ignorance... I can't decide.
I have just been asked if I, because I do not believe in God/Jesus, give back the extra money that I recieve as holiday pay for the Christmas holiday. (!!!!) And, if not, was I not being hypocritical??
Would you give back the money?
I guess that I do not feel that I am accepting the money on the pretense that I believe in Jesus. I mean, the head of the Library (where I work) and the Head of the youth department are both Jewish, and I don't think they're turning down their holiday pay... but, that is beside the point. I get paid for 4 hours on Christmas day because we are closed and I could not work if I wanted to. It is a part of my benefit package. It has nothing to do with my beleif in Christ! Christ! LOL.
Anyway.... just venting really. I am not questioning whether it is right to accept the money. I mean, if someone starts handing me a check, telling me "I am giving you this money because you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ!" and I took the money, now THAT would be hypocritical. But accepting pay for a holiday that we are closed? Not so much.
I guess some people just need an excuse to pick at me because they just found out that I am Atheist.
