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.

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Seth Andrews has been through the mill as it comes to dealing with those who insist that their faith in a deity is not just valid but necessary to their lives and to all lives.  Having dealt with that gauntlet and come out the other side an atheist,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Like father, like father. Scalia Father, Scalia Son, Uganda and Stone-Cold Silence of U.S. Ca...

"Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia's son Father Paul Scalia has served as a chaplain for the Catholic group Courage.  Yesterday in the Los Angeles TimesMichael McGough notes the younger Scalia's connection to Courage, and points out that Father Scalia has gone on record suggesting that gay people don't really exist--there are only homosexual acts"

Where is the outcry from Roman Catholics who know this is a construct of human imagination and has nothing to do with religion. Where are the howls from protestant communities who know better than the Scalia tribe? Their silence creates static on any of their messages, not worth listening to.

I'll be waiting for the public outcries from other religious groups who condemn the pope's actions and words, but I'm sure all I'll hear is chirping crickets.

CATHOLIC CHURCH ENDORSES MURDER AS POPE BLESSES UGANDA’S ‘KILL THE ...

Thanks to Patricia for this report. 

I don't know where to begin! A group of people who claim to value love, care, compassion, concern, for others allows their leader to make such a murderous blessing on hatred. It sound so much like the Old Testament stories of genocide and slaughter of innocents, and New Testament imperatives to leave loved ones to serve such a god. I just feel disgust! Don't you speak to me about love; you don't know the meaning of the word. Not just Roman Catholics, but evangelical christians spout such foul thinking. 

"SHAME ON YOU.

"That you could find a way in your mind to justify this act of endorsing murder and oppression says more about the stranglehold the Catholic Church has on your mind, and its primary function as a death cult used for social control, than it ever could about notions of “love” and “acceptance,” of so-called “Christian” values."

For crying out loud. Act your age. There is no Santa !

Sometimes I just can't believe you!!!


I wonder if I could change this to "Nude God"....or "Nekkid Jesus, Mary & Joseph, and the 3 Magi"

Good morning all. Getting ready for the grind. Want to leave you with this. The Yi Peng festival in northern Thailand. Sky lanterns made from rice paper, and powered by candles.

Have a great day you guys. I'm off to work.
