Religion's Guilt- and Shame-tripping >> Inability to Discuss Sexuality >> Broken Families and ...

...Excessive Health Care Costs and more. [Read ">>" as "Results in" or "Leads to".]The "and more" above includes at least:1) the advantages of the guilt- and shame-tripping for those who devise and promote religion, and2) a serious disadvantage to religion-afflicted people: they need not learn to talk about painful experiences.(Gotta leave now; I will develop this in future posts. Until then, what say you?)See More

Tom, regarding how to add pix, all I can tell you is how I've long since done it on my "How To Do It" page.  If you can show me a specific instance where you want to add a picture and it isn't working, I can look at that.  Otherwise, I have nothing to go by.

M to be getting more judge mental than ever. My mom is Evangelical and has stopped trying to save me. I hate living in Southern California because it is so crowded and expensive and there is no nature but I'm not sure if Tn would work. It would be a place to retire to. Husband is in the music business

I was initially raised Catholic by my grandmother. My father hated the Catholic church. Its good to be in touch with like minded folk instead of biting my tongue.

Thank you for the nice welcome. My area of geophysics is seismology (earthquakes), but I onow you can find seashells in the Sahara. That would be a fun field trip.
