"For someone who has "been in the insurance game" you seem to lack understanding on why healthcare has become an issue. First off you admit private insurance is expensive: "When they find out how much a private policy will cost them,…"

""So questioning things is an attack? Well, from the theist perspective, I see that. But, if I were to invoke Godwin's Law and make a comparison to Nazi soldiers just following orders, do I still lose? Oh. Right. Godwin's Law...Why is…"

""Shasta, how am I forgetting context when I explicitly said that I try to differentiate between religious statements derived from a lack of examination, and religious statements derived from suffering? If anything, this is a direct admission…"

"Shine, Your forgetting very huge factors at play, like context. What if the person who says "God works in mysterious ways" isn't looking for a debate? That person may not have wanted to have a theological debate, and you going out of…"

Shasta McNasty commented on Pinko Commie's blog post 'Declaring Religion Isn't Taboo But Responding Sure Is'
"Politics and religion seem to be taboo, not because people don't want think or don't want to be proven wrong, its because its seen as a personal attack. Saying "your ideas are wrong" is the same as saying "you're…"

Shasta McNasty commented on Pinko Commie's blog post 'Wishing for Heaven'
"Your still assuming. The cornerstone of your argument is that the only coping mechanism religious people have is the belief in an afterlife. You have no actual idea of what they do to deal with a loss, you just see their beliefs and make the…"

"@Johan: religion offers the same value and purpose as any other way of dealing with tragedy. @Shine: Ive understood all your posts, so don't be to hard on yourself. I just happen to strongly disagree. I honestly feel your being a bit biased.…"

"With politicians like this, who need clergy? Can't say this is a shock from coming from a southern politician. Sad thing is, the people who are outraged by this seem to be the minority,my guess is that the effect to him will be minimal. Guess i…"

"its all realitive. Just because you see something as delusional, doesnt mean someone cant find comfort from it. Even if that person were to lose all their faith later on in life. The solace and comfort they fell during the most painful experience is…"

"I fortunately haven't experienced the loss of a close loved one, or the pain that it brings, but to me It seems that the presence of death in anyone's life will always lead them to be more open to accepting faith or rejecting it. Whether…"

"Thanks for sharing your story Shasta. It's interesting to hear that you were aware of having doubts at such an early age. When I was little, I didn't like going to church either, but that had more to do with it being boring and encroaching…"

What did my parents do wrong?- or how to lose something you never had

So being this is my first blog post here, i've decided to talk about a pretty familiar subject, me. More specifically, my life and lack of faith in a deity. I was raised in a very christian family. My mother is a woman of great faith, and she tried to raise her 3 children the same way. I received the standard dose of christian rhetoric until the age 17, when i stopped attending.
