AND I AM JUST SOOOOO FRUSTRATED!!! :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
I have this person I know from back in my protestant days taht I was unable to keep in touch with over the years because he was in prison. Well, he’s out and off probation and he is deciding to focus his newfound energy for god though protestantism on yours truly.
Basically, he started posting things on facebook, and telling me to respond to them. I did, and when I did he started just tearing apart everything I was saying even though I was AGREEING with him and then making judgement calls about me following a “works based” faith and how I am “counting on religion to save me.” well, I basically backed him into a corner on that and told him that if he wants to bash catholicism to me, have at. I have facts and knowledge that I could pound him into the ground with, but I absolutely WILL NOT TOLERATE someone telling me what I believe even when I have said SPECIFICALLY that I do not believe what they are accusing me of!!!:mad:
Anyway, this isn’t anything new, I dealt with a huge round of this kind of crud when I first became catholic from my protestant friends. (and seeing as how I was in the ministry program, I was pretty well connected) the problem is I figured anyone who was gunna make a go of it had their chance to get it in. Apparently this guy was just lurking. :mad:
Then after we had this HUGE discussion and he played nice and apologized he posts on his facebook “I hate religion.” Obviously, because he was debating with a cathoic we weren’t discussion God, we were discussing the “man made god” that relgion was, because clearly that’s what I believe!!
GAH! I am just SO frustrated! Thanks guys for letting me vent. I just thought all this crud was done. I wonder how many more I have to put up with before it finally stops. :mad:
