well a lot of it is that I get bashed or cut off for telling the truth too.  I do just accommodate a lot of the time, especially in person - but I tend to be uncomfortable with bullshit.

And I'm sick too, with runaway allergies that are so bad I avoid going out.  I have been quite unsociable for years because of being sick. 

So you see how we might have some things in common ...

Ted, I just spent the last half hour or so reading your posts. I especially liked the one about how to replace the "community" feeling of a church when there is no church. I am currently attending a Unitarian Church which has a "humanist" group but I would be happier if there were no "church" language...ditch the words sermon, worship, etc. I live alone and attend the Unitarian Church because it's the closest group I have found meeting face-to-face with people around my age (I am 68) who are "out" as atheists/humanists. Your post on the subject from 2012 was spot on and you put into words what I have been thinking but had not yet put words around. I'm trying to decide whether to try to start a "Sunday Assembly" or similar here in Arlington, TX (right in the heart of Red country...definitely in the minority). Peoples jaws drop when people in a conversation I might be in assume that everybody in the conversation is a Christian. When I say, "Well, actually, that doesn't work for me because I am a non-believer" or whatever, they are gobsmacked. I'm waiting for the day when they won't be because there will be enough of us "out" so it's not that unusual. I hope you have a good evening, and keep writing. You are a very talented writer, Steph S. said previously. I think you're touching more people than you have any idea about.

Thank you Ted for helping me feel better and replying to my discussion. What you wrote would make a great blog by the way. You are very good at writing.
