  1. You're allowed to rant. That's why Rants is here. That's why Ex-C is here. Generally we moderators would prefer to save the "reports" for the christians who come here acting like assholes, telling us we're going to hell, and other various and sundry problem children. Not for those coping with escaping the cult!
  2. @FreeFromGuiltHere's a little of my story. My husband and I married in 1973 after 2+ years of dating. We were both raised Catholic, but neither of us attended church. I had stopped believing while in high school. He just kinda shrugged off religion because as he says "the only reason I was raised catholic was so my mom could attend their bingo parties." Anyhow we had our first child after being married for about 5 years and our next one a couple of years later. We always said we were going to wait to have kids to make sure our marriage "clicked". (In retrospect, how stup
  3. MOHO and I are in similar boats and I'll use MOHO's post as examples for me too. (Thanks MOHO!) Here at Ex-C, I have referred to Mr. Buffettphan as my DFH --DearFundyHubby. You are really fortunate that your husband stopped believing when he did. I'm sure life will be so much smoother, easier, and fun! Mr. Buffettphan says he still loves me, but I think he loves the idea of saving my soul more than anything. I only go to church for weddings and funerals. Oh, and my grandkids school functions. Yes one set of them is on the dark side too, although they are
  4. Yeah, they've got to remove their god-goggles first in order to read and study the buybull objectively. Unfortunately sometimes it seems like those goggles are superglued to their faces!
  5. It can be very hard and painful to get past that christian brainwashing. There are as many ways of dealing with it as there are people who are brainwashed. If someone's advice speaks to you, look into it. If it doesn't, move on to something else. Give it time and please don't be so hard on yourself. ((Hugs))
  6. I live in the Richmond VA area. His wife tested positive also. I can hardly wait to find out how many people from his church get sick and spread it to who-knows-how many others. Just about when the curve was flattening here too. Almost all of the new cases in the past few days had stemmed from nursing/retirement homes. I guess that will be changing over the next couple of weeks.
  7. Both. Neither. Either. Take your pick because gawd works in mysterious ways.
  8. Not just the old testament., but the new testament also: https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/bible-interpretation/first-person-misogyny-in-the-bible/
  9. They'll blame it on the evil government/s persecuting them and their right of assembly -- despite Romans 13:1-2 says: "Obey the government, for God is the One who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the law of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow."
  10. ^ This! I have a grandson who was born prematurely. He's 16 now and although he appears perfectly healthy to an outsider, for the rest of his life, he will ALWAYS be at a high risk for anything that affects the respiratory system. There are millions of people who are at risk. People need to stop being so goddamn selfish.
  11. https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/virginia-becomes-20th-state-ban-conversion-therapy-minors-n1148421 My state, Virginia, is the first southern state to pass a ban on conversion therapy. Parents can't force it on their minor children. Well, at least not legally.
  12. The movement is frightening. Following are excerpts from the movie Silhouette City which addresses numerous groups that are behind the movement and is well worth watching. It came out maybe a dozen years ago. Things have gotten worse.
  13. It's so great to hear from you again! Glad you're doing well.
  14. For many years I used to put a Grinch and an Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street under the tree or on the mantle. They were leftover stuffed animals from my kids' childhood. Then I switched to tropical decorations.
  15. That is wonderful news! I am so happy for you.
  16. Done and thank you for letting us know about the survey!
  17. Oh yeah! The show is hilarious and one of my current favorites. Also Showtime's On Becoming A God in South Florida about an MLM pyramid cult/company that sells Amway-type products and recruits the vulnerable gullible true believers, is also over the top yet spot on. https://www.elle.com/culture/movies-tv/a28821223/on-becoming-a-god-in-central-florida-true-story/
  18. Well they "see" all kinds of stuff in and coming from the clouds, so they might as well "see" it on the ground too. Imagination is a great thing....right up to the point that the gullible take it all literally. (And no, I didn't make it past 2 minutes)
  19. Nope. If I were easily impressed, I'd be impressed by you.
  20. HA HA. Sometimes I'd love to live in a bubble away from all the Authentic Christian (and other obnoxious religions') Believers in the world, but alas that's not going to happen. So I live in reality. But I do think it would be nice if christians living within their own martyr complex could escape from it. So I provide resources. Take 'em or leave 'em. As @disillusionedl said above:
  21. I was pleasantly surprised to read that the SSA has been at Baylor for 12 years and already had established chapters at Notre Dame, American University, and Chapman University. I was not surprised to read this: But christians are the ones persecuted....yeah right.
  22. Welcome to Ex-C! Glad you found something that works for you. We do have a sub-forum that you'll probably find interesting. Click on: Browse Forums Ex-Christian Spirituality (near the bottom of the list) This area is for those who have left Christianity for another form of theism or spirituality (Deism, Paganism, Wicca, Great Spirit, The Force, Buddhism, etc.).
  23. @Jagdish Welcome to Ex-C! You'll get the ability to "like" comments once you've made some more comments yourself. IIRC it's around 25ish.
  24. The first link shows the myth of persecution from the early history of christianity. The second link shows that the myth of persecution continues and remains applicable today. A small snippet:
