People Who Don't Believe in God

Today Callie whispers to me, "My friend X says she doesn't think [our mutual friend] believes in God."


And do you know what Catholic me said?


"So what?"


Then I asked her what she thought of this person. She said she is a very nice person. She's a good mom.


I asked her if she remembered some of the times that Christians have been mean. Of course she remembers.


Then I got to drive home the point that we are all sinners, we are all just trying to be better people and get along and we often stumble but that just because someone does not believe in God we don't stay away from them.


Their un-Godness won't rub off on us, and we don't try to convert them to our point of view. I happen to really like this person, and her husband, who I believe is agnostic or maybe even atheist. I'm not sure, and I don't care. We sit around and trade homeschooling info and I consider these people to be our friends.


I want my kids to be able to hang out with all sorts of people.
