  1. No I got sexually harassed, and find the fact that a world that revolves around sex and money, is not easy to live in, making me an outcast, obsession isn't good for people. I find sex disgusting and drug like, but of course many will defend it because they, well, ENJOY, it. Just like there are many defending school, Christianity, money, violence and etc. I'm sorry that you had to experience that. I know from personal experience how that can warp and distort your view/feelings about sex, even decades after it has occured. Add onto that the guilt/shame already inherent in the Christian religion along with their totally screwed up opinions on sexual activity, and you have a recipe for an extremely skewed view about sex. Have you ever seen a professional therapist to address possible issues from the experience? Umm I did say Christianity had nothing to do with my asexuality
  2. I thought my Beliefs were closed
  3. I apologize to everyone for my seemingly anti sex ways, I think I am just a paranoid person, you have my heartfelt apology
  4. Why do you think that heaven would need faith over good deeds and kindness? Many Christians say because we fall short, but that makes no sense.
  5. But do you see a similarity in the way they think about religion? My main experience is in the Episcopal and Eastern Orthodox churches, but I can honestly say that I don't think anybody cares what anybody believes. If you believe in God that's o.k., if you don't believe in God that's o.k. too. Let's all sing a song. Isn't it that way in neopaganism? Christianity stole from the pagan religions, especially some of their holidays, so they are pagan in some ways, but refuse to accept this.

Just like there are many defending school, Christianity, money, violence and etc. I'm sorry that you don't like sex, but many/most other people do. I find it rather judgemental that you think there is something wrong with people for finding enjoyment in sex. Like what Freethinker just said, I hope you can grow past this point and accept that sex is a part of life (one of the best parts lol). Nooo, I said sexual obsession is bad, not sex in itself, when you take something to the extreme it is not so good anymore

Just like there are many defending school, Christianity, money, violence and etc. Sex is something to enjoy once you have your basic survival needs met, like food, clothing, shelter, such as living in a safe home environment. If you don't have the basics sorted out, then sex is not important. Also, if you've been raised in a strict fundamentalist home, you most likely have views about sex that aren't all that healthy. It takes time to recover from such an upbringing. I hope you can create a safe home environment as soon as possible and then you can focus on slowly undoing the xian brainwashing about everything, including sex. It's not Christianity, the whole sex is everything notion, has got me stumbled my Beliefs are Sex is just sex, until it becomes a universal brainwashing tool The love of money is the root of all evil School is not based on learning, it is based on obedience Christianity is based on hell, not love Spiritual hatred is poisonous and spiritual love is the most important thing in life Intelligence is based on imagination and examination, not knowledge which is just something you picked up Common sense is lost when we refuse to think
  8. neopagans center around goddess worship, nature reverence, magic and no hell

  10. Why focus on the negative? Would you go around listening to heroin addicts tell you how awesome heroin is and that your life is missing long moments of pure bliss? There will always be addicts, and the trick is to marginalize and shun them and enjoy your greater freedom. To listen to them is to listen to the tempting tongue of the devil, if I may entertain you with some christianese. I have no freedom, I am a mentally trapped person in a abusive home with all ways out leading to the negative.
  11. I have two children. I do love them. There are at least seven billion people on this planet that are not my children. I am not able to love the vast majority of them. Heck, in my life I only get to meet about one per million and so far plenty of them have been rude. You are not effected by how much affection I have for the rest of world so why care? Whether or not your fellow human has enough love for humanity is a thought issue. Why worry about thoughts? There are many different motives besides fear, hate and love. You seem to paint everything as black or white. The world is nuanced with many other shades and colors. People resisting their sexual appetites will not make the world a better place. Working directly on problems is what fixes problems. Sex is real and a source of pleasure that is almost as powerful as drugs. I don't know why you find it morbid. Sex usually doesn't involve death and there are methods to resist disease. Depressing
  12. Sex is overrated not love. That has not been my experience. Well sex is all over the place, and talked about all the time up to the point of morbid obsession. Sounds like Christian theology. Are you going to love the people who steal from you? Are you going to love those who molest children? Are you going to love rapists? There are some horrible people out there. The key to survival is protecting our family from those who would harm them.

Christians teach conditional love, and yes you must love these people, as something terrible must have happened to them before they committed these horrible crimes, these people obviously were never taught the importance of love and kindness and the dangers of hatred and cruelty. It is like saying you will stop loving your child if they ever stole from you or committed a crime. If fear is your motivation to do things than you are not going get very far in life. Christians teach fear, they judge constantly, believe everyone is wicked unworthy sinners, and in the past, killed those who did not agree with them, they teach eternal hell for those who are different, and this is love? If everyone hated each other, the world would fall into intense darkness. Love will save this world, the people who have this love are saving the world, while those who bear hatred for anyone, is helping to destroy it.
  14. Sex is overrated not love. When I say love, I mean love for everyone, this is the key to survival.
  15. It's a need on the community level, but not on individual level. I'm rather certain you can have a fulfilled life even without children of your own and without ever getting physically intimate with another person.Acting well enough in accord with your sex drive might also be a need, who knows. When I say acting, I don't mean getting laid, but being honest to yourself about your desires and maybe even submitting to it to some degree in order to avoid having your sex drive go out of control. That degree probably varies according to one's conditioning etc. Remaining single is probably a choice you can't go much into wrong with most of the time, but I don't see a need to say 'never will find love'. Even if you're an asexual or smthn, there are quite a few others like that who still desire a romance. Also, there are many ways to express and feel love (whatever that is) or at least infatuation. There's even no need to get romantic about it oftentimes. For me personally, that is a slight turn-off. Turn off (sex thing?) I do desire romance but am cynical that anyone knows what real love is all about, people get cheated on, treated like sex objects, etc. I personally do not want to put myself in these people's shoes so I will avoid those kinds of relationships.
  16. Sex IS a need. If we didn't have sex....ummm, the species would go extinct in a few decades. It is basic biology. I'm sorry for your struggles with love, sex and relationships. I didn't mean to to be offensive. I wish you wellness, happiness and also... the Love you are seeking for. Before we keep bringing more of us, we should work on building a better world, so that new human beings can be born into a beautiful world with very little violence, instead of coming into a world of suffering and despair. If sex really was a need (a requirement to live) the species would die out because of over population. When many have sex, they think about the enjoyment they get out of it, and never about the continuation of the human race. The main problem I face is abuse so thank you for your concern.
  17. Wow, your statement is depressing to me. Very sad that you don't enjoy such an INTEGRAL PART OF LIFE ITSELF. It is like saying, "eating and breathing depresses me." I get ENORMOUS plaeasure and satisfaction out of sex. Love is a nice add-on, but not necessary to get my jollies off. I could bang a complete stranger and enjoy it immensely, and in fact I have! I have enjoyed porn for years too, but lately it bores me, I like to get it on with a real woman, just looking at them is...meh. I found this comment mildly disturbing, sorry just cannot respond well. I just want a relationship based on true love, unfortunately, never will find it, so I will remain single, specially since sex is treated like a need and not a want. Not when sex is sought over love, the one thing that will bring peace and good in the world, the most important thing in life.
  18. I used to fear death because of eternal damnation, but I no longer believe that mess. I do not fear death, I believe death is just a gentle passing to a different existence. Death is like an exit, a door that you open to enter another room, a peaceful change. I do believe that we continue on after death and that death is not a bad thing, it only brings pain to the people who have lost their beloved to it. I do fear the dying process, the thought of the pain, ouch!
  19. Humans besides dolphins and bonobos are the only creatures that have sex for reasons other than reduction.
  20. I don't think I said a word about who sex is for, but why not! It's not like I'm interested in denying what you say now. Sex drive can be that sort of an obsession, fodder for fantasy and imaginary escape from a life without good prospects. Sex is for the one in love, but it can also be an interesting experiment. A lover might learn to use it, making it also a tool to control the weak-minded with. Finally, perhaps equivalent with the previous, sexual pleasure is evolution's tool to make the brain interested in having sex. Just for curiosity, I don't exactly see any beauty in sex, it just feels good. The fact is sex depresses me, love is much more important. Rape, pornography, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, lust, sexual cruelty, sexual madness what more can I say. If sexual desire was kept under control, there would be no sexual destruction.
  21. Sorry, but that sounds like just another form of obsession. To see it as a filthy sin is one way to dehumanize it, to put it on a pedestal is another. You're basically saying sex is not for people in love but for anyone who desires it similar to how a money monger worships money and chases after it constantly as if it were like a god? Sex lost it's beauty when it became a universal obsession like money and fame.
  22. How do you know which rumors about Jesus are true and which rumors about Jesus are false? Yes I agree that there are so many that taught lies about Jesus. Everybody and his uncle has used Jesus as a tool to further their own agenda. But it sounds like you think somebody has not made up crap about Jesus. How would you know if anything in the New Testament is true? I do remember having my imaginary friend Jesus so I get how awesome that was. He was perfection dreaming about perfection. But then one day I realized that isn't very realistic. The answer lies in universal consciousness, and read the NT and Jesus taught that we are all neighbors and need to learn to love not hate, the real person we should all be angry at is Saint Paul, not Jesus. When I was Christian, my Belief in Jesus was false, since none of us even read the bible even when we were Christian we fail to see what Jesus really said. I have not given up my search for truth and sunk into atheism, I do not believe that there is no such thing as higher reality. It is unfortunate that you think atheism is giving up on searching for the truth. In my experience atheism is the start of the search for truth. I'm not angry at St. Paul either. He was trying to have a better life than a tent maker. Millions of con artists have done the same and if Paul had not then Rome would have use Mythraism instead allowing history to unfold much the same. The trouble with reading the Bible for Jesus is that some New Testament writers had some evil and ignorant things to say. It can do real harm when people believe it too much. Even more so in our modern age. Paul taught the following Misogyny Homophobia Original sin Eternal damnation Slavery Hatred Murder to one's enemies God is love and hate Racism Salvation through faith alone These are what define Christianity today and in the darker ages a long time ago. Jesus taught the opposite out of all these. If St Paul never set his dark intentions around the globe, than we all would have been fools to leave Christianity behind because it would have been a love based religion. How is atheism search for truth? Since science cannot explain everything, how can atheists expect to find the truth without internal experience? I thought atheism had already made up it's mind that there is no spiritual reality only the physical, and that death is not a shift in consciousness, but the end of existence, and eternal nothingness (Which is a fate worse than the dying process) similar to eternal misery that many Christians believe.
  23. I hate to say it, but you probably are. Xtianity hasn't been kind to some of us here, and we were the "least" that they collectively shat on. Unfortunately that also meant enduring abuse of whatever kind at their hands. Not all of us were lucky enough to escape totally unscathed. Anyways, love and altruism are universal concepts based on social norms and mores, they existed long before xtianity was even a thought, and no one religion has the market cornered on it. Everyone within christendom thinks everyone else is lying, and that they've got the truth. With everyone claiming to be the be-all, end-all, they can't all be right. Frankly speaking, that bad reputation is earned, imo. The true teachings of Jesus lie in the 50 lost gospels that were recently discovered. The church was the one that twisted the teachings around and killed off anyone who dared challenge them, including Jesus. Paul was the true founder of Christianity, and he was not a very nice man in the bible, he sought to usurp Jesus. If Jesus were around today, he would be very disappointed in Christianity, but proud of the love based religions.

  25. I was taught all about the loving and kind and wonderful jesus as well. Was brought up through the church school ranks believing in my 'best friend' jesus. Remember this verse? John 10:30 30 I and my Father are one. Now, consider these verses: 1 Sam 15 2 This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” Read the whole of Lev 25, and compare how some housing property (city houses) can be bought permanently just like some classes of people (foreigners), while country houses and hebrew male slaves can only be bought for x number of years and must be freed at "Jubilee." As a colored man, I found it absolutely nerve wrecking to read Lev. 25 and think about the happy hippy jesus I was raised to believe in. It wasn't until I scrutinized my religion like I do other religions that it all made some damn sense. I saw the evolution of judaism and the christian religion that evolved from its teachings. The true teachings of Jesus lie in the Gnostic gospels, if you read the gospels, you will see that Jesus taught selflessness and compassion, also taught to beware the liars who disguise themselves as sheep but are really wolves, the verse you read, is just one of the works created by the lying prophets. True friends of the Christ are not Christians, they are loving and kind people. When Jesus taught he and his father are one, he meant that they are connected, in each others hearts, like saying my friends and I are one. It sucks to know that I'm almost the only one who has not turned to atheism instead of more answers.
