can't believe some people's mind are soooo closed

Today a co-work was talking to a customer she knew. about the loss of her husband and after the customer left my co-work says " that's to bad I feel so sorry for her at least he was a Christian, so he'll be ok. " okay I'm not a Christian. I'm Pagan, so maybe I'm missing something. but what happened to that thou shall not judge thing? AT LEAST HE WAS A CHRISTIAN? so what? if he was Jewish or something else he wouldn't be ok. what about all those devoted Christian Priest that have their way (for years & years) with the kids? Well at least he was a Christian Man he'll be ok. give me a break. I'm glad I'm a Pagan.

  • I doubt she meant it in a nasty way. Christians believe that Christians go to heaven... so that would be where she was coming from. If that person hadn't be a Christian she would have been sad, because she would believe he DIDN'T go to heaven. Wouldn't it make you sad if someone was meant to not be in eternal happiness?
    If what she says bothers you, and she does it a lot, ask her politely to save the talk for outside work or keep it to a minimum. Or counter back about YOUR beliefs (respectfully, of course) and have a convo about the differences. Some people can be annoying about it. Ask her to tone it down. You can't warrant a complaint unless you have tried to DO SOMETHING about the situation!

  • I understand your point, but they'll never get it, and all you'll get is a load of manure.

  • AT LEAST HE WAS A CHRISTIAN. impliess that all others a doomed for hell. and it would bother you too if you had to listen to these kind of comments all day long when it is not your beliefs. wouldn't you be bothered If I talked all day about my Goddesses and implied you were wrong in everything you thought, just because it's not what I think.

    It is rude and implies superiority. It's sickening that some think they are better than others.
