Christianity is evil. Get it OUT.

(Cont’d from previous post) My cheeks burn and my heart pounds with rage.  I seriously just spent the last 15 minutes screaming, “F*** YOU God!!  F*** YOU!!”  Words I never, ever thought I would say. He didn’t hear me.  There isn’t a he or a she or an it that exists to have heard me.  But I heard myself.  The me that believed for so many years.  The me that was emotionally and psychologically abused and […]

A missionary friend of mine shared on Facebook some of her frustrations yesterday.  “I feel like I’m not doing enough, because I’m just home with the kids while my husband works in the ministry,” she wrote.  “But then my little girl [age 3.5 years] took out her Bible and asked me again why they killed Jesus.” Okay, had to stop there for a sec.  What horrible, horrible imagery for a THREE year old.  OMG thats […]

Catholic Clergy Abuse of Children.

A movie released this past November.  96% movie critics’ rating.  Well done Racheal McAdams.  Very well done Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton.  But the worst part about this movie was also its best — based on real facts of a real story.  Here’s Rotten Tomatoes’ summary: “SPOTLIGHT tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would…cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions…abuse in the Catholic […]

A-theists can have Eternity too

The shortness of life and lack of eternal life, the ending of consciousness, the ending of relationship with my dearest loved ones, the inability to get all my questions answered and all the justice served in eternity —– these are all greatly painful realities that I’ve had to accept as an a-theist. But something dawned on me the other day.  If we have the right perspective, our time can be eternal too — almost. According […]

I talked to my mom today on the phone for several minutes.  This doesn’t happen that often, and whenever we end the conversation, I remember why. It usually isn’t just one thing, and today was no different. “I just loved the video you posted on Facebook of Purple* [our 6 month old baby girl] laughing!  She sure is filling out though.  Quite chubby! It’ll be okay, as she gets older she’ll thin out,” my mother […]

Mystery Revealed: God’s Voice

I know I’ve mentioned many times that Christians claim ownership over circumstances that I’ve now discovered to be widely universal, but yet another dawned on me today. There are many terms for this experience, :… Prayer Time.  God time. Prayer Closet.  Quiet time. Me time.  Alone time. Meditation.  Prayer. Chanting. Centering. Soaking. Self-hypnosis. Yoga. Retreat. Solace. Solitude.  (Aaaaand probably infinitely more that I haven’t experienced myself.) …but the result is the same (sorry Christians, you […]

Religion -> Marriage, and Marriage = Dysfunction

“Parenting is effing difficult. Marriage is effing difficult. If you survived either today, you are an effing saint. If you survived both today? You are an effing goddess.” My post today in a closed facebook group to which I belong came from a deep place of frustration.  Monogamous motherhood is impossible.  We often barely scoot by because pleasing one’s children in emotionally healthy and loving ways while maintaining one’s marriage in emotionally healthy and loving […]

Human experience and/vs. memory.

My life philosophy now, “live in the moment,” is pretty much the only one that makes sense of a life typically only lasting 80 years and much shorter for the unlucky. But I’ve always had this lingering dissonance with that philosophy: Memory. What is the point of an experience if there is no memory of it later?  If I had no memory of my life before this point, what would my life be?  I wouldn’t […]

The final Nail.

I’ve moved a lot, travelled a lot, visited many many places inside the USA and several countries overseas.  But every. single. place I’ve lived was due to my devotion to the cause of Christ.  I never set down roots, even if temporarily, anywhere that I didn’t believe I was called to, that I didn’t believe I could further the Kingdom of God, that I didn’t believe I could live as a missionary. Since I was a […]

Pentecostalism = Paganism

Something just occurred to me: Christians claim contradictory things: (1) No miracles are necessary to prove that their god is the one true god because “faith,” yet (2) they use miracles as signs to justify that faith. So, if a miracle occurred inside the faith, then *boom,* all of the thousands of claims of their doctrines are true.  But if a miracle occurred outside their faith (in other religions, such as paganism), then they would use Satan […]
