First off, I'm not an atheist. I was raised Catholic, which led to my disdain for organized religion, but not necessarily to my agnosticism on the verge of atheism. Also, this isn't about my religious views. This is about Christians. Not all Christians mind you, just the vast majority. There are a few sane Christians. Somewhere.......
Okay. So here it is. I'm really tired of people saying "thank God for this", or "praise Jesus for that" for every little fucking thing. Not, "thank God I survived this 50 car pile-up" but, "thank God for that chocolate cake I ate at lunch." or "praise Jesus for American Idol." Now, these are not actual things I have heard or read, just slightly more absurd versions of the inane bullshit I'm tired of hearing and reading. Please. Stop kissing your god's ass for fuck's sake. It's pathetic. Give yourself some credit. Maybe God didn't help you land that new job. Maybe, just MAYBE, IT WAS YOU! Maybe all the hard work YOU did, and all of the things YOU'VE learned made you the right person for the job.
This probably sounds harsh, but I'm just so fucking tired of hearing about "God". It's shit like this that pushes me ever closer to being an atheist. I find it amazing that people have so little faith in themselves. Even more amazing to me is the people who NEED "God". They are so afraid of death, or being alone, or taking responsibility for their lives that they rely on some, very possibly imaginary, figure to take care of them. I just don't get it.
I'm ending this rant now. I could go on forever.
