Hello G.
I never claimed to know the truth, but you still think you know the truth...correct? So what makes an atheist who thinks they know the truth any different from a religious person who thinks they know the truth?
I am in no way dishonest about my beliefs, or lack of beliefs. I have read the bible. I grew up going to religious classes and attending bible study groups. I went to church for many years. I have discussed and thought about the existence or non-existence of a God for most of my life.
I like you G, but I take exception to your implication that I became an atheist without some knowledge foundation OR an open mind.
Have I let you or anyone else here "dictate" my beliefs? No.
Thanks for liking me :)
I'm sorry if I implied what makes you you, just saying what made me me.

I feel I know the truth, becouse in an instant my entire "core " being was changed. Most people have a core that never changes.

Like I. Say -He changed me, since I could never seem to change myself.

I agree th a,religious charities

Have been supporting and caring for the less fortunate

Since this country began ..first within communities,.

Now the local..national and international charities,are

Able to help more people .

Most people do NOT give for tax exemptions,

They give what they can

SOCIAL SECURITY I'd something we have paid into
All of our working lives ..Medicate the same .

Of course it was supposed to be in a lock box

Not used to fund other things,.a whole other topic

You think old people who have put in for decades
Ate LAZY if they receive back a portion of all they
Paid in ???

And the health care from Medicare..once people ate too old to work
Put them on an ice FLOE to die if they are sick???

I agree the system has been abused ...And full of fraud ..Some of these
people on SSD are total frauds,

But old folks,are not lazy by receiving the small amount they get back
that's mean ..wait till you get older...

Peter .

I had s fee shocks looming up charities ..tax exempt ..on CHARITY NAVIGATOR

judging by their top rated Charities they definitely are not biased .
Many of them secular

The charity I like SAMARITANS,PURSE ..And some Catholic and Jewish ones
Are top rated

You should look up yours ..EVERYON sHOULd
IMO..even the ones EITH low ratings ..which are not out and out frauds
Probably use mire of an actual dollar towards helping than the government does ..
Not saying people do not get HELP from UNCLE but it passes through so.much bureaucracy it's not very efficient..

A lot of popular charities spend as much on administration and fund raising as they do on help I by whatever their cause is

First you laud religion as the best non-profit entity available, and then you bash the non-religious, who make up for its tax-exemptions with our taxes, for wanting to see results worth lauding.

Try again?

Pull out your calculator from under the Twinkie boxes:
2,000,000 illegal abortions/year before RvW.
1,200,000 legal abortions/year after RvW.
There are 4 million live births per year. 3 times the number of pregnant women do what you couldn't contemplate on your best day: give birth, than decide they don't want to accept the risk of pregnancy to their life or health, and abort.

Be grateful.

Just to be clear..see my posts to Peter.

Many Tax exempt entities are non religious . A great percentage are secular
Ok a lot if rich people give to support things
That do nothing to help the masses..the tax exempt goes to the
Charity and the people take it off their taxes..And no one gets fed
But themselves

Most if us try as we can ..to help others..And we don't do it for tax reasons either
But calling out only the religious charities..IMO
Not true.

Some do better than others at using the resources
Given in donations.fir the purposes they support

Have you looked up the rating on your favorite charity
On that Charity Navigator .

Many use s lot if their money to get MORE money .

Like I would never give to some of those TV ad people .

Evening all!

Well, here's an update for anyone who's interested...and a thorough annoyance for everyone else.
Mom's making progress--though not as much as she'd like.
Dad had quite a nasty(and scary) fall last Saturday night and spent about six hours alone on the floor until he was able to drag himself up to bed.
Once informed of this I said, "That's it! You're going to the doctor and I want no arguments from you!"
Argue he did, but eventually acquiesced. Come Tuesday(earliest appointment I could get w/o E.R.) we can't see his doctor, but the Nurse Practitioner who's worried about his EKG results. After consulting with a physician they decide we've got to go to the E.R. for a full series of tests.
He's resistant, angry, uncooperative, but I wouldn't have any of it. So, I suggested the E.R. of the hospital where my mother's currently located.
Long story short, we get there, he's admitted, and is now currently there as well. Mom's got the better view--the one overlooking P.J. harbor. He's got an up-close-and-personal view of the chapel right outside his window--the Polish Catholics get their revenge! ;)
He's considered too unsteady on his legs and isn't allowed to walk by himself. Mom, who was given the tentative date of this Thursday for discharge, was told that she'll have to be sent to a secondary "rehab" unit down on the south shore. She's furious with me because I refused to "vouch" for her as being "o.k." to be discharged--she needs 24/7 supervision in case anything should happen(which I can't provide.) She threw a helluva temper-tantrum with her CNA last night because she "wants to get the f*ck out of here and go home...NOW!"
Needless to say, I was nothing short of mortified.
Yet as I told her--and to my amusement, my father supported, "What should happen if you fall, and you're all by yourself and unable to get up...?"
Didn't placate her much, but I think(hope) this got through to her.

Uggh! If I manage to get through this with a full head of hair, or even my sanity, it'll be nothing short of a miracle...

Best all!

John.

Yeah, the frustration quotient ramps up when they no longer feel in control, but it can't be helped. My ex is a CNA; there's nothing to be embarrassed about. They've heard it all before, and probably with worse epithets. They don't take it personally.

Patience is going to be in short supply for a while--been there, done that!
