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.

There was a very long article about Michele Bachmann in last week's New Yorker that went into quite a bit of detail about Dominionist Theology.


I had to print the entire 18 pages because I can't stare at my monitor for long enough to read the whole thing without pain, but it was worth it.  Highly recimmended!

That would be so funny if it wasn't so scary Carl.

'rather not say' i wonder if deep down the capitalists want to full-fill prophecy and subconsciously have polluted the planet in order to get "raptured" up during their lifetime.

Of course that's what it's about. Have you read about Christian Dominionism, Charismatics, apostiletics, or reconstructionists?
It the header was working I'd provide links.
Here's a place to start:

That's what Michael Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, Roy Moore are - and former president George W. Bush was.

Ruth when these open they often don't have the header to allow for text editing. Can you fix that. I don't have that problem with other Nexus forums.

the people im stuck living with think these hurricanes are a sign of the end times. oh how it gets on my nerves when there is a earth quake and a storm right after each other. the irony is that the capitalist agenda of profit at all costs has damaged the planet and caused these events to happen... i wonder if deep down the capitalists want to full-fill prophecy and subconsciously have polluted the planet in order to get "raptured" up during their lifetime.
