  • The “globalist” reference only illustrates just how brainwashed you truely are. What next, the “illuminati?” Maye q’anon?

  • I don’t believe the Christian church is the problem, I think Christian “literalists” are the problem. I think a lot of Progressive Christians see the bible as a book of parables, innuendo, and hope and inspiration, but do not see God as an invisible, all powerful, all knowing, active figure, but rather a concept meant to inspire. I don’t think…[Read more]

  • Even though I do not believe inn the creator God, I do follow, on social media, several Progressive Christian churches who have been doing online “virtual” services for a few years.

  • I live in a “Seniors” Community. Most of the residents are female in their 70’s upward, and Christian, which is fine with me, a Secular Buddhist, even though I have little tolerance for expressions of that […]

    • Don’t take this woman as an example of what most believers are like. I have my own problems with the Christian Church as it is exists in the United States. I think I would have been tempted to move back and say “well, in those case, let me get far away from you that you don’t have a chance to infect ME”. The thing is the mask is not for her protection, it is so that if she happens to have it, and with that attitude the chances are good because it likely means she has been mixing without caution, but to protect YOU from her.

      That is called selfishness, or just plain carelessness. No more safe but just for a different reason. I have been derided over on well you know where, because i said that if these people want to take the risk, fine…but don’t come near me…I don’t wish to take a risk whether it be for their “freedom” or their “faith” or any other reason.

      Their freedom is not more important to me than my life….and freedom means nothing to me if I am dead.

      • I don’t believe the Christian church is the problem, I think Christian “literalists” are the problem. I think a lot of Progressive Christians see the bible as a book of parables, innuendo, and hope and inspiration, but do not see God as an invisible, all powerful, all knowing, active figure, but rather a concept meant to inspire. I don’t think most Progreesive Christians actually believe in a “heaven” above that good souls go to, or a burning hell below that bad souls go to but rather as representations. I think most Progressive Christians are rational enough not to take Noah and the Ark, Jonah and the Whale, or even Adam and Eve in a literal way.

        • My church that I was active in before I came to New Orleans from Tennessee, definitely fit into the category you mention. The pastor did, in fact, believe in God, but not the punishing, demanding God that these literalists do. He believed that God was a spirit that encouraged and coached us to do better, and be better.

          He had as little patience with the “fire and brimstone and do everything the way I say it is supposed done, attitude of the evangelist group…especially the televangelist version, as you are I do.

    • Oh, and the reason that I say don’t take her as a representative of ALL Christians, because at least one that I know about here in New Orleans is having very careful (as in sit on different pews) public services, but still doing a virtual service for those that are afraid to come to the public one.

      Also, the Episcopal Cathradral ini Washington State was interviewed and said they would NOT be rushing to open up to public services. They would continue for some weeks, maybe even months to have the virtual services instead till they deemed it safe. The last thing he said was that the worst thing he could think of is somebody getting sick and dying because they came to a church service.

      So SOME religious folk do have some sense about this thing and understand the danger.

      • Even though I do not believe inn the creator God, I do follow, on social media, several Progressive Christian churches who have been doing online “virtual” services for a few years.

        • Yep, I have as well. Some very interesting ones. I put in a request, for what it means if it is just me, to one to continue to put out the virtual services. This is one that I have gone to in the past physically. They are planning to continue virtual services, specifically for those who are sick, or afraid under the circumstances.

          And the Episcopal Cathadral somewhere in Washington said that they were not going to open for public services for some time. They were not going to do so till it was clear that it was safe and right now, they were not in any rush because they were doing just as well virtually.

  • I ssee a lot of stories about violence breaking out over the issue of mask wearing, and a lot of lemming remarks about the requirement to wear mask being an infringement on freedom.

    Bullhockey. Wearing a mask […]

  • Ignore comments like the reference to “hugging” and realize that is just more of the childish and infantile trolling that Trump supporters think is so cutesy and are so fond of, thinking it is in some way an “owning” of Liberals.

  • We Already know that Trump, and the people supporting him do not care anything about anyone else. It’s all about them. EVERYTHING is about them.

    How does someone get to be as brainwashed as you. Here it is 20 years since that movie came out and you still attached to that character. Unable to free yourself. You don’t even understand the movie you’ve been worshiping for so long.

  • As long as you’ve been fetching that movie you still have no idea what it is all about. You don’t have enough functioning brain cells to comprehend.

  • Sounds like an admission that religion, at least the Talibangelist cult supporting Trump, are businesses, depending on revenue to keep private jets fueled and multi-million dollar mansions stocked with fine foods […]

    • Not wearing a mask is a lack of concern for one’s human neighbors, pure and simple, we both know that. What a person is saying when they say their “freedom” requires them the right to not wear a mask, is that their freedom is more important that other people’s livesl

      However, some people are that callous and we just have to try and avoid them at all costs. As for the religion and the “essential ness” of it, belief is something that isn’t lost because of safety issues. Attendance in huge crowds does not a religion make. It is funny to me how some people confuse the two. Religion, esp the ones you speak of have gone from being abused, and/or to being, rich, cruel land spoiled.

      And yes, I agree, many if not most of them should pay taxes on their vast wealth.

  • bonpu is a Buddhist term for “ordinary person.”

    Simple enough concept. I am just a person.

    Even though I realize that being a white American male puts me in the, probably top 10% in the world in privilege […]

    • I applaud your willingness to see yourself as “nothing special”…as just an ordinary person. Not everybody seems to hold that opinion of themselves.
