"It's Psych 101: If you try to force someone to do (or not do) something, you engender what's called "resistance." So, the more we push, expect more pushback."

Grrr

Why must the fact that religion is not allowed in our school system the cause of some fucking asshole going into a school and killing fucking almost 30 people (20 children)? I am so FUCKING tired of hearing stupid shit like this. Religion does not make a person good. When is everyone going to fucking wake up, stop being a fucking sheep and think for themselves and start realizing that we make ourselves good, not what we believe in.---Thank you for listening. :)See More

Why are you here?
I am here because I am tired of all the other places I go, every time I turn around, I am seeing some bullshit of why I should believe in god. Don't take the lord's name in vain or whatever. I mean really, people depend way too much on something they truly know NOTHING about.

I left years ago, because something traumatic happened to me, something that should never happen at all, let alone a child and what kind of fucking god allows that type of shit to happen?

Denise, I stole the following words from your comment on my page: "...religion, or the lack there of, has nothing to do with some nutcase and killing children."

You added the kind of emphasis I used to add when I was in the Navy, but more of it. So much more emphasis that, for me, it masked your intent.

As I write these words, I am again enjoying my memory of resolving, when I left the Navy, to learn to again talk like a civilian. I took a while to do it.

Some trauma resulted in my tossing my parents and their religion out of my life. When I send this, I'll go back to my page and see if I want to edit it.

Be kind to y'self.
