"Knowing how you feel today. My wife started again today with her "you don't know what you've done to me" routine. As if my deconversion was aimed at her personally. Then the whopper, "If you don't believe, fine, but…"

Lesa replied to dizzyduckie's discussion 'Which thoughts are mine and which are the fault of indoctrination?'
"They aren't what you want to be thinking, so I don't think those thoughts are from you; I think they're the result of many years of indoctrination.  (imho)From early on you were told those aren't your own thoughts in your…"

Lesa commented on Leslie Ann's blog post 'Am I overreacting?'
"No, you didn't overreact.  I'd be so pissed, what a jerk.  He may have limited his search for Atheists just to be high and mighty.  I wouldn't be surprised if he sent this to others.  I hope he felt your glowering…"

Dennis Weaver replied to Lesa's discussion 'Hello'
