Is it normal I'm irreligious and still get bothered when people insult religion?
Ok, I've asked this multiple times with a lot of miscommunication. This is a long subject, but I'll try to summarize it as much as I can. I wouldn't exactly call myself an atheist, I have strong beliefs in the occult, but I understand a lot of criticism religion gets, and I can get on board most of the time. I don't believe the Bible or any other religious text is literally true, but at least are powerful enough to inspire strong emotions. But, there's some moments when the anti religion is so nonsensical and confusing, that it scares me. There's a lot, so I'll just say the ones that stand out the most to me.
1. I once made a joke in a tardigrade video saying "these things are God's pets!" I ended up getting so many downvotes my comment had to be hidden, and one person teasing me about having an imaginary friend, and someone saying he can't see them and they're an atheist
2. I once posted a meme to Facebook with fictional characters saying they don't understand the meaning of yolo (they all died and came back to life), and another with actors saying who they played and Jesus talking about being the alpha and omega (I admit this one was kinda preachy, I was a Christian back then). And in the yolo one I explained that Jesus knew everything but you would get the joke. Then some guy went to the trouble to comment on both pictures contradicting everything I said about Jesus, saying he wasn't the son of god and didn't know everything, and was just really being an a-hole. What's especially scary is I asked about this once and all I got was people mocking me.
3. I once asked on yahoo answers why blasphemy of the Holy Spirit was unforgiviable. I only remember about one of the many answers actually answering the question, while like 99% of the others were making fun of the Bible.
4. This one doesn't involve me, but I find it the most baffling. There's a video where a blind man gets his sight back after many years. You would think the comments would be filled with people happy for him, or excited about new technology, but instead virtually every fucking comment is saying how he should thank doctors and not Jesus. Religion isn't mentioned even once this video! I don't understand how THAT if all things became the focus of everyone's attention (if you don't believe me here it is:https://youtu.be/3BtKgD6CeA8)
Update: after looking through, those comments have gone down and there is one telling them to knock it off. However, when I first saw this video the overwhelming majority of comments were people insulting religion.
This is confusing for many reasons. I don't know how or why or even when this started bothering me, and I don't understand these people's rationalization for acting like this in these places, or why so many of them acted this way. Perhaps I just got what was at the other end of the polarity spectrum at the time, I don't know, but this has been confusing me for so long I feel the need to put it out there, even if I never get an answer.
