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.

sk8eycat, they don't understand because they've probably never researched it, and even if they did, their bible says 'god' wrote this so it HAS to be true and original!

Comment by sk8eycat on April 5, 2012 at 3:10pm

I do understand, really. 

I was LOL-ing that the fundies think that the older pagan spring religious fertility symbols are "secular."  It's similar to the FAUX "news" claims that we've declared "war on xmas" when it was the Roman church that hijacked the solstice holidays (and Mithras'  birthday) for the birthday of their mythical human sacrifice.

They just don't understand that their seasonal holidays and symbols  (and even some saints) were all lifted from older religions.

Real or not, it was still very funny.  The link I posted to the Landover site is similar to an Amazon Review.  I just caught the last section about people who bought this book also bought books by "Adolph Hitler, George W. Bush, and Rev. Fred Phelps."

Comment by Steph S. on April 5, 2012 at 2:29pm
Well if it was a real book my fundy Xtian sister would have that one.
Comment by Pat on April 5, 2012 at 2:24pm

@Chris. Not a "real" book.  It's advertised on the Landover Baptist Church website, which is a spoof on evangelical Xtians.

Comment by Chris Dodds on April 5, 2012 at 2:17pm

@ Steph S. Wait, are you saying that's a real book?  I just thought it was a funny internet image

Comment by Steph S. on April 5, 2012 at 2:05pm
Sk8eycat .. You misunderstand .. I said that is what the xtians are saying on their forums and that book I have pictured below.
Comment by sk8eycat on April 5, 2012 at 12:51pm

Steph, "secularizing Easter"?  It's another pagan holiday that the Christians hijacked for their zombie-god.

Easter=Oestre=Astarte=Ishtar. And so on. 

If xians object to fertility celebrations, then I suggest they have themselves spayed/neutered, and STFU about what the rest of us want to do. 

I hafta laugh at the Seventh Day Adventist "health food" nits who buy fertilized chicken eggs...for cooking.  Or do they eat them raw? Has anyone ever told them they are eating embryos? 

I refuse to buy free-range brown eggs because they can't be candled...who knows what's inside those shells?  Gack!

(A late friend of mine called me a racist when she saw me buying all white eggs once.  She was part African, part Seminole, and part Irish...copper-colored skin with blue eyes. So I 'splained to her about candling...then I asked her if chocolate eggs were brown enough for her, and she laughed.)

@ Steph S. Nothing secularizes easter like the devil's nuts

Comment by Pat on April 5, 2012 at 12:25pm

Steph. That is hilarious!  Lucifer's Testicles!  Is the Easter Basket his scrotum? When you bite off the chocolate bunny's ear, is that the rest of the package?  This is too damned funny!
