I left Christianity in the middle of the first half of the 1960's, before Christianity's massive attack on society. Well, fundamentalist Christianity's attack on society

What massive attack on society?

Oh, kid, you have absolutely no idea.

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?
