Christian Abuse on Facebook

Yesterday, I posted a status update on facebook and one of the comments that was left was from a friend of a friend. It was overly religious and basically said that someday I will be tortured for all eternity, but that as a Christian they wouldn’t say, ‘I told you so’ but instead say, ‘ha ha, you were warned’ or something of that nature. It didn’t even really address my status update, but was just an excuse to proselytize.

Now, I couldn’t care less about the comment itself; my inbox is filled with such nonsense and I obviously take it as seriously as I do threats that Voldemort is coming. However, what bothers me is that this person isn’t even my friend and yet he or she felt the need to go onto my page and tell me (a complete stranger) that I will be and ought to be tortured for all eternity.

Sure, I could change my privacy settings, but that isn’t my point. The point is that he or she felt it was okay to tell someone they don’t know that they should be tortured for all eternity. I want to send a message that this type of crap is not okay. It is not civil and it is in fact immoral. I guarantee that if an atheist left a comment critical to religion on a Christian’s page that they were not friends with (or even friends with), they would be reported and it would be considered an instance of angry atheists pushing our non-belief.

For the most part however, atheists don’t do that. We tend to keep our non-belief confined to our own page or that of our friends. We tend to be polite and we would never tell anyone that they should be tortured for all eternity. That’s beyond just rude, it is downright immoral.

We shouldn’t accept that kind of crap from religious believers and we should let them know it. Their beliefs are not just wrong they are rude, hateful, and immoral. If they come to your page, you should let them know that and then report them!

I’m not a fan of reporting people for exercising their free speech, but I think we should start doing it. They won’t think twice before reporting us for less and we have to start sending a message.

The problem is that they don’t think what they are saying or doing is hateful. They don’t understand that when they are telling people that they should be tortured for all eternity, that that could possibly be considered rude, hateful, or violent. It seems like such a no-brainer to me, but religious faith has a way of warping people’s minds.

    Instead of reporting the person, why not just unfriend them? That is my first response when I encounter bigotry or extreme stupidity on Facebook or Twitter.

      The problem is that 1. I was not friends with them in the first place and 2. that isn’t the point of the issue.

    I closed my Facebook account in December because I was getting a lot of posts from self-proclaimed christians, telling me that if I was not a christian, I had no business celebrating Christmas or living in the United States, because “Christmas is for Christians” and “America is a Christian country”. And it was the same blurb. People just forwarded someone’s brainless, loveless, careless rant. Even, like you, people I don’t even know. People who didn’t know I’m a freethinker.
    I personally wouldn’t send such ugliness out randomly (to an individual that pisses me off, maybe). I would NEVER tell someone they aren’t American because they don’t believe as I do. (Or I’d be telling a lot of Republican Tea Party people–including family members–to get out.) Tempting though it may be . . .
