"Oh, please don't be a stoic!  They are such self-righteous bores, and YOU are not boring at all!"

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious

Most of my mornings are filled with top 40 hits of pop music as I commute to work, kids in tow. This radio station is a clear favorite for all of us with its variety, and usually I can ignore the music and let the kids enjoy a little be bopping before going to school. Recently though, we discovered that on Sunday mornings there is a half hour of programming starting at 7:30 a.m. that is evangelical in…See More

"Imagine that, Amanda. People told you that they loved you and then had you practice your whole life for the eventual abandonment that this kind of love would produce. It's like the "Scared Straight" of the religious world only you are…"

"I have been there, somewhat. By the time I left (actually, though I had seriously doubted for years earlier). Rather than a long discussion of my history, I would advise that you don't try to overthink your interaction with your new companion.…"

Damaged And Dating: A Situation I Never Thought Of Until Now

I am a survivor of religious brainwashing and amplified abuse due to religious influences in my childhood household.I was trained from an early age that life was a constant battle between the divine and my imperfect flesh. I was regularly made aware that there would come a day when I might wake up and find everyone I loved gone; vanished from the very face of the Earth. If this happened, then I was…See More

About Me:
Zomberina Contagion was born into the world of hungry companies, disillusioned people, and unspoken ideas in 2006. After wandering aimlessly around in chat rooms and numerous social media outlets, in search of brains to eat and absorb useful knowledge from, she finally planted her first headstone on a small website called Ex-Christian.net. Since that fateful day two years ago, she has written many small essays about atheism, tragedies in the world, and the effects of religious belief in everyday world events. She has also given her general opinion on her favorite horror movies.
She is currently writing two novels. One that will be released in the late Summer of 2014 is entitled Sainted. A work of historical fiction set in 14th century Serbia that follows a pious prince whose decisions about his eternal soul end up changing the entire face of his country for centuries to follow. In time for Easter 2014, her short work called Christ’s Rebellion will be released as an e-book. This novel is part of the Nanowrimo.org project, and will follow the struggles Judas Iscariot faced when realizing Jesus had struck a deal with Lucifer in order to push Christianity out of the shadow of the ruling Pharisees’ dominion over religious interpretation.
She lives in the United States, where she blogs at http://rottingthoughts.wordpress.com, as well as:
http://www.ex-christian.net/blog/170-rotting-thoughts/.
You can also view some of her art works at http://ashcraftgirl.deviantart.com.
And she has an online store at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RottedThoughts

The Best Larping Around: Religious Services

Let's talk about a past time I thoroughly enjoy now and then.



LARP.



For those unfamiliar, LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Play. Essentially, a bunch of similarly minded folks get together and collaborate to have fun pretending scenes out of their favorite movies, books, comics, etc. This is strictly pretending, of course, but with rules involved. The basic goal of LARPing (yes, you can make the acronym a verb, how cool!) is to create a desired fantasy environment… Continue

Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy

Posted on November 5, 2014 at 3:30pm 11 Comments

We have all been there and done it. Sitting on a couch, consoling a friend over a terrible mistake that has been made, and used our own personal flaws as a buffer before giving advice on what to do about the mess at hand. This is self deprecation, and while a very useful tool while navigating social situations, there is a fine line between using it as a tool, and using it as a facetious psychological mind fuck.



Usually, self deprecation is a general statement of flaws, like,"Well,…
