MAJOR rant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Okay...I'm not sure if this post will make people upset...I'm sorry if it does...I'm just expressing MY(personal) views...

Okay, we live in a very small country town...

and this morning I went to the store to get some snacks...(bubba is craving m&m's...hehe)

and while I was in this store, some women started talking to me making conversation...

when all of the sudden these nice women suddenly turned into horrid horrid women...

basically judging me b/c me and my husband do not go to church every sunday...they were saying some very bad things such as " well, your going to be condemed to hell b/c you dnt praise the lord every sunday"

and "your a bad mother b/c you dont let your daughter go to church"

I was simply appauled..!! You women talk about being Christians and you simply judging and bashing me!!

Just because I dont go to church, doesnt mean I'm not a christian or I dnt believe in God...

and I replied " well going to church doesnt make you anymore a christian than standing in a garage makes you a car"...they didnt like that very much...

I admit,I don't go to church, but that makes me no less of a believer and a christian than them. I pray everynight, and I thank the Lord for everything I have..EVERYDAY...
I teach my daughter everything about the Lord, it's not like she is clueless to all of that...

I'm just really upset that these women would simply attack me like that in the middle of a store while I'm just buying M&Ms....and keep in mind these women were buying beer and liquor...not saying you cant do that, but how are you going to judge me?!?!?! I am not judging you....ya know what I mean?

I havent been this upset in a long time, possibly never...

As a kid, my parents didnt go to church but they are some of the most religious people I have met.....

(This might be what offends some people, and I'm so sorry if it does)

around here, after church on Sunday, the ladies get together and gossip about everyone in the church...THEN on Saturday night they get drunk..and come into church Sunday like they dont do anything wrong and such...
(my grandmother goes to this church, and has thought about not going b/c this particular group of women)

I'm just really upset...and need some advice or something..

and like I said before, I am SOOOO sorry if I offended anyone, that wasnt my intention, I just had to tell someone this, cause this really upset me...

Am personally not a christian but my mother is and she hasn't been to church since the vicar was really awful after my grandmother died. Her arguement is if God is everwhere he will hear her prayers from home as well as he will from church.

I was raised in a christian household and attended church schools and was always taught that a real christian is someone who helps others and cares for their feelings.

It sounds to me as if you are more the true definition of a christian than these women are. I hate it when others use religion to judge others and make themselves feel superior. Ignore these women they are rude and ignorant.

Thank you so much!! You have me in tears right now... I just dont understand how some people can be so cruel, when I try t be the nicest I can be to everyone....you never know what someone has been through, so never judge them...thats my philosphy...I'm just hurt...and stuff like that makes you lose faith in people in general...ya know what I mean?

but like I said, thank you, you made me feel so much better.

they are a bunch of old biddies who know nothing of christianity, in my experience, the ones who go to church every sunday are the least christian people, I grew up in a small rural irish town and saw every sunday these horrible ladies all dressed up and holier than thou and not a good word to say about anyone! you did and said the right thing hopefully it will make them think! xxx

You're very welcome. Ignore the idiots and their stupid ignorance! You have a little bubs inside who needs it's mummy to not be upset. They are not worth your time or efforts hun. You or baby don't need the stress. People like that (and forgive me for swearing), are not worth the steam off a dog's sh1t!!

haha...I seen that quote somewhere a long time ago and it just stuck in my head, cause it's so true...haha

Thank you so much hun...I was soo afraid that I would get bashed for this post...I dont know why I was scared of that...maybe b/c I am already upset knowing I would be even hella more upset if I got bashed once again...and I told my DH and he was just like 'ignore them'....but it's hard for me to ignore someone who bashed me...I'm a very sensitive person, although sometimes I dont show it, I'll just wait till I get home to cry about it...

thank you hun!! your the best!!
