I'm just keeping this for my own records. It's a reply to a very verbally abusive boy.
AND the Gospel of John was written by Jesus' LOVER! http://en.wikipedia.org/wi
Eric, your epithets against people with behavioral health challenges stigmatize people with real disabilities. Your language is judgmental, abusive and hateful. You misspelled my name. You don't know my gender. You assume a lot about my motives and dismiss my pain as "crazy" and call me a "piece of shit," simply because you do not understand me or have any interest in doing so. I am full of fear and pain at the abuse of such xian behaviors as these. It is called "church damage." My experience is legitimate and you could learn a lot from it. Instead, you choose to be personally offended by the fact that I have to defend myself against the encroachment of a superstitious theocracy that would call me demon possessed (their explanation of "crazy,"), perverted, damned, not womanly, pagan, heathen and even a devil worshiper (I have a neighbor, spreading that rumor to anybody who will listen at the mail boxes. Her "evidence" against me? I have goats.) So, before you go sharpening your nails for my crucifiction and lighting your torches for my immolation as a witch, maybe you might want to consider that xian crap causes REAL suffering to REAL people and is not, in any way, a theoretical exercise to me.
And I do, in fact, have behavioral health challenges. I was beaten into brain damage by a sanctimonious mother who was sure I was possessed by demons. I rest my case.
I HATE religious fundamentalism.
