Continuing saga of ex eb squabble , over believer verses non believer views
One comment was
Tam Tambourine It’s right here in the page description: the page is to exchange news, information and reminiscences, and ask questions, and not to debate religious opinion. Many of us have gone through more than enough turmoil in our journey out of the brethren, and just want a peaceful place to connect with others from similar backgrounds, on the basis of what connects us, not what divides us. This is why drama on this page is not received well.
It isn’t that we are taking the soft option or hanging on to EB ways – for example, personally I’m a nonreligious lesbian with leftwing political views – but there are appropriate places for controversial discourse, and this is not one of them.
But hold on
hold on … whoa hold on … hold on here
Theist on these forum are often the ones constantly commenting on and on about their own view how they’d feel “God blesses” them . Or God loves us. Or their view how God provides for us. And so on.
Good luck with the idea of seeing it cease as use as a platform for controversial discourse of religious opinion
Good luck with that ever happening?
Lets just watch and see AND NOTE how it run from here on out then. We can always begin to count and document times whenever forum is continued to be used as a platform for somebodies expression of their own religious opinion ( their own view)
We can take note of that
Lets also count how many times some Craig Hoyle type decide to step up to the plate, so as to act consistently too
That could be fun
Could be interesting future prospect (to try and stay true to the said intention)
Considering how. This is what will often still happen (I figure)
1.Theist lay the claim that they’d feel God blesses people (or whatever else other faith belief claim it might happen to be, they express. Of which there also are a “fairly long” list of ,of what constantly come up from time to time, regular as clock work)
may will counter theist claim they had made ,by perhaps stating how they’d themselves feel that God is complete waste of time, and a unfortunate joke, and cannot be able to bless anyone considering how a-God also doesn’t even exist outside of theist faith
Both of the above participant above, are both using the forum as a platform
Lets see if the Craig Hoyle type ex eb can approach matters consistently ?
That’s what most interesting to me about the situation. The study to see if some form of consistency apply
The thing is, for some ex eb, to imply, that atheism has played “no part” in our eb “past experiences of our previous life” among Brethren.
Is like to try to and deny the existence, of atheist, who had in fact existed silently among Brethren, of who had been also forced to “need to” remain silent, and exist within eb rank .
To suggest atheism plays no part, in ex eb past history
Is to also try to deny that had happen
I figure you’d be pushing shit uphill to try and prove it so?
I can remember, being atheist minded myself, from times of my early youth
difference problem ALWAYS was, that we atheist minded children, were born into an existence where by we’d then be forced to need to also remain silent, so as to conform to belief of the-others demand
And as if that didn’t cause us “closet atheist” enough turmoil, back then
Same old shit still continue to happen even still so today
Still today they continue to act inconsistently
Theist are still figuring like as if they feel like their own sense of turmoil, is somehow consider of higher valued substance, to what atheist are supposed to be seen like or something?
Who can tell for sure
There is still this same old tendency , to like to “pretend” as if, perhaps platforms may remain “free from any expression” of participant religious “view”
This same old simlar tendency too, to shut certain views down
Simlar tendency to pretend like as if discussion is addressed consistently . Without bias
And so at the end of the day. No great surprises then either. Is there?
That religious “liberty” isn’t really been honestly worth the paper what its been written about on
