Quote from: Hydra009 on July 25, 2020, 07:57:16 PMWas a close friend or family member a Christian and mean to you? :PI'm pretty surprised by how much current shouting matches are affected by past negative experiences. I confess that I would otherwise have a favorable view of vegans and poth...marijuana enthusiasts.
Quote from: Sal1981 on July 26, 2020, 06:41:47 AMThe intro with Mr. Cloud & Mr. Sun is a small tale about intentions. Where the first approach, blowing wind at the man with the overcoat, gets the man to huddle up and protect himself. While Mr. Sun's approach, being a sun, is using "niceties" to get the man to throw his overcoat - or it's just two figures making a bet.
Quote from: Mike Cl on July 25, 2020, 09:57:11 PMNope--the only close family member that is christian is my little brother. He has not done anything to personally harm me--but he is a trumpie--that's harm enough. Personally, I've had many, many good contacts and interactions with christians. I base my disdain on the christian world due to it's dark history and utter dishonesty of it's leadership.
Quote from: drunkenshoe on July 26, 2020, 02:56:50 PMYou know what, weirdly enough I never had a family member at the opposite side of the political spectrum. I always get curious when people talk about this. But then thinking now, I don't know any religious people either. One that comes to mind (she is a muslim) doesn't follow the traditional aspects of the religion.

Quote from: Mike Cl on July 26, 2020, 04:55:46 PMMy mother was not a dictator; one always knew what she thought about things--personal and political--but she never rejected one for it, or insist one accept her thoughts. She would not associate with you if she thought one was basically dishonest or mean spirited. But if she were alive and knew what the politics of my little brother is, she would tell him in no uncertain terms he would no longer be welcome in her home.
