Anyone ever have nightmares about being persecuted?

I know it's kinda odd, but I had one last night and just wanted to see if anyone else ever has them. It was really strange, I flick off two proselytizers at the grocery store, only to have an awkward moment when I run into them at a party, and after I make some comment about me being an atheist, next thing I know they are hunting me down and shoving me in a dark room where they kill me.Laughing One of them even had the gaul to say that Christians were oppressed! Needless to say, I woke up thoroughly pissed off. Anyone else have dreams dealing with you atheism/being hunted for it. And since when has the existence of another point of view meant that you're oppressed?!?!

Well, I wouldnt say a

Well, I wouldnt say a nightmare as much as a post apocalyptic war scenario. That I plan to turn into A film short of maybe 20 minutes or so. it basically goes something like this.

-year 2047-

the American Inquisition has been happening fo about 10 years now. Christian Crusaders alongside  a theist Government Tyranny known to have been in place since the turn of the Century are hunting down Scientists and rational thinkers alike  and killing us all in the name of there imaginary friend. all other countries remain Neutral while government grounds al flight. some have Managed to flee to Canada but most killed in the process.

A group of us inparticular are to have higher rewards on our head and are to be tortured and made slaves of, as we hold the last written Old Testament as Hostage threatening its Destruction if the Crusades fail too cease.

 

-Entire MAD MAX ACTION sequences shuld be refered too

Crap, if that started

Crap, if that started happening I'd just blend back into the theist crowd.

Ok. So if you were in a dream and you got killed and then you woke up, then that means......to your dream world, this is your heaven.

Which means, in the dream world there really is an afterlife. And that afterlife is this world. Which means, this world is the real heaven and the dream world is the real world.

It's all starting to make sense now. We are all in heaven. Right now!! Thank you Jesus!! Praise be to Jesus!

I've had nightmares

I've had nightmares stemming from the Patriot Act in which the core RRS team was put in Guantanamo with no rights to a lawyer and no charges.

Scarier though is a nightmare I've had a few times involving my head being chopped off while I hear "Allah Akbar" in the background, and see it played on Al Jazeera.

 

P.S.  Allah doesn't exist... never did.

I had a dream where I was

I had a dream where I was beaten and crucified by my wife's family on bamboo reeds that kept bending down to the ground because of my weight, the weirdest part was Mell Gibson was there giving direction and so was Mel Brooks who was trying to stop them by telling them I was Chinese.

Why?  To make a poetic end of my life to deluded theists on a bloodthirsty witchhunt?

I guess the evolutionary desire for self preservation is a little too strong in me for such a pointless gesture.
