    After 26 years of processing and reinventing history to fit the old book and being treated as a total doormat for living the life of a Matthew Chapter 5 "Christian"... and not understanding why I was treated with such disrespect... especially by the church folks.. and still "staying" with the church for many years...I was able to rewrite my whole mental operating system after forming these three words in my mind "god is imaginary".... and.... all of a sudden.. the way folks behave made total sense to me for the first time in my life. Just like the earth travels around the sun.. and not the otherway around. An adult life of anxiety just simply disappeared... I still have my last bottle of prescription medication from three years ago. Zero anxiety... and so much happiness. I now have 35 or so years left to REALLY LIVE!!!

  1. I don't fully agree. Yes, their problem. But, definitely my problem too as long as this particular symbol is seen as signaling group membership in a group I want zero association with. Ignoring the reality accomplishes little.
  2. Me too. 100% me too. I used to fly the flag. Now, I don't. I want to fly it. But, it would label me as something I don't want to be labeled as. I could fly it in combo with the Rainbow Flag....but then it just becomes another politcal symbol. And.....that would not be my objective. I hope the day returns when I can comfortably fly the flag
  3. OK, I thought I had MOHO's real name on a message somewhere. And, I did just finally found it. It appears he took on a new job in the same month that he last logged in here. So, maybe the new job as something to do with his absence. I don't know. I am pretty darn confident that he is still alive and kicking. I know his employer's name, and, I could easily make a phone call to verify this. But, I would need a very good reason to do so. So, if such a reason exists, let me know. Otherwise, he gets to keep his privacy.
  4. I know what town MOHO lives in/near, and a bit of his background. Won't share on this public forum; but, I can confirm information via PM if it would help confirm their wellbeing.
  5. Yep. It is now mostly, if now nearly completely, defend what I believe, and not seek out what is true. No real point to engage, unless they are hurting those I care about with promoted ugly social norms, or laws that make those I care about "less than".
  6. I total share Fuego's experience. Zero fear of "hell", or any synonyms thereof. And, it is totally awesome!
  7. This. Christian faith that ignores these clear dictates, can it really be honest faith? Of course it can not be faith. It is everything else you mentioned instead. Our observations at the Food Bank Warehouse and at the community distribution locations clearly show that the volunteer folk working to feed the hungry and food challenged are, in order of contribution: 1. Empathetic and compassionate individuals. Overwhelmingly either secular in thought and/or behavior. 2. Corporations and non profit groups. Very impressed by the efforts made by corporations. 3. The Catholic Church and their private schools. 4. "Liberal" churches, Episcopalian, Methodist, Lutheran, Mennonites, etc.... The Evangelical/Baptist/Conservative churches are nearly non existent.
  8. Yes, this works....but at the cost of listening to reams and reams of fallacious logic, threats, and fake sympathy. I have deliberately burnt a lot of bridges lately with this method. I use it for my own benefit, as I find passive aggressive "ghosting" of others to be personal distasteful.
  9. Pure wisdom. ^^^^ Been working on fully executing this over the last several months. I've got a few bridges that need to be burned.
  10. Folks have been redirected to Reddit, Agnostic.com, and ton of varying private and open Facebook groups. So many options for folks these days. Tons of folks at these sites. https://www.reddit.com/r/exchristian/
  11. Yep. "Because god said so" Is the base definition of religious bigotry
  12. It is all forms of emotional blackmail. You are under no obligation to give in to controlling emotional blackmail. It would not be in your own mental best interest.
