BBQ After Hours

The BBQ with T, T Hubby, Music Man, and others was a lot of fun. Good food, good chats, good drinks. I didn't drink. I brought myself a large bottle of Grapefruit Perrier to drink in place of alcohol. I did have one shot of Tequila though. I figured that was acceptable, but I didn't want to drink all the empty calories of alcohol and I'm glad I didn't. I used my calories on the food instead. Back to normal eating on Sunday!

The only awkward part was at the very end of the night. Music Man asked me what I was doing tomorrow (Sunday). I replied with "Besides church in the morning I'm not sure what my plans are."

The rest of the table overheard and T Hubby decided to speak up and ask me "You go to church?" I answered "Yes." in a confident manner. Then the whole table started talking about religion and how all of them are atheists and then began bashing the bible. I defended it, but it didn't stop them from all speaking their minds. T Hubby then said "Well I don't judge whether someone is a believer or not, but isn't it hypocritical to believe in God and be a lesbian?" I responded with "No, I've read the bible front to back and I disagree with how society has interpreted the anti-LGBT scriptures. If you actually read the whole thing then you will see that it's not as it seems."

After some more God bashing conversation T spoke up and told T Hubby straight "What do you mean you don't judge religious people? Yeah you do! I also know that once you find out someone is religious then it's someone you don't want to get to know." He puts his head down and mumbles "Well... I guess that's true."

With that I stood up and said goodbye to everyone and left. I thanked them for the BBQ and the fun time, grabbed my stuff, and walked out the door.

Don't get me wrong. People can believe whatever they want. I'm fine they are all atheists. They are still nice people. What really upset me was what T said about T Hubby not wanting to get to know someone just because of their religious beliefs and him agreeing. So much for getting to know him better and becoming friends! This makes me not even want to set foot in their house again to be honest. Not if they are going to judge me and not want to get to know me for me!

All this just from the simple question "What are you doing tomorrow?" and everyone else eavesdropping at the table!

Edit: After some much needed sleep, prayer, and self-reflection, I think I took what was said last night too personally. It doesn't matter whether they judge me or not. I won't let it affect me and if one day they choose not to hang out with me because of it then it's their loss. My faith is steadfast and strong! God knows my heart. In the end, that's what matters most.
