Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

LOL!  I always think of a lonely middle-aged spinster singing, "And he walks with me, and he talks with me, and he tells me I am his own."  Sounds like there's more romantic longing than worshipful praise in that one.

I have thought for years (decades) that saying something like, "Gawd wuz lookin' out fer me today," is the height of arrogance.  Especially when other people, just as religious or just plain good, have been killed or maimed.

If you listen closely to xians, you'll learn that the whole religion is about "Me-Me-Me."  "Jesus Loves Me," "My lord and savior," and on and on.

That was one of the many things that finally turned me off about the whole megillah.  And most other monotheistic religions aren't much better.

I just saw this on CNN.com's home page this morning, and I thought I would share it with you ... because A|N IS an international community, and maybe sometimes we need a reminder that our problems are not necessarily unique to us ... or to U.S., if you get my meaning.

The lies they tell you! Not one word of truth about what he says on the Netherlands.

I don't envy you at all! What about that last line: that life begins at conception? I hate to think of the consequences - even less women´s rights.  

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on February 18, 2012 at 11:12pm

Thanks for letting us know, Chris. That's a horrifying precedent.

Comment by Jason Fleming on February 18, 2012 at 9:19pm

Even worse, we can't even vote the Governor out of office for signing this piece of sh*t as we have single term limits. They always play to their base because re-election is never an issue.

Comment by Jason Fleming on February 18, 2012 at 9:13pm

I'm ashamed to admit I live there.
