I swear I’m a magnet for religious people!

For those who don’t know me very well because in honesty religion isn’t something I really talk about on my blog, I am not really a religious person. I was raised Catholic, and basically forced upon the Catholic faith, to church, to school and all the usual rituals. As I grew up I had too many questions and couldn’t comprehend a lot that the Catholic Faith taught, nor did I believe a lot of it.

I have a lot of issues with religion, a lot of issues with the ‘faith’ that Christianity teaches, I’m not going to get into it on my blog much because there are a lot of friends, family, and readers that are Christian and for you that’s OK, but for me, it’s not something I really believe in or can fathom at this point in my life.

Anyways, no matter what it is, for some reason religious people flock to me! I can’t tell you how many times I get fliers tried to be handed to me, obnoxious people knocking on my door to ‘sell’ me their religion or their church even though there’s clearly a no solicitation sign on my door. Heck even about a year ago I met one of my neighbors who had some hand me downs she wanted to give me for Aria and she sticks a bunch of pamphlets and church fliers in the bag with them.

I can’t tell you how much this turns me off of people, it’s all well in good if that’s what you believe in but if you don’t know a person, I really find it rude and ‘turned off’ to you when you just shove religion in my face without asking me about my own views first.

The other day I was walking to the school to pick up Lyric, the little old lady down the street always comes out to say hi and to chat a bit, well this day she came out and said I was waiting for you I have something for you. You guess it, a nice little pamphlet to her church for a group called Moms Matter, at first I was like ok it’s just a mom’s group, until I actually looked into the pamphlet when we got home and was blown away at what I read..

And I quote “The older women must train the younger women to love their husband and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands.” The entire thing is all well and good until the last part. To be submissive to their husbands, anyone that knows me knows I took a look at this and let out a big, loud HELL NO and threw the pamphlet in the trash. If someone wants to be like that, fine, but that is not something I would ever do, nor teach my two girls to be like when they’re married, I was just blown away by that statement.

I dunno what it is, I think I have a big sign on my forehead that says NON BELIEVER, NON CHURCH GOER or something like that, but I’m truly sick of all the people coming to me trying to get me to join their church or be part of their religion, I’m perfectly happy in my own type of ‘faith’ that I’m at right now!

This post isn’t meant to offend you who are Christian or church goers, if you are religious then that’s great…for you… These are just my own views and thoughts, I don’t like organized religion, I don’t believe in 95% of the things Christianity teaches nor do I believe a book that was written so long about by some mystical men. I have my own thoughts about religion, I have my own thoughts about faith and about any sort of God, it’s not really what most people think/believe in, I’m different, I know that I just really wish people of Christian faith would realize that and not think I need to be ‘saved’ or something, I’m perfectly happy where I lay.
