I alone don't have the 100+. That's where you come in! What's your guiltless pleasure?? I'll start...

 

1. Alcoholic Drinks

 

2. Hooters (just the eye candy, the wings suck)

 

3. Thinking, "Damn, that chick is hot!!"

 

4. Giving a homeless person money and not thinking about some "heavenly reward"

 

5. Cussing again (It's feels fuckin' great!)

 

(keep 'em comin' folks!)

Don't worry about the numbers. Apparently, a few of us are all thinking at the same time. That's right, THINKING, which is not a bad thing! So, add numbers or don't. That's why I called it 100+ things. I knew there'd be more than 100 but that's the "magical" number so I wrote it.

 

Let's get really crazy...

 

79. Not thinking that it's ok by Jesus' standards to eat pork or shrimp because if, god forbid, we were on the OTHER side of this testament, we wouldn't be able to enjoy bacon wrapped shrimp!

 

You all are so awesome!!!

83. Not mourning that my dogs, cats, bettas, ringdoves and cockatiels would be denied a place in Pair-uh-Dice cuz they don't have souls (especially since most of my pets have much more loving souls than Xians).

 

84. Not having to "rejoice in suffering" cuz it proved how God loved me and I was being tested. Suffering sux, y'all, and is to be avoided, relieved, or shortened; whether the suffering be mine, my fellow human, or a "soulless" animal.

Masturbating to the thought of whoever or whatever I want, and not having to repent afterwards.

 

Knowing that if I were single, I could maybe go out and get laid and have fun.

 

Smoking weed.

 

Not having to go to church. Fucking boring!

 

Not having to be all hung up about God's plan for my life or my calling or whatever the fuck.

 

Not having to despair because nobody's getting saved, my church isn't growing, and... maybe God doesn't give a shit?

28. Having extra money -- no church tithes. It's like getting a raise! And when I do give to a charity, I know it's a worthwhile one.

First and foremost for me - being myself, FINALLY! My whole, thinking, loving, booty-shaking, heathen god honoring self!

I love not feeling like I have to be something else just to please some abusive sky-bully.

I love getting tattoos!

Living in sin with my wonderful boyfriend!

Not feeling guilty for every lustful/angry/"blasphemous" thought that crosses my mind.

Numberwhatever: Not having to worry about, new info, being things of the devil and not biblical.

 

Numberwhatever2: Not having to feel guilty when I did nothing to nobody, and having to explain to myself how one could fornicate in the heart(yet not actually sleep with someone), and the like.

Having sex with my lapsed-Muslim boyfriend and LOVING it.

 

Being myself, humour-wise - I have quite a dark, irreverent sense of humour that I ruthlessly suppressed during my Xtian years.

 

Embracing my femininity without needing to feel that I was of inherently lesser value than men - that bullshit about "submission" is one particular aspect of doctrine I won't miss.

 

The knowledge that really, I am accountable only to myself (within the limits of the law, obviously).

 

Not having to defend stances or opinions that I really never held in my heart of hearts anyway. Knowing that if I get into a debate about the meaning of life, god's existence, morality, etc. that I have nothing to defend - I can just soak in the information and make what I will of it, I am under no pressure to conform to a preset standard.

 

Being able to accept people as they are - gay, straight, religious, nonreligious, conservative, liberal, etc without feeling obliged to judge them by "God's standards"

 

Partying!!

Not having to listen to the rantings and ravings, yelling and screaming of a misogynistic, homophobic, people hating thug of a pastor.

Not having to submit and "obey them that have the rule over you for they watch for your souls" crap

Not having to live any longer with my abusive alcoholic husband because he needed to "be saved" and I was his only chance.

Not having to fret and worry about "the lost".

Being liberated totally in my mind and all of my being.

Being free to educate myself in all things.

Being free to indulge myself in the arts and literature.

Being able to accept everyone for who and what they are.

Being able to see all the different 'shades' in this world, and not in terms of black and white, the saved and the lost, us and them.

Being able to get back my self esteem, it had been brought to zero and minus.

JUST BEING FREE

Oh yeah, that too. Being able to periodically indulge in wrath, hatred, anger, rage, spite, etc., without having to stifle it or repent of it.
