Poll: Body Autonomy & Self Termination
Yes, anyone should have the right to choose to die.
No, no one should have the right to choose to die.
Yes, but only people who are terminal should have the right to die as they choose.
I don't care one way or another.

I also am a proponent of answer what questions you want, ignore the rest, if you so choose. That does not mean you have to refrain from posting in the thread. Just so you know Deidre32. Your presence is welcome.

As a side note, I did not take Chas' comment as an aggressive post either. Maybe lets start over. Smile

I've never said that I thought anyone was trying to 'beat me down.' Those words are not mine. lol But, yes...start over. Cool

Be true to yourself. Heart

I know, they were that hot Grilyman's but I borrowed them to make the point. Glad you're back. Wink

No, I don't think that at all. At the same time, I'm really not here to defend my faith or beliefs, honestly. Or convince anyone else. I've made some e-friends here along the way, and that's perhaps why I still come here and felt like sharing that I've returned.

I don't think Chas meant for you to have to defend your faith.

He probably just wonders, as I do too, what could convince an atheist to return to Christianity.

But of course you don't have to talk about it if you don't want to. It's none of our business, just curiosity.

Okay, I see. Shy Well, I had let go of all tenets of belief...and grew indifferent towards the ideas of Christianity, of Jesus, prayer, etc. For the past two years, I explored other religions, but always 'returned' to concluding that atheism was a logical stance. Last year, I had an experience of faith...something that in my eyes, could only be explained as divine intervention. It changed my thinking rather instantly. That is why I returned. I feel differently about faith, and Christianity, than I did when I abandoned it a few years ago. That's as best as I can explain it, now. Thanks for asking.

Be true to yourself. Heart
