mynameispaulie in atheism



A teenage girl about 17 had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year.

She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger.

When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it.

However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her.

She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection.

Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her.

When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there.

Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep.

Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station.

She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story.

The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him.

She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before.

When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her.

She asked if they would ask the man one question.

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.

When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone.
She had two tall men walking on either side of her."

Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98% of teenagers will not stand up for God?

Repost this as Love vs. Sex if you truly believe in God..,

PS: God is always there in your heart and loves you no matter what.....and if u stand up 4 him u would repost this

90% wont repost

*headdesk*

I just hope no one decides to test this IRL.
LOL that's great
"LOVE GOD OR BE RAPED!"

The funniest thing is it DID get reposted...in an atheist forum.

Repost this as Love vs. Sex if you truly believe in God..,

hmmm, on a technicality it could be that by not posting it as Love vs. Sex mynameispaulie is simply demonstrating their atheism?

otherwise;

wins!
*snorts* god loves everyone equally! just not the girl 20 minutes behind you
moochin' yer icon.
I'm actually all for this. Here's my reasoning... The more people we have walking around thinking they're invincible because of their faith the more quickly natural selection can do it's job. :)
LOL
The lesson here? God won't help out unless you remember to ask. And only if you do it at least twice. He's a stubborn guy.
I think it's an interesting piece of fiction, though it's hardly Twilight Zone caliber.

I wouldn't dream of passing it along for fear that someone might take it too seriously and thus compromise their personal security when walking at night. Rather than hoping that more teenagers will stand up for God, I wish that more teenagers would stand up for themselves and insist that either their parents, their friends' parents, or a friend with a car give them a ride rather than risking their lives needlessly.

She should be praying for the common sense to not walk into a situation that she knows doesn't feel safe, or at the very least for the personal responsibility to carry a weapon and know how to use it.

Sorry to launch off on a tangent, but here's a true story: In my first semester of college a good friend of mine briefly dated a girl who lived in my dorm. She'd go over to his dorm pretty regularly, and it wasn't uncommon for her to stay after dark. Despite the ubiquitous (and justified) "don't walk the campus alone at night!" warnings that were targeted primarily at female students he always balked at walking her home, since it was all the way across campus and he'd have to then turn around and walk the whole way back.

This girl was just a casual friend to me who happened to live in my building and be dating a friend of mine, but I offered to escort her anytime she needed to walk somewhere at night. No ulterior motive- it just seemed like the right thing to do. She took me up on it on several occasions.

The two of them ended up breaking up after less than a year. She and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this year. :-)

Sorry for the rant.
Aw, that's so sweet! Congrats on achieving the 10th anniversary (we just celebrated our ninth, so I know what it's like). :)
Hehehehe, I just posted this on myspace as a bulletin but with a few changes:

A teenage girl about 17 had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year.

She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.

She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection.

Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her.

But as she walked past the man he jumped out and tackled her, then proceeded to rape her and beat her to death.

When she got to heaven, she went before GOD and said: "But, Heavenly Father, I prayed and felt your protection, why was I raped and killed anyway?"

To which GOD replied: "Honey, YOU'RE the dumb bitch who walked down a dark alley. I gave you all free will for a reason, if you're unwilling to practice it AND common sense, then you have to accept the consequences."





If you also believe in free will and common sense, repost this ... or don't cause, yaknow ... free will.
hahah that's great!
I'm a little confused about the Love vs. Sex part. What does that have to do with the story? Diane loved God, so she wasnt forced to have sex??
Jesus is magic.

For every person that Jehovah saves, he rapes and kills another million.

Snopes went over this one pretty thoroughly. Like they point out, the part that is the most offensive is how God saved the girl who prayed to him and sacrificed the girl who didn't to be raped and beaten. So much for loving all of his children...
As I read this, I imagined it ending differently, since this is an atheist community...

Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station.

She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story.


The police seemed shocked to see her and hear her story, but asked her if she could identify the man in a line up, to which she immediately agreed.

When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her.

She asked if they would ask the man one question.

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.


The policeman looked very uncomfortable for a moment, but then finally said, "He did, don't you remember? You were in such a bad state after being released from the hospital, we didn't think you'd be able to identify him, so we were going to investigate the rape without you."

At that moment, her parents burst into the police station for aid finding their missing daughter, just in time to see Diane's recently divided personalities collide.

As the stretcher took Diane away for intensive therapy sessions, her parents told the stunned desk chief that she had always been a little touched in the head...


I think my ending makes more sense. Just the writer in me.

My intention was never to make light of rape or mental illness, which the original contend did anyways.
That seems like a more realistic, albeit sad ending.
What??? What kind of school was this??

Glurge


It's just glurge. These things pop up all the time.

...

I should repost it with Thor instead of god. Because, face it, Thor is a hell of a lot more intimidating than some invisible sky-daddy.
