I am NOT a religious person but, to each their own.
Worship the way you want to worship and, most importantly, make it a
That’s my two cents about the whole thing.
But we all know it doesn’t work that way.
Some religious people like to try to convert others to their cause and some even get positions in government and try to push their beliefs on others that way.
And some of them just say RIDICULOUS things…are you ready for this?
Here’s what AskReddit users had to say.
1. Sounds like a real treat.
“My friend’s mom is mentally ill, and hyper religious. Bad combo. She was also a check forger.
She honestly believed that every time she passed a bad check at a supermarket and got away with it it was because Angels were protecting her. If she got busted, and banned from a store it was because Angels were protecting her, and had she not gotten caught she would have gotten food poisoning and died.
The woman literally had to drive 45 minutes to get to a supermarket because she was barred from every other one that was closer. And she’d refuse to pay for food with cash, because then the Angels wouldn’t have a chance to save her.”
“My parents were in the process of a divorce—my mom told the couples counselor that my dad (who doesn’t drink alcohol) had a drinking problem.
When it was brought up in counseling, my dad was confused, and when they both looked at my mom, she said “soda.”
She is fanatically religious. Glad he finally got free.”
3. Get outta here with that.
““She’s had diarrhea in her diaper, so she’s obviously sinned already.” –
My cousin talking about his 3 month old daughter at the time.”
“This is kinda weird but one day this one friend of mine was telling us why she turned vegetarian, it’s mainly because she saw this film about how animals are really mistreated and stuff and doesn’t wanna be part of it.
It was a good and wholesome conversation until this one really religious girl spoke up out of nowhere and said “yeah I know all these fast food places mistreat the animals but I know Chick-fil-A doesn’t, because they’re in the faith.”
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this comment every time I drive by a Chick-fil-A ever since.”
5. He was actually from Arkansas.
“Jesus was a Baptist. A SOUTHERN Baptist.
And that there were no dinosaurs. Those quite simply must be misidentified skeletons because A) God wouldn’t let his perfect creations go extinct, B) the earth is only six thousand years old anyway, therefore C) those are bones of modern animals that have been twisted, elongated, and reshaped by the process of burial and fossilization.
And D) God would have mentioned them specifically in the Bible so any fossils that can’t be explained away by the reasons above are due to God placing intentionally misleading evidence in the fossil record as a test of faith.
I dated a guy who felt that way about dinosaurs. I couldn’t believe it so i kept pushing for a reason. Those are the ones he gave me. The relationship didn’t last much longer than this conversation.
6. I’m in big trouble.
“TV shows are evil. They promote idol worshipping and they don’t have anything that is in the Bible.
That is how the devil reaches you. Every time you watch a series, 100 demons enter your body.”
7. It’s all good.
“That because they accepted Jesus into their heart, they can sin all they want.
Then just pray to Jesus for forgiveness at the end of the day and they’re all good.”
8. Doesn’t work that way.
“That I am clearly a Satan worshipper since I don’t believe in God…
Um no. I don’t believe in Satan either…”
9. Devil music!
“My grandma once told me when I was 7 that because I listen to music a lot, that when I die God will punish me by pouring melted lava in
Man that scared the heck out of me at the time.”
10. You’re friends with this person?
“I have a friend that believes that “God killed Steve Irwin for teaching children about evolution.”
Same friend was also offended at Lego Movie 2 for being “too gay.”. Because of the jokes with the sparkly vampire Lego. I tried to explain that if anything they were making gay bashing jokes with that scene because of everything said about Twilight.
But he still refuses. He also refuses to watch Endgame because of that one gay character in the support group at the beginning.”
11. Christian school.
“My parents put me in a private Christian school for high school. One of the teachers there told me that “anyone who isn’t Christian is incapable of good”.
He explained it by saying that Christians are motivated by doing things for god and simply because they’re right, but non-Christians do things for selfish reasons and that makes the act not good.
I asked about donations and charity work and he said people did it to be seen by others and be praised, I asked about anonymous donations and genuinely good people but he said that even those people were doing it because it made themselves feel good.
This guy still teaches kids.”
12. That’s reassuring.
“That because I’m Bipolar, I’m a demon sent by Satan to destroy everyone and everything around me.”
13. Oh, they’ll be fine!
“My SIL told me that it was fine if a person was wrongfully convicted of murder and executed, because God would look after them.
I asked her how she would feel if it happened to her husband (my brother) and she said, “Things like that don’t happen to people like him.””
How about you?
What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve heard a very religious person say?
