An Open Letter To A Friend

Dear friend,

Let me start this by reminding you that I love you, and you know I do. I love you and your kids tremendously!

You asked me my opinion on my views…”how do you know god is imaginary?” is asking my opinion on  a sensitive subject that we disagree on. I gave you my full and honest opinion. I do that. I don’t lie. I don’t make up an answer that I think one would like. I mean, I am an honest person. That does not make me ignorant. Telling you my opinion on something you disagree on does not make me ignorant. I know I didn’t experience the things you did that led you go religion, and I am thankful that I did not have to. That was an unfortunate thing that you went through and I’m glad you are alive today. No need to curse at me about it. I’m not dismissing what you went through, I just cannot relate to it. I know you saw what you say you saw, that is wonderful. It’s just not something that I believe in.

You being quiet about your views on homosexuality and the like, which is another thing we disagree on, is your choice. I am vocal about gay rights. Or as I like to call them, human rights. Love is love. You can love who you want. That is what I believe.

“Pray for the non-believers, they need it more than anyone else does” was your status update after our discussion. I hear that a lot…that people will pray for me…that their congregations will pray for me. It is okay if you want to pray for me. Pray until your heart is full. I know that it does not affect me. I don’t believe in it. Nonbelievers do not believe in prayer. If that makes you feel better, by all means, be my guest. I can ask you not to pray for me, but I know that wish will not be respected.

I am vocal about my opinions on Twitter. I’m not censored there. There is a reason I update twitter more than Facebook. I rarely use Facebook.

Again, I love you a lot. You know this! And your opinions on me and my views do not change this at all. As long as you don’t directly ask me questions about my views, I will not talk to you about my views. I mean, that is what we were doing before right? You are one of my closest friends. Nothing will change what I think of you.

I love you.

-Brittany

A note to readers: Don’t follow me on twitter if you will be hurt/offended/disgusted with my opinions. I mean, I am myself there. I always will be.

    I love you too Britt and I have no hard feelings.

    I only unfollowed you on Twitter because I just can’t look at those things that much. I think every single tweet I caught from you today was anti-believer. A heads up that you tweet about that stuff often would have been nice. I didn’t delete you on FB or your number from my phone and I am not going to stop speaking to you because like you said, I am one of your closest friends and that goes the same for you.

    -hugs-

    I agree with you, lets continue not discussing things we passionately disagree about.

      I didn’t know you were following me on twitter. I usually don’t pay attention to who is following me. Fridays I look at who followed me through the week and follow them back because a lot of times, people follow and then unfollow like a day later because they are just looking for followers.

      But I’m glad that you understand because I mean, you asked, I answered, you got mad, I didn’t. I’m over it. I got out what I needed to say!

      Love you girl!!! <3
