OK, not a pet peeve but a thing-that-pisses-me-off.
Please do NOT share your religion with me unless/until I invite you to. Odds are, if you’re born again/evangelical or most any other flavor of christian, that’ll never ever happen. Not in my lifetime or yours. An exception? The Unitarian Universalists – they seem pretty cool. Otherwise, nope. I can’t think of any others I wanna hear about.
Also, don’t invite me to join your ShoutyFace group that’s ostensibly non religious when I can CLEARLY see that most members are christianists AKA evangelicals. I ain’t no idiot, no dimwitted flounder waiting to be hauled in to Jesus’s Big Catch of the Day. I’m 62 goddamned years old – give me, at the very motherfucking least, some kind of fried crawdad credit for being able to think and sort out my damned beliefs over these past long-ass decades. K?
Religions I’m open to hearing more about IF I ask you and IF you’re not proselytizing? From an academic point of view, sure, you can tell me more about what it means to be:
- nontheist Quaker
Dunno, what else ya got?
Just don’t get all in my face about Cheesus!
