  1. This forum is beyond the pale.

  2. I used to believe that Unitarian Universalists had orgies during their congregational gatherings.
  3. A Note From God: Today's Rapture has been canceled because I'm tired and fuck that shit.

      I'm going to guess he never replies.

      You can follow God on facebook to. He replies!

  5. Martyrdom has always been a proof of the intensity,  never of the correctness, of a belief. — Arthur Schnitzler (1862–1931)

    Race Relations and Religion

    @L.B. I'm so glad you brought this up! I'm an African American whose deconversion had a lot to do with the white supremacy that is inherent in modern American Christianity. I tried again and again to give Christianity a chance, and this is the very thing that sent me running away almost every time. And now white Christians are by and large in on this "take our country back (from the black and brown people)" and supporting racist policies. It's a shame. I have thought about being a Unitarian Universalist because they are vocal and active in matters of social justice. However, there isn't a lot of ethnic diversity in those congregations either. It's strange.

    if you speak it, it happens - the dark side

    What's worse is when they teach that you can use words to command money to land in your lap... after sowing your financial seed into their ministry.

    I was told to never talk about a bad dream, because it would come true. I don't know how many bad dreams I kept to myself, which was torturous. I'm glad I don't remember them.

  10. I've been living this way for a long time because I have this idea that there's no telling when I'm going to die. It could be 50 years from now. It could be 5 days from now. I struggle with making 5-year and 7-year plans because of this belief. How do you balance these ways of approaching life and death?

    Odd Combinations of Beliefs

    They can be opposed to homosexuality. I figure it would be rare.
  12. Has anyone ever met someone with a bizarre combination of beliefs? For example, atheists who are opposed to homosexuality, or Christian atheism?

    My Answer Was No!

    Yeah, that's a risk. Even when Jehovah Witnesses approach me, I let them know I'm pagan. So far I haven't encountered confrontational types.

    My Answer Was No!

    I was taking the public bus home from work last night, when a lady struck up a conversation with me about nutrition. During this conversation she asked me directly, "Do you believe in Jesus as your savior?" In the past, I would have projected fear of her response and said yes just to keep the peace, but this time, I flat out said no. She didn't try to convert me or anything.
