As a I do not intend to discriminate, it is my desire that as non believers we can support ourselves from being demonized ,ostrcized , downright treated as lost people. Too many insults ,here is a place we can listen & pour our disgust from religionism. I start. When I openly admitted to my friends that I could no longer go with them to the pew becoz I can no longer stand to be a hypocrite to myself, I almost lost all of them. Few transformed into my guiding light & call me everyday to proslytize me. I am sick of it. But I have a very special relationships with a lot of them. I cannot imagine to see all of them gone. The frienships for me is meaningful & I want to keep it away from religion. But on the other hand ,I feel insulted each time I hear God loves you. Okay Okay he loves me I have no problem with that . I am aggravated from time to time but I treasure the friendship part. I wonder how you guys get treated by the religious culture. And what is the best tool to keep the subject non combative & argumentative. Unloading zone ;open 24 hrs.
