About Me:
I am a piano instructor, and accompanist for a Lutheran Church LOL
I absolutely love to cook and prepare delicious meals with wine. I try to study piano at least 3 hours a day and I run my own private teaching studio. Have 16 students currently and they mean the world to me. I adore cats. I have always thought if I could choose to be a non human I would choose to be a cat. Get to stalk prey at night , go home to cuddle with a super warm and affectionate woman who will always pet me and feed me and clean up after me haha and I can still play the piano with my little paws ;P
Age
19-24
Why are you here?
Maybe to release some of my pent up frustration with Religious ignorance? I have to sit through a weekly morning Sermon and listen to the nonsense the Pastor teaches. Then I go home to listen to the Atheist Experience so I can wash my mind of the vile and harmful doctrines and get a dose of rationality =)
The religion you left
Was never a part of one

"What would Jesus Do?"

Posted on August 7, 2011 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

Thought someone might appreciate my story :)  

 

I work part time at Taco Bell.  So today, I was running drive thru and it wasn't too busy ... A Customer Service Issue arose and the girl on the line making food said 'What would Jesus doooo" ... I got the feeling she was being sarcastic so I said 'Jesus Is dead , so he doesn't have an opinion'.  Well , the girl who initially asked the question replied 'No , Jesus is a Zommbbbiiieee' (LOL!!)  

 

Then this other girl…

Hi everyone!  I just sat through a beautiful sermon today , and guess what!?  I understand it all now!  I understand the trinity!  

How do I understand it now, you may ask?  Well check out below!  This is the Athanasian Creed that is spoken by some churches ONCE a year , on Trinity Sunday!  It's remarkably clear and very , very , very understandable! I am so glad I was able to make sense of it all this morning ... the following is the Creed , in it's entirety , which was spoken aloud…

I think Angelo is here for the attention and to generate controversy lol His persistance is not natural in fundies.

Oh and, yes, Morgan will be there!

Oops! Here's the link: http://www.thinkatheist.com/events/think-atheist-baltimore-meet-up-i

From now on, you'll be able to see all of these meet-ups under the "Events" tab at the top :) Plus, they should be displayed towards the bottom on the right column on the home page.

So uh... you each piano, huh? What's the going rate for that?

At 12:01am on January 4, 2012, Cara Coleen said…

It's from 7-9, so you can show up a bit late. I bet we'll run over anyway, depending on how long the bookstore stays open! If worse comes to worse, we'll head to a bar to grab drinks after :)

That's what I was thinking!!! This is an atheist site after all lol

Hey Dustin thanks, that's a feature of this site to put halos on pics lol how ironic :P

Yeah, I think it works a lot better when you're young enough (and surrounded by enough people) to be convinced that the nothing happening is actually something. lol - unfortunately for the religious people of the world (and fortunately for you), you were alone and able to bask in the silence and anticlimax of conversion. ;)

 

It's nice to meet you. :) And everyone's story matters. I think it's cool you gave it a shot. No one can accuse you of not trying, huh? :)

Hey, are you by any chance a accompanist for the Lutheran church "Lord of Life" or LOL? in friendswood? I go to that church sometimes??

I love your talent at pushing people's buttons! It is quite amusing. It doesn't do much for popularity tho does it! LOL Sometimes people need a good slap on the face to see reality. Continue on!
