Last night my dh and I were visiting with close friends. After a pleasant evening of board games and snacks, the wife says "let us sing you our new duet" (they are professional singers). She starts in singing The Old Rugged Cross while he harmonizes with Zippity Doo Da.
This may seem funny, or no big deal, but I feel it was done to mock me. I have basically a christian belief system, and Im the only one of the group who does. I dont really talk about it or shove it down anyones throat. Its part of who I am and Im comfy with that. I dont need to be an overbearing jerk about it.
But I found it really offensive that two people I care about, and who care about me could act like this. If you dont buy into the whole mission behind Jesus death then thats your choice. But hewas still an innocent man who was tortured and murdered in front of his mother! Who can make fun of that? Iwould be heartbroken over this happening to anyone and I would notfind it a joking matter.
So, amI overreacting? I havent said a word and I didnt outwordly react to the song. What is your take on it? Maybe Im just being a freak.....

It's difficult because you are the only one in the room who holds these beliefs and they were trying to show off their new song. You handled right just be polite and walk away.
