Its not like they believe in OUR god!

The other day I was having a discussion with my friend at work about how my grandparents (who are Alaskan native) were sent to boarding schools and had their mouths washed out with soap if they spoke their language. I explained that Christianity was forced upon them. Her response was "well its not like they believed in OUR god" huge emphasis on the OUR god part. I can expect this from someone who upon learning that I'm native said "wow I had no idea cause its not like you ever see attractive natives! you are obviously more than you look" It just bothers me that this is the norm.

That's because "Our God" is the only one.  Duh!

you know, Kairan posted an offhand comment in another thread a while back, that has stuck with me ever since.  She said, "we don't like your Jesus, we'll make up our own".  So true.

This begs the question, why do you consider that dipshit your friend?

"wow I had no idea cause its not like you ever see attractive natives! you are obviously more than you look"

I wonder if your "friend" was implying that you must not be full-blood native or you wouldn't be attractive?

 I'm getting a lot of hate for calling her a friend! She WAS a friend. I don't consider her a friend anymore. What made this all the more shocking is that she was my friend. Just wanted to share my experience.
