    I can't speak for Josh here. But if you were speaking to me I'd tell you that I'm not stuck on the evils of your "group" if you want to put it that way, I'm stuck on the harm that anti-LGBTQ opinions and beliefs can do to people. And they do cause harm. And no I'm not speaking of your specific opinions here.

    I want people to get their heads out of the sand and start trying to figure out why they believe things they do, or why they hold the opinions they do. I want them to stop taking what they hear from the pulpit at face value, and start thinking for themselves. This world would be so much better if people bothered to cultivate critical thinking skills.

    I have a really big problem with people who think homosexuality is detrimental or they disagree with it, because they believe in "what people decided" thousands of years ago at a time that has zero relevance to today. And if you think that the opinions of people, particularly in the US, where religion still has a huge grip, are not influenced by what a tribe wrote thousands of years ago, then you have your head stuck in the sand.

    Yeah, educate, it would be great for the other side as well. "At some point in history, people have decided". Yes, thousands of years ago, the ancient Hebrews (or whatever tribe, it's rather irrelevant), who bear no relevance to the world today, how it should operate, and how people should live. Let's leave out for now that what the Bible actually states about this "sin" is far from clear in a historical context. Like it or not, you are arguing for a world where decisions about human rights should be based on ancient texts.

    Did you actually know God, before giving up?

    Ah shit, this was me in so many ways. I finally woke up and started doing, and going, and making plans. And guess what? Now I got a shitload of crap dumped on me from a fundie relative about how my "poor life choices" aka "siding with the devil", are to blame for the problems a sibling is having, you know, because I influenced them and look where it got us. It was pretty difficult not to flip the bird.

    You're on a site for ex-christians. You're in the Lion's Den. You're conversing with people here who have probably in all likelyhood considered some alternatives a lot more than you have. So, if you get asked to provide your argument for the existence of something, why are you chickening out?

    Yeah, people tend to get angry and just tell others they have no idea what they're talking about, or some other such, when they don't want to have a real discussion.

    300 "Predator Priests" / Grand Jury Report

    Yes, I read this one today http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/catholic-abuse-report-pennsylvania-1.4784445 And outright lies and denial from a key figure who covered it up. Why is this guy not in jail? "The grand jury accused Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who leads the Washington archdiocese, of helping to protect abusive priests when he was Pittsburgh's bishop. Wuerl, who led the Pittsburgh diocese from 1988 to 2006, disputed the allegations. "While I understand this report may be critical of some of my actions, I believe the report confirms that I acted with diligence, with concern for the victims and to prevent future acts of abuse," he said in a statement. "I sincerely hope that a just assessment of my actions, past and present, and my continuing commitment to the protection of children will dispel any notions otherwise made by this report."

    @Thumbelina you have also decided to ignore what I have now repeated three times. You havn't got anywhere near the "should I consider the possibility that god perhaps doesn't exist as I know him", and if you don't, you will continue to preach here as you are doing. You aren't even attempted to start a conversation that is open-minded. Instead, you keep repeating more of the same old "the bible says..." and "god says or did this or that."

    Yo @Justus , this bears repeating: Those of you christians who come on this forum and start talking as if what the bible says is the literal truth, haven't realized that you're starting at the wrong point. Try tell us why you think the bible is true, and don't go anywhere near "the bible is true because it's the bible" argument. Same goes for god - don't tell us god exists because he is god. It just proves you haven't even come around to considering alternatives.
  11. I ran across this today in another support group and thought knowledge about these events and conferences should be shared on Ex-Cm as there are certainly people who could benefit. The ICSS runs yearly conferences geared towards those who were born/raised in and survived culltic groups or relationships, and they also have a conference titled recovering from spiritual abuse. There are also a wealth of videos on their Youtube channel (link on their homepage). http://www.icsahome.com/home
  12. I haven't followed the conversation at all, nor do I intend to, but just commenting on this. When people say they aren't racists, it doesn't count for anything. And no, I don't follow or know anything about this dude. I'm simply saying, that because someone says they aren't something, doesn't mean they aren't.

    HOW I RESPONDED TO A CHRISTIAN FRIEND

    👏👏👏So well done, you didn't leave her any room to backtrack from her statements and judgemental claptrap.
