I'd suggest putting up a thread in the introductions section so everyone can say hi, if you plan on hanging around.

I don't plan to hang around, sorry, I just thought it might be helpful to present a secular explanation for what happened to the OP. I'm not actually an atheist but neither do I approve of many things that go on in the church, including the OP's experience. The more people who know about this stuff, the better - knowledge is power.

Well..I mean if you honestly think you have something that nobody here has heard or put forth in the 2 and a half years since this thread died, nobody can stop you. But shit-and-run posters generally aren't looked to well upon around here.

Well, I have done a quick search and couldn't find anything here, and no-one gave the OP a substantial reply. But I did ask if people would be interested, and if you are not, then I will go away. I'm just looking to present something that not many people seem to know about, in the hope it will do some good.

Start a new thread and imply away. I love to argue!
 
"Each nation has created a god, and the god has always resembled his creators. He hated and loved what they hated and loved, and he was invariably found on the side of those in power. Each god was intensely patriotic, and detested all nations but his own. All these gods demanded praise, flattery, and worship. Most of them were pleased with sacrifice, and the smell of innocent blood has ever been considered a divine perfume. All these gods have insisted upon having a vast number of priests, and the priests have always insisted upon being supported by the people, and the principal business of these priests has been to boast about their god, and to insist that he could easily vanquish all the other gods put together." Ingersoll
