    Aw man, now I have to un-like you!

    I think what most of us believe in is tolerance, and not being judgmental. I'm fairly sure that none of us would have any issues with anyone that can respect us for who we are, warts and all.

    I do believe in God, but I also don't believe everyone else needs to see it my way.

    I have recently, even as a practicing Christian who works at a church, felt frustrated by things that people have said to me lately. Like "that was just God's plan". I believe in God but I also believe that things happen for a reason that he isn't involved in. I guess I am a complicated Christian. Someone more religious would probably tell me it's a faith crisis or something. ;)

    Now that I know I'm welcome you'll be sorry! My stalking is over.

    Even if you did believe that (something being God's plan), it may not be what you need to hear at the time. I'm fairly certain all of us can understand that, and you have a virtual guarantee you won't hear that from us.

    As someone who has suffered multiple losses and often comes face to face regularly with parents who abuse their precious children, trust me, I have some pithy comments on the subject of God's plan. I'm right there with you. If you need an ear, let me know.

    Yup, Suja's out. I have to say that, otherwise she'll kick me out first.

    I'm thoroughly non-religious but I still manage to be a reasonably pleasant person, at least according to me. Welcome to the room.

    I too admit to stalking the NET once or twice ....always with intentions of joining in but fearing I could not keep up or am too far behind... Never thought I would not be welcomed since I know this is a very welcoming bunch I do "belong" in the secular room and have participated in other discussions here Maybe I will join in someday

    Well, I think Suja should stay as long as the warts aren't contagious....

    I love Suja, but man, I wish she'd warned me before sharing her washcloth with me. Jeesh!

I have been in the Christian room before too because I have views that could go with both.
    The bolded part was probably your nice way of intonating that some of our discussion have been not-so-awesome. Those were probably my threads. LOL. I'm the trite, insipid one of the bunch. Myles. About as exciting as a box o' hair. Pleased to meetcha. Thank you for coming in, introducing yourself and loving on these ladies. They are super awesome.

    Hi to all the new voices in the Secularium!

    My name is Britt. Just found this forum today, but felt this was the place for me. I'm leaning towards paganism, but mostly it's just the nature and mediation that seems to stick.
