I have been reading some posts on here about people getting texted or told reasons to not atheist by their religious friends and I was wondering who had or is experiencing this may have occurred once, twice or on a regular basis.
On fb I get a lot of it. I figure that the religious Johnnys see the post and share it publicly, so it goes to all their facebook friends. If they send it as a private message, I block them. Lots of relatives blocked. Lots of old friends blocked. Everyone else either ignores it, like they should, or have left their parents church and have become Wiccan, Druid, Atheist/ agnostic, etc. Some have even thanked me for giving them the courage to come out of their religious closet and proclaim their new faith, or lack thereof. The few die hards have finaly given up on me, and we only see each other at funerals, or family reunions.
I am not on anyone's "salvation list" to my knowledge but I may be on one or two people's "backslider's list". Those would be extended family members who subscribe to "once saved, always saved", and are therefore more likely to see me as a prodigal son who needs to come back home. As in all other things, they pray in vain.
