Ick. Sorry that happened, Charles. Awkward religion conversion attempts really suck.
I had to explain Fyrnsidu to a Muslim acquaintance of mine yesterday which was super awkward.
I was once approached by the “Campus Crusaders for Christ” (yes I am still trying to figure out how no one caught that during approval) and invited to a Bible study while I was wearing my Mjölnir. Apparently not many people understand what it means..
What, was he crying to try and get you to feel bad for being heathen? SOB YOU HURT MY CHRISTIAN FEELINGS, I AM SO OPPRESSED SOB JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH, WHY DON’T YOU LOVE HIM BACK, HE EVEN DIED FOR YOU AND THIS IS HOW YOU REPAY HIM
Well done, you! And I must say, I know exactly how you feel.
First off; thank you all for the support. It’s a strange situation, and I have the funniest feeling that I may be singled out by the ‘group’ of Christian music students because I wear a Heathen symbol openly. I don’t know for certain.
lokeanconcubine: <3 All of the feels.
musesanonymous: Honestly, I can’t say for certain. I won’t claim to be able to read people like books, but it started out as a very civil discourse on culture, music, oral tradition, etc. and chosen career paths. Then it went on a downhill spiral, and became progressively weird. :<
thorsgoddess: The word ‘crusader’ would have tipped me off something fierce. Did they think it was an anchor, perhaps a Tau?
sinnsreachdheathen: It ends up being that way many times, I’ve found.
ipreferdreamland: That they do, Jenna, that they do.
novashadows: Cute? Maybe, just a little. Insulting? Wholeheartedly.
