The extremist "Christians" that want to kill people just because they are different from them are the true evil on this planet.

18. Is it grooming when you take your kids to church???

Grooming: The action of preparing a child for a meeting with the intention of committing a sexual offense.

I think it is a fair question.

Some christians take offense but I do believe it's child abuse to subject a child to religion.
Let them grow up without it and see if they ever need it.

"we" have to be loud, because MSM doesn't put the truth out there.

I wonder if it makes the conservatives stop and think about what they are doing, even a little bit.?

Makes me thin of that old song “Harper Valley PTA”

My wife is a proud and grateful native Appalachian from Clinton, TN (yes, *that* Clinton. The high school bombing; the Clinton 12).

I can't wait to show her this. In rant, she's a lot like this woman. She should be lauded all over the country for her wisdom, her words, her fervor.

I would intentionally avoid going to my grandparents on Sundays because I knew I would be dragged to church. I dearly loved and cherished them but they never missed church. They were on the extreme side of being poor and to watch my grandmother put her only 5 or 10 dollars in the offering plate, with the preacher knowing how poor they were always made me angry as hell.
