Thanks for sharing, Bob! i think the more people share their struggles, the less there is a stigma. The evangelical church is HORRIBLE at dealing with people struggling with depression and/or mental illness. Love the analogy of feeling like you are from the moon some days! Pax, Adele

i resonated with this Bart: 'What exactly is "loving" about a deity that would sentence someone to eternal burning? I mean, damn, can we please move on past these Neanderthal beliefs?' The views we have of hell are from Dante's Inferno anyways.

Fear of the other. It's a great fear because you don't know the other. It can instill a deep-seated hatred of the other if not managed well. That's what homophobia is - hatred and fear of the other. i fear... Continue reading
