33. Everything about belief or non-belief is subjective...
What are we supposed to do, discount our own subjective experiences because we're not perfect? Nobody does that, nor should they.

The apparent abuse/co-dependency syndrome between Christians and their God is certainly nothing I had in mind before I became involved in discussions about Christianity with Christians. The similarity between the believer/God & victim/abuser relationship simply dawned on me one day during one such discussion. I can't help that, you know? My mind just sort of puts things together, and there's not a lot I can do about it.

If my experience amounts to an "insult" to Christians, well, I got it from Christians, so there you go.

I don't see why some here are so combative about this. I thought perhaps this was a venue for freethinkers, but instead I sense a knife at my throat.
