An atheist blog sent me this message in response to this post:
"tell them that they’re going to hell in every other religion :)"
And this is what I said in response:
"Hah. I appreciate the sentiment, really. But, in that particular post, I’m speaking in reference to people that I care very much about, and I wouldn’t want them to feel like I was attacking them, just like they don’t want me to feel like they’re attacking me.
It’s hard to read your tone, but after taking a few moments to read through your blog I’m gathering that this is how you react to every religious person. I, on the other hand, have a bit more tolerance than it seems you have, and I’m not going to simply mock and berate someone for having a different belief system than me.
Again, I appreciate the sentiment, and I honestly hope that this was just a bit of a teasing remark you were making in hopes of making me feel better. If that was the case, thank you. But, I don’t think it was, and I don’t really approve of you giving me the advice of being rude to people I care about.
Whatever the case, thank you for the message.”
Maybe I was being a bit harsh?
I don’t know, but I seriously don’t appreciate people telling me to make rude remarks. It’s not kind, and it’s not a decent thing to do.
How did you read this statement?
