Doh... This is where we discuss religion and spirituality. The good the bad and the ugly.

You only want the good? Then why not start a thread about all the good.

Become a defender of your faith and beliefs.

add it to

daddy trauma
mommy trauma

in fact, stop there and cure those two first. Those numbers of abusers are far worse than any religions. then focus on governments like dictators, communist, and socialist.

religion is distant third, fourth, or even fifth.

I would say as much as anti-religious socialism does.

That is not why people say you are hateful. I have read your posts and you are a very hateful person. Your religion tolerates and encourages that much, while the rest of us see the entire picture and stay away from people and churches like you and yours.

Really? Am I the one that started a thread to talk about how religions are traumatizing people? Or am I the one calling anyone "hateful"? Look in the mirror.

Honestly.....take a hard look at the atmosphere around here. It's not the religious folk that are in attack mode and are insulting everyone.

Does it ever get tiring, always playing the victim? I've seen far more damning and condemnation com from the religious side, than the non-religious side.

You tell me. You're the one on a religious message board playing the victim card. Does it get tiring?

I'm no victim though, so I'm not sure what you're on about. Please, illustrate where I've attempted to play the victim, I'll wait.

As a matter of fact, I don't see the attacks that you claim to see, I see people with differing opinions, but that's life. I don't take differing opinions as a personal attack.
