Okay, so, I’m at work today, and my good friend Ashley and I are talking about religion. Turns out she’s a Catholic, and I told her that I was Greek Orthodox by birth, but agnostic by choice. She seemed confused.
“What’s agnostic?”, she asked.
“To be agnostic means to not nessecarily believe in God, yet still keep an open mind.(Thats an okay definition, right?)”, I replied.
“Whaaaaat??! You don’t belive in God!!!”
“No, Ash, thats not what I sa…”
“How could you not belive in God?”
And so ensued another hour of her pestering me about God.
“Jeff you should go to church. Jeff, believe in God. Just do it.”
“Because God IS real.”
“I never said God wasn’t real.”
BLAH BLAH BLAH
Now, I love Ashley, she’s one of the coolest people I know, but this just scared me. I kinda surprised me too. I would never expect something like that from her. Either way, we’ve agreed to continue our “conversation” next sunday(next time we see eachother).
What do you think I should say to her, to get her off my back and respect my decision, without sounding like an asshole?
