    The Maker
  1. It should be noted that at the time of my father's death my mother was set to begin chemotherapy for breast cancer. When she met the con artist, she was in full-on "chemo brain", so of course that contributed to her decision to see him. Later on, it was pointed out to her that she wasn't in her right mind, but she ignored it. In short, she had every logical, reasonable reason to divorce him, even under "god's law", but she stayed anyway. This lack of basic reasoning in favor of religion and schizophrenic-style talking from God made us both realize what kind of damage religion can do. It forces you to ignore your own intellect, ignore your own emotions so they seep out in what feels like divine revalation, and generally makes you feel like shit otherwise. I was never taught to make my own decisions, but instead to wait for god to tell me what to do.
  2. Lazy Sunday. Cat in my lap, coffee in hand, kids playing in the snow. It's the little things.

  3. So much has changed, and it's only been a week since we were able to say it out loud "I'm not a Christian. It was all a lie." We both feel as if a huge weight has been lifted, the pressure to be a perfect Christian, perfect spouse and parent, the constant fear of displeasing god, all dissipated. Sometimes they still creep up, but having a valid reason, scientific and historic proof behind disbelief helps us to beat it back. To be honest, and I don't want to offend or upset any of those whose spouse isn't in agreement, our marriage has done better without god than it ever did with god.
  4. It doesn't help that we are both beating ourselves up for decisions we've made in the name of Christ. I know we need to forgive ourselves, but it is very, very difficult.
  5. Oh cool, we have another ex-C couple. There are several others. That's great. I wish my S.O. would deconvert. I'm jealous. Believe me, I am unbelievably thankful that we are going this together. I know religion can tear a couple apart very easily.
  6. Yes, it was my mother (his Mother in law).
  7. Sexiest ex-Christian ever! I should know... I married him.
  8. Looking forward to some King Crab for dinner! Mmmmmmm

      It was YUMMY! (I'm RBM's hubby)

  9. I'm listening to Angel of Salvation now, and I like it a lot. I can see what you mean about the similarity to Malmsteem. I'll need to look into them more. The same album has an instrumental version of that song that blows my mind, nearly makes me cry. (I think it's called Longing). I've never hear any guitarist able to put so much emotion, passion and pain into music like that. It really goes so far beyond language that it doesn't matter if you can speak japanese.
  10. HAPPY FRIDAY! Drinking a guilt free bourbon and ginger ale for the first time ever!

  11. I know what you mean that it still hurts to see stuff like that. That part will get better for you. Good idea to block it out for the time being, until you have healed enough to deal with and laugh off such nonsense. Thanks RW!
  12. That's absolutely how it was for me! My mom made a horrible, life and family altering decision based on "a feeling of peace" she had while praying - despite the fact she knew I would disown her and she wouldn't see my kids. She expected me to just ball up and follow along bc she had this "peace". That really killed it for me.
  13. Ugh. Crazy, disowned mother sends Christmas card. Puts hubby and I in horrible mood. Geez she needs to learn to take a hint!

  14. I've had to de friend and hide people from my timeline because of all the quotes and bible verses and 'Repost this if GOD IS GOOD!' BS. I just can't deal with it right now, still hurts to see it. Reminds me of how stupid and hypocritical I was.
  15. I'm addicted to a fantastic metal band (neo-classical power metal) from Japan called 'Galneryus'. The lead guitarist, Syu, is the best guitarist I've ever seen! (He's similar to malmsteen). Sometimes his fingers move so fast, they just show up as a blur on camera. What's best, though is their albums usually include one or two instrumental pieces where you really get to hear how much emotion he can pour into that one instrument.
