Things Christians Do That Irritate Me

By Aspieguy ~

Christians do so many things that simply annoy and irritate me. Some of these things they do irritate me because of my Aspergers. I won't say this is a top ten list. I'll stop when I exhaust my examples.

  1. They are never quiet. They talk continuously and are noticeably uncomfortable with silence.
  2. They touch and hug you without permission. Strangers touching me is freaky
  3. They sing songs about things they don't ever do. For example, they never "dance for Jesus" or "lift holy hands". Because the majority of people masturbate, I wonder how holy the hands are.
  4. They lie. They claim to love everyone but really don't. Some employ sarcasm. I don't recognize sarcasm because I take it literally. I consider sarcasm a form of lying.
  5. The men act like women. Some cry when speaking before the church. They are truly in touch with their feminine side. I'm not.
  6. The men engage in womanly small talk and talk constantly. My idea of a good time is fishing with another man and rarely engaging in conversation other than fish.
  7. They close their eyes and lift hands during praise and worship songs. I suppose they look really spiritual.
  8. They judge others harshly and deny they do it.
  9.  They treat the bible like a cafeteria.
  10. They react to Christianity emotionally, never intellectually.
  11. They constantly employ logical fallacies.
  12. They confuse prayer with actions. Prayers have accomplished nothing.
  13.  They are generally boring. Few people actually interest me. I have no interest in team sports, celebrities, and small talk.
  14.  They assume you agree with their doctrines and opinions. If you don't, you get a lecture.
  15. They think earth is not their home. Home is an invisible place in which they have never been.
  16.  They are thoroughly pissed at atheists, Muslims, gays, and liberals. So much for love.
  17. They can't listen to alternative explanations of biblical events.
  18. Pastors tell stupid jokes, irrelevant stories, or show dull godtube videos. I would rather have extensive dental work than watch Rob Bell's Nooma videos.
  19. They have cliques. No explanation needed.
  20.  They insist that you subscribe to "biblical marriage". I was held to this standard by a serial adulterer.
  21. They are happy to take your money but still treat you like shit.
  22. So many pastors view pornography on church computers. Church secretaries embezzle money, and youth pastors molest the youth.
  23. I never tell people whenever I do something good for other people. They tell everyone. If you engage in some good work, say volunteer at a food pantry, they call that a "ministry". I don't know what that means.
  24.  They insist that you listen to only christian radio stations. K-love makes me want slam my fingers in a door.
  25. They insist you read only boring, christian books.
  26. They think praise and worship music should be your favorite genre. Ewww. My favorites are jazz, big band, swing, Sinatra, classical, Carmina Burana, indie, Foster the People. I even like the High School Musical soundtrack.
  27.  They don't pay any property taxes on church property. Many communities desperately need tax income.
  28. They are secretive about church finances.
  29. They instantly forget members who stop attending services. I never received a single phone call or email when I quit church.
  30. They are ritualistic regardless of what kind of services they have.
  31. Pastors are generally useless. They compose boring sermons and do hospital visits. I don't like visitors when I am in hospital. Visit me at home when I'm feeling better.
Well, I exhausted my examples. I suppose christians are generally annoying much of the time.

A few years ago I underwent a hernia repair. It was a simple procedure, and I went home afterwards. I never told anyone let alone ask for prayers. I had church people angry with me because I didn't ask for prayer and refused to be put on the prayer chain. Well, hell. I had an good anesthesiologist, great surgeon, and excellent nurses. What more could could I want?

Aren't the Christians so silly?

I wiggle my ears for your comments.

So Just How Dumb Were Jesus’ Disciples? The Resurrection, Part VII.

By Robert Conner ~ T he first mention of Jesus’ resurrection comes from a letter written by Paul of Tarsus. Paul appears to have had no interest whatsoever in the “historical” Jesus: “even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, we know him so no longer.” ( 2 Corinthians 5:16 ) Paul’s surviving letters never once mention any of Jesus’ many exorcisms and healings, the raising of Lazarus, or Jesus’ virgin birth, and barely allude to Jesus’ teaching. For Paul, Jesus only gets interesting after he’s dead, but even here Paul’s attention to detail is sketchy at best. For instance, Paul says Jesus “was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” ( 1 Corinthians 15:4 ), but there are no scriptures that foretell the Jewish Messiah would at long last appear only to die at the hands of Gentiles, much less that the Messiah would then be raised from the dead after three days. After his miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus—an event Paul never mentions in his lette

Are You an Atheist Success Story?

By Avangelism Project ~ F acts don’t spread. Stories do. It’s how (good) marketing works, it’s how elections (unfortunately) are won and lost, and it’s how (all) religion spreads. Proselytization isn’t accomplished with better arguments. It’s accomplished with better stories and it’s time we atheists catch up. It’s not like atheists don’t love a good story. Head over to the atheist reddit and take a look if you don’t believe me. We’re all over stories painting religion in a bad light. Nothing wrong with that, but we ignore the value of a story or a testimonial when we’re dealing with Christians. We can’t be so proud to argue the semantics of whether atheism is a belief or deconversion is actually proselytization. When we become more interested in defining our terms than in affecting people, we’ve relegated ourselves to irrelevance preferring to be smug in our minority, but semantically correct, nonbelief. Results Determine Reality The thing is when we opt to bury our


By David Andrew Dugle ~   S ettle down now children, here's the story from the Book of David called The Parable of the Bent Cross. In the land Southeast of Eden –  Eden, Minnesota that is – between two rivers called the Big Miami and the Little Miami, in the name of Saint Gertrude there was once built a church. Here next to it was also built a fine parochial school. The congregation thrived and after a multitude of years, a new, bigger church was erected, well made with clean straight lines and a high steeple topped with a tall, thin cross of gold. The faithful felt proud, but now very low was their money. Their Sunday offerings and school fees did not suffice. Anon, they decided to raise money in an unclean way. One fine summer day the faithful erected tents in the chariot lot between the two buildings. In the tents they set up all manner of games – ring toss, bingo, little mechanical racing horses and roulette wheels – then all who lived in the land between the two rivers we

Christian TV presenter reads out Star Wars plot as story of salvation

An email prankster tricked the host of a Christian TV show into reading out the plots of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Star Wars in the belief they were stories of personal salvation. The unsuspecting host read out most of the opening rap to The Fresh Prince, a 1990s US sitcom starring Will Smith , apparently unaware that it was not a genuine testimony of faith. The prankster had slightly adapted the lyrics but the references to a misspent youth playing basketball in West Philadelphia would have been instantly familiar to most viewers. The lines read out by the DJ included: "One day a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in my living area. I ended up getting into a fight, which terrified my mother." The presenter on Genesis TV , a British Christian channel, eventually realised that he was being pranked and cut the story short – only to move on to another spoof email based on the plot of the Star Wars films. It began: &quo

On Living Virtuously

By Webmdave ~  A s a Christian, living virtuously meant living in a manner that pleased God. Pleasing god (or living virtuously) was explained as: Praying for forgiveness for sins  Accepting Christ as Savior  Frequently reading the Bible  Memorizing Bible verses Being baptized (subject to church rules)  Attending church services  Partaking of the Lord’s Supper  Tithing  Resisting temptations to lie, steal, smoke, drink, party, have lustful thoughts, have sex (outside of marriage) masturbate, etc.  Boldly sharing the Gospel of Salvation with unbelievers The list of virtuous values and expectations grew over time. Once the initial foundational values were safely under the belt, “more virtues'' were introduced. Newer introductions included (among others) harsh condemnation of “worldly” music, homosexuality and abortion Eventually the list of values grew ponderous, and these ideals were not just personal for us Christians. These virtues were used to condemn and disrespect fro

I can fix ignorance; I can't fix stupid!

By Bob O ~ I 'm an atheist and a 52-year veteran of public education. I need not tell anyone the problems associated with having to "duck" the "Which church do you belong to?" with my students and their parents. Once told by a parent that they would rather have a queer for their sons' teacher than an atheist! Spent HOURS going to the restroom right when prayers were performed: before assemblies, sports banquets, "Christmas Programs", awards assemblies, etc... Told everyone that I had a bladder problem. And "yes" it was a copout to many of you, but the old adage (yes, it's religious) accept what you can't change, change that which you can and accept the strength to know the difference! No need arguing that which you will never change. Enough of that. What I'd like to impart is my simple family chemistry. My wife is a Baptist - raised in a Baptist Orphanage (whole stories there) and is a believer. She did not know my religi
