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.

I've gotta agree with Joan and Ian. But you knew l would. I'm sure you're not the only one who objects to their religion being brought out with the food.

Perhaps God should pay for the pizza, Randall if they trust in Him to meet their needs? You can tell them that they can have their beliefs but that you don't want them sent through your door. It's your threshold and your life; therefore your rules prevail

Randy, this is an example of the Pinch Theory, something happens that causes one to feel a pinch, a discomfort, and he or she says, "Oh well" and lets it slide. Another pinch, another "Oh well", another pinch another "Oh well" until one day is the straw that breaks the camels's back and he or she blows up in an all too familiar temper tantrum. 

I respectfully disagree with Carl, I would send a message that because of their basic principles of faith in a superpower, I am boycotting their product. Just a few minutes of time, you expressed your opinion, they know not everyone shares their belief and they lost a customer. 

I do agree with Carl about picking one's battles, but when did blacks stop saying "Oh well"? or women stop saying, "Oh well", and GLBTQ stop saying "Oh well"?

Sorry your walk was ruined, Randy! Ugh!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 14, 2014 at 7:46am

Randall, in all honesty I would just let it slide.  Yes, it is obnoxious to me as well, but it is their prerogative to run their business under those principles.  It is also our prerogative not to purchase their products. 

We need to pick our battles, and I don't think this is one of them.  It would be different if the way they ran their company had a negative impact on their employees, such as with Hobby Lobby.  Just my 2-cents.

While walking the dog last evening, I picked up a tossed cardboard "Hunk of Pizza" box (to carry home and deposit accordingly). I noticed a message on the box: "Our Guiding Principles; Place God First in All We Do, Trust God to Meet Our Needs". I was, and still am, quite disgusted and appalled. I'm thinking about emailing them some words of disapproval. Any suggestions on what to tell them (Hunt Brothers Pizza)?

Yes, Patricia, Dave Allen. 

Comment by Patricia on August 14, 2014 at 1:26am

That's a good one Carl......Dave Allen by chance?
