I might have to steal this...

lol, this thread is great!

Last Easter a facebook friend had some Bible verse and then he wrote that anyone who did not believe in that verse was an idiot and going to hell. Yeah, I deleted him.

Oh, this is depressing.
Someone I've been looking for, seriously for years now, found me on Facebook today. We were best friends in high school and lost touch afterward. IT'S ALREADY STARTED. Apparently she's even more fanatical about religion than she used to be, and has already attempted to correct me from 'xmas' to 'Christmas'... And asked what she considered 'the big question': whether or not I'm a Christian yet. Srsly?? Ugh. We'll see how this goes, but from the first shot fired... It's looking like it might end with "It's nice to know you're still alive. Have a nice life." and a defriending on my part. I refuse to deal with that crap.

Well, after we got past the whole "oh you're making me cry, i'm so sad that you don't believe in god, I thought you were a smart woman!" BULL (don't worry, I put her in her place for that last remark), we actually had a good conversation. And then she was gone this morning. I think her husband may have made her delete her Facebook account. Can't have the womenfolk gettin' ideas from the heathens, I guess. Whaaaatever. Shame on me for getting my hopes up while we were talking last night.

I am sorry. I know I am always disappointed when I think I have found someone I have been looking for and then realize we have nothing left to connect over.

Aww that sucks Jenna. People change when we don't see them for a long time, and not always for the better.

Yeah. I should've expected it - I knew that her husband was a fundie Baptist weirdo - but I was hoping for the best. And during the conversation, she really seemed to move back into her 'old self'... Until her husband came home anyway. But she made her choice, and she chose a life submissive to her husband. So I'm trying not to be down about it.

Re: the bolded part

OMG I would totally have lost my temper with that.

I thought facebook was great, and it still is for posting pics of my L/O for family to see. But right now, it is kind of depressing. I have all of these people that I have reconnected with and now, they just seem like total strangers. If I met them now, we certainly wouldn't be friends. We have nothing in common. Most have turned into super fundies with "praise jeebus" posted every five minutes.

So you know what you do-----delete all of them. And add people who you have interests with. My facebook is full of people that think like I do. Therefore I don't make them mad when i post atheist things. I refuse to allow other people to run my facebook. It is mine. Not theirs.

I have even had to kick family off of my facebook because they start drama on there. I don't put up with that crap in real life, I sure as heck ain't going to take it on Facebook. LOL
