Well, I've cruised through their forum a number of times - haven't bothered joining or posting. I guess there was just an atmosphere there that didn't particularly appeal to me for some reason - one that I don't feel over here in TAM land - which is why I keep coming back here.

No one can hardly be surprised a bunch of holier-than-thou Christians don't want to listen to reasoning or another point of view.

They can't handle it.

Isn't better to just let these people just bask in their "small world."?
Oh my, I don't want to sound angry over it. I hope I am not coming off that way, we had a hearty laugh about it -when my husband came home that day... The way I express myself always sounds intense I guess.

I am happy... really, on top of the world. ... but yeah, the issue kinda gets under my skin from time to time....probably because I still go to church, most of my friends ARE Christians....probably my biggest hurts in life have been by the hands of this type, shaming me for my feeling different, standing over in judgement -cause I wasn't a cardboard copy of them. WHen it happens, It still takes me by surprise, am I too stupid to learn...... I guess I hate to be "closed down" based on prejudice of religion. I try never to do that to others , so when it happens to me, yeah, it bugs me.

NO worry Scanner, I am happy ! Takes a crapload more than this to get me down.

I too call myself a Christian. But a lot of things made me question my faith. Most of those things that bothered me was those people that judge you. That and things that are made up by agenda driven people that claim to know the bible. If there is a god like I believe, then I think a lot of Christians are going to be shocked where they are going when they die. I too have found your posts very useful. From what I can tell you probably live your life better then a lot of so called Christians. Many of them probably do more sinning then you. Thanks for your posts SA.

Wow, appreciate your words CrazyGuy... I feel there is alot of people like yourself sitting in the church pew ...has questions & feels as you do about the judging you see & feel around you. You are so not alone by any means - your type are the kind I do love to befriend.

.... and I enjoy your posts too LadyFrog. I think you sound alot like me, a little of our stories anyway. SimplySatan is exactly how I was perceived that fine morning. Ha ha

Too many "thought crimes" on that forum for me, I doubt I will ever venture there again... I've tried alot of forums in my time, most don't have too much to sink your teeth into--too much joking or horsing around for my tastes or too loose of living by far.... then we have the other side... TOO PIOUS & restricted....TAM , by far, allows you to be who you are , speak how you feel and for the most part , can handle others views like a melting pot.... while not being shunned for our differences . I have a great appreciation for that type of tolerance.

SA

Sometimes I think my comments rub people the wrong way. I have a clear and simple way at looking at most things and I post what I think. Sometimes I put things in a crude way, that's just me. As a Christian I can tell you that Jesus himself went to the "sinners" prostitutes ect to save them. Buy them kicking you off there board they are doing exactly the opposite of what Jesus would have done.

I myself have good friends from all walks of life, rich to poor. Some did hard time. I try not to judge, that's not my job. I simply hang around people that give me respect and I respect them back. Respect does not mean I myself approve of there actions though. People can disagree but still be civilized.

Always remember this.

It's the "Christians" that scream from the mountain top at every opportunity how "righteous" they are that are the worst of the worst.

The ones that live it, but don't talk it are the true believers.

It's that.... "But when you give ....don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing" (Matt 6:3)... and ...."Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips".... (Prov 27:2)

I am wondering if you are Sinister ...Sinnister !?

Your way does not offend me at all, I am very similar to you, and I would much rather hang with the sinners, as long as they are "safe' that is, mental sins do not bother me, I wouldn't want to hang with anyone who was physically dangerous though, stalkerish, or might rob or hurt my family in any way.

We are like this also, though no friends who has done hard time.

In my youth , I got to see a taste of how the other half lives though... My mother married a severe alcoholic (crazy as this sounds , she never drank)... moved to another state...big city, very very ROUGH life... they used to take in prostitutes off the street , homeless men, her husband had a heart of pure GOLD for the destitude, he loved to cook for people too when he wasn't too drunk... the stories she has shared with me reduce me to tears, I've written a # of them down.... I lived with them for a month when I was 15. IN that month, they did not take anyone in. My safety was the main thing.

I do not have a heart like that. I would fear for my own life. Once a drunken neighbor took a sickle to my mother, he jumped in front of her, saving her life. I met the prostitue neighbor who killed her 1st husband because of abuse, she served time.

I have had arguments with Christians who would tell me that my step father will not be in heaven because he was an Alcoholic...I wanted to tare into them.. ...He nursed this one homeless man back to health after being attacked by sea gulls getting chicken out of a dumspter, open sores on his arms from this...(I know how bad this sounds !!)...

He loved people from the heart, even though he was messed up himself, he was not looking for any gain. He had great compassion, he has been ripped off, beat up and still he welcomed the poorest society has. I guess one could say he was STUPID, I don't know, but he survived it all....so did my mother. Once they even had a murderer living with them! Yikes !

In my lifetime, I have never met a man who had that depth of care to open his own home.... He LIVED the words of Jesus... most only talk it. Every time I hear this song, I think of my step father... He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother ....and tear up. I know why I am moved like that...it was the love he had for those that society would throw away or spit at.

I try not to judge either. But it does creep in -depending, I think back to what I witnessed in my youth..... I look at the heart more than anything else, never how rich or poor someone is.

But I do not have a heart like my step father...that was above & beyond the norm.

LadyFrogFlyAway said: think we have much in common also..if I'm correct we've been married about the same length of time, twenty years?...and we both had an *awakening* in regards to our marriages...yours sexual and mine emotional.

Speaking of too much horsing around and judging, please don't go to the "thong" thread in the ladies lounge. Guilty
We've been married 22 yrs (together for 30 total- met him when I was 15). Yes, both of us.... have been "awakened"....to the betterment of our marrriages.

Mine was very sexual , like a Niagra Falls effect... I feel alot of this was due to being repressed for most of my marraige .... not sure how else to make sense of it ....it was also very emotional for me .... as I was taking my good husband for granted for many years ... just busy with many things....he was always there, always accessible, always loving, but I had my mind going in many directions.

I too rub some people the wrong way, I think. I tend to be a bit dogmatic (something I have to watch) and I'm blunt and have a very warped sense of humor. Something others don't find funny at all will set me off.
I had someone the other day say to me that I don't act my age, to which I replied, "Why should I? I don't even want to BE my age!" Little kids are totally awesome...so spontaneous, creative and guileless.
Maturity...now what fun is there in that?
I understand the blunt temptation ....I have toned it down some from my youth.... gained some grace in this area...... one of my best friends told me I used to intimidate her... I had no idea! When I am being truly myself , letting go in communication...... I have gotten a number of looks like this... almost always in a GOOD way though..... ...... ... Usually opens conversations WIDE OPEN and we have a good time with it. So yeah, it is FUN to be and FEEL young at heart !! . If I had to give an example of my personality...it is something like PINK...

.....at least how she is in her interviews.... I like to laugh hard, make fun of stuff... pretty open about my own demons... I can be humble, say I suck at stuff, debate, downright uncooth at times...and enjoy every minute of it ....love a little feisty banter! But then I can be sweet too, and found to be very respectful... I guess I wear many hats...and I enjoy them all.

We need to be who we are ....Or what is it worth at the end of the day! Right ?

SA you had to mention PINK.

Love her attitude and confidence. She does not hide her problems and at the same time is not ashamed of who she is. Her performance at the Grammy's was incredible. Glitter In The Air (GRAMMYs on CBS) by P!nk She is somewhat flat chested but she wore that skimpy outfit that does not leave much to the imagination. She certainly has enough money to get a boob job but she did not get one. It is so refreshing to see a celebrity willing to be real and not have to go under the knife and show that you can be happy with yourself. On top of that she actually has talent and nerve to perform like she did in the air.

In my line of work many of my customers tend to be people that have lots of money. I often go to an area in a major city that is nothing but multi million dollar condos. I normally park my service van at a park that is close. There are a bunch of homeless people with no place to go that stay at this park. So yeah, I run into all type of people. One of my coworkers is one of those people that does not have much of anything. Despite this he would take the shirt off his own back to help you out. He is older then me and lived a rough life. When he was young he did a bunch of stupid things. Got caught running drugs. Did years in both state and federal prisons. But he did his time and has been one of those friends that stick by you when the crap hits the fan. He always jokes with me that if I commit a crime make sure it is a federal offense. Fed time is much more easy then state time. Anyway he is a really nice older guy today with a strange sense of humor. In matter of fact when I upgraded my service van I donated my old van to him because he had no car at all. He has been running my old van for years now.

It's because SA is so sweet & awesome, that it is funny thinking she got kicked off of somewhere.

All I can say is that when we do get to heaven, I don't really think that we're going to see a GOP elephant banner, or for that matter, a Democratic donkey one anywhere remotely around. After all, heaven will definitely not be monopolized by any one political party or religious faction!
