It's time for me to leave this community after all these years. The level of vitriol has reached an intolerable level. I recognize my role in adding to the intolerance by my disparaging and disrespectable comments about Xtianity and Xtians over the past years. I still hold those views due to the genocide visited upon the native side of my family, yet regret the pain I caused believers.
I'll keep this account viable throughout today in order to read and respond to any comments.
GC I Must have missed or forgotten your comments on Christianity. Because I normally notice that. If you spoke to the genocide what the heck i do but listen as that is your truth. I think you and yours were victims of power mongers using Christ’s name in ways he never intended. Yet there it was, and there it is. I haven’t seen a Church apologize yet (if you have, let me know). If I could make meaningful apology for that I would.
I appreciate what you have said about bringing pain to believers of today.
I enjoy your contribution which lately has been rare. You bring another way of thinking, another way of being, you are not foolish and not afraid. This forum needs diversity for me to stay interested.
I hope this is not the last we see of you.
C’mon man, I just took out a subscription!
Dang hit quote when I meant to edit. Nevermind, I’ll just say it twice, but better the second time.
