Oh brightpearl that's horrid. I remember in high school, my driver's ed partner asked the teacher to be paired up with someone else when she found out that I wasn't of the dominate religion in the area. The teacher announced it in class and I had to drive alone the rest of the term.

The fear is so irrational.

I'd stay in your class even if you are a heathen! ESPECIALLY if you are a heathen!

I just got a call from my vet. My little naughty kitty braved hell and high water to get a chicken bone last night. I have four cats. The other three can't figure out the basics of the waterbowl. The white one could solve a rubix cube with a blind fold on. Before we got the bone from him, it was gone.

The vet had us watch him over night and gave him an xray today. The chicken bones are... past the point of doing damage shall we say. But they DID find a bullet in his gut A beebee... we got him as a feral about a year old and he's been a great cat. I'm sure it happened before we got him as he is indoors only now.

I am feeling a strong desire to take a beebee gun and find someone and shoot them in the gut.

is that wrong?

Thanks for the non-religious-discriminating wellwishing, everyone. Just to clarify, I'm the teacher of the class, not a student, so I hafta stay in it anyway. Half of why it was a little upsetting is that the student may not go elsewhere to get the information she needs. I don't really think her religion is relevant to the situation -- all of us are capapble of fear and intolerance, regardless of what we think we are.

And, I was just kidding about the Druid thing. I'm actually a voodoo priestess.


I did tell her I almost never kill a chicken in class, but she wasn't to be dissuaded.

If you can find live chicken you should bring it to class and pretend you are going to kill it, then don't and tell us how they reacted.

more conventionally i'm an atheist so i'm the most hateful of them all. polls show that americans would rather throw their lot in with a wicked priestess than an atheist because at least wicked priestesses believe in SOMETHING. so take comfort knowing that your pupil would likely choose you over me.

I was just kidding about TIP being a Druid, too. I have it on good authority that he's a VIP (get it?) at this church.

And I'm not really a voodoo priestess, but I do believe in the power of this website.

Oh, and this one.

In case you find something you like: Plug 'n' Pray.

I sometimes pray to the yellow flying pillow with corner tassels. It's name is Cord. This came to me in a dream about twenty years ago and I made the mistake in telling some friends about it. Yep - friends never forget.

Aye, you're right! Mainly asked because Xianity is the majority faith in your place. Wonder whether members of other relig./spirit. minorities (who might get their own load of bias or wry looks) could be that intolerant. But after all ignorance (and resulting fear) knows no boundaries...
