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.

At the moment, i am obsessed with an idea: "Meaning (and even life) is light stored (in our brains) in the form of pictures". People are led by what they see - that explains 'society produces common destiny'. For minority of us knowledge relaxes, and logic and reason are methods to knowledge. But for the majority, it is irrational methods to relaxation. And seeing is believing + truth by following majority.

Well, rats.  How did I mess that up?  It was JFK's response when the fundies were having hissy fits abouth the fact that he was Catholic when he ran for pres in 1960.

Sorry about messing up the page, folks.  =8>(

And the Pee Tarts are still yelling that...as if it were unconstitutional or something if he was.

How many of the members here are old enough to remember the ruckus among the fundies when JFK ran for president?  Because he was Catholic.

McCain did silence a woman who was hysterically yelling that Obama was a muslim.  It was at a town hall meeting.

Right on, sk8eycat! I firmly believe that religion belongs in the church (or other religious institution) and in the home, but not in public. When I was a child, I always hated Christmas and Easter in the public schools, and I hate the religion that people want to bring into public life. I defend everyone's right to their own beliefs, but don't impose them on others!

He didn't, but Colin Powell did.
Comment by sk8eycat on September 22, 2011 at 12:26pm

I think (not absolutely sure, but I do remember the incident) somebody was yelling that Obama was Muslim, and McCain told her that a) he had worked closely with Obama in the Senate, and b) that he knew he was definitely xian.

I was disgusted that he didn't say that a candidate's beliefs should be a private matter, and to stfu.

in no politician.  cant be, im way too honest.  but i think there was a meeting where mccain corrected his audience. i forget what it was about
Comment by Carl Pastor on September 22, 2011 at 1:58am
in the video i posted, she is right, not one rep presidential candidate expressed disgust at what the audience said.  that's really sick.  im baffled by this. how can these people call themselves christian when they have lost any semblance of compassion or empathy. what, am i a parable, "the good atheist"?????
