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

The pope has been used to men in dresses, he is one himself. And a meeting would just be mumbling and blessing and nothing important would happen, just like politicians who are baby-hugging.

Great, Bertold!

Excellent point, Ian - clearly the godster's a hermaphrodite. Pope Frankie needs to listen to Lou Reed:

Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."

Could I raise my feet too?

Comment by Loren Miller on December 19, 2017 at 2:46pm

Who here would PAY to see Pope Frankie confronted with a trans woman or man?  [raises BOTH hands!!!]

'In the image of God created he them. Male and female he created them.' God is therefore both sexes, male and female. Or what? Can a 'he' create a 'she' in 'his' own image? Either God is a bit confused or the Bible authors are and neither should be trusted.

Oldest profession: the first mention of a prostitute in world literature is 'Shamhat', a temple prostitute in the 'Gilgamesh' poem. If there was a temple, there were priests. Plus, recent historical and archeological studies point to organised religion beginning at the same time as hierarchical society. Therefore, priests as paid ideological enforcers for tribal chiefs. That's my way of thinking.

And the theist evil continues.
