Open letter to a "friend" I'm no longer on speaking terms with.

Right off the bat, let me say that you can just spare me the whole sob story about how you're "sorry" that you've been nothing but cold and abusive toward me for years now, because we've already been through this routine a dozen times over. You let out a half-hearted generic apology, then two hours later you go right back to knifing me in the back and inviting me to your pathetic little Facebook circle-jerk so you can have a "debate" with me where you insult me to my face, post mindless hate speech all over my wall, start calling me names and hurling abuse when I ignore you, then go brag to your pathetic little yes-men about how you've won another "victory for your cause" because I refuse to indulge you any further.  Not to mention you're full of shit on both counts anyway; you didn't "win an argument" as you've failed to change a single person's mind about anything, and you didn't "lose" my friendship because you never had had such a thing to begin with.  You don't have "friends"; you have bowling pins which you just set up and knock down over and over again so you can feel like a big man.  You don't give a shit about people or their feelings, you just care about having your claws in them so you can get off by stirring up drama and lying to their face to manipulate their feelings.  Literally the only thing "friendship" means to you is "someone I can kick around and then apologize to so I can do it again tomorrow."

You can spare me any glib excuses about how you don't do this shit either, because I've witnessed it firsthand - you act polite to someone's face, then turn right around and talk snarky bullshit about them as soon as they're no longer within earshot.  Hell, you don't even bother doing it behind their back most of the time; you just turn right around and call people shitheads while they're in the same room,  myself included.  Or you start shit with somebody and then the next day act like nothing ever happened, then act shocked and appalled when they don't instantly forget it too just so you can flee back to your little hugbox and have all your yes-men reassure you that you're always right and anyone who says otherwise is evil and wrong.  You really are an amazing piece of work - to you, everyone is just the punchline of some joke you make so you can prove to yourself just how "good" and "righteous" you really are.  Fuck you.

Oh yeah, and nobody cares about your stupid militant atheist bullshit either, least of all me (a non-theist myself). You're not being "kept down" for not believing in a god; you're being kept down by your own smarmy, self-assured attitude and the fact that you clearly have no interest in anything other than yourself.  In fact, I'm willing to bet that it's not even about "being deceived" or "brainwashing" or whatever you're trying to paint it as; it's about you simply not being able to stand the idea of people holding something in higher regard than you and what you believe.  You narcissistic fuck.

Even more amazingly, you do all of this while claiming you're "making the world a better place" and taking the "moral high ground" for not sinking to some arbitrary low of your own definition.  Well, guess what?  You're not.  You are the very same bitter, hateful, group-thinking individual you imagine your "enemies" to be. It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.  Not to mention this shit is just another convenient excuse for you to pit people against one another while you sit on the sidelines, watch the shit fly and jerk yourself off for having had a hand in it.  To say nothing of the fact that you probably don't actually give a shit about religion anyway; it just gives you a convenient scapegoat to blame all of your failings on and so you have a petty excuse to talk down to people.  Especially with the power of the Internet, where you can just hide behind your yes-men on your shitty little Facebook page or post cowardly anonymous rants on other peoples' websites so you never have to be talked back to for any stupid shit you say.

Speaking of "high ground", I also find it pretty humorous/disgusting how you regularly talk down to people about their beliefs, saying they're "deluded" or "in denial" or "being deceived".  Especially when you yourself put on a friendly face, then turn around and use those very same people as your personal punching bags.  The world is not going down the toilet because of "religion" or whatever cause you choose to scapegoat this week; it is because of two-faced, self-absorbed filth like you who just view others as a means to an end, whether that end is amassing status by throwing people under the bus, or labeling someone "inferior" and looking down on them so you never have to put any effort into being a decent human being yourself.  After all, if everyone else is so rotten and horrible and corrupt, then all you have to do to feel good about yourself is get out of bed in the morning, right?  Either that or just write a masturbatory self-righteous blog post on your private Facebook page so your sad little yes-men can inflate your bloated ego even more.  This shit is the epitome of pathetic; you have no moral ground to stand on when you criticize someone for having faith in a system you perceive to be deceptive and exploitative when you're deceiving and exploiting everyone around you for your own personal gain, because what you fail to realize (or simply don't care to acknowledge) is that both you and the people you broad-brush and demonize embrace the exact same rhetoric; the only difference is that they allegedly call it "the will of God" while you unambiguously call it "friendship". Again, the irony would be laughable if it weren't so sad.

So... no. Despite what you've deluded yourself into thinking (and harangued everyone around you into parroting on command), you are not a "force for good" in a "world full of corruption" and your actions aren't "justified" because you're some "oppressed minority" who "isn't getting respect he deserves"; you're a sociopathic, narcissistic bigot who forces his beliefs on others with blackmail and harassment, and I have no respect for you or anyone like you.  In fact, you're pretty goddamn disgusting.  The fact that you're now a used car salesman fits right in with that image too - someone who puts on a respectable face while pushing empty lies just to line their own pockets.  How fitting, even if that commission you make is far more than you deserve.  At least you're not starting a cult or becoming the next Peter Popoff, I guess.  Not yet anyway.

Your former bowling pin,

Oh, and don't bother replying to this message, because I have absolutely no interest in enabling you any further.  But know this: you can either choose to stay out of my life and those of my family and friends (as in people I actually respect, not what you define as "those things I use as my personal punching bags so I can get ahead in life") for the rest of your miserable existence, or, one way or another, I will personally see to it that you do.
