I hope no one takes offence to this.. it isn't meant to be a nasty post.
I am not religous in any way neither do I cone from a religous family.
I prefer to belive in science as to how the world was made. It would be nice if there was a god, and if there was ever scientific proof I'd jump on board.
My little sister is married to a born again christian and has also become devoutly religous. During our conversations over the net she used to talk about religoin and would always say things like "I needed god in my life" etc..
My response was: "I am very happy you have found god and that it has enriched your life, but I have my own beliefs and choose to stay that way". I asked her not to discuss religion with me so it wouldnt interfere with our relationship and I wouldn''t offend her.
Due to other family reasons, my sister no longer talks to me, but over the last year of so I've been getting religous spam emails from her.
Why is it that many religous people feel it is ok to force their views onto others, but as non religous people we have to be respectable to their views.
I would never dream of sending her information on being an athiest.
