I am SO glad I decided to join this site when I did. that moment when I began to honestly question my Christian beliefs, and questioning if I really believed in all of that....that moment lead me to search even deeper about the Bible and Christianity (especially the things about it that i didn't agree with/understand). this site helped me learn more about it and helped "seal the deal" in my decision to no longer be a Christian. I feel more confident, happy in my own skin, no longe...

Q&A on a Pente forum: Q: "How does it feel like to be filled with HS?" A: "At first it may not feel special, but when you keep fasting, praying, devoting etc, at some point you'll feel like a ZOMBIE and that's because HS has taken over."

Four Reasons Religion is Awful: By Pearl_Posts ~ So I just wanted to get this off my chest. Everyone I know is... http://t.co/5QhWrn5g3Q
I would hate to be as uptight and impose as many unnecessary and meaningless self-restrictions as fundy/moderately conservative Christians do.
LadyNightingale? Something happen?

Lilith666Roommate... she's nice and good company, but she said in the last couple years she has quit watching/reading anything with spells because that's evil. Quit celebrating Halloween; that's evil too. It's weird having really Xian friends because they refuse to have fun. I just wanna hang out with someone who doesn't do that. I need more friends :(

Lilith666And she's almost 40. You would think it would be awful to do that to yourself after such a long time of not doing it.
Well, while Roommate is confined to Dickens and Jane Austen, I'm celebrating my freedom watching American Horror Story. :)

Anyone here get migraines? I've had one now, going on this is the third day. Mine don't normally last this long, and I don't get them a lot anymore, but IDK what to do. Sleep is all that helps but don't want to sleep the day away :/
FuegoOn occasion I get a painless migraine, meaning I see a bright electrical looking thing in the center of my vision that makes it impossible to read or see outside of peripheral vision. I didn't know they were called that, I just figured it was a blood pressure thing since it usually happens after exertion. Typically passes in about 20 minutes or so. Sucked when I was a programmer and couldn't read the screen.

Deidre32Ellinas, the drive from your brother's house? interesting! i wonder why that is. i wonder if your eyes are straining in some way during the drive, to read signs, or stay focused on the road.
fuego, yes those are called auras. I get those sometimes, ugh HATE those, that is when I know it will be a long day. lol (if pain accompanies it) my eyes STILL hurt today. I haven't slept well the past three days, lack of sleep is a major trigger. :(

SilentLonerTake pain meds, usually. Or do a skull massage.

http://www.cleveland19.com/story/30221418/some-say-halloween-display-crosses-a-line Some mom thinks her kid needs to be shielded from anything that upsets her. Only reason I'm not posting in R&R is - GASP! - the city refused to make the people take down their decorations for someone else's comfort and convenience. Hallelujah!
mymistakeStrange how some churches have a corps Jesus that is just as graphic. Nobody seems to complain about that.

Lilith666Ha. I was surprised that I didn't see complaints specifically about the upside-down cross. You have a good point - I mentioned on FB that what is considered "too scary" is arbitrary. Some kids will be scared by laughing plastic skeletons, so should we ban those? And others will find bleeding crucifixes terrifying.

I attempted to swim and there was a dead rat in the pool. After only a few minutes being outside I now have mosquito bites all over me including my ass. I hate nature.
Lilith666Ewww... I'm sorry :(

ThurisazThe "male privilege" part of the article may be a bit overblown (from my German perspective); aside from that though, good article. I've suspected for quite some time that the major driving force behind this shit (and some other kinds too) is a sick concept of "be a Real Man(TM)", including the willingness to win at ANY cost, even with lethal force. Not exactly the thing the article proposes but close I think.
Thanks for sharing.

Ain't no one telling me stimulants are no anti depressants...and also pushing my sex drive...
OpenHeartHa! I am on a medication for hair loss with similar side effects. Feel better, look better, elevated libido... Please sir, may I have some more? :)

moanareinaFor hair loss? Lol, never heard of. Cool it works that way!
And yes it's really a great side effect...

ThurisazMaybe more a person in URGENT need of good therapy. But disgusting nonetheless of course.

The assault weapons ARE the rpoblem - the division is between those who give a shit and those who don't.
mymistakeOf course some can handle it. But the gun lobby works very hard to ensure those who can't handle the responsibility get the right anyway. You sell more guns if everybody can have one.
Oct 08 2015 09:16 PM
TheOutsiderAnd how, exactly, do we determine who can and cannot handle owning a firearm? Without trying to kill someone?
I'd say not just some can, most can. Some relatively few cannot, and some of them just want to kill people for whatever reason.
