So recently I've been super stressed out about what I am doing for High-school. Being Homeschooled, I have to find a co-op, curriculum, ect, that I want to use. I finally found an awesome co-op, well what I thought was an awesome one. We applied. And we were denied.
OK! I am going to say it, I am NOT a Christian. Yes I am an atheist. People make that such a dirty word.
That doesn't mean I am not a good person. I genuinely love life, people, and the world around me. I respect other peoples religions, I don't criticize, overlook, or judge people of religion. Heck most of my friends are religious. The problem is, people can't treat me that way back. I thought Christianity was about treating others the way you want to be treated.... so if YOU want ME to accept your beliefs, than you should accept mine.
But... apparently that is not how it works...
I have never met a Christian that fully accepts my beliefs yet in my life. That is sad and needs to change. It's like racism, but with religion. Being a homeschooler that is an atheist, surrounded by christians and religion, I feel like a third class citizen, that no one cares about, even though I KNOW I deserve better.
SO I CHALLENGE ALL OF YOU! Whatever you believe, to just accept everyone, because it sure would help the world be a little happier, and maybe just maybe you can make someones day a little brighter.
Just be kind.
It's that easy
