Day 4: An Open Letter to Christians

Dear Christians,

I am a lost cause. Please leave me alone. I am tired of hearing you preach to me about how great Jesus is. It’s extremely annoying. Also, when you say you feel sorry for me, it sounds very condescending. For you to think that my life has to be horrible and without purpose because I don’t believe in your god is, quite frankly, insulting.

My life is not empty and I don’t feel as if I’m missing something. If anything I’m more fulfilled now than when I was Christian. I can fully enjoy life, my family, and the universe. I can live in my absolute truth without fear of punishment by an omnipotent and omnipresent being. I don’t have to spend hours begging for forgiveness from or offering hollow praise to a god I’m not sure is there. I don’t have to spend two days a week listening to someone tell me I’m going to hell if I don’t do everything in a book.

I spend my days knowing that I am in control of my life. That is a wonderful feeling. When I left Christianity behind, I finally felt free. It felt like a twenty pound weight was lifted from my shoulders. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

So Christians, the next time you think about telling me about your god, stop yourself. You’ll only be wasting your time.

Sincerely,

A very happy agnostic(ish) woman

P.S.-This (obviously) goes out to the proselytizing, super asshole, mega judgemental Christians that seek to convert everyone in the world whether they like it or not. Everybody else is pretty much cool with me.
