Lead me not into temptation!

    Why is it so necessary for someone to tell me what religion they are?  I am so tempted to verbally voice my opinion but the better side of me says, "Don't do it Sandy, you know what kind of conflict this will cause as if the situation isn't already barely bearable."

    Thanks ya'll.  This is something that is going on in real life.  Virtual talk... that don't mean nothing and I certainly hope that people on the internet don't actually let what gets said on a forum upset their lives. 

    I shouldn't even be letting what is going on in my personal life upset me.  I needs to get a handle on my emotions and just keep being the big girl that I am. lol.

    I think that is mostly what is getting under my skin too.  I know that it is necessary to be the bigger person, bite my tongue and just do what is right... but ZOMG! 

    When you have to do this and the other person is telling you "Because I am Catholic"... well you get the point.  I think? smile

    ps. especially, especially, especially when that person is telling flat out lies.

      see that is kinda what I was trying to say.
      for me..computer world can be shut off, no big deal AT ALL. Yesterday, real life problems...try to ignore then with the computer..TOTAL overreaction.(religion does it ever time..you think i owud knwo better by now..) I try to remeber that, when I am typing. I would not want to be reponsable for pushing someone "over the edge." written words can have a hurtful effect, even if they shouldnt.

        Indeed your right, it can do that. I wouldn't want to be that person either.  Unfortunately, you can't be responsible for somehow knowing who you are really going to effect.

        I think there was one time of the forum (I don't know if the person was for real or not) that wanted to commit suicide.  I was like do it, whatever and others were saying the same thing.  But after I wrote it, I had to go back and belay my words because it's not sure if the person was being really serious or just posing. 

        It's hard to tell in the internet sometimes.

    I think perhaps it is a Contraception problem that really lies behind what is being promoted by them. hmm

    Often some blame their parents for the fact that it failed... While some parents blame them becoz the sex was bad anyway! smile

    I think some people reiterate their beliefs as a form of bragging.  They have to remind THEMSELVES that they are "good" and "right".  When people force their belief system on me, I feel as if I have been attacked.  Everyone believes differently, if even only slightly differently.  It is the same with the people who feel the need to express every aspect of their political views.  No one cares...

      Actually it feels sorta that way; that I am not important and thou holy ones feelings are all that matters.  I must be very careful where I step.

      My opinion is irrelevant, I may not say anything with regards to certain actions and I must sit quietly and take all the criticisms. 

      Yet, if I say nothing...then saying nothing is just as bad as saying something.  I say something and the could accidentally set her off. 

      Wait... I set her off no matter what I do.  Can't say nothing and can't say something.  That's what I got to deal with.  So frustrating.

      Yet I have to just suck it up.

        Sandra your opinion is relevant and on here you are in the top 5 hubbers on this site. I know real life is different from being on a website but the person behind the screen isnt. I took critism from my ex for years but looking back now she was the one that saw life through negatitive eyes, now when I hear that Lily Allen song I think of her.

        Now you smile girl and remember you are a special person because trust me you sure as hell are !

        I agree, and it has taken me months to realize what you guys already know.  I have stopped giving my opinions on certain forums because my feelings will either be brushed aside, or shat upon.

    Sandra I'm a Catholic. HEHEHE Sorry I couldn't resist. and I actually don't mind when ppl tell me their religion because I am interested in learning more about their religion. Except for when they start preaching then I get irritated.

      sandra rinckposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Someone telling me what their religion is when there isn't confrontation is conversation called getting to know a little about someone and welcomed. 

      Someone telling me this while in confrontation makes me wonder what the friggin' point is other then trying to either put fear in me or asking for more sympathy for ignorance. 

      I enjoy learning about people religions too but come on...

    This all sounds like everyone is co-dependent on each other.

      "Co-dependent" connotes that someone needs another's approval to validate themself.  If I felt the need to log on to the internet and spout off about my religion with every breath, I would be co-dependent.  The ones who go on and on about their religion are doing it for two reasons.  They need validation for their beliefs, or they want to argue with those who don't believe the way they do.  I have seen these posts and I cannot believe that the "believers" do not post some of these threads to cast judgement on those who disagree with their beliefs.

    I'm not really sure Sandra. I think maybe they're waiting for that one person who will say "Really? Teach me everything you know! I'd like to be converted and be just like you."

    I think most people understand that someone can be happy and a good person having a different religion than their own, or no religion at all. But some people... not so much.
