I'm waiting for the intervention for my soul from my sister who has been getting more and more evangelical.

We just had a conversation recently where she said that she was really concerned about the state of my father's soul and how she was so sad that he, as a Catholic, was upset that she wanted to get a "real Christian baptism" (her words), after her actual Catholic baptism as a baby.

I had a very very hard time not rolling my eyes when she started to tear up about it, "I just want to make sure I can see him in heaven, you know?"

So really I'm just waiting for her to get around to me and my weirdo atheist "soul".

I hear wording like this from Christian a LOT. And I don't think it means what the words together sound like they mean. I think what is really being communicated when people say this is a rejection sensitivity. If everyone is on board with their beliefs, then the speaker isn't being rejected and so everything is a-okay. If people have different beliefs, the speaker thinks they must be thinking bad things about them/about to reject them.

Conversely, I also see this from people who are quick to reject people and are thus projecting unto others what they would be feeling/doing in the same situation. So, while I can see their fear in the statement, I rarely can feel empathy. In fact, statements like those are, to me, a red flag that someone cannot be trusted. And since I have impulse control issues with my speech, I will avoid someone who has said those words because I know it will only be a matter of time before they turn on me.

It's brainwashing.

There's something particular about the nondenominational version of xtianity that does this to people.

The person you responded to didn't respond to me, and I'm not the person you responded to, yet I'm here responding to you.
