How Religeous Is A Person, Who Says They Are?

You meet a person who is going through a rough time, and offer to help them in some way. You take them where they needed to go, and on the way back you both stop and grab a bite to eat. Have nice general chit chat to get to try to know each other, because you hadn't met them before except in their blogs and over the phone. You make a quip about their blog in fun, and the two of you discuss it. Everything seems cool, because you talked about it, and they explained their point of view. This person talks about how they help do things at their church. That is totally great for them to do that. They start to cry, while at their apartment and knowing the ordeals, that they are going through, you try to comfort them by putting you hands gently of their shoulders. Not in a lusty fashion at all. The phone rings, and they shrug their shoulders away from your hands and says they don't want anyone trying to comfort them. They answer the phone and tells the party to whom they are talking to that they will talk with them later. They say, someone from the church was on the phone and they want to come over. They ask me to leave, and I said maybe I will see you again. They say I can call them. When I get home I get on the computer and find an e-mail stating I don't know what a friend is, or what comfort is. I didn't do anything to this person, that I knew of to hurt them. The person brought up the topic we dicussed. I had told them I was joking, but I guess the person took it personal. Here is a person, who says they are religeous, but wanted to let everybody in the world know how down right bad I was to them, when I really wasn't. The person really let me have it in a blog they wrote, and of course all the friends believed every word the person said. The person blocked my IMs to them, so I blocked them from IMing me. But I had no hard feelings towards the person, knowing the misery the person was going through. After a few days, I unblocked the person, so if the person gave it some thought, and wanted to contact me they were free to do so. I was willing to forgive the person for what the person did. Guess they don't know what forgiveness is, even if they mistook me for those few words, which were meant as a joke. What kind of religeon do they have?

What would you think, if you were me?

The question is perhaps to what extent this person actually believes in, and if they aren't just going through the motions of ideals projecting onto others but not themselves. The human codition can be quite complex but what is this persons relationship to what they believe. The best example is what you did Alice593 and extending the olive branch for they're reply accordingly.

Thank you Jim, I usually try that route, but sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't. I have more interesting things to write about than this, that might be more of interest. So stay tuned, for other things that have happened in my life, and things that I see happening.
