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

A preacher man meaning well came to the door and said he was saving souls, so I gave him a pair of my old work boots, and said these boots should serve you well, these boots have a soul with plenty of grip for a hard and worn road, they have eyelets to be laced up tight so not to see, and a tongue that does not speak, no ears to hear and will heel without question to everything you say.~Jamie Zabbia. Have a wonderful day;)

Chris G asked "Ruth, why doesn't this site have editing enabled?" I gave up trying Chrome because it wasn't giving me the editing choices at the top of the comment field. As a group moderator, there are no other kinds of editing capabilities that I can enable. Here are my choices.

Regarding editing, for me in Chrome and Firefox, the text editing tools don't show unless I refresh the page, it works first time in IE.

Ruth, why doesn't this site have editing enabled?

thing is, if they are neocons, and if neocons were ayn rander objectors, they were really atheists. so they are willing to lie about their fundamental principles to manipulate and gain power.

intrestingly, i and im sure most of us cud, have preached the true message of jesus while drunk in a bar as a joke, i swear, i had em sucking it up and ready to come to my church tpomorrow. mebe some of us shud go under cover. i imagine it wud be easy to be born again. heh heh heh heh . i'm sure i've let the cat out of the bag and now ill get a message from the ACIA ordering me to remove this post immediately

Oh, I forgot to say that there is absolutely nothing in the buybull that mandates xians to take over the world and "have it their way" till Jeebus "returns." (How can a fictional character "return"?)

 

And, of course they think they are "saved" and will all be going to "hebbin" together, but I think Revelation says somewhere the only ones who will be admitted will be 144,000 Jewish (Israeli) men who have converted to xianity, and have never "known" a woman.

 

Michele ain't goin' nowhere.
