Jeebus I get tired of this stuff. It’s not enough that almost everyone I know is Christian. It’s not enough that there is a church on every corner. It’s not enough that they occupy every position of power and most of the media outlets are at least sympathetic to their cause. No, I must continually see their message that my life could somehow be better if I would just join their team.
What bothers me is the thought process behind the idiot who scratched his John 3:16 on the back of this truck. Did he think that the rest of the world is unsaved and needed to hear this yet again or was his message just a random attempt to reach an atheist like me? Or, is he just professing his faith in some new and edgy way? Is this the new dockworkers ministry?
I know I’m ranting but it the holidays and frankly I get fed up with Christian message at this time of year. I run into it every day. Just yesterday I had a woman tell me to make sure and say Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays. She was worried about the war on Christmas. Of course she said this as I was standing next to my Muslim friend. We both just let it pass.
I’m in lite posting mode because of a higher than normal volume of stress from my real job. Instead of the year winding down I find myself at peak capacity and marching toward the end of the year with every day booked. So my blogging is suffering. In fact, I’m heading to Tucson this evening for a couple of days of project management stress, so if I get a chance to post over the next few days I’ll be lucky. What’s a working stiff to do? I like blogging, but I like money more.
