Just to clarify, CHS is in Centerburg, Ohio. Mt. Vernon is a good 30 minute drive from here.
Anyway, I know exactly what you are talking about, antigodsquad. I am a Christian myself, and am given a bad name due to these two girls. One particular day first period, somebody (who is also on this forum) confronted them with some decent questions. He didn't care even if they just said "I don't know, but I still have faith." To him, that would have been a perfectly acceptable answer. However, what they did was go on the defensive, claiming that they were being unjustly attacked.
In my opinion, they do give Christians a bad name at this school. Instead of merely inviting them to come to youth group, church, etc., they badger you day in and day out, until you say something back, which they interpret as an attack on their beliefs. This doesn't always happen during school, though. It also happens during sports activities.
The most important fact to consider is that more often than not, they consider themselves to be holier-then-thou induviduals, reassuring themselves of their overwhelming authority. I overheard a conversation between two of them once, and they did just that. "He's so stupid. Does he think he's insulting me by calling me a member of the 'God Squad'?"
I just hope that this does not deter people away from Christianity. They do not pose good examples of Christians.
And antigodsquad, what are your initials? I haven't been able to figure out who you are yet. There are a lot of CHS people on A2K nowadays...
