I'm not religious either.. I think everyone is entitled to there own opinions and life styles.. I've never been religious but I don't mind if people say "ill pray for you" etc as long as like everyone else has said it's not shoved down my throat.. Don't worry about all of the people that attacked you.. We're all hormonal pregnant woman don't take it personally hahaha.. When I'm feeling snappy I usually eat some chocolate and get over it hahaha :p
Thank you guys. It makes me feel good that I am hearing so many of you saying, I'm not religious but I will let my children grow up and believe whatever they want to because it is their life. You are all going to make such incredible mothers. Just because of that. Just love unconditionally. And I'm usually pretty good at just brushing off comments but now that I'm pregnant it just makes me so mad for some reason. I'm not used to having to catch myself from snapping at people for just the tiniest things but for some reason I just can't hold it in anymore lol
I grew up a Jehovia Witness. Now I'm currently living with a man out of wedlock and I'm pregnant with his baby. I'm not saying anything i just find it annoying when people do the same thing(I'll pray for you etc). I'm sure people find comfort in god or praying but i dont. I'm religious when the time is right. But when someone says that it's gods plan or anything like that it makes me mad. I don't know why but it does. And i haven't been to church in over 5 years give or take. Nor will I go to church when my baby is here. Regularly religious people are judgemental and I'm not raising my child to believe that if they pray for something it will happen. I am a firm believer in if you want something you will make it happen not god. If God will do anything is to give you the strength to do what you want to accomplish.
We arnt religious and I posted asking others who arnt raising thier children on church and ppl flipped. I didnt say anything derogatory. I dont mind when ppl say religious things as long as they dont try to shove it down my throat. I've done my research and made my decision if my child wants to be religious then that's fine but he will know there are many diff religions.
I'm not religious at all. Sometimes I don't like when people reply with godly answers I don't mind the I'll pray for you or anything because I just think of it as being in someone's thoughts. But I know what you mean its nice to connect with people who don't put religion before logic.
Geez :/ I feel really bad now. . .sometimes I say "ill pray for you" not even thinking :( im sorry if I ever posted it to yalls posts lady. I dont wanna offend anyone :(
Me and my fiance are atheists livin in the bible belt. Lol gosh, i get so many people wanting me to convert...
I just tend to ignore when people say things like that. I figure everyone is entitled to their own beliefs now if they try to shove their beliefs down my throat I have an issue. My children will be allowed to make their own religious choice when they get older and I will not allow anyone to tell them they have to believe in anything.
I'm agnostic and my husband is an atheist.
Cool, yeah I got attacked and then my post was taken down. I just don't need people saying "god bless you and your baby" and "gods plan..." Like, thank you but I don't need to hear it. I just need logic in my life right now especially.
I didn't see your other post but both my husband and myself are atheist.
