    My Story

    Ohhhhhhh! Geezer - not Weeaer. My bad... ...to which I made reference to the two main fundy figures in my life being TOTALLY tolerant of ALL walks of life - as long as they fit into the very narrow (I hope) cross-section of the population who are just like themselves.
  2. Clearly this is all in in scripture. Have you not seen The Stand?
  3. OH MY GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWD! We're here for 'ya if you need anything. </sarc>

    My Story

    You and @Weezer are BOTH NUTZ! My wife and her son are the most accepting of white, heterosexual, gun-toting, ultra-conservative, well-dressed, non-cursing, non-sinning, god-fearing human beings, that I know.

    My Story

    Welcome to Ex-C, @SoulRebel95. Living with an authority figure (you are living in her house) is trying when that figure is hell-bent on ramming their superstitions down your throat. Sometimes you must do the unthinkable and play along with some of it until you are out on your own. I am in a similar situation in my unequally youkedness and I understand how it can be. What really chaps my hide is when, and Mrs. MOHO is all about this, they spew their nonsense in a tone that suggest YOU are the ignorant, sinning, un-knowing little turd. They have authority over you because they are thumping their bible. This is also true of the asshats (I LOVE that vernacular) who are holding church services against quarantine orders and actually using that defiance to PROVE to their flock that Jesus has their collective backs. Back to you. Glad you found us and I hope we can provide some comfort and comradely during your tough time. - MOHO (Mind Of His Own)
  6. Please provide links to current news articles, in the U.S. , where this is happening.
  7. FYI: This works in FireFox. Thanx, TAb! @TABA
  8. No one is begin "overlooked" because they are handy-capped.
  9. You are 100% correct, @TruthSeeker, this pandemic HAS revealed what kind of society we live in. We live in a society where people pull together to assist each other. Our leaders released funds to help, are cutting read tape to allow faster production of vents and testing of a vaccine. There plans afloat to assist renters and mortgage payers as well as assist those who are suddenly out of work. And for your information those who EARNED more in the States are to receive a smaller check or, in our case, nothing at all. I am sick and tired of hearing about how we are not doing enough for the downtrodden and those with their hands out. I would like to hear some of these folks thank the rest of society that PROVIDES what they ARE getting. Now, @TruthSeeker, stop the bellyaching and wining and DO SOMETHING to make the situation better!
  10. @Margee, I don't believe the U.S. or Canada will sit idly by and allow anyone to lose their homes. Especially those who have been making payments for 2+ decades. That, in and of itself, would have a huge impact on the economy - an impact neither country wants.
  11. We're kinda regular too but we do have a cushion in the bank. My work is "furloughing" people and, so far, I have avoided that. I figure after the next 2~3 weeks I may be done there. There are programs to replace incomes - costly in the long run - but necessary. My biggest fear is Mrs. MOHO draining our savings and shipping it off to Pastor AssHat. She is immersing herself in the end-times B.S. but keeping her head on - for the most part - for now. The thought of that is causes me more anxiety than anything. If I see any evidence of any financial activity or much more talk about this then I will perform my own run on the bank but only from one account another. One that Mrs. MOHO does not have access to. That, our revered Ex-C Mommy, will cause a divorce. My hope if that happens is that things calm down and she sees what a huge mistake both the sending money to the church or a divorce wold be - before it happens.
  12. Yes the financial situation is quite sound compared to 2008. There are folks waiting in the wings, as we've seen recently, ready to purchase devalued stocks. Plus there are government programs and expenditures directed at those who need a safety net or two. Of course that's mostly in the U.S. not Canadia where @Margee is. What can you say about any gub'mint programs up there, Margee? Also this virus is not going to kill more than 3~4 % (bad yes, but not the end of the world) and when folks realize that all will start to get back to normal. It's important to guard ourselves and others so there is no run on hospitals but not so that we don't all die. 80% are recovering.
  13. @Margee, If, and that's a big if, there is a run on the banks then measures will be taken to limit said run. They will close the brick and mortar and limit internet transactions to so many per day. Debit cards are already limited to so much $$ per day. This will ONLY Happen if there is, in fact, a run on the banks. We're not there and we won't be unless there is panic. Personally, if there is a panic run on the banks, then I hope the response is swift and sure in the interest of quashing the cash hemorrhage early enough to quell any fears or further panic withdrawals. Speculation on my part but I've been doing finance/banking software for a couple decades now...
  14. @freedwoman, As @florduh pointed out everyone has undergone differing levels of indoctrination. Not sure if we all respond to the same stimulus the same but I'm sure you can find the answer to that on the interwebs. Just keep in mind that your fear and angst are the result of said indoctrination (professional speak for brain washing) and it can be undone. Keep reading/posting here. Read from the myriad of authors on the subject - the works of many of whom are offered here, and stay the hell away from anything that will reinforce the B.S. We're talking church, churchy friends who cannot stop talking about jebus, xtian music, fundy spouses (Yes, I leave the room when she starts churching out!) , and abscessing about hell. Once the indoctrination begins to wain you will start to realize how stupid and man-made all the fundy crap is. Baby steps, Free. Baby steps.
  15. Welcome, @ShellyD99. You're in the right place for discussing all those things you mentioned. Not me. There are smart people here for that. Discussions about unequally yokedness... I got 'ya covered. - MOHO (Mind Of His Own)
  16. is anyone else having issues with the main blog tab?
  17. These scum-sucking shit-bags think they are above every law because they thump their bibles and talk to god. People revere them as if they ARE god. That's how they get away with raping their flock - in more ways than one. Mrs. MOHO watches Sunday services on the Interwebs but goes to Sunday evening prayer meeting. I've expressed my concern that she will bring home a bug and kill us both. That seemed to give her a modicum of pleasure. I hope that is due to the ctrity-bitty hope that Jesus is coming for them, soon ' cuase otherwise...well...
  18. That's all well and good but women absolutely, positively cannot be carpenters. The logic behind that assertion is quite scientific - you see women have a serious problem with measuring. The reason is that, for years women have been told, over and over, that this (holding index finger 3" from thumb) is TEN INCHES!
  19. ... and Christianity is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo different that the Islamic faiths.
  20. OK. So, this afternoon, while Mrs. MOHO is begin a good little xtian wiffy and making my lunch I will inform her that she can hold the mayo.
  21. @LeiaBryant, One could argue, very easily, that Christianity in it's classic form, views women as subservient to men. You have left the man-made doctrine behind as have many others.
  22. Miracles are another name for favorable unexplained circumstances.
  23. Rut Row. Stepped in it that time, didn't I?
  24. I just HAD to open my big mouth, didn't I? Trust me. I'm a legend in my own mind.
  25. For your information, Mr., Guitar Center IS essential. In fact I ordered a Gibson ES-330L from them last week and it arrived yesterday. Of course I sprayed the shit out of the box, the case, and cleaned the body and strings, then washed my hands before wailing on it!
