There I am, having a lunch with my best friend. We watch babies and toddlers together at some church 6 hours a week. You do, too. So she says that the new person heading this – let’s call it mommy’s morning out thingy – is thinking of this:
“Maybe we should just have Christians watching the kids.”
My best friend is Jewish. You are an Atheist. Oh dear!
So there we are having lunch and she passes this sorta gossipy info to me and I’m really…I mean I don’t know how to express this civilly…I’m just floored.
What is this world coming to when some church organization worries about the religious affiliation of someone watching kids who can’t even talk yet? And, are Christians so much better than other people?
This is disgusting to me.
Of course I came home and told you right away. It didn’t surprise you. So I said that if they let you and my friend go I’m quitting, too. What will they do about the Buddhist lady working there?
I know. I know. It’s a church. They can do what they want. They aren’t bound by freedom of religion laws and upon what our country was founded. God has spoken to them – especially – and made churches free to treat people as they interpret the Bible.
I’m really pissed. I’m thinking nothing will probably come of this but it could and so I’m pissed. Why would I expect anything different from organized religion? Oh well 😦
