It happened again...

RE: It happened again...
Wow that sucks. No clue what I would have done in that situation. I think it's safe to say I wouldn't be going back to church with my parents, though.
“Love is the only bow on Life’s dark cloud. It is the morning and the evening star. It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.

It is the air and light of every heart – builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first to dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody – for music is the voice of love.

Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to Joy, and makes royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven, and we are gods.” - Robert. G. Ingersoll

its just so hard to balance wanting to please my father and sticking to my guns. There are things about religion that in all honesty I can say truly don't bother me because my family would be pleased. Like if my grandmother were to do something like this perhaps I'd feel a small twinge of hurt in the far back of my mind but she's 88, and from Alabama. So I'm not going to be upset at her outlook on life. I know she would pray over me in genuine love and concern without an agenda.

Yea that's rough. Most I can say is learn to pick your battles. :/

Well me being daddy's girl and wanting to make him happy I decided it wouldn't hurt anything to go to church with him this past Sunday. We were supposed to go first of the year but got a bug. Anyway I sat at the back because my bible is on my phone and I didn't want to be a distraction and I'm already quite obvious in a church of only 40 people. Pastor Singleton whom I normally get along with quite well, and I never thought would embarrass me, did the usual pass the plate, then call to altar. Well in such a small church no one actually comes to the altar. He just comes down the rows. My mother stood up. He comes over to her and I thought he was going say some simple generic bless Sister Sample and her family blah blah... But NO!! He goes on! "Call down a healing on her child! That this infirmity cease. Blah blah. God did not intend blah blah" Well my ears were ringing with rage. I was humiliated. I remember white flashing in front of me. Somehow I made it outside and to the car by myself. And I guess he let church out early after I stormed out. They found me by the car. I think I yelled something about not being anyone's Tiny Tim and they could find their inspiration porn elsewhere. I'm big time at the end of my rope for dealing with with religious people looking down on me. Im not less than anyone. Any advice on how to deal with this more calmly?

Stand up quickly and shout "LORDY, LORDY GOD IS REAL FOR I AM HEALED" really lay it on thick, then after a suitably funny amount of time go "not really" and sit down.
Bet they don't do it again.

Really, I've seen wonderful thing happen in church services and I've learned many things that are good for my life so, I considered church a good place to learn many things.
What BQ experienced was neither good or learned and the pastor should, if he hasn't already, apologize.

God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.

I suppose we can learn things from many places if we're willing. I learned many things not to do during my wild partying days that could be considered as good things to know.
