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.

The myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Oh isn't religion just grand?!

Thanks for the links, Carl, they look very useful!

The wedding cake issues are not widespread here at all - but luckily we don't live in a bible belt. Luca and I don't attract negative attention - but a very tall transwoman we know gets male agression.

The first lines in our constitution says that in this country everyone is free and equal and not to be discriminated against, whatever the reason. And because of that, wedding cake hate messages among other things are forbidden.

In other parts of Europe it's the same as with you: more religion, more discrimination. The Poles are ignoring the facts of life in their churches and the Russians are terrified of our western vices...

I just have trouble figuring out the drama aspect or the sensationalism about the news now.

I have used a few references as a general guide to decipher the credibility of news sources.  You can have both left and right-leaning media outlets that have high standards without going to the extreme in either direction.  In my opinion, these guides are pretty much on point.

Good one Chris.

Thanks Bertold.

That's a great post, Chris.  Just curious.  Are countries in Europe dealing with the same type of fanatic religious wedding cake issues as the US?

Mother Jones is for the most part good, solid journalism, from my point of view anyway.
