Christians have you ever had someone delete you from FB/CM/ or any other social network after they figured out your religion or political stance?

I am Catholic and it is all over my CM page and my FB page. I am republican but I don't have a problem with democrats. My husband is a democrat. It makes for interesting conversations.

Recently I found some grade school friends. I moved during my 6th grade and lost touch with them. I found one that added me, read my page, made a comment and left all in 5 minutes if even that long. This isn't the first time this happened, I had friend leave because I refuse to support abortion protest even though I am very much against abortion. I know this will shock people but Christians can and are friends with non-Christians and republican can talk to non-republicans. This last one I am very upset about. She seemed able to put down republicans but when I refused to say Obama deserved this award she left after making a smart alec remark.
I lost count of the number of anti relgion jokes she made to me and I just let go.

  • there is a lot of illiteracy on cafemom LOL I went into a pagan question a few months back and got my butt jumped BUT when the question is directed at Christians I guess it is an open forum--just when it is pagans can we have special rules.

  • That sucks. I had a long lost high school friend delete me when they found out I am a Pagan. I don't hide it but I don't go pushing it on anyone either. She also deleted another high school friend who is a lesbian. Don't worry about it OP, its her loss not yours.

  • There is one person on my facebook page who dropped me as a friend, and I'm not sure why. The first time, I figured it was accidental, so I sent him a new request. He re-added me, then a week later, dropped the connection. I figure he's got his reasons, so I'm not going to bother trying to send him a new request.

  • I deleted someone from facebook for her political bs.

  • I haven't had that happen, but I don't really have any religious or political stuff on my fb or myspace. I would say that if they drop you just because of your beliefs, they weren't much of a friend in the first place. I personally wouldn't drop someone just because they had a different political or religious view. Now if they kept trying to push it on me and said offensive things about my beliefs, I would probably drop them. Otherwise, I respect other peoples beliefs and I would expect them to respect mine.

  • I'm not a Christian, but I have had many people block me because I'm an atheist. Those people blocked me even when I had never uttered one single word to them. They were known for blocking everyone who didn't agree with them, and everyone who was associated with them. Cowards. *sigh* Anyway, just thought you should know that you're not alone. It sucks to be shunned in such a way.

  • I delete annoying Sorority Life players on Facebook. As long as a person isn't cloggin up my email box, wall, guest book, feeds, chat or bulletins....I don't really care what their political and religious persuasion is. Yet I've lost real life friends over religion, just haven't lost a net friend to it yet.
