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.

Re: WTC "cross" 

 

Fundies are so narrow-minded that it doesn't occur to them that those towers weren't occupied by xians only.  Or even American citizens only.

 

And I wonder how many more years we are going to wallow in this.  We still remember Dec. 7th.  But we've almost totally forgotten July 20, 1969.  Disgusting.

Anyone else hear about that preacher that kidnapped four women and raped three of them behind his own church?!  His name is Dale Robertson.  How many more Dale Robertsons are we gonna hear about before people learn?
Comment by Chris Dodds on August 24, 2011 at 6:33am
Julie, the Jon Stewart thing I'm taliking about is in fact the 9/11 cross thing.  I don't think that he meant to attack atheists, but it just came off like that since he only cited Fox News as his source.  I actually sent him a letter detailing why we were suing and even telling him that after an interview about on Fox News, the entire atheist community received death threats via Fox News' facebook page.  I don't think it did anything.

It sounds like the building most damaged was a church.  Of course, it's a message from god.  Personally, I think the big guy was saying "don't waste anymore money on this church."

Paula, I read them, and what saddens me is that they were so ignorant, with bad grammar and spelling, and so many of them were written about god punishing us for gay marriage, by blacks and Latinos -- who, of all people, should know about discrimination!

Here is a sample of comments by so-called Christians regarding today's earthquake.

Chris, which Jon Stewart thing? About the cross at the 9/11 museum? I haven't heard much more about it.
