So on Saturday I decided to take a trip down to Chapters to buy a new book (I'm almost finished Bill Nye's Undeniable) and I heard Kyle from Secular Talk recommend "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins so I decided to get it.
I hope all of you know I am a very respectful person in my day-to-day life. I went to a Catholic high-school. I believe in the constitution and freedom. So I have ZERO problem with religious people, (except radicals)
So why was it when I went to the checkout, the lady who scanned my book looked personally OFFENDED by my choice in literature? She even made one of those 'scoffs" like "humph" when she rang it up.
This post is not meant to be whiny, in fact I wasn't even offended myself, when I left I was more wondering why someone can be SO insecure with their faith that my choice in what I want to read offends them. If /I/ was a cashier and someone bought a bible, I wouldn't mock them, I wouldn't look offended by their choice in their purchase. My JOB is to ring their purchase up, collect payment, and wish them a good-day. Not cast judgement on their reading or lifestyle.
