I have a relative who posts frequent "Jesus" items on Facebook. So many, in fact, that I decided to "unfollow" her. I don't think she can see that I blocked her, but even if she did, I don't feel apologetic because I don't spam my beliefs on social media.
NOOOOOOO I do it all the time I love that new mute option. It allows you to mute someone for up to a month at a time I think. I use that for some family and friends who need to share bible stuff all the damn time. Of course they probably mute me for my knitting and dog posts.
Heck, no. My sister is a very conservative, very religious person (and closet racist). She used to fill up my FB page with her proselytizing and attacks against Obama to the point where I would have to scroll down really far just to see something else. Finally, I unfriended her. She was upset, naturally, even though she knew my beliefs, and said she had the right to post whatever she wanted. I agreed with her, but I told her that I also have the right to not see all that on my page.
I don't mind it so much with family and friends even though it is annoying how god is always answering their prayers using someone else. I unfollowed my father when he started praising god for electing Trump.
I see red every time I get a post from Minions Quotes praising god.
No it is just enforcing healthy interpersonal boundaries and exercising your freedom of association.
It's only intolerant if you try to force the other person to behave in some way other than what they want to. Just because you allow others to be as they are, doesn't mean you choose to be around them.
Intolerant religious people try to get you to conform to their rulesets to make them comfortable. That's not what you're doing.
My family posts too much religious shit on FB. I have unfollowed all who have not unfriended me. If FBers are not related to me, I usually unfriend them for posting religious stuff. I have only blocked a few people, one being my high school best friend who attacked me in private chat over my politics and irreligiousness. I have since forgiven her (because that is the unchristian thing to do), but I still do not allow her access to my posts.
I'm very glad for the "Unfollow" feature on Facebook. I can stop seeing people's posts, but we're still friends. There are a lot of reasons I choose this option, but too much pseudo science from my new age friends, too much religion from my Christian friends, and too many food pictures from my friends who place way too much value on food. And ANYBODY who posts a Nickleback video.
No, it is normal to block, mute, or unfollow people who post stuff you don't want to see. There is an option to see fewer posts from people too.
My grad school "wife" posts constantly, like 5+ times a day. I just hide a post every once in a while which means only a small percentage of her posts go into my feed.
Practice good self care.
The intolerance is theirs, not yours. Block them like a brick wall. What they are doing can reach the point of harassment. Make like Trump, and Build a Wall. You don't need that crap!!! The other option is to find an atheist youtube blogger and every time she sends you a religious post, send an episode of your blogger of choice. I think the BIBLE says "An eye for an eye"
