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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

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

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It pleases me to see more secular (i.e., sports) stuff on the telly shown on Xmas day than anything religious. From what I could tell, there was nothing associated with Christmas on TV, not even any old "cartoons" like Charlie Brown or Frosty the Snowman. No Mormon Tabernacle Choir, either. All the regular Monday shows were on with the addition of 2-3 football and 3-4 basketball games. This is a good sign for secularism.

I haven't taken well to coercion in recent years.  Anyone telling me I "have" to go to church might discover that they HAVE to go to the Emergency Room.  'Nuff said.

As for Christian Science, Seth Andrews did a more than a little disturbing expose on them and other cult-like Christian practices some time ago.  Worth your time, if on an empty stomach!

Very good, Ian! I wish we were that far in renewable energy, but still the wrong government.

Hello Dr.  Ernest Williamson III

Like Nancy Reagan said about drugs Just say NO.

Church can be avoidable if you limitt and restrict the time of the visit.  If you are going to eat dinner at the church rather than attend mass  then enjoy the meal and the company.

Comment by Dr. Ernest Williamson III yesterday

well everyone, i'm being forced to go to church today by my parents; i'm 40 years old by the way! Atheists and agnostics are still bound by majority rule in many respects; wish me luck!

Comment by Patricia on December 26, 2017 at 1:54am

Sounds good, Ian.

Comment by Ian Mason on December 26, 2017 at 1:51am

Some positive news. It seems that Denmark has run on 100 % wind power over Xmas. There's always high domestic consumption at this time of year but that has to be set against industry being mostly shut down for the holidays. Still, a positive message.

I lived across the street and one house away from a Penticostical church. Fortunately I lived downhill so I wasn't subjected to the boom boom noise my neighbor was.

I would have been in noise battles as much if I lived where my neighbor lived.

The church was in session four evenings a week. They provided day care for children. The kids and children were okay and played around.

I got along okay with the preacher and people who attended his church however constantly asked the preacher to keep his low frequency music down (mainly for my neighbors sake who I visited dailly.

Unfortunately the problem was solved shortly after the preacher took a bunch of practicitioners about thirty miles away for tobaggan rides.

The preacher's Tobaggan ran into a tree. He acted like a airbag so the kids, and others behind him weren't injured.

The Preacher was injured quite a bit, my neighbor and I tried to talk him into going to the doctor.

Unfortunately the preacher declined and said the practitioners will prey for him. He said, that's all he needs.

A couple of days later my neighbor and I tried to convince him to to go the hospital - again he refused saying god and his practitioners will take care of him.

Three months later he was unable to preach and the practitionsers for the most part stopped comming/going to his church. I felt sorry for that guy, cause I always like him. He never proslytized to me. I just didn't like the music.

The good news is the noisy music stopped rattling my and my neighbors house.

Christian Scientists.

The preacher stayed at the church with a few loyal practitiners visiting once in a while so he didn't loose his church.
