  1. Just processing going from non-xtian to realizing there probably is no god - at least like the one portrayed in the Bible? That was about 2 mos. for me. Anyway, your story is one of millions where xanity or some other jacked up religions has destroyed, significantly impacted, or at least put someone's life on hold for years. Side bar: I'd like to see a study of the percentage of control-freak xtians compared with the "normal" population. The study should probably only include the really strict xtians as those seem to be the abusive ones. Then again...maybe a chicken and egg thing? I wonder if Mrs. MOHO is so drawn to the abusive religion because she has a naturally abusive personality or vice-versa. Her son is the exact same way. Treats his wife and 3 daughters like absolute doo doo then screams at them that they are not "walking with the lard" when they push back. Acts like such a loving, godly, pure, hates people who swear, "bless this", "bless you" little goody too shoos at any other time. Went off on a tangent there. Back to you... Glad you're out of that situation and what a totally effed up reaction from MR. Fundy when you left your asshole husband. There is nothing lower that someone who would send an abuse victim back to the abuser.
  2. You make a compelling case here, @Steviejay. There is no god or Satan but yes, god's deeds and descriptions (jealous, vindictive, punishing) in the Bible certainly sound like what xtians portray Satan as. I wonder how many of them, secretly, see that? One of the observations that lead me to investigate, question, and leave xantiy.
  3. Yeah the BITE thing, like the name implies, is quite a bit nastier than most vanilla versions of xanity. Again not to minimize what you went through but I'm thinking those were were exposed to any hard-line BITE control might have additional hurdles to overcome than the typical reader of Ex-C does.
  4. MY standard - which is closely aligned with a number of "standards" but with dumbed down lingo so you and I can understand... Sucks you in with bogus information. Attempts to control you with fear Controls your purse strings Controls your friends Ensures regular doses of indoctrination Provides a "fix" or "cure" for the bogus fear or negative condition they have indoctrinated you with. Not to minimize your experiences but perhaps there are differing intensities of each of these standards from cult to cult.
  5. Me three! Have to agree wholeheartedly with @Steviejay. A few years ago I began to observe a disturbing trend in fundies (some of whom are family members) that prompts me to regard them in the same manor as I regard Muslim terrorists or at least those Muslim radicals who support the terrorists. We send young men and women to die in the Middle East to fight Islamic terrorism but we seam to be ignoring, or even exploiting, religious fervor here at home. We are too soft because they are useful idiots to numerous politicians as well as those wishing to profit from this phenomenon. In addition protecting free speech , which is suppose to help put desired legislators into public office, we sometimes also protect those with hate in their hearts. The idea is that the moment they ACT on their hatred we intervene.
  6. <sarc> Nope. Christianity is not a cult. Nope. Not at all. </sarc>
  7. Welcome to Ex-C, @Jenni, Glad you found us. Your story sounds very familiar. I began questioning due to the incredible stories in the Bible and how the authors sounded more like unsophisticated ancient control freaks than any all-knowing, loving being. So I put that aside and spent months on end praying for something...crickets. One night after my ritual I raised my head and allowed myself to admit there ain't nobody listening. Then I felt incredibly stupid, totally duped, and unconsolably embarrassed. You can see now how religions, and especially xanity, create unobtainable goals so you never quit working towards them. And who does THAT benefit? Not you, obviously. Well then keep in mind that, for most of us, this realization begins a journey that might bring a number of emotions, realizations, epiphanies, and relief. Welcome again and I hope you stick around and read/post. - MOHO (Mind Of His Own)
  8. Worst possible version of any afterlife (real or myth) is the one depicted by fire and brimstone preachers throughout xianity. There is enough evidence from scholars examining archives and tablets found in various discoveries of ancient communities over the past 100's of years, to conclude that the concept of hell was not present the in first several version of the Bible. So, the very concept is tactic is used to scare people into a tizzy wherein they are more easily manipulated. So I think that most would agree hell, the fire and brimstone version, would be the worst case scenario and this is the very reason it is so ubiquitous.
  9. <sarc>I know I'm right and don't mind pointing out the obvious and arrogance amidst the masses here.</sarc> all better...
  10. Seriously though my feeling here is that the concept of an anti-Christ in present as it was (is?) useful for muckraking against one's political opponent.
  11. <gasp!> A manipulative idea in the Bible? Say it ain't so!
  12. Being forced to watch Wood Allen movies over and over..
