oh man the best is when a dude is like "you’re not wife material." fucking good. i want to be totalitarian dictator material; blood sucking life ruiner material; fucking bulletproof immortal drug lord material. not your fucking wife you gross asshole.
Sometimes I think I’ve mostly mellowed out about Christianity - like, I’m an atheist and that’s what I am and I can let Christians do their thing across the way.
But sometimes, man. Sometimes I have to seriously control myself. Because I do not get it at all.
That’s okay. I’m still figuring stuff out, too. And believe me, there are a lot of Christians I don’t get, either. Also? Have not gotten around to like, reading any of those comments on my status about that blog post I wrote because I just don’t have the energy to try and listen to some of the B.S. that some people are spouting and I feel like this may have a little bit of reference to that, maybe? If not, my perspective still stands.
It’s just… It’s a lot of weird and a lot of dumb and also I have a lot of obligation to keep peace and bite my tongue about my actual opinions because - lucky me - I’m marrying into a really, seriously bible-y/conservative family. So there’s that.
<3Also for the record, I don’t identity as a conservative so that’s really what’s important right?

Yeah, this was a little bit in reference to your blog post, but it also just got me thinking about the old testament in a context I hadn’t for a while - recently it’s all been academic and detached, so to think on the bible in a religious light is not something I’ve done for a while, and it brought up a lot of weird vestigial anger from when I was first questioning Christianity.
For the record, I’ve always thought you had your head screwed on straight, and I certainly don’t think any less of you for your faith. But nor do I begrudge your future challenges with your in-laws ;)
