    Why did she broke up with me in such a cruel and bad way?

    Do you want the truth...well love itself isn't enough in a lot of cases...you need to have common values and a similar worldview for it to work. That is, going by my definition or 'work', which actually means having a decent time together, not arguing about important things.

    so sick of facebook :P

    I don't have any of my religious family on FB, and I'm not worried about their feelings about it.

    You just can't win with these kinds of people. I make a point of not even having them on Facebook. I can only take so much whining. And I never need to worry about what people think about my views on FB since none of them are friends with me.

    Why did she broke up with me in such a cruel and bad way?

    I agree with Josh. She likely doesn't even realize how manipulative she's being. My take - if someone told me one day they don't see a future with me, and the next, that they're willing to do what "god decides" - well, I likely would tell them I don't want to hear from them anymore right after they told me they don't see a future with me. Also, I would have done my best to ensure the above scenario that occurred with you in this last post wouldn't even have occurred (ie I'd have made a clean break and told them after episode one that we not be in touch anymore). I would see nothing but heartbreak and hardship down the road in this kind of relationship.

    US climate report

    I'm fuckin sorry for posting the topic, ok? Happy now people? Sheesh. All this talk about FREE SPEECH or freedom of opinion yada yada but must harp on when something is posted ("raved about") by a "leftie". Rant over. This is really the reason why I'm so done with this forum. Y'all want it to be some stupid echo chamber, when it comes to any other area outside of religion. Well, I think you're going to get your wish.

    Hey

    Welcome! Christianity can be very harmful for your mental health with all it teaches, and I would recommend seeing a (secular) therapist if you need help processing how it has affected you. I was in therapy myself for awhile and found it very useful. It also helps to have this community here, and our online chat room if you're interested in joining that.

    Are atheists happy

    I had a lot of misconceptions about atheists, and all of them introduced by the church. But luckily when I left the church, I also left behind caring about what kind of conception people had about me, and what I believed. I really cared too much about all of that when I was in the church. So I suppose I had no problem with being labeled an atheist - if people want to judge me negatively for that, then they're just operating with the same misconceptions and stereotypes they've been fed their whole lives, which is actually a pretty good indicator for me that I don't want to have much to do with them.

    Are atheists happy

    Why do you believe God's love is so deep? It's so deep that he couldn't forgive a woman who ate an apple from an apple tree, and he decided that all of us would suffer for this and supposedly be born sinful, and that we require saving through his sacrificing himself. If we don't accept this, we suffer eternal torture. Love? What love?

    Are atheists happy

    News flash: there are unhappy and unhappy people. Whether they are Christian,or atheist, or something else entirely is simply beside the point. Also, one does not have to be 'connected' to (biological) family to be happy. I've noticed from many years within Christianity that 'connection' often spells family dysfunction/unhealthy boundary issues/violations. Also, one major reason for atheists not to be happy with family life is completely valid: if their family doesn't accept them and who they are, can they feel completely happy about that? Speaking from personal experience, I'm less connected to the people around me out of necessity. I'm also much happier. So, I'd ask, how are you defining happiness? I get the feeling you are still very influenced by all the messaging you were given within Christianity regarding atheists. What I would do is ask people themselves, and think a little about how you define happiness. Also, have we been a bad influence? There are a lot of atheists here.

    Finally done with giving Christianity a chance

    People aren't required to spill all the beans about themselves on this very public forum. "Life circumstances' suffices and people should just respect that.

    A Marine’s Story

    I watched Among the Believers on Netflix yesterday. (Fundamentalist/extremist Islamicism in Pakistan). I don't know what it will take for these ridiculous memes and belief systems to die a well deserved death.

    Basically every response I’ve had if I’ve had questions

    I'd ask them if hatred is Christian. And I'd ignore the rest of it. It helps if you realize this is their self defence mechanism acting up - the last thing they're going to willingly do is admit that someone else can be what they label a 'true' Christian, and then become an ex-Christian. It makes them feel too vulnerable.

    A Marine’s Story

    I remember, when I was younger, attending christenings, I was always puzzled by the teaching that we are born with sin. If only I had dug a little deeper then, but no, that's what indoctrination and fear of hell is for, to prevent you from doing that. I was so angry when I read the God Delusion, and the clarity with which Dawkins revealed the sheer idiocy of original sin and hell, and what he thought about the nature of god. I dont think I'll ever forget what a strange mixture of anger and exhilaration that was.
  14. It's true. You're likely the strong one who survived intact in spite of this dysfunctional parenting. Read the discussion below if you're interested.

    A Marine’s Story

    I know a lot of the fundamentalist variety who sincerely believe what they're taught about hell. Therefore most in my family now believe not only I but 99.9% of the Earth's population are bound for hell. They seem to blame people themselves due to free will - somehow it's their own fault for not finding the "correct" church and joining it. Rationalizing this issue is a sin for them. It's the ultimate mindfuck. It results in mental health issues for more than a few of them.
