As I lay in bed last night, again at 2:30 a.m. not sleeping I couldn’t help but remember a post I read on Facebook, it bothered me so much. I didn’t comment on it on Facebook and I was tempted and still think I might unfollow that person, whom I really don’t know so no great loss for either of us. It’s what was said…and no it wasn’t political so I’m hitting the religion track here.
Ok so here it is, paraphrasing. There was a story being told by this young woman how she ran into a “friend” and was talking about Spring break for the kids, the friend wasn’t sure of the date but knew it was right before Easter. The comment on Facebook was that, that person was not a Christian because they didn’t know the exact date of Easter. This just struck me on so many levels. How hypocritical to call someone else not a Christian, judge not etc… Who knows what is going on in his/her world that they might not remember a date. Who made the rule you’re voted off the island if you can’t remember something.
Last night I had long conversations in my head about this, might as well when you can’t sleep or yes perhaps if I shut up the voices I might sleep. I hate it when religion is used as a weapon instead of the beauty and promise it should be. I may be wrong some where in here, and I know that was one persons opinion just as this is mine but I had to just get it out. Thanks for letting me vent.
Religion and Politics Yup I’m Going There
