It's correct no one lives in a bubble and as I previously stated: "In a more broad sense, I do see it's path of destruction." and I proceeded to elaborate on the effects of superstitious belief on me and on those around me.

I believe my statement within context was: "the only acknowledgement I make of faith is that it is a farcical ruse. Much of humanity has come to suffuse this farce with some sort of trust, in lieu of mutual trust of humanity. I do not share this preoccupation. I have never been effected by it personally, and so it is irrelevant for me."

"Effected by it personally" refers to having never attributed any kind of power to faith the way many let themselves do. I said nothing about Christianity itself, nor will I jump onto anyone's band wagon, especially considering I never have. I give myself far more credit than something that doesn't exist.

I appreciated your story and encourage you to continue your activism. Smile
You need to fight in your own way -it's what you need to do. I have to fight the way I can.
I'm ok with both our separate strategies - if that is how one needs to see it. I might be at one's side... but I am on no one's side. Shy

HOLY SHIT!
As I'm writing this.... I just heard on the radio that Rodney King was just found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool. Ohmy

Well. Yea. Can't we all just get along?
Ok, its all good. I understand.

Well, that was quick.

I've been asked to teach July 8th.

I looked at the lesson, and I kid you not, it's about accepting others. It's about how the early church Jews weren't receptive to the addition of the Gentiles.

lol

Ironic.

Simply ironic.

Cozy.
Labels are the excuses for every combination of envy, jealousy, resentment, fear, hate... when what it really amounts to is division.
Them and us.
When it gets down to the collective them and us... everybody's fucked. Dodgy
