Can I have just one post to strike back against some of the vulgarity we have had to live with coming from relentless evangelical christians? I mean no disrespect to those readers whom I know are devout. But I do want to speak out about the offensive treatment we have survived in the wake of Tonico’s death.
In our most vulnerable moment, is it right that we get bibles shoved in our faces? Do christians have no shame? Our experience was that while in the emergency room at the hospital, learning that our father, and husband, has died – a vulture christian moved in to suggest that we should embrace her religious perspective. She provided a shiny new bible for us to find a new way forward.
Gag me. Shame on her. Shame on her church that sends her to an emergency room to lurk around for grieving families. Shame on their whole strategy. Gag me.
We will survive this loss on our own terms, thank you very much. We don’t need your self righteous crap. Back off.
I wish religious people would take a little time to see how their proselytizing is actually offensive.
OK – done. End rant.
