    Default Jesus Loves Me!

    I was feeling a bit down and lonely yesterday, so I decided to go into town (Oxford) and visit as many pubs as I could.

    As I came out of one pub and headed for another, a man smiled at me and said:

    "Jesus loves you my friend."

    "Who me?" I said, nearly stumbling over.

    The guy gave me some leaflets from "The Redeemed Christian Church of God" with info about special events and programmes etc...

    I hate religion - all religions. I spent a great deal of my life in a religion and I want NOTHING more to do with any of them.

    But for a moment I felt like going with him to whatever meeting. Just so that there might be some people who would be interested in me, give me some attention, affection, and even love.

    Don't laugh - I know it's so stupid.

    Of course that's what attracts many people to religion - lost lonely and unhappy souls, looking for attention, to be part of a group and of course - the love of Jesus.

    All the atheists on the planet have always loved you too. We're just not prepared to harass you about it.

    Richard Dawkins works in Oxford, go hang out with him. Acutally there's plenty of atheist societies over there.

    Agreed from another athiest here.

    Cosmic dancer I know exactly how you feel, when I first left islam like you I was so lost, the community connection had vanished and my name became dust never to be mentioned again amongst people I had loved once.

    I remember walking past a church once and considering going in, just to feel connected to something again, but my hatred of all things religious, especially abrahamic stopped me, pretending to believe wasn't worth the human connection it could offer.

    Don;t feel ashamed of any feelings you get on your journey, it gets easier and you learn to live with the loss after awhile. Make new connections with people who understand, who accept you no matter what your beliefs, when you are ready, after all it''s no rush.

    I understand though, really I do.

    That's if he even existed according to some. Religion could be so funny if it wasn't so dangerous.
