Lately I’ve been getting a ton of friend requests on Facebook. I don’t know why, and I’m trying to filter through them as best as I can. A lot of these people, though, appear to be conservative Christian. So now they are sending me all this Christian stuff, particularly please forward messages, to my IM on Facebook. I hate forwarding stuff like that and I’m not Christian, so this is getting quite frustrating.
I know that sometimes I do like Christian memes, if I agree with them, but I never post that stuff on my own wall. So I don’t know why people peg me as Christian. So I finally put up something on my Facebook about this:
“Hey, so I know that while sometimes I do like Christian/God posts, I want you all to know that I’m actually a Pagan and am polytheistic. So when you send me Christian stuff to my IM, that would be why I don’t reply. I’m into Goddess worship (Gaia, in particular). So, what I’m trying to say is that, if you’re Christian, please don’t send me Christian this or that to my private messenger. Or forward chains. I might give a thumbs up or something, but I’m not going to be forwarding anything like that on to other people. Thanks!”
And, I’m going to start to say something to people who send me Christian stuff privately, mainly that I’m not Christian so I’m not going to be reading what you are sending me. I think I might start saying this to people to when they say Christian phrases to me in person as well. I’m just kind of tired of the whole thing.
And again, I don’t know why this happens, it’s like, do I come across as Christian or something? Because I’m not. It’s just annoying and confusing really.
Anyways, thanks for reading! Feel free to comment below.
