As regards the above querie: June has really only come in contact with two ministers in her day who made any impression on her. One was a woman.

June honestly feels that no one can wish that she, June, "accept Christ" at the same time that they are advocating for her to be less than who she is. It just doesn't make sense. June wonders about a religion such as Christianity that would on the one hand 'lovingly' advocate to embrace all in it's message, yet at the same time advocate for the suppression of anyone's voice. God's creating Eve wasn't intended as some 'secondary role' in his Divine Plan. Nope. He created Eve out of love; Adam, like the rest of us, weren't meant to live alone, in isolation. As such, God was wise enough to know that mankind needed relationship in order to know him. What better way, therefore, than to create opposing opposites in which to both confound mankind, yet at the same time, challenge him?

Women, like Eve, are hardly to be allocated to be 'secondary' creatures. Women, like Eve, have a voice. Men may not always understand or interpret that correctly, but perhaps they would do well to remember that it is the same voice that God created. --Unless, of course, God was into duality and opposition. Which would be a real shame. Which, in part, is what is upheld by a belief system that excludes the likes of June.

June just goddam loves the fact that her MALE minister friend is a feminist!

-With bumper stickers on his car, no less!

He is also someone who absolutely adores his wife. As an equal.

Imagine that. Poor Eve. She was surely born and created before her time.

-Yet born/created with the wisdom and passion to make God "complete."

As she does the rest of you men.

God bless women.

Thus sayeth 'the June.'

Take gentle animus care,

-June

That was beautiful...

May be I should attend a congregation lead by a atheist woman,
because you sure touch my soul.

Can I sit beside you and Mrs. Oak in the amen corner, if June preaches?

How can God dam someone and bless someone? Do you really believe God dams anyone? Or do we dam ourselves?

godspeed,

freedom

Dear freedom,

June must say that you have certainly asked her to take on one of the more 'challenging' questions posed thus far on "Ask June." However, in being the ever honest June she is, she will start of by giving you one of her 'working definitions' of love:

Love: When the likes of June can honestly say that she has a soft spot in her heart for the 'freedoms' and 'fundamentalists' on this forum (which she truly does) that, my friend, is a part of what is entailed in love.


Take gentle loving care,

-June

Did you see Stephen King while in Maine (and hopefully not hit him with your rental!)??

Thank you for your usual good cooperation.

Dear Mams,

June would be the first to admit that sleep is good for the soul. June's mind, body, (atheist soul) and overall 'just June' being transforms into a state of downright rancid crabbiness upon not having a sufficient amount of sleep. One could say, in fact, that June morphs into the epitome of sheer anthropomorphized evil when she has not gotten enough sleep. (For those who would question the seemingly harsh nature of June's self characterization, one need only consult with June's ex-husband for any validating reassurance.) As regards your questions:

1- June would love to visit Pennsylvania. When June thinks of Pennsylvania, the images that come to her mind are those of horse drawn buggies, Amish people, handmade patch work quilts, and rolling hills bathed in sunlight. She also gets the image of "The Deer Hunter" as well, although admittedly that would not be one of June's more pleasant conjurings. The greatest impetus for June to travel to Pennsylvania, however, would be to obtain a sort of quasi spiritual hang gliding type instruction. June was told a while back (by a certain member who has since taken flight from our esteemed forum) that she in fact, should jump, assuring June that she would experience a safe landing. -June's not so sure...Which brings June to your next querie:

2- While June is aware of the fact that we have (mutual) friend(s) who would no doubt tell you otherwise, instructing you to 'run for your life' and avoid posting like the plague, June has a somewhat different thought in that regard. June is more than aware of those who come, those who go, and those who come and go. During her therapist-wannabe training, June learned of one particular saying that the cognitive behavioralists working in addictions/substance abuse loved to say: That one definition of insanity is finding oneself doing or repeating the same rotten behaviors over and over again. -June is not so sure. June has a very different take: It would appear to June that when one finds themselves repeatedly returning to a forum like this, that perhaps that is something one would want to pay particular attention to. June would even go so far as to speculate that perhaps there is that which remains unresolved in a member, such that they return, (time and again) despite their feelings otherwise, and wondering why. June would thus wonder whether or not that whole dynamic doesn't speak to a certain 'something' such that it is actually providing an opportunity to the conflicted member who engages in it. In short: June has the funny feeling there is a reason that you come and go. Only to return. Hey, you may well have some expertise in the area of hang gliding that you are either unaware of, minimize, or deny in your Mam's self. -But only you would know.

3- Truth be told, our rented mini van was cruising along at such an excellerated speed that the world all around was something of a blurr. -That is, until the state trooper nabbed the Troop that was driving. God and the state of Maine deemed the situation worthy of divine mercy, thereby issuing the lad a 'warning' as opposed to a ticket, to which those of us in the van uttered a collective atheist "amen" and proceeded on our way. In short, even on the highway, Troop gets infracted by God and the Maine State Police. (Some people just never learn...) However, at speeds that nearly defied the sound barrier, it was difficult for June, sitting in the co-pilot seat, to catch any Stephen King sightings. June can say this much, however: Upon our arrival at the Inn, engulfed in fog and insipid cold drizzle and rain, such that it exuded an utterly haunting and eerie nature, the atheists all concurred: Yes, it was easy to understand how and why Stephen King could find the inspiration to write what he does. However, unless June unknowingly boogied with Stephen that fateful night of drunkenness at Woodies 'Pub,' whereby he would have been disguised or even mistaken for a local yocal hunter, June can only say that she was not graced with a Stephen King sighting. She did hear a number of screams coming from the surrounding forest late at night, amid the howling of the raging winds, however...

Take gentle ever returning care,

-June

Dear Bacon Lover,

June would direct you to an official correspondence dated 9/4/09, in which the following was stated:

"And I tell you because I can't help but suspect: He doesn't even know it!"

Documents on file can be requested in writing should you need a copy. Note that in some instances a processing fee of $.25 per 'DM retrieval request' may apply. Mastercard and Visa accepted.


Take gentle you-know-what-June's-saying care,

-June
