"The JW's in my area seem to have a "no-discussions" policy in regard to atheists which was adopted some time during the mid-1990's. Prior to that, they were willing to come into my home and discuss religion and the Bible with me.…"

Gwaithmir replied to Garaidh Mac an tSaoir's discussion Ezekiel 23:20 – Bible Porn? in the group Secular Sexuality
"When I was in Catholic school I had to read a bowdlerized version of the bible. A lot of stuff like Ezekiel 23:20 was excised. For example, the account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was included, but the ending in which Lot commits…"

Gwaithmir replied to Atheist Andrea's discussion Are you open about being an atheist or are you in the closet?
"I decided I was an atheist in 1982, following a decade of comparative religious study. My epiphany came upon reading an article in THE AMERICAN ATHEIST titled The Agnostic's Dilemma. I was only partially in the closet about being an atheist as…"

"I never yelled anything in bed. I just made lustful grunting noises, regardless of what woman I was with. The same goes for most of the women in my life. My last girlfriend, at the moment of climax, used to whisper, "Yes, Daddy! Make me…"

Gwaithmir replied to Loren Miller's discussion Five Stupid Things About Fundamentalist Christianity - Steve Shives in the group Hang With Friends
