  1. And he knows it. That's precisely why he's trying to conflate Biden with the radical left.
  2. Thanks for your perspective, Geezer. I have to say that you are the first non-religious person I've met who has this point of view, so I am very interested in hearing more from you on this. I see it exactly the opposite of you (just replace Marxism with Fascism). What is it exactly about the Democratic party that has lead you to this conclusion? Protesting is fundamental to a free society. I am completely against violence, but I see Trump and Fox trying to blow the violence out of proportion specifically for the purpose of bringing in police to show who's boss. This seems fascist
  3. Very interesting. I never would have guessed that Catholics would lean Democratic still. Most I know today are Republican.
  4. I used to feel similarly compelled. But years before I became atheist, I realized abortion rates have declined at higher rates under Democrat Presidents than Republican Presidents. Even when presented with the data, pro-life Christians scoff. But what I see with the support for Trump takes the single issue voting to a level of cult behavior. Beside the claim of being pro-life, is there anything even remotely Christian about Trump?
  5. The cult of Trump escalated my departure from Christianity. As I watched dignity, honor, and character take a backseat to the Republican party, I started to realize how many Christians were really just Republicans. Has it always been this way? I tell myself that before Obama, people argued over policy. Am I wrong? Has American Christianity always been a tool to control elections or are we seeing something new under Trump? I'm not naive enough to think politicians don't pander. I just don't know if I'm only just now (since 2015) seeing it for what it is because of Trump,
  6. Wow! What a story. I'm glad you got free of that world.
  7. WORD OF CAUTION: What I'm sharing is my personal experience. I absolutely do not want to sound as if antidepressants are bad or that anyone should change their medication without the supervision of a doctor. I've had depression most of my life (past 20+ years). As a result, I've been been on Celexa for years. I have had a difficult time focusing and have been constantly tired over the past 6 months. I narrowed it down to my medication but it hadn't changed in years. Regardless, I started my dossage in half. I have tried this in the past (probably once a year) but I alw
  8. It's good to have you here, Jenni. I feel bad that you went through all of that. I am a newer ex-Christian myself. I miss the ritual, friendships, etc., but by and large I feel like a renewed person. Most of my life long anxiety vanished with my beliefs. I hope you find similar relief.
  9. Excellent advice. Thank you for sharing your journey as well. I think you're right. I just need time to reprogram. I recently started listening to Dillahunty and Ra. I really like them especially Dillahunty.
  10. Over the course of my Chrisrian life, I began to move away from a belief in a Western penal Hell and more towards an Eastern Orthodox version of it. To me Hell was being in the presence of God and not wanting to be. I also came to believe that this was only painful for as long as the individual rejected God's embrace (so to speak). So I guess I stopped fearing hell before I stopped believing in it.
  11. Fuego, That's a very good summary. I am trying to keep an open mind, but artificially altering one's perception through the use of drugs doesn't seem like a thing rational atheists would do and then buy into it as if its spiritual. It seems like it should be obvious to such a person, as florduh stated, thay its just a drug induced hallucination.
  12. I've spent some time thinking more about this and reading up on deism. I think it is just me trying to hold onto something. Deism, for me, is just the God of the complex gaps.
  13. TEG nails it. That was exactly my understanding as a Catholic...it was the resurrection. TEG I also agree with your interpretation of the prophecies.
