Churches closing their doors in record numbers

Less churches but believers are still around. They want it their way. and i don't mean Burger King. The twisted and misused godspel is becoming anything they want it to be or say.
NO MORE PASSWORDS?
DenoPenno comments on Jul 9, 2022:
I'm not a fan of Google Chrome but I do use their search engine mostly. I'm definitely not a fan of others controlling my passwords. Often they play stupid games with me, even calling me, and then crow loudly about how they are protecting me and my password. "Hey, Deno. Somebody with a different ISP signed in to your account. Let us know if it was you." Hey, Dummo. It was me using a VPN. Sorry." :)
Churches closing their doors in record numbers
DenoPenno comments on Jul 8, 2022:
Just the opposite in my town. We had a large building that was a showcase for cars and car repair. For reasons unknown to me the owner turned it into a church. As the pandemic was ending in our area they started building again and turned this into mega church. The heads up I'm getting here is that you can pretty much do as you wanna do as long as you believe in mega Jesus.

Medical ethical questions arising from political bans on abortion Post by Rebecca Solnit ...
DenoPenno comments on Jul 7, 2022:
Many living things have a heartbeat. This is for the circulation of blood not for determining if human. A tapeworm also has a heartbeat and I would not want one in my body. Todd Akin, a GOP politico from Missouri, was once heard to remark that a woman's body had a way of dealing with sperm so as not to get pregnant if it was "legitimate rape." Think on that statement and be aware that this is the mentality we are going through yet today with political bans on women's healthcare. If they succeed we will be having funerals for a miscarriage.

Things appear to be heading in that direction. Neighbor spying up on neighbor and reporting to our American Taliban, checking to see what you received in the mail and from whom, no crossing state lines for Womens Healthcare, Imagine a roadblock where people in the car are showing I.D. and they find a pregnant woman in the car and make it known that she had better still be pregnant when they return. Packages from Canada and elsewhere will be checked and x-rayed because we need no pills mailed in of any kind that match birth control or morning after, or chemical abortion. Lots of new jobs opening up here and it is really not what it seems. It is all about power.
Letters From An American 07/02/2022

DenoPenno comments on Jul 4, 2022:
I think I can go along with this. Just recently a man was telling me something on a site and I had to brand him as a white supremacist. In protest he told me that white supremacy is as hard to find as a pink unicorn. Somewhere in Christian Nationalism or Republican Jesus is where his beliefs stand but people like him do not see it. They carry their own branding words and put it on the left. They want power and many of them think it was Antifa that did the January 6th insurrection. Somehow Donnie Boy woke them up and Donnie and John Wayne are going to come up out of the sea and guide them.

It's all more of the "America founded on religion" bullshit that so many want you to believe. It simply was not so and many different people from all over came here. In recent convo with my former boss on this subject he said the problem was that if you stayed in England you had to be Church of England. This last one is another fallacy that Christians want to use. America is too diversified to ever be "a Christian Nation."

Reconciling my atheism with my racial/ethnic identity and my passion for different cultures
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2022:
My now dead stepfather once told me that I think about things too much. I agree and this helps me to understand myself and others. Today I can look back and see exactly why I did certain things in my life. This is not foolproof. At a recent reunion my longtime friend Larry recalled an incident but he does not remember me being there. A book gives you different concepts of things and people have different concepts as well.
So being an atheist, one of the most significant things that I struggling with is that since I also ...
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2022:
In reality there is no evidence for or against gods in any form. All we have on either side of the argument is claims and no evidence. Logic and evidence is everything and you cannot use your scripture book as evidence. You might be going to the wrong persons Hell. :) Demons, spirits, and Bigfoot an flying horses come out of the mythos that people create for themselves in order to understand things. Jesus was not the only virgin birth if you go back in time. Each culture has a story. Things change with time and interests do too. That has been my experience.
I went to the bookstore (Borders) today.
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2022:
I stayed inside all day and watched my movies and TV programs. Finished the third season of Stranger Things and went to the Millie Bobby Brown fan page to comment on the series. They are now going to( or are already in) Germany for a Comic Con visit that promotes the actors and their work. Later in the day I downloaded all of the Shout Factory films and movies to find that my Facebook friend, Michelle Lintel, is there in her complete series of Black Scorpion. That was a tongue in cheek show similar to Adam West's Batman. In fact West and several others guest starred in Black Scorpion. The Von Lintel family must be proud but Michelle is busy raising baby Charlie these days. I used to read books and still catch an e-pub now and then if I like the titles and subjects.

DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2022:
I have had similar experiences online. Recently a former soldier who thought he was a patriot claimed to have been wounded 3 times. He came across as a white supremacist that believed Trump's bullshit. I guess people have been crossing our Southern border for the last 6 years or so. Obama had more of the illegals sent back than anyone. When I said I am also ex military but I believe in equality for all, he told me in a bad way to shove that shit right up my ass. I said politely that I am done. People of this caliber believe that Antifa are the bad actors that did the January 6th insurrection. The real conspiracy comes from the left and the white and right must take over. No one will replace them. Jesus, I would hate to have that much venom in me. It will eat you up.
A joke about second hand cars.
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2022:
I drive a 2004 Monte Carlo that is a second hand car. Bought it for $6000 and it is a fairly good car. A few problems here and there but you can expect that. Right now I'm over 200000 miles and working for more because I will keep this car as long as I can. Personally I have no preference of car names and models. Two new cars in my lifetime but I just know how to pick cars. Had this one for over 10 years now.

DenoPenno comments on Jul 2, 2022:
I believe this and think these are very true words. We are storytellers and are the very fictional characters that we create. This is why we have tall tales of certain people. Truth gets exaggerated to account for the myth. Some things we are aware of like stories of Paul Bunyan. Let Jesus come along and all of his stories are accepted by the gullible. There is an inner fear that something bad will happen if you do not lay claim to this. In a recent phone call to a widowed woman I had not seen in over 40 years she immediately got defensive when she mentioned her faith and bible belief. I told her I understood what she was talking about and things became normal again. I'm sure she had heard that I am no longer a believer and she possibly thought I would verbally attack her. We become what we want to become, or as close to it as we can imagine.
Maybe that church is on to something:

DenoPenno comments on Jul 1, 2022:
Religion gives false hope and security. It may unite people but it is following a false hope telling you about pie in the sky and an afterlife. Mankind has such a fear of death but it seems they worship death. This is not for me. Can I pinpoint when we left the "clever ape" stage? No more than I can present your ever present god.

DenoPenno comments on Jun 30, 2022:
I certainly hope we do not allow it to happen. Following right along with you here, what I see is people who are afraid. They need something and the powers that be (or want to be) have decided the answer is in religion. If you believe long enough and hard enough it will happen. Just pray more and often. People need hope of something. Mix religion and fear together and politics falls right in line. I have one daughter who wants to see her murdered son again and another who was operated on for breast cancer recently. The only way they can get what they need is through religion. This growing fear with people of today goes so far that they think their god wakes them up in the morning. As for me, I still use an alarm clock.
Falling into the (non) religious trap?
DenoPenno comments on Jun 30, 2022:
I understand your worry on this. Many already claim that atheism is just another religion. We have no rules, no doctrine, and no gods but this does not stop people from making the claim. One man who influenced me was Jerry DeWitt, a former pastor and the first graduate of the Clergy Project. I ran onto some of his You Tube videos and I understand Jerry still runs a secular church because many people seemed to want one. None of that is for me, but Jerry is a remarkable man.

DenoPenno comments on Jun 30, 2022:
Abortion in America is compared with murder because of the nonsense that American's believe. One of the biggest is that abortion is used as birth control. Why would anybody be so dumb as to believe this? Even so, the gullible want to believe it. Clinics have free pills for those that need them. Strange that Islam has a more tolerant view on abortion. Stranger yet that the GQP is pushing a political agenda that seems to be sucking in Evangelicals bigtime. In the last year the Republicans gained a million new members. That's right. One million.

Now back to the common sense thing again. The officer who transported Mr. Cox knew that he was injured. With the right attorney Mr. Cox and his family will get a lot of money but this will not be overnight.

It's speech that should be protected just as much as Christian prayers, right?
DenoPenno comments on Jun 28, 2022:
If Mary and Jesus were real people then Joseph was the father. The bible gives his genealogy with that intent in mind. If you examine ancient writings of that time you will find other god men or godlike creatures all being born from a virgin. In fact, most of us know that things like this are not true. LOL There is also no mention of Joseph finding Mary hanging around Roman soldiers. :)

When it comes to god and sports some people just do not get it.

US Supreme Court Strikes Down Landmark Abortion Decision Roe v. Wade | Twitter
DenoPenno comments on Jun 24, 2022:
Most of us that see or read news knew this was coming. What I do not understand is the Supreme Court acting on its own to take something away that has been with us for 50 years. People have bitched about Roe v Wade off and on because of that one word -- abortion. We let them get away with terms like about clinic, abortion doctor, etc. This leaves most of the right believing women used abortion rather than birth control pills. The far right does not even believe in birth control pills. This is all a big sham that will come back to bite them in the ass. It is also one big strike against women's healthcare and a woman's right to choose and have control of her own body. Let's be honest. This does not make abortion go away. It makes abortion go undercover without capable care. Listening to it all on PBS today one authority claimed that Roe v Wade was not part of our Constitution and did it in such a way as to claim that makes the decision valid. I thought he was avoiding the questions.

I can identify with a lot of this although I was not religious until my parents started going to church. I was about 12 at the time and today I connect this attitude with the fact that my youngest sister did not make it out of the hospital after she was born. It is like most evangelicals to ask or wonder what happened to her and say that all things happen for a reason. I know what happened to her. She died. She died and went into a grave. Evangelicals make it all much bigger than this.

Exactly. The rest of humanity is not special and privileged and your group is the only one with the truth. Nice plot background for a movie but I'm finding adults of all ages today who believe it. Some also seem sad that I cannot grasp it, especially with my fundamentalist background.
The American South is fired up over this, they truly believe this
DenoPenno comments on Jun 18, 2022:
Straight out of the QAnon playbook and believed by fired up church people who follow Trump, Bannon, and others. Many think this will happen supernaturally in the twinkling of an eye. Recently I was in a 40 minute phone conversation with a woman from my past. Sadly she believes this and she attends the Assemblies of God church. A softer take on this is that many now fully believe the Burger King motto of "have it your way."
At one time there was supposedly separation of church and state but suddenly churches have expanded ...
DenoPenno comments on Jun 18, 2022:
Once I was in a church where others claimed that some of the things they believed are "a good idea." The buybull is not concerned with good ideas and putting politics in the church is a reflection of who would support the mixing of church and state rather than separation. I feel this is because of "Merica" being founded as a "Christian Nation." So many believe that and I find it very often. Believers want to include everyone who came here in that worn out line. Another big problem I have is the "abortion clinic." Women's healthcare is not done at an abortion clinic with abortion doctors, etc. It is "Planned Parenthood" and not an abortion clinic. Abortion can be performed there but we have all allowed the names of the clinics and doctors to be hijacked. This gives the religious and politicians who use them all the ammo they need. Now even the media speaks of abortion clinics and abortion doctors. Someone should be working to overturn this idiocy and not Roe v. Wade.
Loose lips sink ships.

Exactly. This is like the American sniper movie where the sniper is about to get off a good shot and his phone rings.
This is why a person has to be extremely cautious whenever calling the police.
DenoPenno comments on Jun 17, 2022:
I saw a movie once where a woman called the police because she could not get her cat out of a tree. A policeman appeared and shot the cat out of the tree. Today this appears more likely than not.

DenoPenno comments on Jun 17, 2022:
Lindell does not need their money or their sales. He is making millions with his bizarre far out claims.
The bad news: Bannon got a pardon on his fraud conviction.
DenoPenno comments on Jun 17, 2022:
He got millions pretending to finish Trump's wall. People are really gullible.
Has anyone seen the new Top Gun movie? If yes what did you think?
DenoPenno comments on Jun 17, 2022:
I'm not a fan but I saw the preview and quickly decided this movie is not for me. The preview shows a bunch of flying airplanes.

There is some talk in here about the proper gander. Then others want to monkey around.
One of the fundamental misconceptions many atheists have is that they consider religion to be ...
DenoPenno comments on Jun 16, 2022:
I do not need any of the functions of religions and consider myself to be without gods.

Again at my daughter's place. The Sangria drink is a non-alcohol beverage from Mexico. I get them at Save A lot or Dollar Tree.
