They are acting like total headless chickens now. Much manipulation to get into my life, to make me get the vaccine. Been over 6 months of it now. With all sorts of threats, if I do not get the vaccine. And my faith is being targeted since I have become open about that too, and they link it on that, which is not the reason. So they have attacked my religion nonstop, calling me a fool, blaspheming, etc, which has worn me down in the past. And tried to make me go to my old friends and reconnect and get the same advice, and an ex, which I have not done till lately I did agree to, because it was tiresome.

Endless questions about if I had an apartment elsewhere still, when we all knew I had that, from where my mail was forwarded, and all saw the mail. Rent an apartment from a friend of some relatives for petes sake. Did not have the strength to go down there and move out, open secret. And fine, even though it was a waste of money of course for 2 years after being there, but accepted. Everybody who asked me, had seen the mail and knew, so I just asked them back, what do you think? Or do I? Always coming to me to blaspheme, and talking about the mark of the beast and other popularized reasons for not getting it. Then telling me I had to get the vaccine. I just tell them I will not take it, and no follow up question, just anger and walking away.

I called my ex for the first time in 2 years after moving away from theese folks who attacked my religion badly. Giving me anger every other day. And she also went on about the vaccine, after speaking some, and clearing up why I stopped taking her calls and stopped calling her. hearing how we had it in life, etc. Talked a few more times. Told her I was christian, but otherwise I was pretty much the same person. Then other family cam for the summer, and I did not call for 2 months perhaps. And on and on with blasphemy, and manipulation to get me to get the vaccine. Then I had to stop participating in familyevents, where it was all about mocking christianity, and talking about the vaccine, and how people who did not take it, was harmful to society.Then my ex drunktexted me that I had to stop by her place if I went to that city soon, as I said I might do. But had not done, and told her I might do after the family goes home for the summer. Delta came about, and it got worse. after stopped visiting them. They came to my house. Not taking it I say. No question about why, it must be religion.

Then called my ex after the drunktext, and she wanted me to come and meet her. NOW. I said I could not do it yet, and had to a chainsaw to the familytree, and it would have to wait some weeks, and more vaccinestuff. Then I got a call from the houseowner, the friend of my relatives, he had to sell the house, so I had to move, mkay. So I am moving now, and did meet my ex, who again was mad at me, for dragging it out because of the move and other stuff. And more about the vaccine. So I went to her, and we talked and had some nice chats, and hard chats. And again about the vaccine. Told her I might get it or not, not considered it, no time now. And could not take it where I was, because you had to take it in the municipality you reside in officially. First opportunity now, and now I am too busy. Talked for 8 hours. Then I go home, and today I call my parents, and on and on about the vaccine. What is going on to make everybody so crazy about the vaccine? Same with my aunt here, just had to drop visiting her today, because it was all about vaccine.Is it possible to make people let people decide for themselves? Or at least ask why you have not gotten it? Pray for the people to ask why. Not been in the place I can get it before now, now I do not have time because of the move. Why are people freaking so out about it? Is there a spreadwave coming or something? Pray that people will accept different views. Pray that people will understand when over 60% is vaccinated, the rest are safe because of herdimmunity. Pray that they can stop attacking what means something to me, to make me do a "sensible" thing, that is not easy for me, because of much social anxiety too. Big ask, many asks I know.

Hi Mindful,
I'm sorry to hear about your dilemma... I see ur also new at CC and want to welcome you!

You got the Bible? I was most blessed to have been given my own as a student, which thru the years, in spite of the winds and the waves in my life, got me going. It is precious time to be alone with the Lord, to graze in His pastures quietly like the sheep He loves.

Lord, i lift Mindful up to You, You who know every heart, every joy and tear in our lives. Thank You that He seeks You.. and faithful that You are, will reveal Yourself the living God who knows exactly who and what we need, pulls us out of the mire, and leads our hand as we strive to walk straight paths with You. Give him the faith he needs even as small as a mustard seed, but wc will grow as Your Spirit continues to work in his life mightily. Thank You for Your great love for every humble soul that calls on Your name, but who finds You as we seek with all our heart. In Jesus' precious name.

Thank you. Tired of the stuff, why must we do it? Almost doing it but feels wrong, because nobody advice it, a.lot tell me, all demand it. Can you tell me why people act crazy?

This is why I kept it personal, noe it is a big thing, not personal, and the bible a problem in me getting the vaccine. Which I could not get till I took a 3 hour drive. That all talk about now. So not taking after they act as they do. They are a worse virus. Why not just ask
I have the bible, is when it all started. Covid seems as an excuse. I forgot the bible outside. None of my family like that. Proud atheists. Religion wquals weakness in my family. Which is why I kept it personal.o

thank you all. Just the classic thing, one of the most eager ones leaving the familyfaith, big problem. Staunch atheist all my life, dawkins and hitchens were our apostles. Since stopping, and telling them that perhaps they could stop mocking others faith, it just got worse and worse. And more and more personal, before I even told anybody I was religious by forgetting my bible outside.

I believe there are forces at work trying to use this as a way to divide and conquer.

Are you white? You are inherently racist.

Are you a political conservative or a Christian? You are a domestic terrorist.

Do you refuse the vaccine? Or masks? You're killing people!!!

Classic, Stalinist tactic: Divide and conquer.

Folks, we MUST pray against this fascistic attempt to break America -- and maybe the rest of the West.

Mindfulzen, I will pray this...

Lord, I ask in Jesus' name for his protection from mental attacks by the enemy of our souls. I pray for the people around him to be saved. I pray for his strength and peace to maintain his resolve, like a tree planted in a rushing river that is not dislodged. Let his light and witness be unwavering and strong. Surround him with people who will encourage him. Thank you. May Your will be done in this.

That's fine. However, I think this person misunderstood my sarcasm. Hence the rolling eyes. And of course, there was my prayer for this person.

Oh well!

Got a mechanical Godzilla to beat up, might need some monkey help to do it... See ya later...
