Can you tell me how true, born again Christians, followers of Christ, have treated athiests. The answer is...with love.

You call constant harassment and neglect love? Because that's all I've been given.

What harassment and neglect? I've never seen or heard about any of that. (unless we're talking about WBC)

As a child I was prohibited to play with a lot of children from my neighborhood because my mother wasn't a Christian. I was on a Christian school for a small while and when my teacher heard that I didn't believe in God, she would gives me bad grades for the year I was on there for no reason. I was afraid to go outside too, because some teens were bullying me whenever they saw me because they had been told I am a devil's child for looking really pale (I was born a ginger but my hair color changed to blonde when I was a few months old), while I was only a 7 year old kid. Basically I got treated as if I was some evil abomination for not believing in God. Religion ruined a good part of my childhood. We eventually moved because the whole god damn neighborhood was insane and me, my mother and my father felt really intimidated because everyone was avoiding us.

Later, when I was 14, my parents divorced and my father got a new girlfriend. She was VERY religious and would use Christianity as an excuse to anything. Singing Christian songs every day in the kitchen. She eventually married my father, got 2 children and forced them to go to church with her. She was even putting pressure upon me and my dad to go to church.

Well, 2 years later, her mother and father came over from Nigeria and stayed at my father's home for like half a year. When I come over to visit for the first time, her father would ask me why I wasn't thankful for being made by God. I just replied that religion isn't my thing, to avoid trouble. However, they and me stepmother immediately overreacted, started throwing racial slurs at me all day long, completely ignored me, tried to keep me away from my half-brother and half-sister whenever possible. They would only talk to me if they needed something to be done that they were too lazy for to do at the moment. When I was at my half-sister's first birthday party, my stepmother's family came over and they would all stare at me as if I was their worst nightmare.

Hmm, hit the character limit. But yeah, I have literally zero positive experiences with Christianity and got treated like dirt. On top of that, my stepmother completely ****** over my father, got him into massive debt and now he's got huge financial problems. He wasted 5 years with that woman and all she did was pretend she was holier-than-thou, while she is being a leech, a parasite, sucking him dry. Now they have divorced and my father nearly ended up being homeless because of that bitch.

By the way, did I mention he had a woman before that which was also Christian and nearly got his head blown off by her brother because he said he was Gnostic?

So much disappointment, not at you, at the people you claim to have these experiences with. That is absolutely ******* shameful on their part and not the message that christianity teaches. But.... don't blame the religion, blame the people. Most of us are not like that.

Yeah, I really feel the love from the two people that wake me up several times a week knocking on my door to join their church because "eternal damnation awaits [me]" and they're "doing [me] a favor"

All they do is make me want to kill myself when I go to work tired.

hahahaha oh god thats funny!
I'm the only damn atheist in my entire school, and everyone found out by accident. not because i called them stupid faggots or something, but because i didn't want to pray in this church we visited on a field trip. almost EVERY ******* DAY....
i am tormented by these retards that out of no where decide to shove their religion down my ******* throat. Mind you that i never attacked them on the subject and only ever defended my "belief" when they started attacking ME.
otherwise i have nothing against ANY religion and have tons of friends that are orthodox, catholic, and etc.
So yeah. treated with so much love.

User avatar #12 to #11 - temporalguardian (01/31/2013) [-]

User avatar #13 to #12 - thanksgivingturkey (01/31/2013) [-]
South eastern USA. Bunch of prejudice religious ***** who can't seem to leave me alone about my "beliefs" when I leave them alone about theirs.
User avatar #14 to #13 - temporalguardian (01/31/2013) [-]
Yeah.. I live in Serbia. the guidance councilor or what ever told me to just try and ignore them, since they couldn't have their religion or pray and **** back when we were still yugoslavia. excuse me, BUT THEY WERENT EVEN BORN THEN. btw imagine how i felt when on that road trip when we went to the church, the teacher actually took their side in being a damn responsible adult and stopping the argument.

With love, like King Olaf of Norway did when he shoved christianity down people's throats. And if they didn't swallow it, he killed them.

#3 to #1 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
except for the whole Spanish inquisition and shoving religion down our heretical throats
User avatar #109 to #3 - theexo (01/31/2013) [-]
that was catholicism
#135 to #109 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Is not Catholicism a subset of Christianity?
User avatar #80 to #3 - Grom (01/31/2013) [-]
oh and the christian crusades where they massacred millions of people who believed anything different. even some sects of their own religion.
#71 to #3 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
how many people died during the Spanish Inquistion if i may ask?
#128 to #71 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
only about 2,300 people but many were tortured and they way the people were kill was horrific
User avatar #34 to #3 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
Crusades were far worst. While the inquisition was bad, it actually only affected roughly 10% of the population. Most of the inquisition took place within the cities, leaving the country side untouched, where in fact most of the country resided. So, no violence is good, but it affected less people than we think. We can thank propaganda for making us believe it was more widespread than it was.
#35 to #34 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
yes but the inquisition is best know as well as being horrifically brutal
User avatar #36 to #35 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
So was everything back then...witch hunts, wars, heresy in general. The torture they employed, and execution methods (quartering and breaking the wheel being some of the worst) were everywhere, not just the inquisition.
#37 to #36 - classicvictory (01/31/2013) [-]
isnt slaughtering the people fun?
#39 to #37 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
Of course. I didn't say it wasn't

Crusades *cough cough*
User avatar #17 to #5 - Maroon ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
The crusades were more of a way to deal with all the knights in the kingdoms who didn't have a war to fight and were instead terrorizing the peasantry
#26 to #17 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Actually the crusades were a defensive war that was called by Urban II when the emperor of the Byzantine empire begged for assistance due to Islamic Forces encroaching on their land.
User avatar #295 to #26 - Maroon ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
The Byzantine Empire fell because Constantinople (a Christian city) was sacked by crusaders who were let in. I vaguely recall the lesson saying that they were payed by Venice to do so so that Venice would have a trade monopoly on the Mediterranean.
