Like I said earlier…

We just got a new sign here at work- you know, the kind that is a black background with red lights spelling stuff out. I’ve sorta been put in charge of inputting the messages.

I was just in back figuring out how to add an american flag animation when a co-worker came up and suggested I add “pray for our troops” to it. I said that we might want to get permission from the president of our company to use a religious reference and that perhaps we could safely say “support our troops”. She said “yeah, I guess you’re right. I mean, we don’t want to insult all of those people who are going to die horribly and go to hell. Hahahahahaha”.

I was so close to saying “oh, you mean like me?”. That woulda shut her up. But then it probably would have gotten even more uncomfortable around here. There was already that moment of silence when I was asked when I was going to baptize my son…

    Aaaaah! I would’ve run screaming from the room, but I suppose it is stuff like that that has made me such a religiphobe. Bryan has a lot of trouble understanding why I feel the way I do about religious people. He’s much more willing to put up with them than I am. I don’t think he’s ever really experienced any thing like the insidious judgmental behavior the people I grew up around display on a regular basis. Hugs.

    Ha. It would have been interesting to see her face, though! Nothing like the shock of encountering a sinner ;-)

    Ew. It’s people like that who give religion a bad name. That was just wildly inappropriate.
