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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

That is the fantastic´christian love´ - but I cannot get why the couple would WANT to marry in such a loving church...

Here it's the same: the most backward rightwing churches want to go on discriminating even if the law says they shouldn't. One of those churches and the connected (all male) political party lost the right to keep women out of their authority structure this month - but they'll go on being stupid. And I wonder what woman would WANT to be in their party?

The self righteous arrogance just keeps climbing, & it's still shocking to me that some americans are still wanting to live in the dark ages!!!!! Some of you guys scare the crap out of me!!!! We have some issues here in Canada, but for some reason I've not seen that severity anywhere here in this day and age.

Good one Sk8ey....my city is full of different native people so we've heard plenty about the residential schools the bloody catholics forced them into. It's all just so damn sick!!!!!

I have to get my barf bucket now before the rage hits!!!!!!!!

I TOTALLY agree with you Tony!!!  I am speechless as well.  The fact that people actually let horrible, horrible, there isn't a bad enough word for them, 'people' lead them wherever they want is scary as hell!  It's sick, and scary, and SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED ANYWHERE EVER.

I just watched the opening of the Olympics, and it was so nice, so much solidarity, and then to hear of something like this sickens me.  I was feeling so hopeful about mankind.  Now I just feel sick.

Okay, calming down now. How these steaming mounds of odiferous, malodorous, reeking, excreted fecal material can call themselves christian, much less human, is beyond my capacity. I mean WTF? In 2012? Really?

And the leader of this flock of shit, acquiesces to save his job? Where is your morality, or is lip service all you are willing to give to racism? All it takes for racism, homophobia, intolerance, prejuidice to flourish is for you to do NOTHING! Obviously, that is what he is good at. There are times when doing the right thing is going to cost. And cost big. This is one of those times. STAND UP!!!

Tony, I don't know what 'christians' think 'christian' means.  These are obviously just racist assholes.

Ooooh1  I love the cats and the dyslexic (I are wun). 

This has been around before, but I think it deserves another viewing in a nasty political year:
