So I ran into an older woman who:
1) Took it as her Personal Duty to Save My Soul
2) Decided that she loved me and I hated her.
3) Decided that I didn't know what I was talking about when I indicated a preference for an afterlife that differed from her own (which admittedly looks good on paper, but has a few things I deem to be flaws)
5) Called me a heathen (which I don't necessarily take as an insult, but which seems counterintuitive when taken in light with #2) and a fool (Which seems rather oxymoronic considering we both know you can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped)
6) Only talked to me for about a half hour before Mom Saved My Brain.
And while some of my more irreverent friends and followers may well think the best part is making a Christian cry, it really saddens me that so many people are so eager to force people into their own perspectives. Name calling is so easy for people to do these days, and while I do it, at least I have the decency to not try telling you it's out of love.
Thing is, I get the thing about forcing people to your own perspective, it's built into the system if it's to be interpreted a certain not altogether wrong way (spread the word and all that). What I don't get, is doing so under false pretense.
