"I appreciate all the personal stories and commentary. It feels good to not be alone in my views. I remember refusing to go to church when I was about 10 or 11. I told my parents I was skeptical and couldn't be forced to practice a religion I…"

"I actually served Tammy Faye a few times in a restaurant when I worked as a waiter. This was in the late 80s or early 90s. She was quite nice. I'm almost ashamed to say I lifted a cloth napkin she used that was left covered in makeup.I brought…"

"Just look at all the support we give and receive on the internet because we care about each other. That is what counts.  Anyone heard from Carl the last couple of days. I don't want to put pressure on him to keep in touch. I rejoice when…"

"The thing that I missed the most when I left my church was community, and that was relatively easy to rebuild. As to church involvement in people's lives, such as visiting the sick or dying person is something that anyone can do, even humanists…"

"Same for me and I stopped donating to the church as soon as I could. Once you have to choose between buying catfood or donating, the choice is easy. And I can't find the only thing a church might be good for in this thread: I mean community…"

"The word "tithe" means a tenth and that's where they get the 10% idea. It's in Malachi 3: 9-10 and was originally a grain tax brought to the temple as grain. The idea of the scripture was that the Jews were holding back their…"

"The behaviour of that church is disgusting. Too bad she doesn't seem to see that they only care about her *money* I just calculated how much she would pay each month out of $2,000 and it came out to $166.6666666 XD"

"It is horrible.  Even evil. As a young child, I was brainwashed to give 10%, and as I got older, they wanted more than that, for building fund, missionary fund, & several others.  I gave about 100 thousand dollars before I woke-up. If…"

Hi Buck,

Thanks for the friend request. We can all use friends! It's also helpful perusing the various groups, some are more active than others. They are growing quickly.

I know what you mean about aging parents. I regret that I'm so far away from mine, in Illinois. I couldn't live in their small town, and they always declined my offers to have them move here with me. Still, it would be nice to just drive over to their house and help out with chores or whatever.

Hi Buck,

Welcome to A|N. It was interesting reading your profile. I've lived quite a number of places, mostly midwest and for most of the past 20 years, pacific northwest. I imagine Kansas is a bit like Indiana. When I lived there in the 80s, and being gay myself, I had a lot of fear due to local religiousness and bigots. Even so, most of my closest friendships formed there as well. Now, I don't have so many friends, but life is more secure.

I hope that you are able to explore and express yourself on A|N as well as home.

Best Wishes,
