  1. "Give me a big mac and fries....but I dont want to defile my body with that covid vaccine." (haha) I think there was a "mark of the beast" type objection as well...except they dont stab you in the forehead or the hand with a syringe....just the arm. Hope you got your shots...I got mine.
  2. https://www.nebraskamed.com/COVID/you-asked-we-answered-do-the-covid-19-vaccines-contain-aborted-fetal-cells "As a practicing Catholic, I think the moral balance of indirectly benefitting from an abortion that occurred 50 years ago in order to take a vaccine that will prevent further death in the community is a no-brainer – especially considering that so many of the over 620,000 American deaths have occurred in the most vulnerable and marginalized in our society. We need to focus on saving lives right now. We need to care for our neighbors. The Vatican and bishops agree. The Vatican has issued clear guidance that permits Roman Catholics in good faith to receive COVID-19 vaccines that use fetal cell lines in development or production. Read the Vatican's comments on the morality of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. " The Catholics would rather not lose members of the flock. I guess the fundys dont mind thinning their own herd.

  4. Religious exemption reasoning: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/11/us/covid-vaccine-religion-exemption.html " Some vaccines were developed using fetal cell lines from aborted fetuses, she wrote, citing a remote connection to a practice she finds abhorrent. She quoted a passage from the New Testament: “Let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit.”
  5. Welcome to ex-C.net. Glad to have you here.
  6. I have to do major scrolling to find anything about it on news websites. Oh well, I'm inland western US.
  7. I'm not sure why Christians find it unacceptable to sincerely call God out on stuff that makes no sense if he were in control and cared about us. Just sincerely ask him why? And when there is no answer they have to make up something about why there is no answer.
  8. Challenging your own fear-based indoctrination is difficult. And I think that could be where he's at. His mind understands that bible god aint that great, but his emotional side wont allow him to have the thought 'god is fiction'. He was in a rush to get his account cancelled, like maybe God wont know he's been here? Sure he can crawl back and 'pretend' to love Jesus... Jesus, his emotional jailer. I hope he asks Jesus some hard questions, though. I think everyone here was helpful. Whether he likes it or not, he has some food for thought. And if logic can eat through the beliefs of the 'Almighty' and produce nonbelievers, what's that say about the weakness of Jesus and faith?
  9. What exactly were you hoping ex-believers would say? Your parameters: "There is a creator. You will never convince me otherwise." "These are parameters I'll converse in, please keep it there. I'm not here to argue or sway."
  10. I'm agnostic. There may be a God. I just dont think he/it necessarily aligns with the loving personality of the God as described in the bible or Christianity in general. Yes, we still have murder, rape, child sex trafficking, seemingly under the watch of what Christians say is a loving God. How does that work? It reminds me of Epicurus: “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” ― Epicurus If his claim to good fatherhood is null, is he worthy of praise? If he allows innocents to suffer or die, is he worthy of praise? If he 'loves' us but never communicates, is he worthy of praise? Why or or why not? If God lets his creations burn in hell , is he worthy of praise? If he lets good people who dont believe in him burn in hell, is he worthy of praise?
  11. Ex-Christianity: Where you can roll your own beliefs about God and heaven...and not have to feel bad about yourself.
  12. Definitely sounds like a Catholic. Yep yep. /s
  13. Maybe from Southern Puget Sound
  14. Paganism is a good way, if you like/want/need a god or a goddess. Or even deity-free paganism is good. I've found paganism to be free from guilt, shame and fear that is usually associated with Christianity.
