Religion as defense
By:
Post # 1
In high school I had a girl that wasn't a big fan of me or my pagan religious beliefs. Most times I just ignored her hateful comments and didn't spend much time around her (our school only had about 100 students per grade so it wasn't always possible) so I wouldn't have to hear them. I was also openly bisexual which she hated. She was (and probably still is) a very devout Christian woman. Unlike the other 2 Wiccan students in the school I never participated in any conversation that bashed any other religion.

After joining the Gay-Strait Alliance of the school I was often staying at school as late as 6:30 pm. The teacher running it didn't start the meetings until 3:30 pm (school ended at 2:15) so the GLBT students in the GSA weren't harassed and wouldn't be heard discussing their sexuality with other students. It was on these late nights that I started having problems with this girl. Some of the meetings would end by 4:30 and she didn't leave until 5 most nights. On several of these occasions she threw a bible at me (hitting me with it most of the time) while I was in the student parking lot while demanding that I find the one true God and worship him. One night one of the vice principles (the school was special and had 2) saw her do it and grabbed us both before we went home.

She made us wait in her empty office while she went to check the security cameras had caught it (they had). She wanted to both suspend the girl and call the police to have her charged with something on my count after it had been said that this happened on more than one occasion. I managed to get her out of any legal responsibility with the police (she hadn't really done any harm by hitting me with said bible) but still earned the suspension when she refused to stop throwing the bibles at me. Her defense for it being okay was her religion stated that it was her responsibility to save my soul.

Should a religious text ever be considered a defense for doing an illegal action against another person?

It's not her responsibility. If she was a true Christian she wouldn't throw a bible at you. That disrespectful to the bible. It isn't a Christians resposibilty to save you. It's to help prepare you. She was just trying to be mean.

This child was by no means a true Christian and I apologize that someone from the same religion as I has committed such an indulgent and idiotic act.

OMG's. That is totally disgusting!! No one should ever be doing that to you and be allowed to get away with bullying you without the school repremanding her.

Maybe you should do a ritual that protects you from bullies and ignorance.

**It sure brings a new meaning to the term- 'Bible bashing'.

I'm not making light of your situation, but you should try some protection stuff, as it does seem like you need it being amoung such nasty ignorant people.

Isn't throwing a bible around a little disrespectful of her own religion, I mean, after she throws it its gonna hit the ground and get dirty and I'm fairly certain that holy objects aren't supposed to be used as weapons LOL.
I feel so bad for you, no one should have had to go through that. You have my best wishes and I think you are so brave for having put up with that.
Blessed be,
AliRose

Well Actually if you examine the crusades, although what you described is a weaker form just examine the facts. It was to force Muslims aka Heretics whom lived how they wanted to aka in "sin" and the Catholic church in this case a devote christian to Convert you.
Also they did enchant swords and other weapons thus making them holy, thus they did use holy objects to fight.

see, its people like this who get me angry. Its crazy church-nazis like this chick who give the rest of us good, honest tolerant catholics and christians a bad name. I mean, for christ sake, Cathloicism preaches unity and tolerance, about building bridges not walls.
Stupid church-nazis lol

How disrespectful of the Bible! If that girl had thrown a copy of the Koran she would really be in trouble!
