When they say they're atheists, when they say they're Christians
Is it just me on this? Although I generally avoid any discussions of religion, faith, belief, and the rest - I generally stop at self-labelling as "Anglican", and then only if I have to - but it seems unavoidable that people want to say something about their opinion, usually "I don't believe in God" if atheist, and questioning if Christian "Are you [saved], [a Christian] etc. Then something of a formulaic perspective that articulates the understanding derived from grandma, televangelism or pre-adolescent Sunday school. Frustrates me, a lot, which is why I refrain from such conversations. I feel we are very ill-informed as societies and people such that it is very difficult to have meaningful discussion. Is it just me?
