disrespect in all its forms. *warning personal beliefs spoken*

You know it’s going bad when you & your group starting fighting in the car. We have to do something “helpful” for the community for our presentation this Friday. So we are helping out an unfortunant family and bought them some things. On the way there, the one guy who is assuming the “leader” position, says “we need more sources for the project.” I told him we could use the name of the church as a source since they gave us the name of the family we are helping. he then says:
“I have a better idea! Let’s use the bible instead! We can quote verses in our presentation!”
I then say politly that I don’t really want to do that. He asks why and I tell him I don’t think it’s appropiate and that it may offend someone in class. He gets pissed and starts fighting with me and then says “Well, what if we throw in some Chinese proverbs too? Will that help?!”
What an asshole, damn. Then he’s like, “We can use certain verses from the Bible to help. We have to explain why we think what we did was good, not just go up there and say its good and have nothing to back it up. We have to show why its good. We have to have motivation.”
I tell him (and all of them since we are all in the damn car) that the Bible isn’t what is motivating me to do this charitable act. And that we each have our own personal motivations. He then accueses me of having only the motivation of getting a good grade on the assignment to do this for the family.
>_< >_< >_< >_< >_< ugh, WTF?! They were all just following his lead and asking why I didn't want to read Bible verses during the presentation. I told them if I wanted to study the Bible and do presentations on it I would have gone to a Christian college.
I got so pissed because I told them they could read verses if they wanted too, but I didn’t want it to be a “group motivation” and that I wasn’t reading any because I’m uncomfortable doing so seeing how I do not believe in the same things they do. I just don’t understand, I was being so understanding about them and they just attacked me for not being a Christian and pretty much saying that anyone without faith can’t be motivated to do good for others. It got worse, he followed me to my car and started apologizing and then tried to “save” me and twisted all my words around. All I was saying is I didn’t want to do that in the presentation, I didn’t express my values or beliefs because I’m not trying to convence them of anything, I just didn’t like the idea of reading the bible during our presentation. It just upset me and now they are treating me like I have a third eye and won’t listen to ANYTHING I say now.
ugh, anyway. We will see what happens. I have a mid-term in the class tomorrow =_=;;, I was so tired from work today. We had to take Mike’s car into the dealers because his engine light came on. But the light itself was just broken so no problems after allIt’s been long day. OH, I DIDN’T have 10$ in the bank! Books-a-million charged me twice for the manga!!! I thought I was supposed to have like 40$ left over!! Sure enough they fixed it today and it’s back up where I thought it should be! I’ll just respond to some comments now, I like wasting time :P. hehehehe
Lydia, I love the Hot Gimmick blog idea, hahaha, I know alot of ppl are sharing in my addiction! I would of course, be Ryo XD.
meemee, I don’t really prefer online courses, sometimes the professiors make them too hard cuz they think it’s too easy.
Kim, you’re too funny XD. OOO manga huh? Well, obvioulsy Hot Gimmick is good, be beware, naughty adult scenarious happen and some foul language. I own Kare Kano, FLCL, Chobits, and Love Hina manga. Kare Kano is awesome, the anime is awesome too. The manga & anime are almost identical cept the manga goes on while the anime stops 2/3 rds way into the story. KK, I’ll bug you online whenever I can at work XD~.
Winniey, my post probably WAS trying to steal it, no wonder she was in a sour mood, we caught her XD
you ight have noticed more pics in my posts. Why? b/c when I moved the blog I set it to upload images through the posting page so I don’t have to open ftp or anything. I used it at my Knit Blog for a while now and its sooooo very convienant XD.
