Why can't you just be normal? (For Non-Christians)

Okay, partial rant here... If one more person tells me I need to just "be normal" (meaning be Christian) I think I just might stab someone!

Is this something everyone gets told, or do these assholes save it for me? I just got a message informing me that "Good parents" are Christian and if I really loved my kids I would just "be normal" for their sakes...

  • I know this post said for non-christians, but my curiosity got the best of me and I couldn't help but click.
    To the people who said that to you, I can only say that if they read their bibles they would learn that to be Christ-like is to be non-judgmental and to love everyone like the family that they are (according to the bible you are a child of God, everyone is, not trying to force it on you). So yeah, they definitely aren't being nice and loving so....just forget about them.

  • NORMAL... It depends on your perspective doesn't it ? However,---intolerance is always ABNORMAL, I think.
