I believe in God, but I don't believe in the institution of church.

My mom is a pastor and very judgmental. I vowed never to be like her which is why I avoid going to church. This has her convinced I'm a rebel going to hell. I know where I stand and am at peace with that.

I find and believe that a majority (read:NOT ALL)of those who follow organized religion are judgemental assholes...and that if you do not follow the rules of their invisible man in the sky or their beliefs, then you are going to end up in this imaginary land of fire and brimstone and tortured for the rest of your immortal life...yea right.

I know a VERY VERY pushy christian and I am trying to prove to him it is people like HIM that give Christianity a bad name and that many the NON Christians have a bad view of Christians because of pushiness.

I don't have a perception of Christians as a whole. Like with any other group of people, it is the INDIVIDUAL. I don't like blanket statements or blanket judgements. My dad is a Christian and an AMAZING guy. He thinks I'm wrong, but he doesn't push and is NEVER ugly about it. One that I believe has genuinely good intentions and has a CONVERSATION with me rather than preach at me. My mom...is the opposite. Got very ugly and I had to go as far as block her calls and texts.

I don't know. I kind of think it's silly and all relative. I am not a fan of anyone who speaks to me about religion, because it's personal and I was raised that it's rude. So IMO anyone who invites me to their church "gives Christians a bad name" by that standard. Really they just give themselves a bad name. I don't think most people are dumb enough to judge a group of people by one person who claims to have something in common with them. If he has brown hair, does he give brunettes a bad name too?
