Michelle replied to Jennifer Michelle Barretto's discussion It's nice to know you're not alone. :)
"Welcome. You are not alone. I'm here to listen. Rant, pose questions, whatever. I'd enjoy hearing more from you. What brought you to India? If you don't mind."

"Adrian, That was a beautiful introduction, and I too am curious, like Amber Kost, if you are actually English or American? I look forward to your contributions, especially from a Swiss perspective. I'm curious about how atheists are getting…"

Michelle replied to c's discussion What do you say?
"That's the best. What are they going to say? That it is reliable? Oh, right. They'll probably come back with such nonsense that, "it's God's will". LMAO"

Michelle replied to c's discussion What do you say?
"If they are praying for me because of an illness or an unfortunate event, I say "thank you". If someone told me that they were praying for me, so I don't go to Hell.....then, I'd probably tell them to go to Hell! LOL :)"

William Hutton replied to Michelle's discussion Frustrated With Explaining Myself to the Delusional: "Praying for You".
"I think you're correct in the assumption that the prayers offered to you and your child were honestly kind, if not altogether misguided attempts at solace. At the same time I believe you were justified in graciously accepting their offering…"
