The saga with my aunt continues. It’s almost been a month now. One would think she’d found other things to do. But, nope. She’s still talking crap about me and has now decided to announce to all who will listen that the cause of my atheism is none other than the United States Army. I guess she still hasn’t forgiven me for running off and joining it because she’s declared that up until I did that I was perfectly sane. Of course, that’s contrary to everything she said that led to me running off, but what the hell, eh?
I’m sort of amused by the lengths she’s taking over this, but I’m also extremely frustrated by it all also. She’d go ape-shit if I told her the only reason she’s a Christian is because she’s a narcissistic bitch who gets off on being vicious towards people and the Bible makes a good baseball bat.
Yet, to some degree this is exactly what she’s been doing to me and she’s also taken it a step further this time. I’m not an atheist because I’ve thought about these things and reached a conclusion I think is correct which she thinks is wrong. I’m not even an atheist in this latest declaration. I’m just repeating what I’ve been brainwashed to say.
I’ve decided to give up. She’s just going to keep repeating her line of bullshit while ignoring or misrepresenting everything I say in return. However, I will be keeping tally of the things she does state that get back to me (and explaining them to those who bring them back, of course).
So far, she’s more or less stating that I’m claiming to an atheist because:
- Anger – Jesus kicked my sandcastle over so I’m pretending he doesn’t exist.
- Insanity – It’s obvious. Only crazy people don’t believe in gods.
- Satan – “I don’t believe in gods” is code for “I worship Satan”.
- Evil – I prefer my puppies with broken ribs and my babies rare.
- Brainwashing – I was taken to a dark room and tortured until I swore I didn’t believe in gods.
She’s also called me ‘non-human’, but I’m not sure where that fits in. She (and her sister) called me the Devil’s Own when I was kid. Should I hold out hope that I’ve finally been promoted to a devil? One can dream, I guess.
Perhaps I should send her this song by Metallica. It fits her in so many ways.
