what's up with some Religious people? is having a husband at war and somking on my porch a sin?

Our neighbors across the courtyard are very religious. They have crosses hung all over the outside of their house when we moved here they Brought us fresh baked bread and a religious card. I went over and stuck a thank you card in their door. So fast forward a few months my husband was deployed. I put a blue star flag in the window and I use to smoke on the porch in the summer. Now they just stare like we are trash it also doesn't help my husband we next door to my chatty nosey neighbors house next door to tell her teenager to keep her music down (her mom wasn't home at time). Also I noticed a nice lady i met one house over who use to be very sweet is friends with the Religious people and she looks at us the same way lol. You would think people would be nicer with my husband being deployed and me being in a new town.. Tonight i put hearts in the window and they closed thier blinds like some criminal was casing thier house???

  • I'm TOTALLY with beeky... if that is where it is headed, don't let it get you down- have FUN with it!

    I had neighbors like that in a very small town we lived in- only, when I caught the old lady torturing and drowning squirrels (that she had caught in HUMANE traps) it all ended... I totally recorded her doing this and anonymously sent videos to a couple of different sources. And she treated me like I was the freak... OMG!
    the stories she circulated around the neighborhood! (same neighbor who reported up to CPS for being "Them Atheists that sacrifice their babies to the devil", i believe is how she put it... wow, people are effed up!

  • Are you sure that they're judging you? Seems like you're judging them based on a religious card???

  • Just have fun with it. Wave and say HI with a huge smile on your face. That drives people crazy. I'd have a big huge US flag on my porch and yellow ribbons up until my husband came home.

  • I don't know what's worse, that or if they were constantly trying to recruit you into their church! If the neighbors are listening to her, especially after meeting you and talking with you, then you really don't want to be friends with them. I'm with everyone else, have fun with it!
