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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Oops, thought I was posting in the food group.  I'll put a pointer in there to here.

Well, we had some puns in the FOOD discussion, so we need a few here.  IMO.

Carl, I love the "Stable Myth" cartoon....I just forwarded it to a few atheist friends....and am thinking about sending it to a Catholic...

I (who have had WAYYYYYY too many surgeries) have often wondered about the effect of all the bacteria crawling around in a pre-Pasteur stable on a woman who has just given birth, not to mention on the infant.

Randall, that's not a "spoiler;" I remember the trial.  The wife was so brainwashed from birth that she believed that putting up with that kind of treatment meant she was a "good xian."  After she left her husband, she became a JW....worse and worse.

Her childhood brainwashing doesn't alter the fact that her paintings are garbage...like Kinkade's.....  Little old ladies (especially ones who were hippies in the '60s) love that kind of crap.  Their husbands LOVVVVVE the poker-playing dogs.    Gaaaaahhhhhh!

OK Sk8eycat, you've made me puke. Are you happy?? Those things are even worse than dogs playing poker!

Happy Holidays to you also, Deidre.  I hope it's enjoyable for you.

Chris, this is just for you.  The Xmas story without all the sugar-coating.

2 bibles?! I hope they go down well, and don't forget the doggybags when you walk him...
