Religion at work

These last few days, its been very uncomfortable at work because people kept bringing up religion at work. Because that Farewell died. The weird thing is, whenever people bring up religion at work, its always bashing on Christianity… Being a devoted Catholic, it’s not easy to sit through that.

The worst part is that your religion is not something you can outwardly show (unless you are Muslim I guess). Race, gender, and maybe even homosexuality is something that can be displayed so that people who have opinions about you can shut the f88k up. But religion… unless you want me to carry a fat cross around with me all day, NO ONE will be able to tell I am Catholic. That’s another point, no one can tell I am Catholic because I don’t go around hitting people over the head with a bible, or telling people they will go to hell. In fact, you will often find me joking about immortal things and making lewd gestures.

Anyways, my point is, I don’t think its fair for people to talk shit about religion at work. You don’t go to work and make fun of Asian people, females, or gays, so why do you think its ok to go to work and make fun of religion?? I don’t make fun of you, so shut the f$$ck up. If you want to make fun of me, make fun of my clothes, my hair, or my small p3n1s, don’t make fun of something that matters to me.

If you are reading this, you will ask, “why didn’t you say anything? , why didn’t you defend yourself?” WTF??? Why do I have to defend myself? I live in SF, the most diverse place on earth, why the hell do I have to defend myself against prejudice and hatred? I am not living in the South in 1940… :roll:

    This is the first time I’ve come across this site but I could not resist posting…I’m not sure what world you live in or why u would think that it is in to be Muslim when the total opposite is true…hello we have a conservative republican in office because there are sooooo many devoted Christians/Catholics in this country…I’m dealing currently dealing with the opposite of your situation I’m working with a group of people that are devout Christians to the point where there are many innappropriate conversations held in the office…I just don’t think religion and politics should be discussed in the office period because it creates a negative atmosphere there’s always going to be someone that disagrees or feels uncomfortable. anyways hang in there I know it’s difficult being the only minority in the group…btw I also live in CA just outside LA… :D
