    Eclectic. I may or may not be interested in any given subject at any given time. Currently, photography, gardening, cooking, reading, gaming, insects, ecology, science in general, odd music and instruments, groups such as Infected Mushroom, belly dancing, horses, learning new stuff, having my perceptions challenged, psychology and curious about BDSM.

    OK So the perception challenging thing can get uncomfortable but learning is part of living, see, and if you aren't learning.....

    Just the one I married
  1. I am a sarcastic woman, and when I get angry I get really sarcastic. Reading that, all I could think of was facing the lot of them and saying: "I really appreciate all the love and support you are giving me. I can't tell you enough how much it means to me to know that you will always be there for me, through thick and thin. Thank you for showing me the true love of Christ." They are so self absorbed that they see only how they are feeling and are completely ignoring how you must feel. I, for one, would want to know what would have led someone who was so fully into the Gospel to suddenly turn away from it... or stop being so involved. How could they NOT want to know and understand? Well Glenn Beck IS an idiot and I would say so even if I wasn't an atheist, and the smart-ass thing to say is "Well, he isn't mentioned in the Bible so I don't have to listen to him." Distancing yourself from your family could be a really good thing. It would be nice if you could rent a room from your GF/BFF parents once she moves out..unless, of course, you two decide to move in together and damn the consequences. Personally, I don't think relocating to Florida is a good idea. You have too much going on now with your lady to move to another state. That is a crock of shit. NO family should put strings on the love and support they give other family members. They are just being selfish asses and they refuse to see how anything they do affects anyone other than themselves. Once again, reference the smart-ass answer I first gave you. If they REALLY loved you, they would not issue ultimatums to try to control your behaviour. Maybe verses from 1 Corinthians chapter 13 would drive home a point: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Maybe you should just do what YOU feel is right for you and your lady and let your family just kiss your ass. Those who seek you out to maintain a family connection are the real family members and those that never speak to you again were never family to start with. "True Christians" should never be passing judgment on anyone because only GOD is allowed to judge, but I suppose that doesn't to apply to them....? I don't know really what to say, except you are the one who has to live with what YOU choose to do. you can't build a life around pleasing other people. You can't be a mental slave to religion, as you have found out, nor can you be an emotional slave to your so-called 'family.' All this is coming from a woman who hasn't come out to her family either but I never get any pressure from them to go to church OR ELSE. For what it is worth, you have a digital family here to vent to and get support from. Dis--
  2. Oh wow.... I also am looking forward to reading the rest of your story. And hurry up with it, why don't you? Its been an entire day! All you are doing is baring your soul to perfect strangers while dredging up and reliving painful memories. How difficult can it possibly be to write the next installment? Seriously, I know how hard it is to post such personal things here, but remember, too, that all of us Ex-er's have been there and understand something of what you have been and possibly still are going through. Your writing is SOOO good! I got to the end and was all "But... but... but... thats it ALREADY?!?!?! NOOO!!!!! I want more!! Where is the next chapter? ARRRRGGGHHHHH!" I hope you have written other things, even if you are not published. You certainly have a gift with words.
  3. Having to watch someone you love suffer so much before they die is a rotten, horrible thing to experience. Sounds like you have had a serious case of cognitive dissonance going on in your head. The best part... well, there are a lot of best parts BUT the best part of being free of religion is that I do not have to seek excuses for why god lets this or that happen or why this good person gets screwed and that bad person is living the life of Riley. Why there were so many miracles in the past but there are none now. The only way to make sense of religion and their holey books is to just say of them: They are all just mythologies, just like tales of Poseidon and Thor. Welcome to the site!!! Vent here all you want to, and then some! There seems to always be someone online here to chat with, and most anyone can suggest books or sites to help you argue with theists. I think that you should write down your story even if you may not share it. I have found it helpful to get things like that out on paper as it is part of what I need in a healing process.
  4. I am a spitfire so consider yourself warned
