Thanks for calling me kid. You may not have meant it as a compliment, but I will take it anyway. I don't even mind being called immature. Let me be immature till the day I die, I don't care. I am foreveryoung, and I will be a "kid" till the day I die, and I MEAN THAT.
Lmao. I understand what you are talking about and it irritates the hell out of me too. That still happens today. That is why I asked what I did. I still get accosted today, and it always makes me feel uncomfortable. Believe it or not, in real life, I am more comfortable around non fundies. I mean the cultural fundies, not the ones defined by mere belief. I am a fundie by belief alone. I DO NOT act like the most of them do culturally. I can't stand that proselytizing bullcrap they put people through. I totally sympathize with you. Yes, they tear families apart. I share my beliefs online and online alone. People don't have to read what you say if they don't want to. People have no choice in real life. BTW, I am probably older that you what you assume me to be but , I am younger than the age you have revealed...61.
I am sequestered from the rest of the cultural fundamentalists because I am not at all like them culturally. I am actually just plain secular culturally. I am not into this "don't do this", "don't listen or watch that", or "you should be doing more of this, don't you love God?". It is a huge guilt trip these guys lay on you and it ends up where a certain few get to have power over the others. No one wants to appear like they aren't true Christians. This is why the criticism I get over my behavior slides right off me like it does a ducks back. Being overly worried about how your behavior appears to others is a big drain and fucks with your brain. It changes you....for the worse in my opinion. To put is succinctly, I am very uncomfortable around the openly "christian by behavior" crowd. It makes me extremely paranoid to be around them. Does that answer your question?
